Yes, we are all still abuzz with the knowledge of who the Dark Archer is on the CW’s Arrow, a.k.a. Malcolm Merlyn a.k.a. The Well Dressed Man a.k.a. John Barrowman. I know!!! Yet, seeing Ollie hobbling on a cane in the hospital admitting his failure to Diggle (who once again shows why everyone needs a friend like him) and expressing his concern that the Dark Archer knew of the list and vowing to take down the mastermind just makes for great TV, doesn’t it?
John Barrowman stated what he would like to see in the remainder of the season for the freshman season of Arrow:
“I would love to go back to see where this all started, why it all happened and go into flashbacks,” he says. “That’s one thing I know works in this genre and in this type of program — when you do go back to find out why you are where you are at a given moment in time, where you have come from, and what has caused it. Back-story is beautiful. I love a beautiful back-story.”
Happily, the season picks up again on January 16th…
