This just in, new episode photos and previews from the Wednesday May 7th episode of ARROW. Direct from The CW, “MALCOLM MERLYN RETURNS — Oliver (Stephen Amell) rallies his team as Slade’s (Manu Bennett) soldiers attack the city. Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) gets a call from S.T.A.R. Labs with game-changing news and Thea (Willa Holland) comes face-to-face with her father – Malcolm Merlyn (guest star John Barrowman). Nick Copus directed the episode written by Jake Coburn & Ben Sokolowski”
Added executive producer Andrew Kreisberg at a recent press event, “All hell is going to break loose in the city, and Thea will find herself in a precarious predicament. She will be saved by her father. Malcolm is going to offer her what she doesn’t have anymore. That was part of our math with killing Moira. If we were going to send Thea in that direction, she needed to not have anything pulling her back — now that she has a brother who lied to her and has done something unforgivable and no mother. Then on the flip-side, she has Malcolm Merlyn saying: “I will never lie to you Thea.”
