After the (disappointing) episode of Arrow this week we got to hear that team arrow is keeping Black Siren close at A.R.G.U.S. to see if they can make her become the Laurel they know, And Marc Guggenheim did a new interview with Entertainment Weekly and when asked about BS said that we haven’t seen the last of her yet in the Arrow world.
“I think that at the end of the day we sort of saw an opportunity to tell what we thought was an interesting story. I think one of the nice things of the episode that it did for us was that it sort of took Black Siren back from The Flash and sort of put her more on to Arrow’s orbit. That just opens up all sorts of interesting storytelling possibilities for us.”
“That was very intentional, like I said, a good chunk of the end of the episode was about putting Black Siren back in Oliver’s orbit. We could have very easily returned her to the pipeline in Central City, but Oliver and us as writers wanted to keep Black Siren close. Just yesterday in the writer’s room we were talking about all the different potential stories for Black Siren. You know, assuming Katie [Cassidy] is up for it, you haven’t seen the last of Black Siren. I think there is a lot of interesting stuff to be done and at the end of the day – to sort of go back to the point of toying with people’s emotions [laughs] – we really do break story according to a very, very simple barometer which is ‘Is it interesting? Do we have stories to tell?’
[With] Black Siren, there is a lot of potential there. Just this morning, driving into work, I was thinking about just how much I wanted to see a scene where [Quentin] Lance meets Black Siren. I just think that would be really, really, rich to see those emotional stuff. So again, with Katie’s participation, you haven’t seen the last of her.”
