Who’s This New Guy With a Bow in CW’s ‘Arrow’

- 11-27-12Comics, TV Posted by Mark Poynter

It must be my day for posting articles about shows and movies with bows and arrows. This one’s about CW‘s Arrow episode nine entitled: Year End. This episode introduces a new bow shooting character who just happens to be killing the bad guys on Oliver’s list. Of course this mysterious ‘Dark” archer is labeled as Oliver’s “toughest adversary yet.”

Who is it, could it be Merlyn the Dark Archer, a mercenary for the League of Assassins, or The Rainbow Archer, or Archie the Archer (No I am not making that up, he really is a villain in the comics), maybe it’s Black Arrow, or The Crimson Archer, and there is always Lord Kalesque? There’s a ton of arrow using villains to choose from.

Check out the stills and the episode plot synopsis below the gallery and you can check out the other photos at GreenArrowTV for the full gallery of episode pictures.

IT’S CHRISTMAS TIME AT THE QUEEN HOUSEHOLD — Oliver (Stephen Amell) discovers that after he and his father went missing, Moira (Susanna Thompson) and Thea (Willa Holland) stopped celebrating Christmas. Determined to make up for lost time and restore a sense of normalcy to the Queen household, Oliver decides to throw the family a Christmas party. Meanwhile, Tommy (Colin Donnell) asks Laurel (Katie Cassidy) to spend Christmas with him but she points out that Christmas was also her sister Sara’s birthday and she needs to be with her father (Paul Blackthorne). Tommy suggests changing things up might be the best way for everyone to heal but Laurel isn’t sure her father is ready for that. Meanwhile, Diggle (David Ramsey) tells Oliver someone is murdering the people on his father’s list with arrows, which sends Oliver off to face his toughest adversary yet. John Dahl directed the episode with story by Greg Berlanti & Marc Guggenheim and teleplay by Andrew Kreisberg & Marc Guggenheim (109)

    I’m really hoping that it’s Merlyn,
    but a few of my buddies that work with me at DISH think it will just be someone
    from the League of Assassins. Either way, Arrow has been very impressive with
    its array of DC characters so far this season. I enjoy the episodes so much
    that I’m saving this entire season to my DISH Hopper to relive the moments and
    battle nostalgia when I need to. It’s nice to have a DVR with a 2TB hard drive
    for this time of year; I can finally save everything I want to. Cheers to more
    archers and whoever else makes it to the small screen this season.
