The CW is continuing with its odd policy this season of releasing episode photos far ahead of the air date. Although we still haven’t had a season premiere, we already have photos for episode 2 of the final season of Arrow.

No synopsis was released for this episode, all we know is it’s entitled “Welcome to Hong Kong.” Of particular note is that the Monitor (LaMonica Garrett) pays Oliver (Stephen Amell) a visit. With the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover not kicking off until Dec. 8, you have to wonder why he is already appearing. Must he prepare Oliver for what is to come?

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