'Arrow': First Look at Katie Cassidy as Black Canary
The time has finally come: Black Canary is about to make her debut.
The CW has released the first official image of Katie Cassidy (aka Laurel) in full costume from episode 10 of season three, titled "Left Behind" — and it's about damn time. After Sara's violent death in the premiere, Laurel embarked on a quest to become someone else, teaming with Ted Grant (J.R. Ramirez) to help get her into fighting shape.
"I think Laurel has earned it. She's gone through really, really hard times, and she will dig deep and rise above," Cassidy told The Hollywood Reporter in October.
Check out the images below.
Arrow airs 8 p.m. Wednesdays on The CW.
