Throughout its last four seasons “Arrow” has surprised us with many plot twists and changes. The last twist that left us in utter devastation was the revelation of Laurel Lance, played by Katie Cassidy’s death! It was absolutely devastating to know Laurel Lance met a grim fate at the hands of Damien Darhk, who had vowed to inflict harm on the Black Canary should Detective Lance fail to stay in line.

Katie Cassidy, 29 spoke with Entertainment Weekly after her character’s death on the show,
“The last scene I think I shot was we had to do a reshoot actually of when I actually die, when Darhk stabs the Black Canary,” Katie shared, saying she kept Black Canary’s jacket and mask as keepsakes. “That was a week after. That was the very last scene that we shot. It was so weird because I remember we had broken for lunch, we came back and I was running to set and I was putting on my jacket and gloves and they were just calling me to set to show-wrap me. I didn’t know that I was done. It was a bit of a shock. But it was good. I feel like there was no other way that I would want it to go.”
But hey Laurel, you can’t leave us just like that! As resurrection and revival of characters has become a thing on TV series now, how about a little resurrection of Laurel Lance. She remarked on the possible comeback of her character,
“As they know, I love working with them. I’m always happy to come play with them if they time-travel or what not. To me, Laurel was always such a good person and had such a good heart and was a fighter. For her to be remembered, I think her being remembered that way is definitely important to me.”
Aww Laurel! We’re definitely gonna miss you on the show. Let’s see what Arrow fans have to say about Laurel’s death.
"Angry with a side of bitter."
