Last fall, it was announced that Stargate SG-1 actress Lexa Doig had been cast as the iconic Batman character Talia al Ghul, daughter of Ra’s al Ghul (played by Matt Nable) on the CW series Arrow. She will be a recurring character throughout Season 5B when the show returns on January 25. However we don’t know much about her storyline and what she will be up to when she makes her debut in the DC TV Universe.
However, thanks to TV Line, that released their Winter TV Preview featuring several scoops for multiple TV shows that are coming back, we finally know a little bit about Talia’s arc in Season 5. The website revealed that Talia might be playing a big role when it comes to the identity of the villainous Prometheus who has been terrorizing the Green Arrow (played by Stephen Amell) and his team this season.
“Among new faces, Talia al Ghul plays a “crucial part” in unraveling the Prometheus mystery.”
When Doig was cast, it was reported that she will be making her debut in the mid-season premiere titled “Who Are You?” which will focus heavily on the return of Laurel Lance (played by Katie Cassidy) as she popped up in the winter finale. The network recently released a new trailer for “Who Are You?”, the tenth episode of the new season, which reveals that the Laurel that we are seeing here isn’t the same as the one that died in Season 4.
Arrow Season 5 returns with new episodes on Wednesday, January 25 at 8/7c on The CW. Make sure to check back at Heroic Hollywood after every single episode of Season 5 for our weekly reviews.
