As announced yesterday at the TCA, Matt Ryan will reprise his role as John Constantine on Arrow Season 4. He will appear in the fifth episode, named Haunted.
As Marc Guggenheim confessed, all the crew is "super-crazy excited about this." He talked about how his character will fit into the show:
"Each year on the show, we have added and expanded the mythology with different elements. In Season 2 we introduced the idea of superpowers, last year brought in the League of Assassins, and for Season 4, we always had a plan to introduce magic and mysticism. We were already swimming in those waters and that's why Constantine is this great organic little development."
While he will appear in only one episode for now, Constantine will help resolve a major Legends of Tomorrow plot on Arrow...
The Resurrection of Sara Lance
Rejoice all Caity Lotz fans! While, Sara's return is not big of a surprise, you now know when she will be brought back to life.
It has been established that the Lazarus Pit has the power to heal all sort of injuries and even resurrect people from the dead. However, when this person has been dead for more than year, things can get complicated...
"Unlike Thea, who wasn't fully dead, the consequences of using the pit on someone as dead as Sara was creates some unforeseen difficulties...and John Constantine is uniquely suited to help our team deal with those."
The why of her return is still a mystery but I'm sure Mr.Merlyn Aka Ra's-Al-Ghul will have a say in the matter.
My only worry about her return, and I've said it before, is that I don't want her resurrection to feel forced. Viewers could have the impression that Sara has been brought to life just for the purpose of Legends.
But I'm confident the writers will find the perfect way to get her back!
We now have to wait October 7th to have all the answers we are waiting for!
