The CW seems anxious to get its shows in front of audiences this year. Instead of waiting until closer to their premieres to release images from the episodes, they’re just coming out as they please. The latest to see this happen is Arrow with a handfull of photos released.

No synopsis was released for this episode, all we know is it’s entitled “Starling City.” Of particular note is that Tommy Merlyn (Colin Donnell) and Moira Queen (Susanna Thompson) are both shown off in the photos. It’s unclear if this is a new flashback, but seeing as both characters are dead, you have to think it is.

Other notable apperances in the photos are Dinah Drake (Juliana Harkavy), Rene Ramirez (Rick Gonzalez), John Diggle (David Ramsey), and Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy).

With this being the final season fo Arrow, and everything building to the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover that kicks off on Dec. 8, expect it to be a busy season.

Arrow season 8 will debut on the CW on Oct. 15.
