Arrow Episode 9 “Year’s End” Images: Is This The Dark Archer?

Craig Byrne November 26, 2012 9

The CW has released a handful of images from the December 12 episode of Arrow. It’s called “Year’s End,” and it appears there’s another archer on the scene… could this be the Dark Archer, maybe even more specifically Merlyn the Dark Archer… they wouldn’t play that card so soon, would they?

It also looks like Colin Salmon is back as Walter in this episode.

Who else can we find in the new pics? I spot Stephen Amell, Susanna Thompson, Colin Donnell, Katie Cassidy, and Willa Holland, to name a few…

Enjoy the pics!

    My opinion, it’s Thea… But I doubt it. It’s probably Tommy or someone like him…

    I think it may turn out to be Shado from ‘The Longbow Hunters’

    John Barrowman is the Merlyn of the comics! The Dark Archer has been revealed!

    Seems obvious to me the villainous Merlyn is not Merlyn junior but senior.

    I call dibs on Tommy’s father, the ‘well-dressed man’. They showed him doing some fencing when they were having a father-son talk in ‘Muse of Fire’.

    It’s most likley tommy, because it looks like Oliver is getting back with lorel and tommy is poor now, so if you lose your Girlfriend and your money, he might “Steal from the rich”

    I think it’s probably the dude with Thea in the trailer. After all, Lois was dating a mystery man in Smallville who turned out to be an archer..
