We all knew at some point that Laurel would be taking over and donning the Black Canary getup, we just didn’t know when. At the end of season 2, Sara left Starling City to go back to the League of Assassins, but not before giving Laurel her leather jacket. That was the first sign. The second was at the beginning of season 3, when Sara was murdered and left Laurel filled with anger and on a mission to avenge her sister’s death. This officially put her on the path to becoming the Black Canary. Oh, and if you haven’t noticed, she’s also be lightening her hair each episode.
The CW has released some official photos from episode 10 titled “Left Behind.” Katie Cassidy will suit up sometime in January 2015 when the show returns from the holiday hiatus.
The midseason finale airs Wednesday, Dec. 10 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
