One of the things that fans are talking about for the upcoming season six of Arrow, besides the whole island blowing up, is the return of Katie Cassidy as Black Siren. The big questions, assuming she gets off of Lian Yu, is whether she will stay a bad guy or get redeemed. They already have another Black Canary in the wing… get it, wing? Dinah Drake (Juliana Harkvay) has taken on that mantle, but that doesn’t mean that folk s like Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne) and Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) wouldn’t be looking for signs of the Earth-1 Laurel they knew.
Executive producer Wendy Mericle told TVLine:
I don’t know if there’s any question about whether or not the [idea] of redemption will come up; it has to. Her father is there. Oliver is there. Everyone is going to be asking whether or not it’s possible to find a little piece of Laurel, the Laurel Lance they knew and loved, in there somewhere.” That said, “I think she’s interesting as a [villain]. Black Siren is a badass.
Also in the report was a hint about an upcoming part of the new season. How an FBI reporter may think they know the connection between Mayor Oliver Queen and Star City’s vigilante the Green Arrow and they’re going to keep dogging Oliver for proof.
Arrow returns on it’s new night and time at 9 PM on Thursday, October 12th.
