The death of Tommy at the end of the first season of Arrow was a tough pill to swallow. Thankfully, we’ll be getting him back soon. Unfortunately, it’s only for one episode and it will take place in a flashback.
Colin Donnell will reprise his role of Tommy Merlyn in the mid-October episode of Arrow titled “Sara”. We know Oliver has made his way back to the mainland in the flashbacks and Maseo will be passing on Amanda Waller’s first kill order to Oliver in this episode. Unfortunately, when he looks down the scope of the riffle he’ll see his best friend, Tommy. Obviously he didn’t kill Tommy back then but it will be interesting to see how he reacts to Amanda’s order.
Meanwhile, back in the present day, Quentin calls on the Arrow when another archer comes to Starling City and starts shooting at businessmen. Diggle reaches out to his A.R.G.U.S contacts to learn the identity of the other archer: Simon Lacroix (guest star Matt Ward), who goes by the codename Komodo. When the team hits a rough patch in their mission to take down Komodo they get help from a surprising source: Laurel. Laurel will also struggle when she debates sharing a secret about Sara with their father.
Finally, Oliver is worried that he hasn’t heard from Thea in a long time and Roy is forced to tell him the truth about why she left town. Plus, Ray Palmer pursues Felicity. Will Oliver be jealous?
