Warning: The following post contains major spoilers regarding the Monitor in Stephen Amell’s Arrow!
The most recent episode of Stephen Amell’s Arrow revealed Lyla Michaels, a.k.a. Harbinger, has been working with the Monitor for a long time.
Towards the end of Tuesday nights episode of Arrow, Lyla secretly met with the Monitor and the Stephen Amell series indicated that she has known the character for a while. During their conversation, Lyla chastises to Monitor for failing to inform her of Earth-2’s destruction and noted that John Diggle could have been killed. The fact that Lyla did not need to clarify that John Diggle is husband suggests the Monitor is familiar with her family life.
After noting that the destruction of Earth-2 was a necessary sacrifice, the Monitor asks Lyla if she was successful in her mission, to which she replies, “Yes. I have Dr. Wong.” Just before the episode of Stephen Amell’s Arrow ends, the Monitor indicated that he has been formulating a plan with Lyla for some time now by saying, “then let us proceed.”
Lyla was introduced in the first season of Stephen Amell’s Arrow and has been a recurring character ever since. While it remains unclear how long Lyla and the Monitor have been aligned, their partnership is not all that surprising considering both characters have a history in the comics.
Lyla and the Monitor are set to appear in the upcoming Arrowverse crossover. Crisis On Infinite Earths will span two quarters and consist of Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, and Batwoman. The Arrowverse crossover will launch with three episodes in December before concluding with two additional episodes in January.
Stephen Amell’s Arrow continues next week with the episode titled “Leap of Faith” and you can read The CW’s official synopsis below:
