As much as we never wanted to see it, we all knew it was coming. It was only a matter of time, after (SPOILER) Sara Lance died in the season premiere instead of Laurel Lance, the show’s most obnoxious character. Yes, it’s comic-book canon, but sometimes, man, you gotta tell canon to go screw, especially when it involves David Cassidy’s daughter, otherwise you end up with something like this:
I know. It breaks my heart, too, y’all.
We still don’t know when Katie Cassidy will officially make her debut as Black Canary on the series, but it’s likely to happen in the midseason premiere of Arrow soemtime in January.
In the bird category of female superheroes on television right now, I’ll take Mockingbird every time, thank you very much.
