Over the past couple of weeks on “Arrow,” we’ve started to learn more and more about Ra’s al Ghul. One thing that we’ve known since “The Climb” is that he is several centuries old, and during “Nanda Parbat,” we saw him soaking it up in what appeared to be a Lazarus Pit.
For some reason, though, the show’s executive producers have been somewhat coy to admit that these pits actually exist in the world, which we personally assume is due to some secret plan that they have for implementing them that they do not want completely known just yet. We do understand that, if for no other reason that there are some big questions still to be answered. For example, did Tatsu manage to steal some of that magic water for Oliver’s “tea”? Is that why he recovered.
For more coyness on this subject, take a look at what executive producer Marc Guggenheim said recently on this subject to Entertainment Weekly:
“All the answers to that question have already been presented on the show … You’ve seen everything you need to see to know where we’re headed.”
While this may be true, we feel like we are going to get more answers, as well. With Ra’s telling Oliver that he wants him to become the new head of the League of Assassins, we imagine that we are going to get a chance to finally see more of what makes this world special.
