Madison McLaughlin will reprise her role as Evelyn Sharp in Arrow Season 5, becoming the archer vigilante called Artemis. Sharp was last seen in the Season 4 episode "Canary Cry," in which she impersonated Black Canary to seek revenge for her parents' deaths on Damien and Ruvé Darhk.
According to Variety. McClaughlin will make her Season 5 debut in the season's second episode and her arc will play out over multiple episodes as she forges her new heroic identity.
Artemis is a character featured in the Young Justice animated series who was loosely based on the Young Justice comic book character Arrowette. The daughter of villains Sportsmaster and Tigress, she became Green Arrow's sidekick after Roy Harper, Speedy, went solo. Arrow may be setting her on a similar path, setting Green Arrow, Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell), up to be the mentor and role model that leads Artemis onto a more noble path after her morally questionable actions in Season 4.
Another potentially interesting twist is that the Artemis of Young Justice entered a romantic relationship with the team's Kid Flash, Wally West. Wally is played by Keiynan Lonsdale on The Flash, and the two shows will cross over once again next season. It will be interesting to see if The CW showrunners decide to bring the same romantic sparks from the animated series into the live action television universe.
Fans will have to wait a few more months to find out. The Arrow Season 5 premiere will air Wednesday, Oct. 5 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
