Arrow‘s John Barrowman says he Was Shocked to Find Out Who is in the Grave

John Barrowman as Malcolm Merlyn on 'Arrow'

It’s the question that has haunted Arrow fans since the fourth season began. Apparently, it haunted the stars of the show up until recently as well.

John Barrowman, who portrays Malcolm Merlyn, said that he and his fellow actors just found out who is in the grave… and when they did, they were collectively astonished. He told Comic Book Movie, “I’m saying nothing. You are going to have to watch. We all didn’t know until recently. The storyline took us to a certain point and then all of a sudden, it was right in front of us on the page. We were all like, ‘Wow.'”

Anyone else getting impatient?

With a secret this big being teased for this long, I have to take the Arrow creators’ word for it: whoever ends up being in the grave, it’s going to come as a shocking and unexpected twist.

Barrowman said he (like all of us) had his own theory about who was in the grave. It involved time travel and alternate dimensions. But, he admits, ” I was completely wrong. I thought it was something to do with a shift in time.” Not so.

We’ll just have to wait until the end of this season to find out for ourselves.

Arrow airs Wednesdays at 8pm EST on The CW.
