There's magic in the air (quite literally) in Star City this season—and there are more secrets than just the source of that power to be found. That's why we're here to tease you with all the #DCTV Secrets hiding in each episode. If you really want to know some of the answers to these questions, check out the spoiler section... and get to the point.

You don't have to fight in the streets, we'll give up the secrets!

It's all hands on deck when Damien Darhk plays his final cards. Feuds are thrown aside for the greater good, and Star City turns into a war zone... again. As Team Arrow fights to save the world from Darhk's plans and Oliver's fate in the past takes a turn, these secrets are revealed.

  • Who is Kovar?
  • Meet Mayor Queen

Don't peek behind the mask if you don't want to know any more. But of course you do and you will.





Not Time for That Fight

At Taiana's request, Oliver stops her and the power of the idol. This means she's not able to use her new abilities against Kovar. If you recall, she mentioned wanting to stand up to the Russian dictator in the last episode.

Leonid Kovar is also known as Red Star in the comic books. He made his debut in TEEN TITANS #18. Red Star received his superpowers of energy projection and enhanced strength and speed from an exploding alien spaceship. He was a member of the Teen Titans in these earlier comics. However, in the Flashpoint timeline, Red Star was a member of H.I.V.E.'s council.

Will He Deliver Light?

After giving another rousing, optimistic speech to the citizens of Star City, Oliver is granted the mayoral title until they can hold another election. In the comics, Green Arrow has had a couple brushes with being the mayor of Star City. He campaigned for the position in WORLD'S FINEST #255, but lost to his opponent Ralph Halstead. Then, over two decades later, Oliver Queen successfully became mayor in GREEN ARROW #60.

Thanks for reading #DCTV Secrets for Arrow this season! Have a great summer, and we’ll see you here for Season Five!
