When it was announced back in September 2015 that Beth from The Walking Dead, a.k.a Emily Kinney, would be portraying the Bug-Eyed Bandit for an episode The Flash, we were sure that — considering the character's ties to Atom — it wouldn't be long before she popped up on Arrow, too.
Now, The CW has just released the official synopsis for the Arrow episode titled "Beacon Of Hope," which hits our screens March 30, and it seems those predictions were correct — the Bug-Eyed Bandit is back.
The official synopsis reads:
BRIE LARVAN AKA THE BUG-EYED BANDIT SETS HER SIGHTS ON FELICITY – Brie Larvan (guest star Emily Kinney) breaks out of jail and turns up at Palmer Tech threatening to kill everyone unless she gets the bio-chip that is implanted in Felicity’s (Emily Bett Rickards) spine. When Oliver (Stephen Amell) realizes that Felicity, Thea (Willa Holland) and Donna (guest star Charlotte Ross) are trapped in Palmer Tech with everyone else, he looks to a surprising ally to help Team Arrow save the day.
Kinney first appeared in Season 1, Episode 18 of The Flash, "All Star Team Up," a clip of which you can see below:
Who Is The Bug-Eyed Bandit?
For those of you unfamiliar, the Bug-Eyed Bandit has been gender swapped for The CW's DC show, originally going by the name of Bertram Larvan — now Brie Larvan. The character has been around in comic-book form since the '60s and, given his skills as an inventor-come-villain, has honed his talents to develop a small army of robotic insects.
