It’s crazy to think that Arrow is almost over. Crisis On Infinite Earths concludes tonight, and that means the focus turns to a Post Crisis world. For Star City, that means a return to 2040 and Mia taking up the mantle of the Green Arrow. Next week, episode nine of Season 8 will be the soft pilot for Green Arrow & The Canaries. Now we finally have a first look, as well as a synopsis.
You see the photo above with Katie Cassidy, Katherine McNamara and Juliana Harkavy suited up. Mia looks right at home in full Green Arrow gear! Now let’s look at the synopsis: “STAR CITY 2040 — It’s the year 2040 in Star City and Mia Queen (Katherine McNamara) has everything she could have ever wanted. However, when Laurel (Katie Cassidy) and Dinah (Juliana Harkavy) suddenly show up in her life again, things take a shocking turn and her perfect world is upended. Laurel and Dinah are tracking a kidnapping victim with direct ties to Mia and they need her help. Knowing it will change everything, Mia can’t help but be a hero and she, Laurel and Dinah suit up once again to save the city. Tara Miele directed the episode written by Beth Schwartz & Marc Guggenheim & Jill Blankenship & Oscar Balderrama”
Who might that victim be exactly? Here is another photo that might help illuminate that.

That mystery woman is Bianca Bertinelli, played by Raigan Harris. The name Bertinelli should be VERY familiar to Arrow fans. It will be interesting to see how she connects to all of this. Either way, I couldn’t be more excited for this new chapter.
Green Arrow & The Canaries airs Tuesday, January 21st at 8pm ET on The CW.
