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?

I'm super excited about this. I thought De Gouw as The Huntress was one of the best things in Season 1. I love her acting, I love the character. This is totally a win-win for me.

That's pretty exciting. I wasn't the biggest fan of Huntress in the first season. Here's hoping that they improve the character when they bring her back.

...And more importantly, Sara is coming back to Starling! Excellent news!

I like where this is going, but hopefully the Huntress character will be improved a bit more.

Only watched the first season, but she was by far the worst thing about this series thus far. Terrible actress and poorly written and realized. Hopefull they will improve her character, but I kinda just want her to die/dissapear.

Birds of Prey was my Gasp. Let hope Huntress had some changes like Oliver and now is trying to be a better character.

Only two ways this can go: Make her better or kill her off. I'm good either way.

The only thing objectively worse than her in the first season was Laurel, but I think that's only because there was more of her. Not looking forward to this. Here's hoping Sarah kicks her ass.

Know what would be awesome? Huntress kills Laurel, so Canary kills Huntress. And Arrow never needs to talk about them again.

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

@dslboy: The second season is much better than the first. The first was absolutely abysmal in almost every way (Felicity, Diggle, and Slade being the bright spots), and the second season, while not necessarily great or deep or an entirely accurate depiction of the comics like many adaptations, is at the very least fun.

@slamadams: I actually think the second season of Arrow was better than all of 2013's comic book movies (not that it was really hard to do that).

Oh and I'm hoping we get to see some SS (Sarah/Slade) interaction too.... That would be awesome, especially if they describe how they got away from each other.

^ 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.)

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.

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.

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.

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.
