Arrow has essentially rendered deaths on the series meaningless as it has found countless ways to bring back characters from the grave since first introducing magic into the series and using the Lazarus pit to resurrect Sara Lance (Caity Lotz) in the third season. Since then we have seen every dead character return in some form or another with the exception whether it be a flashback, hallucination, or dream. But it seems the writers have come up with a new mysterious reason to explain the return of a former series regular.
To close out the first half of season five, Oliver returned to his lair to find Laurel Lance A.K.A. Black Canary (Katie Cassidy) eyeing up her old super suit. At least it looked like her. The new promo for the midseason premiere titled “Who Are You?” teases this Black Canary could either be Black Siren (who was last seen in The Flash’s metahuman prison underneath Star Labs) or someone else entirely.
Arrow returns January 25 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
