Nyssa and Talia al Ghul Set to Duke it Out on Arrow

Nyssa and Talia al Ghul set to duke it out on Arrow

Following yesterday’s revelation that Manu Bennett will return as Deathstroke in an upcoming episode, EW reports that another cast member is set to return with Katrina Law reprising her role of Nyssa al Ghul on Arrow. Law’s return to the series will be over the course of multiple episodes, setting up a big battle as she’ll battle against her half-sister Lexa Doig’s Talia al Ghul in the season five finale.

In the context of the series, though both of them are the daughter of Ra’s al Ghul, Talia left the League of Assassins and started her own ninja death cult, while Nyssa disbanded the League after Malcolm Merlyn took over as the leader, so there’s a lot of family angst for them to work out; not to mention Talia’s allegiance with season 5’s big bad, Prometheus.

Arrow won’t return to The CW until Wednesday, April 26 with an episode titled “Dangerous Liaisons,” which is described as follows:

“Oliver, Team Arrow, ARGUS and the SCPD kick off a citywide manhunt for Adrian Chase (Josh Segurra). Helix tells Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) they have a way to find Chase but they will need something big, and illegal, from her in return.”

Arrow stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen, David Ramsey as John Diggle, Willa Holland as Thea Queen, Emily Bett Rickards as Felicity Smoak, John Barrowman as Malcom Merlyn, with Paul Blackthorne as Detective Lance. The series is executive produced by Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, Andrew Kreisberg and Sarah Schechter.
