Malcolm Merlyn is back!
It’s no secret that John Barrowman will reprise his role as the Dark Archer for the season finale of Arrow, but we now know why! As Thea (Willa Holland) prepares to leave Starling City, she now finds herself trapped in the train station with some of Slade Wilson’s (Manu Bennett) Mirakuru army who are hell-bent on causing chaos and taking lives. But never fear, Thea will be just fine, thanks to the believed-dead Malcolm.
“Thea will find herself in a precarious predicament and she will be saved by her father,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg teases. “Malcolm is going to offer her what she doesn’t have anymore. That was part of our math with killing Moira [Susanna Thompson]. If we were going to send Thea in that direction, she needed to have nothing pulling her back here.
