As new seasons of the Arrowverse shows approach, fans are constantly being bombarded with teases. Arrow’s 100th episode will fall on Season 5’s eight episode. A tease for that has already sent us in overdrive, but there’s even more in store. The 100th episode will take place during the four-night Arrowverse crossover. Characters from Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow, and Legends are set to star. Now another former member of Team Arrow is confirmed to appear, Laurel Lance. Laurel actress, Katie Cassidy teased the news on Facebook (via The Arrowverse). Check out the telling photo below.
In what form we can expect the character is the true mystery. It’s unlikely we’ll see her as Black Canary, in a flashback or otherwise. Could she show up as Laurel’s Earth-2 doppelgänger, Black Siren?
Cassidy recently signed a deal with WB TV, akin to one signed by Wentworth Miller and John Barrowman. Because of it, she’ll be a series regular across multiple shows in the Arrowverse. With that in mind, perhaps her four-night crossover appearance will extend to a couple of the other shows also.
Details regarding how Laurel will move from show to show is being kept tightly under wraps. Thanks to the multiverse and time travel, the numerous possibilities are infinite. Maybe we’ll see multiple Laurels, or perhaps an earlier version of the character is set to occur, similar to Damien Darhk’s Legends of Tomorrow Season 2 arrival. Again, the potentialities are endless.
It’ll probably be a while before any concrete information about the crossover episodes emerge. At least, the hiatus is coming to an end. The Flash returns October 4, followed by Arrow on October 5. Supergirl’s second season begins airing October 10. Legends of Tomorrow’s next run kicks off on Thursday, October 13. While we wait, let us know your theories on what’s to come in the comments below.
