The midseason finale of Arrow ended with one heck of a cliffhanger, and a new promo for the midseason premiere might go a long way in explaining it.

Spoilers ahead for Season 5 of Arrow!

The midseason finale wrapped with the late Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy) back in the Arrow Cave, alive and well. Which is strange, considering Damien Darhk killed her at the end of last season. Well, it turns out those theories of this possibly being Earth-2 Laurel could be right. We get a glimpse of Laurel turning on the team, and Oliver notes she isn’t “their” Laurel. We also see her use the trademark Canary Cry, and she doesn’t appear to be wearing the tech required to pull it off — which means she could be a meta human (like the Laurel from Earth-2).

Arrow returns Jan. 25 on The CW.
