The team will meet a new female vigilante in Arrow season 5 episode 11. Episode 11 titled Second Chances will feature Talia al Ghul, a popular comic book character. The flashbacks revealed that Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) trained with Talia al Ghul in the past.
‘Arrow’ Season 5 ‘Second Chances’ Will Reveal Talia al Ghul and Oliver’s Connection
Talia al Ghul (Lexa Doig) appeared in the final minutes of episode 10 entitled Who Are You? In accordance with ComicBook, a flashback scene showed the connection between Talia and Oliver. Ra’s al Ghul’s child and Nyssa al Ghul’s half-sister successfully saved Oliver Queen from Bratva Pakhan Ishmael Gregor (David Meunier).
When the League of Assassins was first presented, the series never fully discussed how Oliver knew a lot about the group. Season 5 will expose the full story, including Oliver’s training with Talia. Some of the flashbacks showed how Talia tracked Oliver down in Russia. They will reveal Talia’s whereabouts when Oliver took control of the League.
Green Arrow Is not Keen to Accept Talia al Ghul’s Aid
TV Guide revealed that in Oliver’s quest to take down Kovar, he will get aid from an unexpected ally. Talia will be returning to the series as a possible ally for Oliver as he attempts to defeat Constantin Kovar. When Talia reveals what she wants in exchange, Oliver’s willingness to accept her aid will fail.
Meanwhile, Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) will attempt to hack the NSA to free Diggle (David Ramsey). However, an anonymous entity flagged her online efforts. She will deal against an unknown but powerful adversary.
On the other hand, Curtis (Echo Kellum) will inform the team about a female vigilante, Tina Boland (guest star Juliana Harkavay). Curtis was the one who uncovered the vigilante who has been wreaking havoc all over the nation. There is a possible team up between Talia and Oliver. Nevertheless, an alliance with Talia is uncertain. It appears that Talia might be an important ally regardless of being illustrated as a villain in the DC comic books.
Back in the present time, Team Arrow is looking out for the new Black Canary. Curtis told the team about Tina Boland, a potential candidate. Fans saw her in the final minutes of episode 10 where she got into a bar fight.
Curtis is tasked with searching because Felicity is a little busy with helping Diggle. Felicity’s enemy seemed to be at par with Felicity’s skills, which is not a good sign for the team. Fans can watch the upcoming episode on Wednesday, February 1 at 8 p.m. ET on CW.
