For those who haven`t seen the latest episode, I am sorry, but for those who did, I just wanted to talk about season 3.
As most of the readers already know this, Arrow, the Starling cities vigilante had fallen from the hands of Ra al Ghul!
As I am not a particular fan of the tweets and spoilers from the stars or writers I have got a theory for the 3rd season. There are many different paths that may arise:
They both have a long history that won`t be reveled till the end of the 3rd season. He has joined The League of Assassins due to an event that happened in the past (no spoilers for you here). So he can be one of those who can help Oliver to become whole again (why do I want to spoil everything before even revealing what may happen, sorry! :) )
Nyssa al Ghul
Truth to be told, the opinions about the child of the Demon differ, but one thing that she and the Arrow had in common was Sarah Lance. We all know that Nyssa and Ra don`t believe that Oliver killed The Canary. So she can be one of those who can help Mr. Queen.
And last, but not least - Ra al Ghul (The Demon)
Most of you will say this is absurd, but do you remember the words that Ra al Ghul said in the end :
I was 11 years old when I killed my first man. I remember the look on his face, when the light went out behind his eyes. Such a sudden change, almost imperceptive between life and death and I felt ashamed. I have stolen from that man the most precious gift of all - life, but I also felt something else - pride, because I have taken up arms against someone who sort to do ill against my family. and I realised, what I have done was necessary. You see I had replaced evil with death.
And from the previous encounter in Starling city where Oliver implied for the "Trial by Combat", Ra answered:
It`s been 67 years since a man challenged me
To be fair I think Ra would understand why Oliver took the blame and asked for the Combat.
The thing that you were waiting for - THE ANSWER
Please take into consideration that this is only based on facts that I saw and this theory is not related to any of the rumors that you may have heard.
If we look into the facts (using math) that Ra al Ghul had his last challenge 67 years ago and we know that he killed a man when he was 11 years old, and of course we may assume that he never, ever killed someone else in a Trial Combat after, he would be at least 78 years old, which he is not. That means that the theory about (SPOILER) the Fountain of Youth in the Valley of Nanda Parbat could be possible and may save the Arrow.
In the "Batman: The Resurrection of Ra's al Ghul" storyline:
When Ra's and Batman seek the Fountain of Youth in the Valley of Nanda Parbat, Sensei confronts them both, stabbing Ra's' decaying body and then attacking Batman, arrogantly informing the Dark Knight that, while he can only maintain the necessary physical strength to vanquish Batman for two minutes at his age, he only needs one minute to break him. However, Batman is able to take him by surprise, hurling both of them into the Fountain. It destroys Sensei due to his impure spirit, but Batman is not only healed, but apparently slightly rejuvenated by his dip in the waters.
I still believe that we can wait for something awesome to happen and it will be tremendous for all. Oliver Queen and the Arrow cannot be killed so easily.
