‘Arrow’ Season 5 News & Update: Laurel Lance Alive; Reportedly An Impostor Behind Black Siren To Fight Oliver
The first half of "Arrow" Season 5 left a major cliffhanger that left a big question into the minds of its fans. The viewers were surprised to see Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy) alive knowing that she was killed off in the previous season. Now The CW dropped a new trailer that would answer all their hanging questions.
The fans are now wondering what could have brought Laurel back to life in "Arrow" Season 5 after seeing her in the Arrow Bunker. In the new trailer for the show's next episode -- titled "Who are You?" -- it is revealed that the Laurel viewers see is actually an impostor pretending as Oliver's (Stephen Amell) old pal. In fact, the Earth-1 Laurel who became the Black Canary is gone and what people see is the Black Siren, CinemaBlend reported.
Black Siren who is first met at "The Flash" Season 2 is actually Laurel's Earth-2 doppelganger that becomes Zoom's minion when he visited Earth-1 to cause turmoil to the Central City. Compared to Black Canary, Black Siren doesn't need technology to send a Canary Cry to her enemies. In fact, she is a metahuman that only has to open mouth to scream to fight her opposes that might be seen in the continuation of "Arrow" Season 5.
Meanwhile, Collider added that the timeline reset causes the Earth-1 Laurel to become the Black Siren because of the Flashpoint in "Arrow" Season 5. The publication noted that the arrival of the new Laurel might cause a big dilemma for the Team Arrow that might end with the need of Oliver to kill her.
This might be too dark to happen but if ever this occurs, this will surely break Quentin's (Paul Blackthorne) heart. It looks like the next half of "Arrow" Season 5 carries a lot of twists that fans would surely watch on its return on Jan. 25 on The CW.
