‘Arrow’ season 3 spoilers: First look at Tommy Merlyn’s return in ‘Sara’

Arrow -The October 15 episode of “Arrow” season 3 is one that arguably has us more curious than almost any other that we know about right now. For one, the title of this episode is “Sara,” though if you look at the synopsis below, it feels almost more like Sara Lance is just a supplemental character in the story.

Meanwhile, what is really the most interesting part of this is seeing the return of Colin Donnell as Tommy Merlyn, who Oliver has a run-in with during his time in Hong Kong without even knowing it. This whole thing sounds terribly coincidental, but we don’t even care given that it at least allows us to see Tommy again:

“Lance (Paul Blackthorne) calls the Arrow (Stephen Amell) when another archer appears in town and starts skewering businessmen. Diggle (David Ramsey) uses A.R.G.U.S. to find the archer’s identity; he is a man named Simon Lacroix (guest star Matt Ward), who goes by the codename Komodo. However, the team hits a rough patch with the mission and gets help from a surprising source – Laurel (Katie Cassidy). Meanwhile, Oliver begins to worry that he hasn’t heard from Thea (Willa Holland), which forces Roy (Colton Haynes) to tell him the truth about why she left town. Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh) pursues Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards). In the flashback, Maseo (guest star Karl Yune) tells Oliver that Amanda Waller has ordered his first kill. As Oliver looks down the scope of the rifle, he sees the target is his best friend, Tommy (guest star Colin Donnell). Despite her promise to her sister, Laurel debates sharing a secret about Sara (Caity Lotz) with Lance.”

There is a lot of good stuff taking place here, and it gives you a better sense of everything that is transpiring across the board, including Felicity finding herself yet another love interest. She is one or two away at this point from being “The Bachelorette,” given that she also has Barry Allen out there to go along with Oliver and Ray.
