Arrow season 2 finale-Deathsroke vs Dark Archer

There's been quite a few tidbits and minor updates for The CW's Arrow in the last couple of days. Here's a rundown of what you need to know:

Over at E! Online, executive producer Marc Guggenheim teased this for the finale.  Read his statement carefully.  "If everything goes according to plan, that's a caveat, you'll see some familiar faces in the finale. Maybe ones that you're not expecting."  Hmm, not a familiar face but familiar faces.  It's long been revealed that Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman) is still alive and that he factors into the show's season finale plans in some capacity.  But here, Guggenheim implies there's more than one familiar face returning for the finale.  Given the shows prediliction for ressuretion, might another Merlyn also be returning?

Over at TV Fanatic we have some minor updates on The Flash cameos from the last ep, Killer Frost (Danielle Panabaker) and Vibe (Carlos Valdes). It seems that despite their improtant role in developing a cure for the Mirakuru, they wont be showing up again this season.  

In an interesting bit of trivia, executive producer Andrew Kresiberg revealed that in a very early draft of season 2, Sara Lance (Caity Lotz) was originally going to suit up as Ravager, not Black Canary.  Given the final moment of the last episode we now know where the concept of Ravager is headed and it's certainly not in that direction.  It seems this change in philosophy came during mid-shooting and was the reason why Isable Rochev (Summer Glau) was absent for a bulk of episodes as producers and writers tried to figure out a direction for Glau's character.  "Part of the reason Isabel disappeared for awhile was we still weren’t sure which way to go whether she should be an ally or a villain and we’d kind of written it where it could turn out either way." 

Also, Kreisberg states that if you rewatch last Wednesday's episode and pause the scene where Deathstroke (Manu Bennett) is in the S.T.A.R. Labs cage, as an easter egg, you can spot Dr. Lights gun.

"After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the Pacific. When he returns home to Starling City, his devoted mother Moira, much-beloved sister Thea, and best friend Tommy welcome him home, but they sense Oliver has been changed by his ordeal on the island. While Oliver hides the truth about the man he’s become, he desperately wants to make amends for the actions he took as the boy he was. Most particularly, he seeks reconciliation with his former girlfriend, Laurel Lance. As Oliver reconnects with those closest to him, he secretly creates the persona of Arrow – a vigilante – to right the wrongs of his family, fight the ills of society, and restore Starling City to its former glory. By day, Oliver plays the role of a wealthy, carefree and careless philanderer he used to be – flanked by his devoted chauffeur/bodyguard, John Diggle – while carefully concealing the secret identity he turns to under cover of darkness. However, Laurel’s father, Detective Quentin Lance, is determined to arrest the vigilante operating in his city. Meanwhile, Oliver’s own mother, Moira, knows much more about the deadly shipwreck than she has let on – and is more ruthless than he could ever imagine."

Dr. Light Easter Egg was really great!
Can't wait to see Glau as Ravager in action!
russburlingame - 4/19/2014, 7:28 AM
I thank you're overthinking the Tommy prediction. Familiar faces? The Suicide Squad has been teased and Kateina Law turned up at a Vancouver bar along with Michael Rowe and other cast members recently.

LOKI MIGHT HAVE A LOVE INTEREST IN THOR 3

Mehhhhhh. Still think it would be cool is Slades daughter Rose Wilson were to show up. Even so, shes not the original Ravenger so I guess it's all good. Man I love this show.
Marxman12 - 4/19/2014, 7:34 AM
I'm thinking the familiar faces are the Suicide Squad, Isabel, and possibly Malcolm Merlyn.
CoulsonLives - 4/19/2014, 7:37 AM
Wonder when the Flash Pilot will air...
GuardianAngel - 4/19/2014, 7:53 AM
I'm calling it now. Malcolm used the same thing he used to come back to revive Tommy.
AgentEX - 4/19/2014, 7:54 AM
@CoulsonLives Fall. Will premiere at SDCC first.
JasonBlue - 4/19/2014, 7:56 AM
Katrina Law (Nyssa Al Ghul) will be back in the finale... Stephen Amell posted a photo of the cast at dinner with her in the pic.
Klone - 4/19/2014, 8:11 AM
If Slade kills Blonde Can't Act he will be my bad guy of the year for the sheer fact that whatever Blondie Can't Act's real name is will be gone!

