As reported a number of times here on CarterMatt, Katie Cassidy is going to be appearing on “The Flash” later next month as Black Siren, effectively the Earth-2 version of Laurel Lance. This version, though, may be working with Zoom as one of his meta-humans, which probably is going to make things awkward for the team as STAR Labs. Much like with Caitlin Snow / Killer Frost, how do you work against someone who was a friend on Earth-1? Also, how do you do it knowing that this “good” counterpart is already dead?
In getting a further sense of the awkwardness that is going to present itself with Black Siren on the show, all you have to do is check out what Carlos Valdes had to say to Entertainment Weekly recently:
“Cisco reacts in a pretty unexpected way … There’s a little bit of a morbid shock, because the characters have an awareness to the fact that Laurel Lance is dead. That death had some effect on these characters in this world. So to see Black Siren, more than anything, is a shock to the senses. To know that someone relatively close to you is dead and to see a version of them still alive would be harrowing and jarring for anyone. There’s a bit of a disturbance there in terms of seeing her like that again.”
Let’s just hope now that we don’t see Black Siren die during her upcoming appearance; even if she is not necessarily on the same side as some of our heroes, we do want to have an avenue in which Cassidy can still appear on the show.
