Arrow returns January 14th with a brand new episode, titled "Blast Radius". However, that will be the 10th episode of Season 2. However, TV|Line is looking ahead to episode 14 in their spoiler column. The site reports:

Given all that has transpired since she last visited – e.g. Sara’s super-secret “resurrection,” Laurel’s downward spiral – Alex Kingston’s encore as Dinah Lance promises to be a doozy. “Episode 14 is probably the most Brothers & Sisters episode we’ve done,” showrunner Andrew Kreisberg says, with a nod to fellow EP Greg Berlanti’s ABC drama. “Everyone in the Lance family has big secrets and it’s all going to get blown wide open, but in a good way.”


The bit about every member of the Lance family having secrets is very intriguing. We can guess what secret Sara (Caity Lotz) carries. I'm sure the fact that she's alive will be a shock to Laurel (Katie Cassidy) and Dinah. And the fact that (former) Det. Lance (Paul Blackthorne) knew she was alive is probably his secret. But what secret does Laurel carry? Perhaps the most intriguing secret revealed will belong to Dinah Drake? In the comics, Dinah Drake was the original Black Canary who passed down her costume to her daughter Laurel. Obviously the show is tweaking that mythology but perhaps she'll be able to pass down some other aspect of the Black Canary persona? The previous executive producer reveal that Arrow (Stephen Amell) wasn't the first superhero/ vigillante has me thinking a legacy character like Dinah will be the avenue used to explore an earlier era of costumed adventurers. Perhaps Dinah works for Amanda Waller's (Cynthia Addai-Robinson) A.R.G.U.S.? Or maybe she has a connection to Ted Grant a.k.a. Wildcat, the DC superhero who trained and mentored the second-generation Black Canary.


Arrow returns from mid-season hiatus on January 15th.

"After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the Pacific. When he returns home to Starling City, his devoted mother Moira, much-beloved sister Thea, and best friend Tommy welcome him home, but they sense Oliver has been changed by his ordeal on the island. While Oliver hides the truth about the man he’s become, he desperately wants to make amends for the actions he took as the boy he was. Most particularly, he seeks reconciliation with his former girlfriend, Laurel Lance. As Oliver reconnects with those closest to him, he secretly creates the persona of Arrow – a vigilante – to right the wrongs of his family, fight the ills of society, and restore Starling City to its former glory. By day, Oliver plays the role of a wealthy, carefree and careless philanderer he used to be – flanked by his devoted chauffeur/bodyguard, John Diggle – while carefully concealing the secret identity he turns to under cover of darkness. However, Laurel’s father, Detective Quentin Lance, is determined to arrest the vigilante operating in his city. Meanwhile, Oliver’s own mother, Moira, knows much more about the deadly shipwreck than she has let on – and is more ruthless than he could ever imagine."

Great, more crap from Laurel.

Justice Society ala Smallville perhaps?

Do NOT kill off Sara! Seriously, kill the rest of the Lance family for all I care, but damn, not her.

They threw that alcoholism/pill-popping thing in the bushes real quick. Even the writers are bored with Laurel.
patrat18 - 12/20/2013, 2:32 AM
Not a bad episode yet. I'm in.
DarkArts - 12/20/2013, 2:36 AM
Secrets: Officer Lance has turned gay.
Laurel has done porn with Mandingo.
Sarah had Oliver's baby on the Island.
Dinah is dating a 19 year old boy.

^ What this guy said.
AlSimmons - 12/20/2013, 3:14 AM
I bet it's that Laurel paid off that one person to say she was the one in Mrs. Lance's picture.
Space - 12/20/2013, 3:20 AM
I don't care about them except for Sara.
DrunkenPirateNukem - 12/20/2013, 4:12 AM
Just kill laurel and keep sara as Black Canary she is good...laurel looks like a crack addict
GliderMan - 12/20/2013, 4:40 AM
Skye got half naked on AOS, why can't Laurel?
DEVLIN712 - 12/20/2013, 4:41 AM
Don't kill Caity Lots! Sure she can't act all that well but Laurel?!? As Black Canary? Who gives a shit about what it says in the comics, I do not want Laurel to be anymore than a side character with nothing more than 5 mins screen time per episode
yonny616 - 12/20/2013, 5:22 AM
They're going to kill Sara. It's just her destiny. Also I don't remember Laurel being a pill popper, she had a alcholism problem, but that storyline won't go anywhere if she has like 2 minutes of screen time.
MarvelousAgentX - 12/20/2013, 5:35 AM
They can kill off Laurel, Thea and Moira. Leave Sara as the Black Canary and then give Smoake more time and flesh out her character more.
Vish617 - 12/20/2013, 6:13 AM
@DarkArts
LOL!
Vish617 - 12/20/2013, 6:14 AM
The only bad thing about this show is Laurel!
Vish617 - 12/20/2013, 6:19 AM
Wonder if the writers connect Dinah Drake to Tim Drake? Maybe that's her secret?? She's a dang hussy! And had a kid with someone, called him Tim, she'll be killed off, Tim gets abandoned, etc...?

