Oliver and Team Arrow received a gut punch when Damian Darhk killed Laurel Lance, something not made any easier by the appearance of her Earth-Two alter ego Black Siren.
While she isn't the hero fans have come to know, that doesn't mean redemption won't be a pivotal element to the character in season 6. Arrow co-showrunner teased as much to TV Line, and feels that regardless of if that happens, Black Siren will be one to watch.
"I don't know if there's any question about whether or not the [idea] of redemption will come up; it has to. Her father is there. Oliver is there. Everyone is going to be asking whether or not it's possible to find a little piece of Laurel, the Laurel Lance they knew and loved, in there somewhere." That said, "I think she's interesting as a [villain]," Mericle asserted. "Black Siren is a badass."
Black Siren was involved in the climatic fight at the end of season 5, and appears to have a significant role in season 6. She won't be alone either, as Oliver's foe turned ally Deathstroke will also have a substantial part this season, and fans will be happy to have both of them back in the fold.
You can find the description for Arrow below.
After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the North China Sea. He returned home to Star City, bent on righting the wrongs done by his family and fighting injustice. As the Green Arrow, he protects his city with the help of former soldier John Diggle (David Ramsey),computer-science expert Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards), his vigilante-trained sister Thea Queen (Willa Holland), Deputy Mayor Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne), brilliant inventor Curtis Holt (Echo Kellum), and his new recruits, street-savvy Rene Ramirez (Rick Gonzalez) and meta-human Dinah Drake (Juliana Harkavy).
Oliver has finally solidified and strengthened his crime-fighting team only to have it threatened when unexpected enemies from his past return to Star City, forcing Oliver to rethink his relationship with each member of his "family".
