Laurel Coming Back From The Dead? “Simply No”

stop-blaming-arrow-s-olicity-for-the-shortcomings-of-laurel-lance-olicity-not-to-blame-398180

For those of you hoping that we might actually see the return of the Black Canary at some point this season or next, Stephen Amell may have just put a little dent in those hopes. In an interview with Larry King on ora.tv, Stephen is asked point blank if Laurel is coming back from the dead and he says “no”. Larry being the masterful interviewer he is, asks one more time for anyone that didn’t hear.

Larry King: “Simply no?”

Stephen Amell: “Simply no”.

Now if you’re hopeful like me that she could be making a comeback at some point, take a look at Stephen’s face when he says “simply no”. That face looks a little suspect to me. He’s also asked if he knows the words that Laurel says to him before her death and here’s what he had to say:

I do know what they were, but it’s going to remain a secret because much like Greg [Berlanti] says, “We like to surprise the viewers.”

The next episode of ‘Arrow’, “Monument Point”, can be seen next Wednesday at 8/7c on the CW.

“When Team Arrow learns what Damien Darhk’s next move is, Felicity realizes she needs to ask her father, Noah Kuttler, for help. Noah and Oliver have a heart to heart talk that leaves Oliver rattled.”

  • sorry to ask but was anybody actually wanting her to come back?

    • shani

      Yeah, tons of people, like me for example.
      I wouldn’t mind if Thea would die or maybe even Felicity (never was a hater of hers but lately she feels a bit expendable and annoying).
      But Laurel Lance/Katie Cassidy was the only character/actress that actually showed a lot of progress, storywise and regarding her fighting scenes.
      Besides, there is no Green Arrow without the Black Canary. Those two belong together, always have been.

  • Steve Steve

    She was a big part of why I didn’t finish season one. She was a big reason for my disinterest in seasons three and up. Please leave her character dead.

  • henryducard

    Might be like the other tv properties. She may be showing up in a batman film or something soon.

    • Chris W

      You actually think she could possibly be Black Canary in the movie universe?

      • henryducard

        No they pulled deadshot out because deadshot is in suicide squad. That actress isn’t good enough to be in the films along side film actors but dc keeps pulling tv characters out that they are going to put in film.

        • shani

          Ehm, not really. They pulled out Deadshot and Amanda Waller, but that’s it. They do not “keep” pulling TV characters out that they are going to use for movies, they only did it twice.
          And yes, it’s a shame, because they are separate universes and therefore it shouldn’t be an issue to have different versions of the same character.

          • henryducard

            Oh my bad. I’m sorry if I hurt your feelings.

          • shani

            Haha, no worry. :)
            If that had hurt my feelings I would have to be a really fragile person. Feel free to express your opinion mate. :)

  • Chris W

    I hope Felicity joins her. Outside of the whole cast of Supergirl, those are probably the worst characters in all of comic book television.

  • Ed González

    In the comics Black Canary was from Earth 2.

    • shani

      Nope, that was the old Golden Age Black Canary that only existed until 1983.

      • Ed González

        You are right, but it provides a way to bring her back, that is still canon.

        • shani

          Haha you’re right. :)
          I mean, apart from Black Siren, of course.

    Btw, the link in the article is wrong, it heads to interviews from 2013.
    This is the correct link:

    I don’t want to read too much into it but Amell barely can keep it together and keeps grinning when he says “simply no”. I really hope they bring her back!
