Speaking to EW, Stephen Amell points out an interesting story possibility for the Black Siren. Stephen Amell Talks About Black Siren’s Arrow Return

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Stephen Amell just unboxed the very true possibility that the people of Star City might have a particular reaction to the Black Siren (Katie Cassidy) in Arrow Season 6.

“She looks exactly like Laurel Lance, she is Laurel Lance,” Amell said in a quote posted in this week’s Spoiler Room. “Laurel Lance is the most famous dead person in Star City, so eventually, at some point, if she is reintroduced into public life, how do we unpack that? I’m excited for that. That’s the dynamic I think could be interesting.”

We may see what happens after Arrow returns October 12 on The CW. Read some spoilers here!

    We’ll see if Katie can really do something with this villain that turns into something remarkable. The whole Laurel Lance storyline was terrible and her portrayal was just forgettable.

      So forgettable that you’re still bothered by it years later?

        This person acknowledging that laurel had a storyline isn’t really indicative that they’re bothered by it though so… You can still remember a character had a storyline and not remember the details of it.

        Idk why you needed to be rude about it though especially considering the OP wasn’t being rude at all. I’ve seen worse things said about Felicity said on this site.

          I don’t consider it to be rude, just an observation. It’s just odd to me that the people who claim “sexism” are the same people who often tear down any woman who is not named Felicity Smoak. It’s okay to like one character or actor without trashing another, or *gasp* to like both.

            How is it an observation when you’re jumping to conclusions? You don’t know if she remembers the details of Laurel’s storyline because she never indicated it.

            I personally don’t remember Laurel’s storylines in season 1 and all I remember in season 2 was that she was an addict. If I say those storylines and acting were forgettable and I mention it now, how is it tearing her down when it’s a simple critique? Most movie /TV critics do it every day. It’s not a slight on Katie. Just that maybe this character wasn’t in her wheelhouse. Which you may disagree, that’s fine. But you have to.

            And where did the whole ‘sexism’ comment come from? Craig you’re making this more than what it is. I just thought you were being rude, not sexist. Let’s not stray from the subject here.

            Sorry I didn’t finish a sentence in the above comment…

            You may disagree, that’s fine. But you have to accept that other people will feel differently without needing to be rude to them by putting words in their mouth.

            Personally how I saw the OPs comment was she didn’t enjoy Laurel’s story lines and was mostly indifferent to her before, and now she’s reluctant about BS but is open to it (the “we’ll see”).

            And btw when I brought up Felicity before I don’t require you to defend her becuase I know you’re not a fan. I was just using it as a point of reference. There have been worse things that have been said in these comment sections

            There have also been worse things that have been said that have been deleted before, including posts that you know I deleted because you were the one to point them out to me, PallJ.

            Also, you accused me of jumping to conclusions when you yourself just jumped to the conclusion that I’m “not a fan” of Felicity. I’ve stated on numerous occasions that Felicity made the show better and I’ve never had anything but appreciation for Emily, so the narrative of my not being a fan of the character is not true. Emily knows what I think of her and Felicity, and that’s the important part; she took a character who was meant to be a one time thing and made her an icon. That’s wonderful.

            The “sexism” comment was a generality; a lot of the people who claim that someone who doesn’t like Felicity is sexist are the same people who will tear down Katie/Laurel, Susan Williams, or anyone else that comes in the way.

          Your twitter feed is swamped with vile comments about Katie/Laurel and her fans, Pally. Kinda rich for you to come on Craig’s site and try to school him on politeness.

        Perhaps a better reply from the curator of the site would have been to say, we all see things differently, but personally I really enjoyed Katie’s performance as Laurel, and am looking forward to seeing what she does with Black Siren? (Which also doubles as my own personal response!)

          That’s a wonderful response. But I think my own response was appropriate considering the vitriol and disrespect that Katie gets on a daily basis from the #ByeByeBirdie crowd.
