The upcoming episode of Arrow, which will be titled “Canaries”, is truly going to have an impact on the show if certain sources are to be believed.
First off, this is the first true episode of Ollie being back in Starling City since his “death” in “The Climb”. And it’s clear that things aren’t exactly he left him. Not only has the team done well in his absence, Laurel is now Black Canary, much to surprise and disappointment.
This tension is only amplified when Count Vertigo returns and causes havoc once again. It appears though that there may be another big plotline in this episode. As you can see in the picture below, something happens to Thea. Which causes Roy (in full Arsenal gear) and Ollie to check on her. Is she about to learn Ollie’s secret? Or maybe it’s something else entirely?
Here’s the official preview for “Canaries”:
“Oliver (Stephen Amell) is thrown by the changes within Team Arrow. He’s used to calling the shots but sees that the team has evolved in his absence and tensions quickly escalate in the lair.
Oliver is furious that Laurel (Katie Cassidy) has been going out as the Black Canary and tells her to stop risking her life, but when Vertigo (guest star Peter Stormare) hits the streets again, Laurel goes against Oliver’s wishes and tracks down Vertigo who hits her with a full dose of the drug. Laurel’s biggest fears revolve around her sister Sara (guest star Caity Lotz) so the Vertigo causes her to hallucinate an epic fight between Canary and Black Canary.
Meanwhile, Chase (guest star Austin Butler) surprises Thea (Willa Holland), and Roy (Colton Haynes) warns Thea to stay away from Malcolm (John Barrowman).”
