Juliana Harkavy Is Glad They Made A 'Birds of Prey'-Themed 'Arrow' Episode Before Emily Bett Rickards Left

ComicBook - 04-15


Tonight's episode of Arrow might not be named after the all-female DC superteam the Birds of Prey -- they already did that in a previous episode -- but it has been tied to the concept since it was first announced. Titled "Lost Canary," the episode brings together Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards), the Earth-2 Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy), Sara Lance (DC's Legends of Tomorrow star Caity Lotz), and Dinah Drake (Juliana Harkavy) in a story that may help set the standard for Laurel's status quo going forward. The episode had a largely female behind-the-camera presence, too, and it was particularly special because they got to include Rickards, who will be leaving the show before its eighth and final season.
