After months of wondering why they don’t just kill Malcolm Merlyn, it looks like Arrow is going to try and kill off Malcolm Merlyn. You know, because his being the head of a terror organization who killed thousands before taking over another terror organization that killed thousands wasn’t reason enough for Ollie. Although, considering that it’s Nyssa, daughter of the former Ra’s Al Ghul, who wants this to happen, you might ask why she doesn’t just pick up a sword and take care of business.
Anyway, it appears that one of Malcolm’s many jerk moves, namely bringing his daughter back from death with an incurable bloodlust that’s currently leaving her incapacitated. The only way to end the curse is, conveniently, to bump off somebody Ollie really can’t stand, so it’s time for another rooftop fight. That said, Ollie is being a bit blasé about the whole thing, showing up in a button-down and khakis. It’s only your sister’s life, dude, maybe put on some body armor.
Meanwhile, Felicity has discovered her father wants back into her life, which would be great except he’s a terrorist too. She probably won’t take it well when she finds out, but then, we’re pretty sure she can also take him in a fight, so Felicity shouldn’t have any problem venting her aggression. We’ll find out tonight at 8 p.m. EST on the CW. Join us, won’t you?
