A fan favorite will be returning for at least one episode on Arrow this year! Variety reports that Katrina Law aka Nyssa Al Ghul will be paying Star City a visit!
Executive producers Wendy Mericle and Marc Guggenheim describe her return:
“In an unforgettable episode that will change ‘Arrow’ forever, Katrina Law returns as the Daughter of the Demon, Nyssa Al Ghul. Nyssa comes to Star City to warn of an impending danger that will threaten everything we know and love.”
Law’s Nyssa Al Ghul first appeared midway through Season 2 of Arrow. Since then she’s been in a number of episodes throughout the series run. The last time we saw her was during Season Five’s finale where we saw her form an alliance with Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) and Slade Wilson (Manu Bennet). The unlikely alliance was formed to save Oliver’s friends and family from the grips of the villainous Adrian Chase (Josh Segarra).
Katrina Law’s Nyssa Al Ghull will appear in episode 16 of Season 6. It will be titled “The Thanatos Guild.” As for the storyline behind the return, we don’t know yet. But I bet it will be something to remember.
Nyssa isn’t the only character making a return to Star City. Another fan favorite Colton Haynes, who plays Roy Harper/Arsenal, is coming back for a short story arc. Could his arc be related to Katrina Law’s return? That we don’t know. But with Arrow’s track record of bringing back actors and characters, I’m sure this won’t be the last time they pay a visit.
Are you excited to see Katrina Law/Nyssa Al Ghul make her way back to Star City and Arrow? What do you think her role will be in the “The Thanatos Guild” episode?
