The amount of lower-tier DC characters appearing in Arrow is probably the most exciting thing about the show. Already there is one Batman villain making an appearance and it has been announced that another will be making an appearance. Zap2It is reporting that the synopsis for the tenth episode of Arrow is as follows:
In episode 110, Oliver will meet Garfield — a firefighter who was horribly burned three years ago, and never recovered from the trauma. Since then, he’s been abandoned by his wife and kids, and he’s now described as a “bitter, vengeful shell of a man.” Meanwhile, the Starling City Fire Chief is also haunted by Garfield’s injury… since he’s the one who was forced to leave Garfield behind to burn.
Sound familiar? If you’ve done your homework, you’ll realize this is none other than Garfield Lynns aka Firefly. Originally, Firefly was a pyrotechnics expert turned arsonist who thinks he can see visions in the fires he creates.
Arrow stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen, Colin Donnell as Tommy, Willa Holland as Thea Queen, with Susanna Thompson as Moira Queen and Paul Blackthorne as Detective Quentin Lance.
From Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, Andrew Kreisberg and David Nutter, the hard-hitting action series reinvents the DC hero. After being marooned for five years on a remote island, billionaire Oliver Queen returns home with a mysterious agenda and very lethal new set of skills that he uses in a war on crime.
The show airs on Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
