Last week came the reveal of Katie Cassidy’s Laurel Lance dressed in her Black Canary outfit. Fans of the show have long been wondering when we will see the full transformation and Laurel’s onscreen debut in the outfit. Turns out the first couple of episodes after the show’s winter break will be about just that.
Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg spoke with THR recently about Laurel’s involvement in the upcoming “Arrow” & “The Flash” crossover event. In his answer, he reveals the plans for Black Canary:
“Laurel appears in the Arrow episode. She’s not as present in these episodes, but that is because we’ve been building up to her appearance as the Black Canary. We sort of said that Sara was the Canary, but Laurel is the Black Canary.
Episodes 10, 11 and 12 are a three-part trilogy that are about her. And episode 13 I think I can spoil, is called ‘Canaries.’ For fans of Laurel and for fans of Katie [Cassidy], they’re going to get more than their fill after the winter break.”
The mid-season finale of “Arrow” will be the ninth episode “The Climb” which goes to air on December 10th.
