In the last two episodes of Arrow Season 5, we will see the return of Katie Cassidy as Dinah Laurel Lance/Black Siren from Earth-2. After those two episodes, Cassidy will be re-joining the show as a series regular again for Season 6. So what can we expect to see for Black Siren when she comes back?
TV Line released their latest edition of Matt’s Inside Line where fans get to ask Matt Mitovich for scoops on various shows. An Arrow fan asked what he could tease about Cassidy’s return to the show in episode 22 and 23.
Show-runner Wendy Mericle revealed that Siren’s return plays a big part in Adrian Chase’s plan as he knows how it will affect the heroes having to fight someone that looks like their fallen ally, the Black Canary. She also revealed that there will be a canary fight between Laurel Lance and Dinah Drake.
“She comes back as part of Chase’s plan. Chase knows exactly what he’s doing, and he understands how unsettling seeing somebody that looks like Laurel Lance is going to be for the rest of the team,” her “dad” Quentin included. “And from a writing perspective, it’s just fun storytelling. Katie Cassidy does an amazing job as Black Siren, and seeing her take on Dinah, or her take on Lance, is going to be fun.”
