One of the more fun and interesting additions to Season 3 of Arrow was Tatsu Yamashiro, who would soon become Katana in one way or another. She was a key part of the flashbacks for Season 3, and helped Oliver in the present with his “resurrection”. And yes, she wields an epic Japanese Katana, but it was never hinted that she would be anything more than that…until now.

“This is Your Sword” is the upcoming episode of Arrow, the last one before the season finale. And an image has leaked from it. And though blurry, you can clearly see Katana in her New 52 costume form. It’ll be fun to see how her arrival on Team Arrow comes about, until them, check out this synopsis for the episode!


“Oliver/Al Sah-him (Stephen Amell) finishes his training and is left with two final tasks to become the next Ra’s al Ghul. Ra’s (guest star Matt Nable) threatens Nyssa (guest star Katrina Law) and delivers some shocking news. Meanwhile, Malcolm (John Barrowman) makes a surprising offer to Team Arrow and Thea (Willa Holland) goes to see Roy (Colton Haynes). “
