Just when you thought ‘Arrow’ couldn’t get any crazier. The Dec. 4 episode ‘The Scientist’ left Oliver for dead, Roy shot, and Moira possibly in league with the League of Assassins, but new photos for the Dec. 11 midseason finale reveal that things are about to get much, much worse.
Leave Roy (Colton Haynes) alone, Brother Blood! Tantalizing new pictures from the Dec. 11 episode of Arrow — “Three Ghosts” — have surfaced, and fans of Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Roy should take note — it looks like your boys are in mortal danger.
‘Three Ghosts’: Roy And Oliver In Mortal Danger As ‘Someone Is Killed’
You can’t do this to us right before the holidays, CW! The network just released the official synopsis for the conclusion of Arrow‘s dynamic two-part midseason finale (read our recap of part one, “The Scientist,” here), and pretty much the only good news is that Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) is back:
After a fight with Cyrus Gold AKA the Acolyte (guest star Graham Shiels), Oliver is drugged and left for dead. Determined to cure him, Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) makes a risky decision. The cure causes Oliver to hallucinate, and what he sees forces him to confront his past. Meanwhile, Barry continues to help Felicity, and their connection grows stronger. The Arrow asks Lance (Paul Blackthorne) to look into Gold, but when the stakeout on Gold goes bad, someone is killed. Roy is captured and tortured by Brother Blood (guest star Kevin Alejandro).
They’ve also released 13 dynamic photos which show Oliver looking better than he did last week, and Roy looking much, much worse — he’s being tortured by Brother Blood! Being that we know that someone will die, I can’t help but worry about Roy since the show so brutally took out Tommy (Colin Donnell) during last year’s season finale — though the synopsis makes it seem as though Papa Lance will be closest to the death when it actually occurs.
I literally cannot decide which would be worse.
Are ‘Ollicity’ Done For Good?
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and the shot of Oliver looking severely disappointed in Felicity has me reeling. Is he upset that she took a chance and trusted Barry? Mad that he’s no longer the object of her affection? I’m not sure, but one thing has been made abundantly clear — Dec. 11 could not be further away.
What do you think, Starling City HollywoodLifers? Who will die on Arrow? Should Felicity go for Barry, or keep on crushin’ on Oliver? Let us know in the comments!
