[SPOILERS for those not caught up with Arrow are ahead. You’ve been warned]
Fans of NBC’s version of the hellblazer John Constantine were upset once told that the show wouldn’t be getting renewed for a second season, but they got a small consolation when it was announced that Matt Ryan’s Constantine would be making an appearance in The CW’s Arrow to aid the team with something that only a true master of the occult could do. In the images you see Constantine interacting with Oliver (Stephen Amell), Detective Lance (Paul Blackthrone), Laurel (Katie Cassidy), and leading what looks like a ritual to help Sara (Caity Lotz) get back to normal, after the waters of the lazarus pit have changed her in a way no one expected. With the photos, the CW has release the description for 04×05- “haunted”:
“When things take a turn for the worse with Sara (guest star Caity Lotz), Oliver (Stephen Amell) calls in a favor from an old friend who deals in the mystical, John Constantine (guest star Matt Ryan). John Badham directed the episode written by Brian Ford Sullivan & Oscar Valderrama.”
You can see pictures from the episode below:
Even though this doesn’t completely make up for a whole show being canceled, seeing Constantine don the trademark trench coat one last time is as good as it’s going to get. Hopefully Matt Ryan makes his last performance as the character a memorable one.
Arrow airs on The CW every Wednesday at 7pm CST
