According to THR, she will in fact be a series regular once again – as Laurel’s evil Earth-2 doppelgänger Black Siren.
“One of the things that most excites us about Arrow is that we go where the story takes us,” executive producer Marc Guggenheim said. “Last year, the story took us to the tragic death of Laurel Lance. This year, our midseason finale reintroduced us to Laurel’s doppelgänger, Black Siren. We were so taken by Katie‘s fearless interpretation of this character that we knew her story was not yet finished. We couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome Katie back to Arrow as Black Siren, though as her appearances on Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow this season show, she never really left the family.”
Laurel Lance did indeed return to Star City on Arrow last night…it just wasn’t the Laurel that we all knew.
Instead of being the same Laurel (played by Katie Cassidy) we saw die at the end of season four (who we all hoped it actually was), this Laurel was actually Earth-2’s Black Siren!
During the episode, (and after Felicity caught the deception) Black Siren explained that she had come after Team Arrow because of big bad Prometheus as he was threatening her life.
So, after trying to kill Felicity (don’t you dare!), she’s locked up at a secure A.R.G.U.S. facility.
“The episode ends with laying a very specific seed with a very specific game plan on our part that we hope to see come to fruition,” EP Marc Guggenheim shared with EW after the episode aired. What does that even mean?!
Tune in next week for an all new ep of Arrow on The CW.
Arthur Darvill will make his return later this month on the show as the captain, returning from filming another show in the UK.
“They were very kind on Legends - Broadchurch is something that’s been going on for a while, so they had to work around that,” Arthur revealed in a recent interview of his absence from the CW show. “I was so pleased to finish off that journey on Broadchurch.”
But what about his return as Rip? “Yeah, I do come back, in some way, to Legends of Tomorrow… but I can’t talk about that! I always work on shows that you’re not allowed to bloody talk about…”
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will make it’s winter premiere on January 24th @ 9PM ET/PT on the CW.