Also, the Dr. Light easter egg was pretty cool.
Klone - 4/19/2014, 8:13 AM
Christ, she really can't act. Go watch that scene from ep 15. where they all confront him at the house. Credit to Amell and Raging Red Bitch Boy, they clearly showed a lot of aggression but restraint on their faces. As in you could tell they wanted to attack him but were restraining themselves. Then you look at Blondie Can't Act's face during that scene... SHE CAN'T [frick]ING ACT!
comicle199 - 4/19/2014, 8:27 AM
I think we can bet that arrow will be breaking out the huntress know she's seen the light, and they could sure use the man power
GAThrawnIGF - 4/19/2014, 8:28 AM
Could it be possible that one of the familiar faces in the finale will be Flash? One can hope...
BigBossKaz - 4/19/2014, 8:28 AM
Nobody on this show can act. The acting is shit. Its the stories and action that makes me love it
comicle199 - 4/19/2014, 8:28 AM
Also vibe got a big shock from Dr lights gun could that give him his powers it was a sonic gun after all
BoomTubeB - 4/19/2014, 8:28 AM
Dr Light! yes ! all they need is black lighting to show up! you can see caity lotz naked as an android in "the Machine" pretty good sci fi flick!
LeroyJenkins - 4/19/2014, 8:30 AM
we heard you the 280th time about how she can't act, but hey, keep saying it maybe the producers will listen to you

Any idea when season 2 will be on Netflix? I NEED to catch up!
Tainted87 - 4/19/2014, 8:46 AM
Jesus MAK, calm your tits. She's not THAT bad.

I thought the Star Labs scene was completely unnecessary, as well as having the two scientists who we're supposed to care about. So they turn into Vibe and Killer Frost? Ok, well right now they're just two barely ascended extras who Slade should have killed.

Doctor Light's gun..... come on.

That was my problem with the episode.
blackula - 4/19/2014, 8:52 AM
I think the Miraku plays a part with the Lazarus pitts have a tie in, the Miraku probably has some of the chemical compounds of the pitts which give it that extra boost, I am not giving up hope that at some point we will see Ras Al Ghul on here.

It kills me how people bash shows such as this one nad Sheild, if your a real fan then you shouldl be grateful we are getting shows like these that are not cheesy! I can remember some failed attempts at making comic book shows that were lame! The shows just keep getting better, source materiel is a refference point does not mean they have to follow them to a T because these shows are a variation of that character and their universe , remember there are ultimates, uncanny and amazing universes in Marvel which have different spins just like there are multiple earths and universes in DC..I am a fan of both comic lines because there are heros from each comic universe that had lots of meaning to me as a kid.
maninfinesuit - 4/19/2014, 8:54 AM
@blackula Pretty sure people have been bashing SHIELD because it is cheesy.

@TheFirstAvenger97 You'll have awhile to wait if you want it on Netflix. Usually seasons get updated on Netflix a few months after they are released on DVD.
BatmanRobinNightwing - 4/19/2014, 8:56 AM
Surprise surprise MAK is bitching about the same thing for the 100th time. He obviously never gets tired of repeating himself,every Arrow article its the same sad complaints. Get Over yourself your opinion isnt going to change a gahhh damn thing so do us all a favor and STFU, unless you have something intelligent to say(which i highly highly doubt will happen).
TheGDBatman1 - 4/19/2014, 9:00 AM
@Blackula I'm glad someone on here has some taste on here finally a comment that is sane

I really hope we'll see the Suicide Squad again before the season ends.

I want them to get a spin off show.
DrunkenNukem - 4/19/2014, 9:17 AM
dafuq

Dr. Light??
ArkAngel - 4/19/2014, 9:26 AM
Don't think Tommy is coming back. Colin Donnell is currently back on Broadway so he's busy...
Klone - 4/19/2014, 9:37 AM
@Tainted

Sorry, but seeing her acting makes my headaches even more painful :P

But whilst the scene was gratuitous Flash advertisement and felt pretty artificial, I did like the Doctor Light easter egg.
Klone - 4/19/2014, 9:38 AM
@Kaz

I'd say Bennet can act and be convincing. He's the best thing about the show lol.
newmutantsRETURNS - 4/19/2014, 9:41 AM
@MAK...your act is old and tired....we all know u hate chicks...
maninfinesuit - 4/19/2014, 9:42 AM
Klone - 4/19/2014, 9:52 AM
@RETURNS

Lol, no. I hate seeing Caity Lotz "act" is all.
newmutantsRETURNS - 4/19/2014, 10:00 AM
She looks iconic in her canary suit tho......cant deny that bro...
Arrowhead77 - 4/19/2014, 10:02 AM
Just ignore MAK. Some people just like attention.
Klone - 4/19/2014, 10:06 AM
*rolls eyes*

The sorry bullshit again? Nop. I generally think her "acting" sucks. People respond to me, I respond back. Sorry to disappoint you Arrowhead, but there is no attention whore agenda here :)
Battabing - 4/19/2014, 10:21 AM
MAK, I think your whining sucks.
Take your Midol, already.

The familiar face returning to the show is Nyssa.
grifdeadpoolteabag - 4/19/2014, 10:25 AM
Remember,

MAK.

Into dudes.

Logic.
RyGoR - 4/19/2014, 10:26 AM
The best actor on this show is by far Oliver's bow an Oscar worthy performance


/sarcasm
Battabing - 4/19/2014, 10:30 AM
@grifdeadpoolteabag

But MAK complains about everything. It's got nothing to do with his sexuality.

He'd complain about water being wet.
