The CW’s promo trailer for the January 25 return episode of Arrow (watch the trailer here) may have given away how and why “Laurel Lance” is among the living in the episode, titled “Who Are You?” and fortunately our friends over at TV Line were able to ask the show’s Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim about that.
“Without commenting on the promo, which I have nothing to do with, and without commenting on the spoiler, I would say that the episode ends with laying a very specific seed, with a very specific game plan on our part that we hope to see come to fruition,” he told the site’s Matt Webb Mitovich diplomatically.

Could that “game plan” be the whole thing about fulfilling Laurel’s promise to find a new Canary?
Speaking earlier to TV Line, the show’s other Executive Producer, Wendy Mericle, said that “there’s definitely a possibility” that a Black Canary may suit up by season’s end.
“Look, it’s hard to do a show about Green Arrow without having a Black Canary,” she said. “I don’t know if it will happen this season or when, but… we are going to be true to origins in the DC universe, and she’s always going to be there.”
