I’m still a tad surprised the first trailer for tonight’s Arrow spoiled the fact it’s an “alt-Laurel” that resurfaced in the midseason finale.
Still, not only is it exciting to have Katie Cassidy return to the show, but it seems the creative team have some tricks up their sleeve. Why else would they allow this twist to be revealed in a trailer? While executive producer Marc Guggenheim declined to comment on the spoiler, he told EW “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.” Fingers crossed it has zero to do with a Felicity Canary. The series has been renewed for Season 6, so could Cassidy return full time?
Does the big mystery have something to do with time travel as Ollie mentions in the trailer below? How did Black Siren get to Earth 1? Aside from Laurel, the other thing fans are dying to learn is the identity of Prometheus. Do you have any theories as to who the villain might be? Share them in the comments section.
Here are a few images from “Who Are You?” (click image to advance) and check out The CW’s official description below…
OLIVER WANTS JUSTICE; FELICITY WANTS REVENGE — Worried that Prometheus is right and he is truly a killer at heart, Oliver looks for any ray of hope and finds it in what seems to be the miraculous return of Laurel Lance (guest star Katie Cassidy). However, Felicity, still reeling from Detective Malone’s murder, is bent on revenge – she wants to stop Prometheus at any cost. While in prison, Diggle fights for his life. Gregory Smith directed the episode written by Ben Sokolowski & Brian Ford Sullivan.
Arrow returns tonight at 8/7c on The CW
