Spoilers for Arrow season 3 are flying like, well, arrows from a bow, including news about the Lance family. In season 2, the Black Canary, Sara Lance (Caity Lotz), gave her leather jacket to her sister Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy) before leaving Starling City. In the comics, Laurel is Black Canary, and there has been buzz around her becoming Black Canary in the TV series. While Sara’s Black Canary has become a beloved (and badass) presence on the show, it could be a compelling story to watch Laurel, an assistant district attorney with a host of personal problems, transform into a superhero. Perhaps we’ll see the sisters as a crime-fighting team, even if Laurel isn’t fully a costumed vigilante? Will we see them working more often with Felicity, as the show develops a Birds of Prey-like female superhero team?
Meanwhile, Sara and Laurel’s dad, Detective Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne), was last seen in the season 2 finale collapsing from internal injuries.
As we head closer to SDCC, here’s a round-up of spoilers concerning the Lances.
Maybe we can breathe a sigh of relief for the injured Quentin, as the official season 3 description from the CW reveals that as the season begins, he’s now “Captain Lance.” In the wake of the events of the season 2 finale he called off the Anti-Vigilante Task Force. Meanwhile, TV Guide has reported that Sara Lance will be in the season 3 premiere. In an interview with GreenArrowTV, EP Marc Guggenheim dropped the info that the second episode of season 3 is titled “Sara” and she “looms very large in that episode, but that name may have a double meaning.” According to EP Andrew Kreisberg in TV Guide, Sara “plays a big role in the new season. We have her booked for three episodes and hopefully for more.” As for whether Laurel will be taking on the Black Canary persona any time soon, Kreisberg hints it will take some time (however, it sounds as if it may be headed that direction). “You can’t just put on a mask and go running around. You’ll get killed,” Kreisberg says. He added “fans are going to be very, very excited about her trajectory this year.” Laurel will also have a new love interest this season.
There’s no word yet as to when Dinah Lance, played by the amazing Alex Kingston, will return, but hopefully we’ll see more of her in season 3.