I know they're not related but maybe the writers will change that to make that connection??
Arrowhead77 - 12/20/2013, 6:37 AM
Why all the Laurel hate?? Have some patience, fanboys! Its called a character arc....I'm sure people will love her before the end.
thalidomide - 12/20/2013, 6:43 AM
Can't wait, this show rocks!!
ComicFan523 - 12/20/2013, 6:46 AM
I think Laurel has a place on the show, but not as Black Canary. Keep Sara as Black Canary and have Laurel stay where she is. Frankly, Laurel hasn't really had many interesting storylines and is pretty much the dullest character on the show right now. I think if they killed off Sara and then made Laurel Black Canary it would be pretty unrealistic and bordering on stupid. Sara had all these years of training with the League of Assassins, unless they do a time jump five years into the future, Laurel showing up as Black Canary seems ridiculous.
nickh0801 - 12/20/2013, 6:47 AM
I still like Laurel over Sarah and always will. Sarah needs to die SOON!!!
BatmanRobinNightwing - 12/20/2013, 7:10 AM
FK this midseason break, i hate it. The wait is killing me. As @ Arrowhead said everyone needs to chill with all the laurel hate. She just needs to be developed more as this season goes. The producers have stated she plays a big part in this season so just wait till the break is over and im sure the rest of the season we will see some more development with her. Also the producers said on twitter that she is NOT over her drug problem yet so we'll see where this leads too. Anyway cant wait for Jan 15th for the new episodes.


PS connect this to the DC movieverse

Please kill off Laurel, she can't act at all.
nickh0801 - 12/20/2013, 8:52 AM
Laurel still has to go on some dates with Sebastian Blood. Right now, she merely looks like an extra, but soon her story line will pick back up and Sarah will be long forgotten! Love me some Laurel(Katie Cassidy) ;)
GAThrawnIGF - 12/20/2013, 9:01 AM
I love the theory that Dinah is Tim's slutty mother who abandoned him. It opens up the possibility of Robin without using the iconic Robin and opens up the possibility of Batman existing off-screen.
Bl00dwerk - 12/20/2013, 10:03 AM
Love this show. Gets better every week...
HughJasol - 12/20/2013, 11:06 AM
However, I love this show! However, I can't wait for January 15. However.
CaptainPresley - 12/20/2013, 11:28 AM
Sheesh! Why all the hate for Laurel? I like her. Have since episode 1. She is the hottest babe on the show!
abw2 - 12/20/2013, 12:20 PM

I'm, more or less, with CaptainPresley on this one - I don't know if I would call Laurel the hottest one on this show, but I certainly have something of a liking for the character/actress - Anyway, to each his/her own I guess - Bring on the rest of season two please… *cool*/P :)

JillyMcBeam - 12/20/2013, 1:29 PM
Laurel will come around. I think you have to break her down before building her into the Canary which will eventually happen. As much as people cry Olicity, it won't last forever. I'm calling it, that relationship will get Felicity killed.
SimpleeComplex - 12/20/2013, 2:31 PM
Lol i see other people share my disdain for Laurel. She is such a dislikeable character. She is not hot at all, I never got why Ollie & Tommy were going nuts for her. She's got nothing on Felicity now that's a hotty! She's got a geeky sexy cool going on. And when she wears those miniskirts it gets even better. But her & Ollie ever getin together would ruin the team dynamic. So yay for Felicty! nay for Laurel booo! Maybe her secret is she's ebing targeted for a hit and bang she gets killed.
DCeddie - 12/20/2013, 4:47 PM
So episode 14 is some "Days of Our Lives" crap?...likely to be real boring...hope I'm wrong...
RodimusPryme - 12/20/2013, 11:19 PM
Is anyone else incredibly sick of the flashbacks?
