Tommy Merlyn Suits Up In New Arrow Images
With Arrow about to complete its sixth season in a matter of weeks, it seems like we the viewers should be focusing our attention on the final battle to come with Ricardo Diaz, but we’ve had this eleventh hour curveball thrown at us. We are, of course, talking about the matter concerning a returning Tommy Merlyn.
If you’ve seen the trailer for next week’s episode (you can view it up above if you haven’t), then you’re aware of how Oliver Queen’s previously deceased friend drops in during his trial in full Green Arrow regalia. In fact, this is something that actor Colin Donnell had previously teased on social media, but we’re slowly getting more context via advance promotional material.
This time, it’s the network releasing a heck of a lot of images from the episode in question, most of which show exciting courtroom proceedings. But, if you stick around for a bit, you’ll eventually see a fair amount of photos showing Tommy masquerading as the Emerald Archer.
Right now, your guess is as good as ours as to how Tommy is walking around. Is he a doppelganger from a parallel Earth? Is he actually the Human Target making a surprise comeback? No matter what the solution may be, the wait to find out will be agonizing.
