Born On A Monday On TV By Wednesday: Solomon Grundy May Be Heading To ARROW


grundyArrow has been adding a lot of comic book characters into the mix for their second season, and now it looks like they’ll be calling upon one of the strongest baddies out there to make a trip to Starling City. Episode 9 will be the second and final episode for Grant Gustin‘s Barry Allen since he’s getting his own show, but the newly released synopsis for Three Ghosts includes another important characters.

The episode has a character named Cyrus Gold aka the Acolyte, played by Graham Shiels. Now if you know your comic books, then you’re well aware of the fact that Cyrus Gold was the real name of Solomon Grundy before that whole death and resurrection thing. While Gold will only be a henchman in the episode, it may well be the first step in introducing a supernatural and super powered villain. With Flash getting a set of powers, it seems nothing is off limits with Arrow now. What do you think about Cyrus Gold being the latest addition to season 2? Do you hope we see his more powerful, better known alter ego soon?

OLIVER IS VISITED BY GHOSTS FROM THE PAST — After a fight with Cyrus Gold AKA the Acolyte (guest star Graham Shiels), Oliver (Stephen Amell) is drugged and left for dead.  Determined to cure him, Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) makes a risky decision.  The cure causes Oliver to hallucinate, and what he sees forces him to confront his past.  Meanwhile, Barry (guest star Grant Gustin) continues to help Felicity, and their connection grows stronger.  The Arrow asks Lance (Paul Blackthorne) to look into Gold, but when the stakeout on Gold goes bad, someone is killed.  Roy (Colton Haynes) is captured and tortured by Brother Blood (guest star Kevin Alejandro).  John Behring directed the episode with story by Greg Berlanti & Andrew Kresiberg and teleplay by Geoff Johns & Ben Sokolowski (#209).
