The Huntress Is Returning To ARROW!
by Merrill Barr on January 27, 2014
Arguably, one of the best arcs to come out of the first season of The CW’s Arrow has been the relationship between Oliver and Helena Bertinelli, a/k/a The Huntress. The dynamic between the two was a blast to watch, and when The Arrow and The Huntress would take down baddies together, it was a match made in Starling City heaven. But as all good arcs do, The Huntress eventually left Starling City, and Oliver went back to wishing for love from the one he lost, Laurel. But it seems The Huntress isn’t done with Starling City quite just yet.
According to TV Guide, everyone’s favorite Oliver Queen frenemy will return on the March 26th episode of season two, “Birds of Prey” (insert all jokes about former CW series Birds of Prey here). In the episode: Following the arrest of Helena’s father, Frank Bertinelli, The Huntress returns to seek revenge for the killing of her fiancé, but in order to do that, she must go through Oliver and his quiver, as well as Starling City’s newest vigilante, The Canary. Cool enough for you? It should be.
In speaking with TV Guide, Executive Producer Mark Guggenheim said, “We consider Jessica a member of the Arrow family, and we’re looking forward to having her back for an episode everyone will be talking about after.” Of course the executive producer would say that, but the consensus on Arrow is that it’s one of the — if not the — best comic-book shows currently running on television. The Huntress is a fantastic character for a host of reasons, badassness being the main one. There’s no doubt that any episode featuring her return will feature a lot of arrows, form-fitting costumes, and lots and lots of dead mobsters.
