Arrow Just Upended Black Siren's Precarious Status Quo

Katie Cassidy as Earth-2 Laurel Lance

SPOILER WARNING: This article contains major spoilers for "Inheritance," the latest episode of Arrow.

Black Siren's cover is blown -- and it's all Emiko Queen's fault. In "Inheritance," the latest episode of Arrow, Emiko leaked photos of Laurel Lance working with Ricardo Diaz to the press. As a result, Laurel's precarious position as the Star City District Attorney is in jeopardy, which has sent her into a spiral.

Laurel has been suspicious of Emiko ever since she debuted on the series. A former criminal herself, Laurel recognized something of herself in Emiko. However, when she threatened to out Emiko to the team, Emiko pointed out that no one would believe her because of her past. As a result, Laurel struck out to investigate Emiko on her own.

Laurel's attempt to follow Emiko resulted in an arrow to the arm. Fortunately for Laurel, it was just a graze, but that didn't go unnoticed by Oliver. When he remarked on it, she came out with her suspicions. True to his character, Oliver needed to see proof himself before he would believe it and so he followed Emiko himself. This led him to discover her partnership with Dante and her work for the Ninth Circle.

Emiko didn't take too kindly to this disruption of her plans. In retaliation, she released the damning photo to the press and then showed up at Laurel's office to gloat about it. As Laurel listened to reports that she is under investigation for murder, Emiko admitted she had done this for revenge, but may have freed Laurel from the restraints of her so-called "heroic" life.

Per the promo for "Lost Canaries," the episode airing on April 15, Laurel goes into a tailspin as a result of this. It appears she embraces her Black Siren identity once more in her devastation. As such, her tenure as Star City's DA appears to be over -- and her affiliation with Team Arrow will be shaken to its core.

Airing Mondays at 8 pm ET/PT on The CW, Arrow stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen, David Ramsey as John Diggle, Emily Bett Rickards as Felicity Smoak, Rick Gonzalez as Wild Dog, Juliana Harkavy as Black Canary, Colton Haynes as Arsenal, Kirk Acevedo as Diaz and Katie Cassidy as Black Siren.
