Lost Star Michael Emerson Joins The Cast Of Arrow Season 6


“Arrow” season 5 wrapped up in May, and most fans seem to agree that it was arguably the best season so far. Adrian Chase proved to be the perfect adversary for Oliver Queen, and he is a villain that won’t soon be forgotten, but “Arrow” fans are looking ahead to season 6 as they wonder who Team Arrow will be facing off against when the show returns in the fall.

One plot thread from season 6 that was left open was Felicity and her adventures with Helix. Felicity’s relationship with the group caused major friction in Team Arrow, especially when she helped to set Cayden James free. When asked if Helix will be returning in season 6, executive producer Wendy Mericle said, “You never know. They are still in the wind. We don’t like to leave those threads dangling.”

Even though the notorious hacker Cayden James was set free, he was never shown on camera. That’s why it’s so interesting that “Lost” and “Person Of Interest” star Michael Emerson has joined the cast in a mystery role.

EW reports that Saturday at Comic Con it was announced that Michael Emerson will be playing a mystery character in “Arrow” season 6, and it’s speculated that he will be revealed as Helix leader Cayden James.

Emerson certainly seems like he would be a perfect fit for the leader of Helix, but either way he’ll be a welcomed addition to the cast.

“Arrow” will return on Thursday, October 12.

After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the North China Sea. He returned home to Star City, bent on righting the wrongs done by his family and fighting injustice.

As the Green Arrow, he protects his city with the help of former soldier John Diggle (David Ramsey), computer-science expert Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards), his vigilante-trained sister Thea Queen (Willa Holland), Deputy Mayor Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne), brilliant inventor Curtis Holt (Echo Kellum), and his new recruits, street-savvy Rene Ramirez (Rick Gonzalez) and meta-human Dinah Drake (Juliana Harkavy).

Oliver has finally solidified and strengthened his crime-fighting team only to have it threatened when unexpected enemies from his past return to Star City, forcing Oliver to rethink his relationship with each member of his “family”.
