Spoilers Abound for Season 3 of Arrow
"Arrow" has become one of television's most popular and acclaimed comic book adaptations, and fans can't wait to hear about the anticipated third season.
SPOILERS FOR SEASONS 2 AND 3 FOLLOW!
As we saw in the last episode of the second season, Sara Lance gave her sister, Laurel (Katie Cassidy), her mask so she could join Team Arrow as Black Canary, while Sara joined Ra's Al Ghul's League of Assassins. "I'm excited for her to fight, kick some ass," Cassidy stated to Classicalite. Clearly, she's ready to take over the mantle of the Bird of Prey.
This shouldn't come as too much of a surprise to fans of the comics, as the name Laurel Lance gives away that she would become Black Canary at some point (although in light of shows like "Smallville," you never know).
Cassidy also opened up about Laurel's father's potentially fatal injuries in the season finale, and the effect his death would have on Laurel: "It would be devastating, because they're very close, he's the closest thing to her. I definitely think it would be a difficult thing for her, but come on, Laurel's gone through so much. If anybody could deal with it, it'd be her."
She also teased fans of the relationship between Laurel and the titular hero with a possible reunion: "I think that she really embraced the fact that he's the Arrow, and it made her love him so much more and it made sense going with the comics that she becomes this Canary, because Canary and Arrow are together. We'll see though. You never know what the writers are going to write."
