'Arrow' Season 5 Mid-Season Premiere Predictions & Spoilers: Laurel Lance Possibly Resurrected By Talia Al Ghul Through Lazarus Pit
The mid-season finale of "Arrow" Season 5 concluded with the shocking return of Laurel Lance despite being killed off in the fourth season. So why is Katie Cassidy's character back from the dead? There are several theories on why Laurel's resurrection but some believe it might have to do with Talia al Ghul's introduction after the "Arrow" Season 5 mid-season premiere.
It has long been confirmed that Talia al Ghul will play a major part in the second half of "Arrow" Season 5 but is it possible that Nyssa's sister has something to do with Laurel Lance's resurrection? The revelation that the new Laurel has a mean streak somehow points to the possibility that the former Black Canary was resurrected through a Lazarus Pit and sent to terrorize Oliver Queen in the "Arrow" Season 5 mid-season premiere.
A new extended trailer for the "Arrow" Season 5 mid-season premiere puts the focus on Laurel Lance's return, suggesting that someone is trying to deceive Oliver Queen. Team Arrow ponders on the resurrection while Laurel terrorizes Oliver, destroying the Black Canary tribute statue with her powers. Laurel's rage was immediately interpreted by fan as a result of being dipped into a Lazarus Pit, possibly by upcoming character Talia al Ghul.
"Arrow" fans already know that the Lazarus Pit has horrible consequences on the characters it resurrects. Thea Queen still struggles with the darkness while Sara Lance went crazy right after she was revived (via Variety). There are speculations that Laurel Lance might have been brought back through a Lazarus Pit by someone connected to the League of Assassins, possibly Talia al Ghul. The connection could be traced to Nyssa al Ghul, who had formed a strong friendship with Laurel.
Did Talia al Ghul resurrect Laurel Lance through a Lazarus Pit? The truth will be revealed when "Arrow" Season 5 returns on The CW on January 25.
