Did you think that the League of Assassins had been erased from “Arrow” for good? Think again.
Even though Ra’s al Ghul is gone, and Malcolm Merlyn is no longer alive (as far as we know) it appears that the League still exists to some extent.
TV Line is reporting that “Helix” star Kyra Zagorsky has joined the cast of “Arrow” as a character named Athena who is a former League of Assassins member.
According to the report, Athena’s mission is to maintain the legacy of her fallen commander, Malcolm Merlyn.
Athena bears a scar across her face, and sees anyone who was once associated with Malcolm Merlyn as a threat.
It’s interesting to note that it was recently confirmed Katrina Law will be reprising her role as Nyssa al Ghul, and Nyssa will be returning to Star City to, “warn of an impending danger that will threaten everything we know and love.”
Could Athena be that danger?
“Arrow” will air on Thursday this week with “The Devil’s Favorite Trick.”
