While the true identity of Black Canary has been muddled from the second it was revealed that Arrow Season 2 would see the return of Sarah Lance, Laurel (Katie Cassidy)’s younger sister believed dead in the shipwreck that marooned Oliver (Stephen Amell), things look to be getting even more problematic.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, showrunner Andrew Kreisberg teased, “She’s a new player in town. A vigilante who avenges wronged women.

“[She] seems to have a fixation on the Arrow and our team is trying to figure out why.”

As far as avenging wronged women go, being left for dead at sea by a douchebag spoilt brat would suggest an origin story that supports Sarah Lance – played by Death Valley‘s Caity Lotz – but let’s not discount the fact that Laurel has her own fascination with Arrow and her own crusading streak. After all, the showrunners do like to prolong the tease…

Arrow Season 1 will be available to own 23 September 2013. Pre-order it on DVD for £21.02 or on Blu-ray for £27.49 from Amazon.co.uk. Season 2 will air on Sky 1 later this year.
