Arrow - The Complete Fifth Season

What haunts a hero most?

In "Arrow" - The Complete Fifth Season, now available on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD, the launching point for The CW network's domination of the DC Comics primetime universe, the journey of Star City's vigilante Emerald Archer, Oliver Queen (played by Stephen Amell) are is reexamined when an adversary from Oliver's past begins to take action to bring down Oliver and ultimately destroy his entire world!

After the death of one of his closest friends and fighting allies, Laurel (Katie Cassidy) the Black Canary, Oliver is determined to make good on his promise to save his city. He begins by assuming the role of Star City's mayor working from within to rescue the inner workings from the corruption that had taken a choke hold of the city's most vulnerable. With Black Canary's sacrifice and his former allies taking a break from their heroics, Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) takes matters in hand!

With the help of Curtis Holt (Echo Kellum) the newly minted Mister Terrific, the pair seek our some new recruits in a strategic attempt to reignite Team Arrow, but the Green Arrow's legacy may be tarnished as the truth begins to circulate about the Arrow's early days as a vengeful vigilante. A new enemy is hunting Oliver and his friends, and is preparing to exact his own revenge from within, even as a new Canary emerges and Wild Dog rallies to make the team.

The Fifth Season of "Arrow" proves that Oliver Queen still has some surprises left in his quiver. The landmark 100th episode is also part of the epic crossover event "Invasion!" that unites the Green Arrow with his super friends The Flash (Grant Gustin) and Supergirl (Melissa Benoist). From the intense urban warfare to the meta-human confrontation that pits the forces or good versus an alien invasion, "Arrow" - The Complete Fifth Season is still proving it can hit the mark every time!

All 23 Season Five episodes are captured in high-definition and presented with additional Deleted Scenes and featurettes that include background on the newest members of the team and a special look at this season's "big bad" Prometheus - a villain with ties to Oliver Queen's origins and his first missions as the the hooded archer that first menaced Starling City. Another special feature explores the secrets of the "Invasion!" crossover event that marked the series 100th milestone!
