Oliver Queen has courted war with the League of Assassins, and in Arrow‘s mid season finale titled, “The Climb,” the Arrow faces off against the Demon Head, Ra’s al Ghul.
The hunt for Sara’s killer may come to an end, as Nyssa gives Oliver an ultimatum. With the threat of the Demon Head looming over his head, Oliver decides it’s time to meet Ra’s al Ghul face-to-face in what promises to be an epic showdown.
Actor Stephen Amell teased fans when he posted a photo on his Facebook page (photo on the left), late October, of himself in character with his back facing the camera while holding a sword in each hand. During New York Comic Con 2014, Amell stated that the mid season finale would feature a fight between Oliver and the season’s big bad and that Oliver’s weapon of choice would not be a bow and arrow.
