Oliver is going to have his hands full as a new villain is heading to Starling City as Matt Ward will be playing the character of Simon Lacroix, known as Komodo. Komodo is a deadly mercenary, who wreaks havoc in Starling City with his introduction on the show makes a move to connect the villains-of-the-week more closely to the overarching story.
“Yes, he’s the villain-of-the-week for the second week of the show, but you’ll see that Team Arrow’s pursuit of him is part and parcel of a season-long storyline,” executive producer Marc Guggenheim says. “You’re going to know what happens to Komodo at the end of the episode, but it will be a little bit tied in better with the season-long mythology than villain-of-the-week episodes have done in the past.”
