This is it, Bex fans!
Arrow Season 2 is underway, and episode 3 airs this week:
8-9 p.m. ET
The CW Network
That’s right, comic-book fans, Bex is going primetime, on a major network, and it’s even (almost) a family show! Ok, so lots of people get shot by arrows, but they’re BAD guys! Pow! Zam! Kaboom!
AND… in case you’ve missed episodes 1 and 2 of this action-packed season, here is a recap written by our friend and Wall Street Journal Arts & Entertainment columnist, Jason Evans.
Frankly, Jason didn’t love episode 2 because he found the plot a little weak. I’m confident that it will improve as “Canary” and “Sin” enter the scene in episode 3. And besides — plot, Jason? Is a scintillating plot-line really what brings you back to Arrow each week? ;-)
Personally, I’m all about the awkward eccentricities of Felicity (whom we learn in episode 2 is, not surprisingly, an MIT grad), the tortured relationship wisdom of Diggle, and…well, yeah, the eye candy.
So catch up on the adventures of Oliver Queen and crew, and check out Bex’s second TV debut, this time as a recurring Guest Star as Sin on Arrow.
Here’s a little preview of what’s in store for us in Episode 3, including a fabulous little ditty about our favorite “starlet,” Bex TK:
Escaped convict Barton Mathis (guest star Michael Eklund) grabs Felicity, and Roy crosses paths with a plucky gal dubbed Sin (The Killing‘s Bex Taylor-Klaus). “If the Arrow has Roy, then Black Canary (to be played by Caity Lotz) has Sin,” is how Kreisberg described the new character during TVLine’s fall preview Q&A.
Casting Taylor-Klaus was a win for Kreisberg, who says that he and his wife were huge fans of the starlet’s work as The Killing‘s Bullet. “Truth be told, we were thinking of killing off [Sin] quickly,” he shared. “But now that we have Bex, we’re keeping her around.” http://tvline.com/2013/10/05/arrow-season-2-photos-laurel-captures-arrow/#!7/brokendolls/
