The CW’s Arrow resumes Season 4 tonight (at 8/7c) to lay Laurel Lance to rest — after, that is, the team investigates Black Canary’s “resurrection”…?
As seen in the above exclusive sneak peek, Oliver, Thea, Diggle and Felicity are still reeling from Damien Darhk’s cold-blooded, ultimately fatal stabbing of Laurel when Quentin arrives with a most curious and seemingly impossible newspaper headline.
Might Supernatural huntress Madison McLaughlin’s mystery role, debuting tonight, be that of some “Black Canary groupie”? All that Arrow boss Marc Guggenheim would say on that casting is “she’s in a circumstance that is very dependent upon [Laurel’s death. Arrow writer] Brian Ford Sullivan pitched a very interesting story involving her character that is something we haven’t done on the show, and is something I don’t think any show has ever done.”
Whatever the case, press play above to see how the team reacts to this twist.
Elsewhere in the wake of Laurel’s passing: Diggle is overwhelmed with guilt for choosing to believe — and ultimately be betrayed by — his brother Andy, while Lance asks Nyssa to help bring Laurel back.
