Kingston first appeared on the superhero drama during late Season 1, when Dinah returned to Starling City to make amends with her daughter Laurel and husband Quentin as well as posit the theory that their other daughter, Sara, was in fact alive. At the time, that was just shoddily sourced crazy talk, but now… well, we’ll see if Quentin has the resolve to keep Sara’s super secret when Dinah resurfaces in Episode 14.

Arrow lead Stephen Amell hinted at Kingston’s encore in a tweet to actress Natalie Morales, who among other things is a huge fan of Doctor Who, where the British redhead recurs as River Song.

Well known for her run as ER‘s Dr. Corday, Kingston’s more recent TV credits include episodes of NCIS and Private Practice.

Arrow resumes Season 2 this Wednesday at 8/7c with the first of two episodes introducing Barry Allen aka The Flash (played by Glee‘s Grant Gustin).

    • Right?!?!?!? I would love to see them together on Doctor Who. But this works too. What would we have to do to get Alex and John to share some screen time together?

  • Oh yay. Looking forward to this, not least because it probably means the return of the Black Canary too. :) Isn’t it sometime around here that Nyssa is supposed to show up as well? This show has been on fire this season – I’m loving it!

    • Never mind, I just saw the link to the Nyssa story. So Nyssa appears in episode 13 and Dinah shows up in episode 14. Probably not a large leap to think the two things are connected. :)
