Talia al-Ghul Has Connection with Prometheus on Arrow
Prometheus has puzzled Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) and viewers since the start of Arrow’s fifth season. The only thing that will connect with this mysterious adversary is another enemy in the form of Talia al-Ghul, who will be a part of the second half of Arrow’s new season.
Talking with TVLine, EP Wendy Mericle revealed that Talia al-Ghul will be a part of the puzzle surrounding Prometheus. We last saw Talia in the debut season of Legends of Tomorrow as a child. When we see her on The CW mothership series, she will be a full-grown adult played by Lexa Doig. Mericle said she would play a “crucial part” in finding out who Prometheus is. Talia has been known in the comics for being the daughter of Ra’s al-Ghul, who played the Big Bad on season three of Arrow. She’s also the half sister of Nyssa, so wit will be interesting to see how she fares well with Team Arrow.
The producer also spoke about the other big mystery surrounding Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy). Mericle explained that her reappearance “is a very welcome surprise… But there will be… whatever the reverse of a ‘silver lining’ is… when [Oliver] finds out what’s really going on. It will have a lot of emotional resonance, particularly for him and Felicity.” Based on the promo we saw last week, this may very well be the Black Siren version of Laurel, the metahuman Earth-2 counterpart from The Flash.
