Cinemablend – Black Siren showed her good and bad side in Season 6 of Arrow, and with Oliver locked away and Diaz in hiding when Season 7 begins, fans are wondering if Katie Cassidy’s Earth-2 vigilante will turn full hero or if she’ll return to her wicked ways. New showrunner Beth Schwartz spoke with CinemaBlend and other outlets during roundtable interviews at San Diego Comic-Con, and said we will continue to wonder such things when Season 7 begins, but did share a bit of what the Laura Lance doppelgänger will be up to when things pick back up:
So, I love Black Siren. She is so fun. What we loved about Katie and the character from last year is that you never really know which side she’s on. Is she good? Is she bad? She falls somewhere in between. And so this year, with Lance’s death — which was really sad, I’m still not over it — she has a lot. You know, she’s pissed. She’s pissed at Diaz, so she has a grudge. And so we’re gonna see her dealing with that. . . . Yeah, she’s gonna play between good and bad again, and we’re gonna see how that affects her when she wants to get revenge for Lance’s death.
Black Siren will apparently be out for blood when Season 7 begins, and she’ll have a major score to settle with Ricardo Diaz for his part in the death of Quentin Lance, among other things. Now, her specific thirst for justice in this case doesn’t seem as if it will lead her to give up her wicked ways, which means she might end up clashing with various members of Team Arrow on her vengeful quest. The positive side of Laurel’s evil streak is that things haven’t changed for her in general as much as they have for Team Arrow proper, so she’s likely been able to continue her search for Diaz uninterrupted, while the heroes have tried to keep their noses clean and names out of vigilante-bashing headlines.
As far as Black Siren’s mixups with our heroes are concerned, Juliana Harkavy teased that Laurel and Dinah will be butting heads again in Season 7. Harkavy, who shared a first look at her character in Season 7 not that long ago, revealed that the two women will still be at odds, similar to how they were throughout Arrow Season 6. But beyond the clashing, it appears each might gain a mutual respect for the other before the season ends. Here’s how Harkavy put it during the Comic-Con roundtables.
It was intense, and I think that relationship and that dynamic is evolving in a very cool way. You know, they are still definitely at odds, but yeah, there is going to be a shift there, for sure. Actually, some of my favorite writing this season has been the stuff between Dinah and Laurel.
Juliana Harkavy was such a fan of her scenes with Laurel this season thus far, it actually had her pitching the duo make their own Birds of Prey group, after the topic came up. Harkavy’s answer all but confirms that Arrow won’t feature an iteration of the iconic superhero team in the first half of Season 7, but it would seem to indicate that Harkavy thinks Dinah and Laurel will be on good enough terms that they could eventually team up for their own spinoff. Of course, Harkavy also pointed to the fact that DC is developing a Birds of Prey movie, and even though she might have thought of that as reasoning to make it happen on Arrow, we all know the DCEU has often led to Arrow excluding or removing characters from its narratives.
As I said before the first trailer for the new season of Arrow was shown at the Comic-Con panel yesterday, It dose not show a lot but we do get to see Katie in lawyer mood still pretending to be Earth 1 Laurel, Will she still be black siren?, will she join team Arrow?, will she be good? guess we will have to wait till October to find out.
unfortunately we have some bad news as much as we were all looking forward to seeing Katie at today’s Comic-Con she has had to pull out and won’t be attending the Arrow SDCC panel later today due to family emergency, I would like to wish Katie the best with this emergency and hope all is ok in the end. But the good news is we should get the see some of season 7 and with it some new Katie footage.
So far it looks like Katie will be at this years Comic-Con 2018 with her Arrow cast.
Marvel Studios and HBO are both skipping Comic-Con 2018, so shows like The Big Bang Theory, The Flash, Supergirl, Riverdale and Arrow are taking the spotlight instead.
All of these shows and more will be representing Warner Bros TV at the pop culture convention next month, and the studio will even get to move into the prestigious Hall H on Sunday. As usual, there will be autograph signings with key cast members throughout the weekend, a world-premiere of NBC’s Lost-like thriller Manifest, and special screenings of The 100 and ArrowVerse animated spin-off Freedom Fighters: The Ray.
But it’s the panel line-ups we’re all most interested in, so let’s have a look
SATURDAY, JULY 21
Arrow (4.15pm): A special video preview and panel with cast Stephen Amell, David Ramsey, Emily Bett Rickards, Katie Cassidy, Echo Kellum, Juliana Harkavy, Rick Gonzalez and Colton Haynes. Ballroom 20.
Last night was the big season final of Arrow season six and man did it not disappoint, Laurel did come full circle from this time last year and we at long long long last got the meeting between Sara and Laurel and we as well go the the exit of Paul Blackthorne with him protecting Laurel it in the end and then dying the same way that Earth 1’s Laurel did with a seizure. Next season is looking good with Laurel becoming one of team Arrow I would say. HD Screen captures are now up in the gallery

comicbook.com – Arrow’s sixth season comes to a close this week, and it sounds like some interesting things could be in store for Laurel Lance/Black Siren (Katie Cassidy).
ComicBook.com’s Brandon Davis recently got a chance to chat with Cassidy during last weekend’s Heroes and Villains FanFest Nashville. In the process, Cassidy’s teased Laurel’s unpredictable role in the season’s fight against Ricardo Diaz (Kirk Acevedo).
“I think she’s a really interesting character.” Cassidy explained. “What I love about her too is that you never know what you’re going to get with her. She’s sort of a loose cannon. I also look at her kind of as like her own island, in a way. If you think about it, you’ve got the team, you’ve got Diaz, who [Laurel] is maybe not best friends with now, and then you have me. And so it’s sort of like ‘Where do I stand?'”
While there’s no telling exactly how the season finale will play out, Cassidy hinted that Laurel could grow to be some sort of an ally to Team Arrow, or have the opportunity to kind of make her own way.
“I think, the team, she could definitely be of service to, if they trust her.” Cassidy continued. “I think that’d be a really interesting situation, if the writers decide to go with that route. But I think her having the ability to be this chameleon, and change personalities, and go undercover and in disguise and be this female Jason Bourne is great.”
And as Arrow gears up for it’s seventh season, Cassidy teased what fans could expect for the fan-favorite Earth-2 doppelganger. Fans have seen Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne) attempt to reedem Laurel throughout the back half of this season, something that she’s confident could still happen.
”Yeah, absolutely.” Cassidy revealed. “I think there’s room for redemption for her character. And I think, what I believe is that if they do reveal more of her backstory, and sort of tell her story actually, there’ll be a lot more of an understanding of why she acts the way that she does.”
But before that, there’s a chance that the season six finale will drop a bombshell for Laurel, with Blackthorne confirmed to be leaving the show. And while Cassidy is sad to see her longtime co-star go, she hinted that there’s always a chance that he could return to the Arrowverse in some way.
“I love Paul so much.” Cassidy explained. “He’s such an incredible actor and person. He and I got really close, I think he would probably say I was the closest one to him. So, he’s gone, but I mean…is he really gone?”
“It’s sad, it really is.” It makes me sad because we all worked so hard for so long. It just kinda sucks when it’s like…He’s an OG. He was there from day one, I was there from day one, with Stephen, David, and Willa… Let’s hope that there’s a way to work him back in.”
