This week on Arrow, Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman) returned to Star City after Prometheus (Josh Segarra) took his daughter Thea (Willa Holland) hostage in his crusade against Oliver (Stephen Amell).
Now that Thea is in danger, Malcolm not only has to work with Oliver to save her, but he also has to team up with Nyssa Al Ghul (Katrina Law) as Prometheus is in cahoots with her sister, Talia (Lexa Doig).
With the season coming to a head on Lian Yu, Entertainment Weekly has revealed that Malcolm will make a fatherly decision in an attempt to reconcile his relationship with Thea following his exploits with the Legion of Doom on this season of Legends of Tomorrow.
