Next week’s episode of The CW’s Arrow is set to feature the return of the Huntress. Titled Birds of Prey, a whole host of new images have been released for the episode. Those familiar with the DC world will know that the Birds of Prey are a team of female heroes, often made up of Barbara Gordon, Huntress and Black Canary.
The official word on the episode reads:
“When Frank Bertinelli (guest star Jeffrey Nordling) is arrested, Oliver knows it’s only a matter of time before his daughter, Helena, AKA The Huntress (guest star Jessica De Gouw), returns to town. To make matters worse, Laurel is picked to try Frank’s case, putting her right in the path of Helena. Oliver tells Sara he will handle his ex-girlfriend, but when Helena takes hostages at the courthouse, including Laurel, the Canary will stop at nothing to save her sister. When The Huntress and Canary meet, an epic battle begins. Meanwhile, Roy realizes he needs to keep Thea safe, but doesn’t like the way he is forced to go about it.”
All sounds massively promising to me, and it seems as if Laurel Lance is about to find out that her sister Sara is the Canary.
Birds of Prey will air on The CW in the US in 26th March.
Also, there’s some other pretty cool Arrow/The Flash crossover news coming shortly…
