Huntress Returns to 'Arrow'

And the episode is called "Birds of Prey." GASP!

Arrow fans, our sister site, TV Guide, has landed a pretty neat exclusive. Jessica de Gouw is going to reprise her role as Huntress, but what's particularly exciting is the episode is called "Birds of Prey." Basically, Huntress is still seeking revenge and this brings her back to Starling City. Helena Bertinelli wants to take down her father, Frank Bertinelli, but two things are standing in her way: Arrow and Canary!

No Caption Provided

"Birds of Prey" will air March 26. As always, it'll be on the CW at 8/7c. Are you going to tune in, Viners?

Huntress needs to pay for killing those U.S. Marshals.

@vitality: @arturocalakayvee: Give her character time to develop. I mean, she has been around since early second season. But to be fair, we've seen more of island Sarah than we have black canary Sarah. Which it looks like we're going to be seeing more of. So again, lets just give it time. Oliver didn't really start off as much of a green arrow at first either.

@arturocalakayvee: Dude the actress that plays Sarah is so freakin hot. She makes laurel look like Susan Boyle.

I think she is good looking. However, I just don't think she is right for the role. She doesn't have that believable look...or "aura"...or whatever you want to call it...for someone as badass as Canary.

I think you hit the nail on the head on why I'm so turned off on her. She doesn't have the Black Canary feel therefore I just can't see her in a positive light causing it to mask her looks.

BTW... speaking of CW and DC shows... did Comicvine completely miss the news that Professor Zoom and Killer Frost have been cast for the Flash TV show?

I seem to have the reverse problem of most people, when I heard the Huntress was going to be in "Arrow" I was psyched but every episode leading up to her appearance had me face-palming. Almost every other character convinced me the show wasn't worth watching before she even came on. This is just so dull. Cable is where it's at.

Is it a plank? is it a tree? No, it's Arrow...

Really, I understand this show is popular among people who don't necessarily read comics... but comic(green arrow) fans should despise this thrash, as they rape every character with bad actors/writing

To each their own I guess.

This show actually made me a fan of Green Arrow.

as long as they dont include Catwoman as a member of the BoP, they really can not F this up.

As for Huntress in S1, seems to me they got her more correct than Canary has been done so far. However, I really do NOT like the idea of heroes living in the same city. So Canry & Huntress both should not be there.

@allstarsuperman: Could be a factor. I just think the character sucks. Though she's much better than Sarah. I 100% prefer the original actress over this new one.

@allstarsuperman: There's something about Laurel that I just can't get onboard with. I acknowledge that she is beautiful but I just don't like her that much.

@arturocalakayvee: laurel and felicity always switch on my list but its usually the way I have it.

@allstarsuperman: Ah I can't believe I forgot Felicity. She is by far the most gorgeous on the show in my opinion followed by Speedy, and maybe Laurel or Huntress. That's my top 3ish.

@arturocalakayvee: Sarah is a butt. My order:

Laurel

Felicity

Speedy

Diggles old girlfriend brother thing

Business lady

Shadow

Moriva the mom

Sarah

Huntress

If there's more i forgot

@allstarsuperman: I think she's one of the more attractive ones. Way more than Sarah, Laurel goes up and down for me, Moira isn't TOO bad…she's just mature, Speedy is gorgeous though.

Hopefully she uses her crossbow though, she doesn't fit well carrying guns. I'm glad they have Bertinelli and not Wayne as Huntress as well, I miss Bertinelli a lot in the comics.

I actually just starting watching Arrow this weekend with my wife (it came highly recommended from some peers here). I must admit we really liked it. Havent gotten to any of season 2 yet, hoping its good as I am a fan of Black Canary.

Huntress is the worst thing about Arrow. The blame is not on the actress, it's on the inept writing. Even if they try to fix her character now, there is no undoing the damage done in season one. They should have left her in limbo where she belongs.

And the saddest part about that is that Huntress is actually an awesome character in pretty much any other version.

I hated the Huntress episodes and I really hope this one isn't as bad. Jessica de Gouw was unconvincing and bland as an actress in those episodes. Maybe having Black Canary there will distract me from Huntress but Idk. I also think their portrayal of Huntress has been incredibly one dimensional. She is a character I thought had a lot of potential within the Arrow-verse but they really didn't deliver.

if they didn't have Jessica de Gouw use her terrible American accent, her acting would be waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better. I actually like the character just the acting is soooo bad.

Oh and this would be an awesome opportunity to introduce the Question into the show

^ This 1000x times yes.

The huntress episodes were the weakest of the series thus far. Maybe they need a more athletic actress who has a little more dynamic range. Even though they didn't recast huntress-I would like to see a better performance or actress. If delivered well this could be a great episode. Sarah as Canary I thought was excellent this season (Plz don't make Laurel-Canary. just keep sarah.)
