MASSIVE SPOILERS: Arrow finale details revealed

May 7th, 2014 by Marc Comments









OK, so the finale of Arrow is next week and, let’s be honest, you love it, we love it, but believability is not a massive part of this show…

So, with that in mind, The Seattle PI has seen the last episode and is happy to give away some of the gory details. They write: “It’s no secret that John Barrowman will reprise his role as the Dark Archer, Malcolm Merlyn, 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. Now she has a brother [Stephen Amell] who lied to her and has done something unforgivable and no mother. On the flip side, she has Malcolm Merlyn saying, ‘I will never lie to you, Thea.'”

So Thea may be set to go to the dark side with Malcolm, huh? But what of Slade’s supersoldiers set on destroying the city and everything Oliver loves?: “Malcolm won’t be the only former member of the League of Assassins returning in the season-ender. In fact, Sara (Caity Lotz) returns to town with Nyssa al Ghul (Katrina Law) and the League in tow. “[Sara] went to go get help because when you’re fighting an army, you need an army,” Kreisberg says. “She goes and gets Nyssa and she comes back with the League. It’s the Arrow, Canary, Roy [Colton Haynes] and the League of Assassins versus Slade and his Mirakuru army for the city.”

Sound like it’s going to be a MASSIVE season end and we can’t wait, but what of Oliver’s child? And will we see Ra’s? It’s not the cleverest thing on TV but you’ll be hard-pressed to find anything more entertaining…

The finale will air on May 14.

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
