"Arrow" Kicked Off Season 3 With A Shocking Death

At least we still have the flashbacks. WARNING: MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD!

Posted on

Who Killed Sara Lance?

That will be the question on the minds of Arrow fans everywhere following the Season 3 premiere, titled "The Calm," which sent Sara Lance (Caity Lotz) flying off a rooftop at the hands of a mysterious assailant. Is this, perhaps, the first appearance of the year's big bad, Ra's al Ghul (Matt Nable)?

Oh, and to add insult to grave injury, Sara's body landed — with a back-breaking thud — at the feet of her sister, Laurel (Katie Cassidy).


Thankfully this dark, dark cloud has two silver linings.

1. With Arrow's heavy flashback element, this is not the last fans have seen of Sara. In fact, next week's episode is titled "Sara" — and brings back the equally dead Tommy Merlyn (Colin Donnell).

2. Sara's death is an important catalyst for Laurel's storyline this season. "This is a big year of evolution for Laurel," executive producer Marc Guggenheim told BuzzFeed News. "And that starts in the very first episode."
