We’re down to the wire now with Arrow’s second season. Slade Wilson’s plans are in full effect. The city is burning. Our heroes’ backs are against the wall. What Ollie needs now is an ace up his sleeve. And what better time than now for Malcolm Merlyn to swoop in and save the day?

I was happy to see my earlier predictions validated when I guessed that Malcolm would resurface in the wake of Moira’s deat hand with Thea’s life in imminent danger. I was less than happy to see that twist spoiled by the CW ahead of time. If you somehow managed to avoid the preview images and spoilery DVR description and were genuinely surprised by Malcolm’s appearance, congratulations.
