Though the fate of many are up in the air in regards to Arrow’s season 5 finale, there are some that we know will be alive. One of them is Black Siren, aka Laurel Lance from Earth-2. This villain made her debut on Flash last season after the Laurel from our Earth died at the hands of Damien Darhk. But then, in Arrow Season 05, she made her appearance before Team Arrow, and shockwaves were felt.
She was on the side of Prometheus, and she helped him repeatedly get the best of Oliver Queen and company. And since she’s been upgraded to series regular for Season 06, we know she survive the destruction of Lian Yu. So, what will her role be in the season? Well, according to Producer Wendy Mericle, one part of it will be redemption:
“I don’t know if there’s any question about whether or not the [idea] of redemption will come up; it hasto,” Mericle told TVLine. “Her father is there. Oliver is there. Everyone is going to be asking whether or not it’s possible to find a little piece of Laurel, the Laurel Lance they knew and loved, in there somewhere.”
Of course, you should expect her to be quite resistant to this, especially Mericle also noted that she likes seeing Laurel as a villain.
Arrow returns to the CW this fall.
