‘Arrow’ “Birds of Prey” Sneak Peeks: Huntress and Canary Fight It Out
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.
The first sneak peek of The CW’s take on the “Birds of Prey” sees Helena Bertinelli making a dramatic entrance to recapture her father Frank, but despite Oliver’s lack of an available costume, it seems the Huntress finds herself caught in a trap. TVGuide brings the second sneak peek of the all-new installment, as Black Canary (Caity Lotz) comes to the rescue, while Laurel seems to be holding her own with a baton, as well.
Here’s what The CW had to say of Wednesday’s “Birds of Prey”:
WHEN THE HUNTRESS MET THE CANARY — When Frank Bertinelli (guest star Jeffrey Nordling) is arrested, Oliver (Stephen Amell) knows it’s only a matter of time before his daughter, Helena, AKA The Huntress (guest star Jessica De Gouw), returns to town.
To make matters worse, Laurel (Katie Cassidy) is picked to try Frank’s case, putting her right in the path of Helena. Oliver tells Sara (Caity Lotz) he will handle his ex-girlfriend, but when Helena takes hostages at the courthouse, including Laurel, the Canary will stop at nothing to save her sister. When The Huntress and Canary meet, an epic battle begins.
Meanwhile, Roy (Colton Haynes) realizes he needs to keep Thea (Willa Holland) safe, but doesn’t like the way he is forced to go about it.
We’ve yet to hear any kind of formal announcement on NBC’s ‘Dracula,’ leading us to wonder if the Huntress could maintain more of a presence in the confirmed third season of The CW’s DC drama hit, but for now at least the “Birds of Prey” look to provide another all-out DC character brawl to satisfy fans.
