A trailer for the Arrow episode "Who Are You?" reveals how Laurel Lance is alive in the midseason premiere. Arrow “Who Are You?” Trailer: How Is Laurel Alive?

A trailer has surfaced online for the January 25 return episode of Arrow, titled “Who Are You?” and in it, we find out exactly why Laurel (Katie Cassidy) appeared to be back at the end of the midseason cliffhanger…


It’s not our Laurel. Most likely, it’s the Black Siren, who Flash viewers know as the Laurel Lance from Earth-2.

“Finally, it’s about time someone figured it out!”

Hopefully we’ll have some official photos soon.

UPDATE: We now have a better-quality version courtesy of the network!

    Knew it wasn’t laurel, the arrow writers did say that season four’s death would stick and wouldn’t be reversed. I’m not disappointed that laurel isn’t alive, I didn’t like laurel that much, I hope if they get a new black canary they’ll have a better actress. I wonder how Black Siren escaped from S.T.A.R. Labs? Maybe Prometheus broke her out because she is working with him.

    this makes me mad because it lowkey felt like the writers would actually bring laurel back but hopefully they redeem black siren or at least have her on for a while. but the cry was kinda weird in the trailer because black siren’s cry had the special effects, as well as it was extremely deadly so idk

    At least it’s not a resurrection and while I’ve never been high on the Canary Cry even in the comics, at least the VFX makes it look less silly than just having Katie scream. I’m guessing Black Siren will get a redemption arc and become Black Canary, thus fulfilling Laurel’s dying wish.

    I don’t care what they do I just want VFX for the freaking Canary Cry on Arrow this time around. Hell I want them to go back and add VFX to every cry scene in past seasons so it’s not just Cassidy standing there making weird faces.

      Same here.

      Katie looks like she’s having fun with this version of Laurel and I think it will translate well.

        I don’t know why I used the word “translate”, I meant that her enthusiasm and fun will come through in her performance. I also think it will play to her strengths more.
