Find out why they're coming back...
It's been previously reported that John Barrowman will return as Malcolm Merlyn in the season finale of Arrow, but it wasn't revealed why yet. Now, TV Guide has spoken with producer Andrew Kreisberg and found out the motives for the Dark Archer's return.
Kreisberg said, "Thea will find herself in a precarious predicament and 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 have nothing pulling her back here. Now she has a brother 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.'"
Also returning are Nyssa al-Ghul (Katrina Law) and Sara (Caity Lotz), bring the League of Assassins in for a big confrontation with Deathstroke's army. Kreisberg said of this, "[Sara] went to go get help because when you're fighting an army, you need an army. 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."
The season finale, "Unthinkable," will air on May 14th at 8 PM ET/PT on The CW.
