[DISCLAIMER: This article includes a major spoiler from Arrow Season 5, Episode 10 “Who Are You?” which aired tonight on The CW]

Last month, during the mid-season finale of Arrow Season 5, we saw the sudden return of Dinah Laurel Lance a.k.a. the Black Canary (Katie Cassidy) who died at the end of Season 4. During tonight’s episode, she explained that her sister Sara Lance (Caity Lotz) had saved her through time travel, but soon enough, it became very clear that this wasn’t the same Laurel that we lost in the fourth season.

It was revealed that it was the Earth-2 version of Laurel Lance, who showed up on The Flash last season as the villainous Black Siren. While she did end up getting locked up in the pipeline at Star Labs, she managed to escape, but how? She had some help thanks to the villainous Prometheus who broke Laurel out of her cage.

“Who Are You?” — (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET) (TV-14, LV) (HDTV)

OLIVER WANTS JUSTICE; FELICITY WANTS REVENGE — Worried that Prometheus is right and he is truly a killer at heart, Oliver (Stephen Amell) looks for any ray of hope and finds it in what seems to be the miraculous return of Laurel Lance (guest star Katie Cassidy). However, Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards), still reeling from Detective Malone’s murder, is bent on revenge – she wants to stop Prometheus at any cost. While in prison, Diggle (David Ramsey) fights for his life. Gregory Smith directed the episode written by Ben Sokolowski & Brian Ford Sullivan (#510).  Original airdate 1/25/2017.”
