Arrow offered only the quickest tease of Dolph Lundgren’s flashback villain “Kovar,” but with Season 5 quickly gearing up for its new villains, Lundgren has finally stepped out of the shadows to break Oliver. Catch a dapper Dolph and new team photos in the first official preview for next week’s “So It Begins.”

The CW unveiled a full photo set from next week’s hour, which features only a few shots of Lundgren’s new big bad intimidating Oliver (while wearing a tuxedo!). Elsewhere, it looks like some major commotion from Prometheus has brought the whole of Team Arrow out in their Sunday (Wednesday?) best.

So reads the official “So It Begins” synopsis:


When Prometheus ups his killing spree, Oliver (Stephen Amell) searches for connections between the victims. Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) and Curtis (Echo Kellum) discover the victims have a mysterious link to Oliver’s past and this new secret could upend his new team. Meanwhile, Thea (Willa Holland) has a heart-to-heart with Lance (Paul Blackthorne), and Felicity considers telling Malone (guest star Tyler Ritter) the truth about her work.

You can check out the extended trailer below, and stay tuned for next week’s Arrow return.
