Warning: there are major spoilers below for the latest episode of Arrow! Before reading the post, make sure you’ve seen the latest episode or read our recap to find out what you missed. You’ve been warned!
Within the world of Arrow, there’s no love lost between John Barrowman’s Malcolm Merlyn and Katrina Law’s Nyssa al Ghul. In fact, hate may actually undersell the animosity between them, especially since Merlyn stole Nyssa’s birthright and became the new Ra’s al Ghul.
Their conflict came to a head in this week’s episode of Arrow, as Nyssa attempted to blackmail Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) into killing Merlyn for her. Oliver had his own solution, which involved taking on Malcolm and chopping off his hand to save the lives of Nyssa and his sister, Thea (Willa Holland). Naturally, Merlyn was less than pleased by that turn of events and he vowed vengeance upon Oliver.
While there’s a lot of onscreen tension between Barrowman and Law’s characters, that doesn’t translate into problems between the two performers. In a very silly video posted to Barrowman’s Facebook page, Law and Barrowman danced to the music of Paula Abdul’s ‘90s classic, “Opposites Attract.”
We’d be remiss as music fans if we didn’t also post Abdul’s original version of the video, in which she co-starred with the animated MC Skat Kat.
