Arrow Season 3 Scoop: A New Villain in Starling City

at . Comments

Do you want to know who Team Arrow will be doing battle on Arrow Season 3 Episode 2?

No problem!

EW learned that Matt Ward will be coming to town as Simon Lacroix, aka Komodo. In the New 52 comics, he's an archer and nemesis of Green Arrow. Here, he'll be on board as a mercenary causing problems in Starling City. Can we assume he'll do it with a bow?

Apparently Komodo will be a one-and-done villain-of-the-week, but executive producer Mark Guggenheim promises that the pursuit of the Komodo (and other weekly villains) will fit into the overall season arc in a better way than they have in the past. 

That's welcome news. Instead of a sideline to show off the skills of Team Arrow, adding little in the long term, weekly villains will play a part in the continuing mythology. 

Are you excited to see how Komodo comes in and is taken out? What other villains are you hoping to see? See how they were incorporated in previous seasons when you watch Arrow online via TV Fanatic.

Arrow Quotes

Laurel: Helena, you don't have to do this.
Helena: Yes, I do. Because once you let the darkness inside, it never comes out.

Sara: That's not true. I wanted to kill Roy because that's what I do. That's who I am. I spent six years in the darkness and I looked into the eyes of the devil and I gave him my soul.
Oliver: I can help you get it back.
Sara: No. You deserve someone better. You can harness that light that's still inside of you, but I'm not that person and I never will be.
