Alex Kingston Cast as Laurel Lance's Mother in Arrow



EW has learned that Katie Cassidy's character, Laurel Lance, will get a surprise visit from her mother on The CW's Arrow. "Doctor Who" actress Alex Kingston has landed the role of Dinah Lance and will make an appearance in the series later on this season. The reason behind the character's return is said to be "to make amends with her family that she abandoned years earlier following the tragic death of her daughter aboard Oliver Queen’s yacht."

Dinah Lance was the original Black Canary in Golden Age DC comics and eventually handed it off to her daughter. Whether she or her daughter will take up this mantel in the series remains to be seen.

This past episode wasn't my favorite. I wish Firefly had a bigger role, but then again, he's not that prominent in the comics world, anyway.

Still, enjoyable enough.

Deadshot Will Return on Arrow!



DC Comics' master assassin Deadshot appeared in one of the early episodes of The CW's Arrow and was presumed dead, but if you know the character then you'll remember how many times he's faked his death to get out of a situation.

TV Guide is reporting that the character will return in a future episode sometime this season. Deadshot will return in an episode titled "Dead to Rights," written by Geoff Johns, and will make another appearance later this season where he will face David Ramsey's character John Diggle.

Arrow airs on Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

I'm hoping that we get to meet Judge Grell someday. (it would rock if Mike Grell was playing him)

I'm pretty impressed with the show in general. I just hope we get a bit more from Diggle though. He's a strong character already.

I'm loving the fact that Deadshot survived his first episode. It seemed like a waste to toss away such a good villain, especially someone who's tailor made to be a recurring character for Arrow.

What do we think of the dude that plays Slade? I like the casting, and I like the bit of misdirection with his character. Looking forward to his character arc.

Definitely, especially considering what we saw of him when Ollie left the island

I think he is going to be a really fun character to follow. I am really enjoying the way the story on the island is unfolding.

Surprised, really, at how much I'm enjoying this story.
