WARNING: ARROW SPOILERS AHEAD!
John Barrowman’s character Malcolm Merlyn appeared to die on the season five finale of Arrow, but did he really? Recently, Barrowman discussed what happened and his future on the CW TV show, CinemaBlend reports.
A DC Comics series, Arrow follows Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell), a billionaire playboy who begins fighting wrongdoers after being presumed dead for years. The cast also includes Katie Cassidy, Willa Holland, David Ramsey, Paul Blackthorne, Emily Bett Rickards, Echo Kellum, Josh Segarra, and Colton Haynes.
On Facebook, Barrowman revealed that Malcolm did indeed die in the season five finale of Arrow and he won’t return for season six. Watch the full video below:
What do you think? Do you watch Arrow? Are you sad Barrowman won’t be returning?
while Barrowman is a very good actor and brought plenty of drama to the Arrow I believe his character has outlived its role. I think the writers did a spectacular job at eliminating his character for the drama needed on the show.
would not want to see his character brought back from the dead.. since his son “Tommy” has been removed from the episode I believe Barrowman’s character should remain dead also.
the Magician never dies…nor would spoilers be given so early after the finale
John Barrowman is such an amazing force and he has such incredible talent. Also, he clearly works so well and gets along so well with the rest of the cast, especially on Arrow. I cannot imagine the Arrowverse without him in some way. Although the Malcolm Merlyn storyline really does seem to be over, I just cannot believe that “The Magician” did not figure out a way to magically save himself like he did in season 1.
