– SPOILERS FOR ARROW SEASON THREE AHEAD –
Season three of The CW’s Arrow has been one insanity driven WTF moment after another, and it all began with the death of season two’s heroine of excellence, Sara Lance, at the end of the premiere. Since then, we’ve watched as Sara’s friends and family struggle to cope with their loss, one in particular taking things to another level entirely. And as anyone who knows DC lore is already aware, there’s only one path it can lead to.
Now with some episodes under our belt, The CW’s is offering fans their first look at Laurel Lance’s (Katie Cassidy) eventual costume when she finally dons a mask of her own as Black Canary:
Like the first reveal of Roy’s Arsenal suit, we really like what we’re seeing here and can’t wait to see it play into the context of the series.
It’s starting to appear as if every season of Arrow is in some way focused on Oliver taking on and/or training a new member of his team. Season one was Diggle and Felicity, season two was Roy and Sara and now season three appears to be Laurel. Knowing that, we can’t wait to watch Ms. Cassidy start kicking some major costumed butt on the show. Plus, it will also add a much needed layer of complexity to the ongoing relationship between Oliver and the last remaining Lance daughter.
Well done, Arrow. Well done.
