Arrow, This is Your Sword

The CW

Here comes the bride, all dressed in...her League of Assassins costume?!

Wedding bells are ringing on Arrow, and while our jaws are still on the floor after last week's revelation that Ra's al Ghul (Matt Nable) wants Oliver/Al Sah-Him (Stephen Amell) to marry his daughter Nyssa (Katrina Law) instead of killing her before he can take his place as the next Ra's, it's time to face the music, because the bizarre nuptials are tonight!

"This Is Your Sword" will find Nyssa walking the down aisle, with Al Sah-Him reluctantly waiting for her at the end of it. E! News got to screen the episode early (try to contain your jealousy, we'll wait...), so we took to Twitter to ask for your fan questions about the dark and epic episode.

Check out all the scoop we're dishing below!

@filmsy101: how big will argus' role be? I have trouble believing Maseo would just hand the virus over to Ra's. #doubleagent
A.R.G.U.S. doesn't have a big role to play in the episode, but Maseo (Karl Yune), on the other hand, most certainly does. The battle for his soul between Ra's and Tatsu (Rila Fukushima) will come to head, and Maseo and Tatsu's storylinesboth in the past and presentwill come to a conclusion. Spoiler alert: tears will be shed for both storylines. You've been warned!

‏@9t9: Any info about this big surprise ending that has been teased?
The alpha and omega virus that Ra's wants Al Sah-Him to unleash on Starling City will be used...but the actual location and its victims will surprise you. And totally gut you. Arrow is not pulling any punches this season! We love it...and we hate it (but only for our own mental well-being purposes).

@bethlogan55: Does the wedding actually get completed?
Oh yes, yes it does. Although points go to Nyssa for trying her hardest to call it off.

Bonus scoop: Roy (Colton Haynes) makes his final appearance in tonight's episode. And he's sporting some serious scruff (we're talking facial and body) while in hiding/on the run. It's totally working for him! And yes, that means you're going to be getting a lot of shirtless Roy. You're welcome.

@thesmoakedqueen: will oliver be redeemed?
There are definitely moments during the episode that will have you question whether or not Al Sah-Him is here to stay and Oliver Queen is dead. But after everything he's done so far to his friends as Al Sah-Him, and everything he will do in tonight's episode, redemption might be too much to hope for.

@honeybfly1929: Will Felicity finally get through to Oliver and bring him back to his true self. #arrow
If anyone can, it's most certainly Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards), and even Diggle (David Ramsey), who is dealing with some anger issues of his own during the episode. But will they be able to? That's a question that won't be fully answered by the end of the episode.

@silviacs26: Something about Olicity please ?
As much as the last trip to Nanda Parbat resulted in the Olicity .GIF that will never and should never die, this is not the episode for Olicity shippers. It's going to be a very tough one for you. Sorry! Take a look at this to cheer you up:

Bonus scoop: Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman) lives up to his reputation as being the worst person on the face of the planet. Surprise, surprise, right?!

@gigigirl31: Will Nyssa's archiac father really make her marry a man?
Yup. And you haven't even seen the worst of Ra's yet. He is not in the running for father of the year, let's just put it that way.

@MlleAmell71: Hhmm ..... How Felicity reacts when it is for the wedding of Oliver and Nyssa?
Not well! As you can imagine. All the props to Emily Bett Rickards for her work in this episode, but can we please get back to the days of early season one when Felicity was full of happiness and joy and smiles? We miss that Felicity. A lot.

@Lostritaurie: Is Felicity Smoak the new CEO of Queen Consolidated?
Well, since Queen Consolidated is no more, that's a most definite no. But when it comes to Palmer Technologies, Ray (Brandon Routh) is going to make a huge business decision that will shake up the status quo going forward. Also: Ray has picked the worst time to help out Team Arrow.

Bonus scoop: the birth of a major DC superhero begins in tonight's episode. We could not be more pumped to watch how this one plays out.

@ManILoveOhio: when will we see the arrow on the flash again #Arrow
Next week! We'll see Oliver, still in his Al Sah-Him costume, visit Central City on The Flash. We don't know about you, but we're very much looking forward to Barry's (Grant Gustin) and Cisco's (Carlos Valdes) reaction to seeing Oliver as the Dark Archer.

@Sandwood: Will Quentin Lance be in this episode? Will he reconciliate with Laurel before the final episode?
Unfortunately, there's no Quentin (Paul Blackthorne) in tonight's episode. And we hear his trust issues with Laurel are going to continue past this season's finale.

@MeeRa0894: are we gonna see oliver shirtless? Ive had a terrible day and that would definitely make it better
We hate to crush your dreams and make your day even worse but...sorry, no shirtless Oliver. We know, mistakes are being made!
