“Arrow” has yet to properly introduce Ra’s al Ghul’s daughter Talia, even though she technically made her debut in the first season of “DC's Legends of Tomorrow." However, a new synopsis for an upcoming episode of “Arrow” shows she’ll jump head first into the series, if perhaps not in the way fans expect.
Titled “Second Chances," the Feb. 1 episode will see Oliver Queen team up with Talia in flashbacks in an effort to defeat Russian government strongman Kovar.
TALIA AL GHUL TAKES OLIVER UNDER HER WING — In his quest to take down Kovar, Oliver (Stephen Amell) gets help from a surprising source – Talia al Ghul (guest star Lexa Doig). However, when she reveals what she wants from him in exchange, Oliver isn’t sure he can accept her help. Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) attempts to hack the NSA to help free Diggle (David Ramsey) but when her online efforts are flagged, she faces off against an unknown adversary. Meanwhile, Curtis (Echo Kellum) tells the team about a female vigilante, Tina Boland (guest star Juliana Harkavay), he uncovered online who has been wreaking havoc all over the country.
It will be interesting to see how the show tackles Oliver becoming involved with Talia, particularly considering he didn’t seem to know much about the League of Assassins before the return of Sara Lance. Although Talia will only be around (for now) in flashback form, "Arrow" is invested in her character, so don’t be surprised to see her show up in the present as well.
Returning Wednesday, Jan. 25, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW, “Arrow’ stars Stephen Amell, Emily Bett Rickards, David Ramsey, Willa Holland, Paul Blackthorne and Echo Callum.
