Damien Darhk will “come out swinging” in the wake of murdering Laurel Lance and dealing Team Arrow that
morale-crushing blow, says Producer, Wendy Mericle. Following the heart-breaking death of Laurel in the Arrow
Season 4 episode ‘Eleven-Fifty-Nine‘, it can be said that without a doubt; Team Arrow will set their sights on ending Damien Darhk. After this absolutely, heart- wrenching moment, it is time for Darhk’s reign of terror to end. According to a report from TVLine, however, that end will not come without multiple casualties happening first.
Wendy Mericle also revealed that the finale will finally showcase how Oliver and his team will be able to defeat Darhk’s magic but this doesn’t necessarily mean they will be able to stop Darhk from executing his destructive plans.
Mericle teased that the Biblical Book of Genesis would be a good clue as to what kind of damage Darhk intents to inflict on the city and its residents, indicating that the finale episode could contain some major casualties. According to the report, the season 4 finale is even bigger in scale than the season 2 finale, which saw Slade Wilson’s mirakuru army invade Starling City from all angles.
“It’s a pretty grim one, I’m sad to say. We have a huge number of potential fatalities,” Mericle explained. “And you’ll definitely get a hint about where the team is headed for Season 5.”
Could this mean a potential cliffhanger for Season 4?
Arrow will return with it’s 19th episode ‘Canary Cry’ on Wednesday, April 27th at 8PM/EST on The CW.
