Arrow officially returned last night as the mid-season premiere dealt with the return of Laurel Lance who turned out to be the Earth-2 version, the Black Siren. With Oliver Queen now focused on honoring the promise he made to his Laurel, the search for the next Black Canary has begun and this week’s episode gave us a pretty good idea of who that will be.
The CW released an extended trailer for the eleventh episode titled “Second Chances” as it gives us a closer look at the new character of Tina Boland who will be played by Juliana Harkavay. Tina made her debut at the end of “Who Are You?” where she took down two men with a sonic scream and the new trailer gave us more glimpses of her power.
