Another character from “The Flash” is headed “Arrow,” and this time it’s someone not so friendly.
Emily Kinney will reprise her role as Brie Larvin, better known to “The Flash” fans as The Bug Eyed Bandit. Kinney made her first debut on “The Flash” Season 1 in a crossover episode containing both Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards) and Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh).
Brie and Felicity have a bit of a history, both being tech geniuses on opposite sides of the superhero game. Felicity dubbed Brie her nemesis on “The Flash,” and their rivalry will carry over to Star City when Brie shows up in the newest episode, “Broken Hearts,” for revenge after breaking out of prison.
When she demands Felicity hand over the bio-chip that allowed her to walk again in exchange for the lives of several hostages, Oliver (Stephen Amell) will turn to a surprising ally for help.
Who could this “surprising ally” be? You can never really rule out a surprise crossover when it comes to “The Flash” and “Arrow,” so it could be Barry (Grant Gustin) himself. Or maybe Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman) will attempt to mend fences by saving Thea, who happens to be one of the hostages?
“Arrow” returns Wednesday, March 23rd at 8 p.m. ET/PT on the CW
