‘Arrow’ season 2 lets loose its seventeenth episode of the year with “Birds of Prey,” as Helena "The Huntress" Bertinelli (Jessica de Gouw) returns to Starling City seeking vengeance against her father, taking Laurel hostage, while Roy wrestles with a difficult decision regarding Thea.
Last week's ‘Arrow’ installment “Suicide Squad” saw Diggle reluctantly leading the team of Deadshot (Michael Rowe), Bronze Tiger (Michael Jai White) and Shrapnel (Sean Maher) on an overseas mission, while Oliver tried in vain to find Slade in Starling City, so what does the seventeenth episode of ‘Arrow’ season 2 bring? Do the famous DC characters ally like the comics, or bring more death and destruction for the final episodes of the season?
Read on for your in-depth recap of everything you need to know about ‘Arrow’ season 2, episode 17, “Birds of Prey!”
Where last week's exciting 'Arrow' premiere brought the "Suicide Squad" to life, this week's latest season 2 installment will afford similar treatment to the deadly "Birds of Prey," as Jessica de Gouw's Huntress returns to Starling City in search of even more vengeance. We've got the first two clips from the hour, and it seems the titular "Birds" don't get along as well as the comics might lead us to believe.
Where this past week's 'Arrow' installment "Suicide Squad" brought in the famous DC Comics team, next week's all-new episode will similarly reference comic mythology with "Birds of Prey." Helena Bertinelli (Jessica de Gouw) returns to Starling City once again in search of vengeance, only to find Oliver has a Canary on his side, in the full set of photos from next week's episode.
The CW's 'Arrow' scored major points with DC fans by introducing Jessica de Gouw's Huntress so early into its run, even if her second appearance largely fizzled. De Gouw has been busy with NBC's 'Dracula' of late, but has now officially been set to return in 'Arrow' season 2, heading up an episode that nods to some major DC mythology! Will the third time end up the charm for 'Arrow''s incarnation of Helena Bertinelli?
A few weeks ago 'Arrow' left us on what might have been its best episode to date, as Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) unknowingly rescued his mortal enemy from certain death, and inadvertently exposed his secret identity to his closest friend for "Dead to Rights." The stakes will get even higher when "The Huntress Returns" on March 20, but you might not know it from the recent photos. Get an in-depth preview of the newest 'Arrow' inside!
NBC's been rather quiet on the front of its upcoming straight-to-series adaptation 'Dracula,' little known other than 'The Tudors' star Jonothan Rhys-Meyers would take the title role for a series helmed by 'Carnivale' creator Dan Knauf. Now, new reports have emerged that recent (and future) 'Arrow' guest star Jessica De Gouw has joined the production in the role of the series' female lead Mina, but why have 'Dracula' details been in the crypt for so long?
Last year during 'Arrow's inagural run, DC comics fans were treated to one of the more comic-friendly characters yet as The CW's Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) teamed up with his first fellow vigilante hero The Huntress, aka Helena Bertinelli (Jessica De Gouw). Now, as 'Arrow' heads into its 2013 premiere with this Wednesday's "Burned," kicking off a slew of new DC characters to hit Starling City, we've learned that The Huntress will make her mark once more! Find out when Helena Bertinelli returns to 'Arrow' inside!
Apart from an enthralling premise and tightly crafted action sequences, one of our favorite aspects of The CW's Green Arrow adaptation 'Arrow' lies in seeing the multitude of DC characters adapted for the small screen. In particular, an upcoming episode will see the introduction of our first fellow DC hero (ish), Jessica De Gouw's The Huntress! Set to appear in two upcoming episodes, how would you like to see the first look at the character in action?
