It's Oliver's first Christmas since returning to civilization, and to make up for lost time he has decided to throw a party for his family to show how much he really cares for them, however Diggle will inform Oliver that someone is murdering the people on the list similar to Oliver's style. This is the mid-season finale of Arrow, and it's sure to pack a punch. Who is this mysterious dark archer? Could it be Merlyn, or someone else? Sound off with your thoughts below.

Head over to GreenArrowTV for the full gallery.



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)

If that ain't Merlyn, then that is one angry ninja.

Green Arrow you just got your ass kicked.

It's Justin Hartley taking his name back.

MERLYN! I've been dying to see them develop a villainous arc for Oliver's supposed "best friend" Tommy Merlyn... and while I was thinking they'd play it out over the long run (kinda like they did with Lex Luthor-- WAY too slowly-- in "Smallville"), I'd be just as happy to see Merlyn as a mysterious arch-rival for Arrow.

Maybe he even knows who Arrow really is-- after all, he seemed to have seen SOMETHING in the pilot episode, and I don't think he'd be stupid enough to write it off as a coincidence. So Merlyn knows Arrow's identity, but Oliver doesn't realize who this new archer is-- until much later, anyway.

I WANT THIS TO HAPPEN!

DCjohnny - 11/27/2012, 12:33 AM
obviously its gonna be tommy merlyn....

At least this guy covers himself up a lot better than what Oliver does.
mgeoff88 - 11/27/2012, 2:15 AM
I don't think it's Tommy. It's way too soon for him to become Merlyn.

Unless, this has something to do with him trying to spend more time with Laurel by killing criminals to help out her Dad... In the most horrible way possible.

@dcjohnny Maybe, but when did Tommy take up archery? I still think it's too soon for him and Oliver to become adversaries.

Is everybody blind? It's obviously freakin Katniss from Hunger games.
DaenerysTargaryen - 11/27/2012, 4:17 AM
No you're all wrong! Its that girl from Brave!
MJPETTY7 - 11/27/2012, 5:00 AM
Yeah, it's way to early to be Tommy. We haven't had enough character development with him yet for him to become Merlyn. My only other guess is Yao Fei, but I have a feeling he doesn't survive making it off the island... Also, it's possible that it's Thea, but doubtful. I'm undecided and anxious...
Daniellantern - 11/27/2012, 5:22 AM
It's Merlyn! Bring it on!
Jollem - 11/27/2012, 5:37 AM
it's kevin smith!

Arrow is a good show. Keep bringing on the characters from the comics! Amell looks like he may end up with the goatee like Ollie in the comics.
Wingding - 11/27/2012, 7:06 AM
Ha, in the description it says that diggle warns Oliver that someone is MURDERING people with arrows on his fathers list. Isn't that what Oliver does anyway? Lol. Maybe he changes a good bit before then.
sameoldthing - 11/27/2012, 7:22 AM
Its "The BLACK SHAFT!"..oh wait,that sounds disturbing.
JorEllinator - 11/27/2012, 12:19 PM
