This is it, Arrow fans! Season 3 of the CW series draws to a close on Wednesday, May 13 and the trailer for the episode, "My Name Is Oliver Queen" teases the return of a familiar face, a punch to the face, and what could prove to be a pretty epic face-off as "the final battle" nears...
SPOILER ALERT: We're about to get a bit more spoilery with "My Name Is Oliver Queen," as we have some photos from the episode, some of which clue us in to what Barry Allen will be up to, so if you'd rather not know, turn back now!

Barry Allen returns! It looks like The Flash is dropping in to lend a hand, and some words of wisdom to Team Arrow as they consider how (or whether) to deal with Oliver. But when and how does The Flash show up? These photos give us a better idea...

It's helpful to have a guy with super-speed on your side when you're in a pickle (or locked in a cell with Ra's al Ghul's people guarding you)...

The Flash

The Flash is the mentioned familiar face. The punch to the face appears to be from Diggle to Oliver...

punch

And it's really not that hard to understand why Diggle might be very mad, given how "This is Your Sword" left off. Oliver abandoned his team in a cell with a virus. It looks like they recovered (or are on their feet, at the very least). Of course, that punch might be in response to something else. It's hard to say. But looking at this pic, it seems like Oliver and Felicity are having one of their moments...

And it kind of looks like Oliver's having a moment with his, um, wife? fiancé? former girlfriend's former girlfriend? Nyssa.

Nyssiver?

As for the final face-off, am I alone in thinking it's a bad sign that Oliver is seen saying the titular "My name is Oliver Queen" line in the trailer? If this is him showing his true colors to Ra's, wouldn't they save that bit of awesomeness for the episode and not reveal it in the trailer? Maybe my concern is just my own pessimism at work, as I'm almost convinced Season 3 will end on a dark note, possibly with Oliver going full Ra's. Is that completely out of the question? It would certainly leave us with the kind of game-changer that finales are notorious for. Or perhaps Oliver will somehow manage to get out of this situation with his soul intact.

The description for "My Name Is Oliver Queen" offers few clues, beyond Ra's al Ghul's final plan, and Oliver's big decision...
THE HEART-STOPPING SEASON FINALE — Everyone’s lives are in danger as Ra’s al Ghul (guest star Matt Nable) puts forth his final plan. Oliver/Al Sah-him (Stephen Amell) must decide if he’s strong enough to take on this new role and what it will mean for everyone on Team Arrow, and his soul.


Arrow airs Wednesday at 8:00 p.m. ET on the CW.
