Arrow First Look: Katie Cassidy as Black Canary — When Will She Debut?

The CW’s Arrow has released the first images of Katie Cassidy in her Black Canary getup, and, um, bulls-eye!

The seed for the passing of the baton bo staff was planted in the Season 2 finale, when Sara left Starling City to rejoin the League of Assassins, but first gifted her sister with her leather jacket. But ever since Sara’s subsequent death in the Season 3 premiere, Laurel has been on a mission to avenge the tragedy, and to that end has been training with boxer/former vigilante Ted “Wildcat” Grant to fulfill, as show boss Marc Guggenheim puts it, “her comic book trajectory.”

These photos are tagged with the episode title “Left Behind,” suggesting that Laurel will pour herself into the leather, buckles and wig in the midseason premiere aka Episode 10 airing sometime in January 2015, the first outing after the show breaks for the holidays on Dec. 10.
