The Flash Photos: Arrow's Katie Cassidy Makes Some Noise as Black Siren

Some six weeks after her grisly Arrow death, Katie Cassidy will resurface on CW sister series The Flash next Tuesday — and she’s not gonna be quiet about it, as seen in these first photos.

In the episode “Invincible,” Zoom unleashes an army of Earth-Two metahumans on Central City — and the most motley crew is led by none other than Black Canary’s doppelgänger, the Black Siren (played by Cassidy). The photos suggest we’ll get some backstory on Zoom’s main meta-minions, seeing as both not-so-dearly departed Reverb and Killer Frost (played by Carlos Valdes and Danielle Panabaker) are featured.

Previewing Cisco’s reaction, for one, to laying eyes on a recently deceased friend, Carlos Valdes told TVLine, “Laurel’s death is pretty ubiquitous in this DC TV universe [so to see] a version of Laurel that’s alive, that does things to somebody’s consciousness, especially after processing grief. There’s definitely a bit of shock there and difficulty grappling with reality.”

Elsewhere in the penultimate Season 2 episode, Wally takes to the streets to help The Flash, which worries Joe, while Iris and Henry are concerned about Barry battling Zoom anew.

    I’m amused by the mesh they’ve incorporated into her look – a nice nod to the original Canary costume.

  2. Anne says:

    I’d consider coming back to watch both series if The Flash kept this version of Laurel.

  3. Karen says:

    Just when I thought the Flash couldn’t get any worse this season.

    • Matt says:

      Yeah, good thing it’s not Arrow levels of crap though.

      • grys03 says:

        Not so sure I’d describe it as ‘worse’ or ‘crap’ but it certainly has been dragging the Zoom story far too long & making it way to complicated at the cost of some really fun villains – Grodd, King Shark etc.
        .
        & by complicated I’m talking the non-comic book fan viewers. Missus has been constantly asking questions during this season in particular the second half – where previously she was simply enjoying the show.
        .
        But on a scale of crap The Flash is still better than most TV shows not to mention the amount of reality rubbish on TV.

          as you say this though arrow has dragged Damian darhk on for almost 2 season. Alot longer than zoom has been in flash tbh

    • Ugonna Wosu says:

      I love The Flash. My favourite is Legends of Tomorrow.

    • ROY. says:

      Katie as moved to another show and you still criticize her it’s the green eyed monster called ENVY is’nt it in fact i replied to a similar comment recently and you are absolute CONFIRMATION of the point i was making!!!!!!.

    • tvjunkie says:

      And yet it’s miles better than that Olicity soap opera they mistakenly call Arrow

  4. Victoria says:

    Anyone else like the Black Siren costume better than the Black Canary one Laurel wore? Minus the cape though.

  5. J says:

    Can’t The Flash keep Katie Cassidy for next season?!?..I miss her already😥

  6. A. D. says:

    I hope she stays!

  7. Joey Padron says:

    Good photos from the next episode. Excited to see Katie as Black Siren on the show!

  8. Lori says:

    It’s can’t wait, she looks awesome. I hope she lives to see next season. I’m feeling some Hunter Canary chemistry vibes.

  9. James D says:

    she looks awesome love the little nods to the original BC. Ya done f’d up Arrow ya done f’d up real bad. Wish we could get a birds of prey series.

  10. Leo says:

    I hope Katie sells the hell out of this role and proves to those haters once and for all.

  11. Ugonna Wosu says:

    Katie had great chemistry with the guy playing Sisco, hope they have scenes together.

  12. aaron says:

    Bring back Katie full time!

  13. Living proof some women can truly suck a golf ball through a garden hose.
    Imagine the audition…open wider please…lol.

  14. George H. says:

    Be cool if Katie actually became a regular on The Flash. Then when there are crossover episodes with Arrow, she can hook up with Oliver and give Felicity the bird whenever she sees her, lol. Would add some spice back to Arrow.

  15. This looks like a great episode. Flash certainly knows how to keep the fans happy, while Arrow is a complete disaster. Katie looks amazing as Black Siren, if this is the only version of Laurel Lance they will give us, then they better bring this one back as a regular. There shouldn’t be a show without her.

    • tvjunkie says:

      Yeah I’m 3 episodes behind on Arrow now, but up to date on Flash. I just have no motivation to tune into the Olicitiy “Teen Angst” Drama since they killed off one of the most important characters in the Green Arrow universe.

  16. habsye15 says:

    I do hope the writers utilize the character well, i wasn’t pleased how Arrow treated her character.

  17. Brigid says:

    Katie looks so bad@ss in these photos!!! Love the darker hair and long coat on this costume. Can’t wait to see her again!!!!
