Despite it being a superhero series in its first season, “Arrow” has actually managed to make some pretty significant progress when it comes to its story. Already, Oliver Queen has a new partner-in-crime in Dig; and speaking of crime, he was arrested at the end of last week’s episode under suspicion of being the vigilante that he truly is.
It is already pretty obvious that Oliver needs a little bit more help than just his bodyguard, and this could come via his own ex-girlfriend Laurel. After all, we do already know that she will turn into the Black Canary someday, and the real question is just when it is the right time for her to do so. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, executive producer Andrew Kreisberg does not exactly promise that we will be seeing the literal manifestation of the character anytime soon … though there will be some more signs that the Canary is bubbling underneath the surface:
“There will be more stuff coming up where you see glimpses of her as the hero and — especially as her relationship with the arrow deepens — her seeing the benefits of working outside the law … There is a fun double-date with Oliver, the Huntress, Laurel and Tommy [coming up]. For the Birds of Prey fans out there — you do get to see a Laurel and Helena not entirely enjoy having dinner with each other.”
Kreisberg also promises that when it comes to some other iconic characters from the DC universe, we may not be done with Deadshot just yet. As he said, we never saw his body (though this may be the least surprising news ever).
When do you think it is the appropriate for Laurel’s alter ego to be first revealed on the show? We want to hear some of your thoughts below, and you can also catch a first glimpse of Firefly on the show here.
