Well, this is a surprise! Before ‘Checkmate’ even airs, The CW has decided to release the photo gallery for episode 5×17, ‘Kapiushon’. What’s rare about this photo gallery is that it looks to only be shots of flashbacks with no signs of the present day.

The photo gallery shows Oliver (Stephen Amell) in that first Hood suit once again facing off against Konstantin Kovar (Dolph Lundgren). We also see some shots of Oliver talking with Taiana’s (Elysia Rotaru) mom, Galina (Natalia Vasiluk).

Arrow returns with ‘Checkmate’ on March 15th at 8/7c on The CW.
