‘Arrow’: The Return of Tommy Merlyn??

Since The Flash Season 2 finale, fans have been wondering if Barry traveling back in time to save his mother will also affect the series Arrow. Rumors have been floating around that one friend may be possibly returning.

Due to Barry’s time traveling actions, the “Flashpoint” timeline that is about to be created may be one where Oliver Queen’s best friend, Tommy Merlyn, may have survived The Glades Earthquake at the end of Season One.

Colin Donnell, the actor who plays Tommy on the show, recently interviewed with TV Line about the possible return of his character:

 “I can’t tell you how many people I’ve talked to about the possibility and how it could possibly happen. It’s not out of the realm of possibility.”

Flashpoint is certainly the most anticipated episode of The Flash yet! While the ‘return’ of some old friends may be a fantastic thing, we should also brace ourselves for the possibility of some serious repercussions. Not the good kind, either.

Check out the synopsis for Season 5 below:

Newly appointed Mayor Oliver Queen finds himself challenged as he fights on two fronts for the future of Star City. With Diggle back in the military and Thea adamant about hanging up her hood as Speedy, Team Green Arrow is down to just Oliver and Felicity – but they’re no longer the only vigilantes in town. Green Arrow’s public defeat of Damien Darhk at the end of Season Four has inspired a new crop of masked heroes to step up and defend the city, though their painful inexperience makes them obstacles, rather than allies, in the field. The arrival of a deadly new adversary will force Oliver to confront questions about his own legacy, both as mayor and as the Green Arrow.

Arrow returns to the CW on Wednesday, Oct. 5 at 8PM/EST
