Since the season premiere, Arrow has been teasing a major character death this season. And from set photos that indicate a funeral to be in episode 4×19, this indicates that the death is happening in episode 18.
The CW has released an official synopsis for episode 4×18 of Arrow titled “Eleven-Fifty-Nine,” which features Malcolm Merlyn making his move, which we’re assuming results in said death on top of breaking Damien Darhk out of prison.
This is it, folks. This is the game-changing episode that will rock the show.
