TVLine Items: Arrow Mom Returns, Nashville's Rayna Superfan and More

Arrow is plotting a mother of a reunion for its 100th episode.

The milestone hour will welcome back Susanna Thompson, who played Moira Queen in the first two seasons of the CW series, Entertainment Weekly reports.

It’s anyone’s guess how Moira will reappear — when last we saw her, she was being killed by Deathstroke — but given Arrow‘s affinity for flashbacks, it’s probably safe to assume we’ll be seeing a past version of Oliver and Thea’s mother. Or given that the episode falls during the middle part of a crossover with Supergirl, The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow, Moira’s appearance could happen via time travel or another Earth.

Thompson will next be seen recurring on NBC’s Timeless, premiering Monday at 10/9c.

Arrow Season 5 premieres next Wednesday, Oct. 5 at 8/7c on The CW.

    Billionaire and obsessive superfan? So it sounds like that stalker theory for Connie’s exit will be true…

  2. Joey Padron says:

    Good news Suanna is coming back to Arrow for 100th episode!

  3. Aaron says:

    Is anyone else still on pins and needles to find out how Flashpoint will effect Arrow? I thought it might be Moira still being alive. Guess not.

      i think barry still goes to starling city like he did in S2 of arrow but i think that instead of starlabs being in central city starlabs main operation is in starling so maybe harrison wells help create the miracuru cure and barry helps them out like normal in S3 when team arrow get captured by ra al ghul and it only little things that change

    Moira’s death was one of the saddest death in recent years. Those scenes were amazing.

  5. bluji says:

    Love to hear Thompson is returning to Arrow!

  6. Pia says:

    LOL no one in Silicon Valley cares about country. This might be the least realistic plot on the show yet.

    Since Jamie Sheridan will also be in Arrow Ep 100, it looks like Oliver’s (dead) parents will be reunited.
