Arrow 3×09 spoilers: Ra’s al Ghul unleashes terror on Starling…will Sara’s killer be revealed?

The Huntress Returns


It was highly unlikely that Arrow would leave our screens for 2014 without some sort of further action on the Ra’s al Ghul front. Now it has been confirmed that this season’s big bad will feature heavily in the winter finale.

Of course, Oliver discovered that it wasn’t Malcolm Merlyn who murdered Sara Lance, but the League of Assassins still want his head on a stick for violating their code of conduct. With the added complication of Thea, Oliver said he would protect Malcolm which will no doubt bring him just a few complications along the way.

Now, a full synopsis has been released ahead of the December 10th installment of the series….

Stephen Amell posted up the above picture a while ago now on his Facebook page. With a sword fight being teased for episode 9, Ra’s al Ghul was immediately someone we thought of. Now we know just how the baddie will feature in ‘The Climb’.

This will of course be the first episode after The Flash crossover, Nyssa will return to Starling City to tell Oliver that her father has given him 48 hours to find who really murdered Sara – or the League start killing the residents of Starling themselves. Not a big ask at all….


It seems that Oliver will try and smooth things over with Ra’s though, as he arranges a meeting with the League’s leader. Could this be where the sword fight takes place?

Meanwhile, Laurel will have her own problems going on when her mother Dinah returns to town and Ray will reportedly try to make amends with Felicity.

In the meantime, there’s no Arrow episode next week but the first part of The Flash crossover will air with part two the week after.
