Arrow returned from it hiatus and immediately dived into the aftermath of Oliver Queen's apparent death. Felicity lost all incentives of continuing Oliver's crusade, Diggle and Roy don't know what to do, and Laurel has begun fighting crime as Black Canary. In what direction will the show go in the next couple of episodes?
Oliver returns to Starling City
After his battle with Ra's al Ghul, Oliver's body was recovered by his old friend, Maseo. Oliver helped Maseo back in Hong Kong to rescue his wife from the clutches of China White. This led Maseo to betray The League of Assassins and save Oliver from death. Maseo took Oliver to his wife, Tatsu, who will help Oliver recover.
But his recovery won't take long because Oliver will be returning to Starling City in the thirteenth episode, titled Canaries. Oliver will be surprised at how Team [Arrow](series:720988) has adapted in his absence, which will cause tension within the team.
Black Canary vs. The Canary
Oliver is not happy to know that Laurel has been suiting up as The Black Canary. Oliver will tell Laurel to stop fighting crime, but Laurel refuses to listen.
Peter Stormare's Count Vertigo, will return to Starling City to cause havoc, which will cause Laurel to confront him. When Laurel gets hit by the vertigo drug, she will have a hallucination where she fights with Sara's Canary.
