The second season of Arrow went out with epic heroics, shattering heartbreak, and us waiting to see whomay be next to take a fall because Slade Wilson (Manu Bennet), wants to rain down hurt on Oliver Queen, The Arrow (Stephen Amell).
And on top of all the action and sorrow, Malcolm Merlyn, played by Comicpalooza guest, John Barrowman, finally connected with his long lost daughter, Thea Queen (Mia Dearden).
In this episode, "Unthinkable", help from the League of Assassins and stopping the government from leveling Starling City as Malcolm Merlyn and daughter riding off into the darkness in a big black limo.
With all of the craziness this episode , you would think that season three can't get crazier, but, you would be wrong.
Barrowman is ready to come out swinging next season, and had this to say in a recent Entertainment Weekly article:
" What I’m doing at the moment is trying to get in with Thea while she’s emotionally down, so I can control her. Malcolm has to learn how to control people emotionally and physically if he’s going to not lose the people around him, but also if he’s going to build the world around him that he needs in order to succeed.”
Merlyn was the villain in season one, and an archer and warrior more than equal to the Arrow.
The character is based on a DC Comics character, simply called Merlyn, that is the opposite number of the company's character Green Arrow, and has taken on everyone from the Justice League to Batman in the comic books.
Mr. Barrowman will be at the con from Friday through Monday, and will be the guest for a panel on Saturday May 24th from 4 until 5 pm.
