Caity Lotz returning to Arrow for Birds of Prey-inspired episode
Arrow‘s original canary is coming home (at least for an episode).
EW has confirmed that Legends of Tomorrow star Caity Lotz — who originally played Sara Lance/Black Canary on the show before becoming Legends‘ White Canary — will appear in season 7’s 18th episode “Lost Canary.” As of right now, it’s unclear how involved Lotz will be in the episode; however, TVLine reports that the hour is inspired by the Birds of Prey, DC Comics’ female vigilante team, and will also involve Black Siren/Earth-2 Laurel (Katie Cassidy Rodgers). (It’s worth noting that this should not be confused with the Arrow season 2 episode “Birds of Prey.”)
Cassidy Rodgers shared a behind scenes photo Thursday featuring herself, Lotz, and a masked Juliana Harkavy, who plays Dinah Drake/the current Black Canary. “Girls rule #round2,” she captioned the team-up photo.
Obviously, this won’t be Lotz’s first appearance on Arrow this year. She made a very brief cameo in the superhero drama’s documentary-like 150th episode. Before that, she appeared in the season 6 finale, which saw Sara meet her sister’s Earth-2 doppelgänger when she returned to see her father Quentin (Paul Blackthorne) before he died.
Arrow airs Mondays at 8 p.m., DC’s Legends of Tomorrow returns April 1 on The CW.
