We still don’t know a lot about Kat McNamara‘s character on Arrow; it is said that her character name is “Maya” and casting notices likened her to being a “Buffy the Superhero Slayer” type.

But what we do know now is that she makes her first Arrow appearance in the episode “Unmasked” airing next Monday, December 3 on The CW, though our guess with this photo release is that she is not the person under the new Green Arrow mask. We’ll see about that, right?

In any event, TV Line has shared a first look at Kat McNamara in her Arrow role, and you can see it below. We can’t wait to see more, though, if you want to see photos of other characters in “Unmasked,” you can find them here.

(We’ll also note that the photo caption lists her character not as Maya, but as Mia… another name that is prevalent in Green Arrow lore, as the name “Mia Dearden” – an alias used by Thea before on the show – was the modern-day Speedy in the Kevin Smith era.)

For those of you unfamiliar with Katherine McNamara, she starred as Clary in the cancelled-too-soon Freeform series Shadowhunters. Before that, she appeared in another fun but gone too soon series for MTV called Happyland. Several episodes of the wrapped Shadowhunters are still yet to air and will premiere February 25 on Freeform.

You can see the photo below.

    The bad thing about this episode if the Guggenheim is writing it. That’s the absolute last thing we need for this show now that it’s improving.

    Mia and Stanley = Quiver. The difference between Arrow and the comic: Ollie’s not dead, but Laurel is. I hope this is where the show is going! What a way to bring her back! #JusticeForLaurel

    The only good thing is that he has to write what he’s told this time around. Beth is the boss now.

        What MQLdr means is that Guggenheim isn’t allowed to just do whatever he wants now. In the case of him writing an episode, he has to do what he’s told by the showrunners of a show. If he writes a script they don’t feel works for their vision, he has to rewrite it.
