Black Canary Is Alive! Or Is She?

In this week’s “Arrow” season 4 episode 19, we get to hear the “Canary Cry” once again.

So does this mean Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy) is still alive?

We are taken back to a May 2013 at Tommy Merlyn’s funeral when Laurel delivered her own eulogy which was supposed to be done by Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell), who watches from a distance. This scene will prove crucial later on in the episode.

Moving back to present day, we see the doctor hand over Black Canary’s costume and things to Oliver. Thanks to doctor-patient privilege, Doctor Schwartz (Venus Terzo) won’t be spilling the beans on the Black Canary’s true identity to the public. While all of Team Arrow  are dealing with this tragic loss, perhaps no one is greatly affected as Laurel’s father, Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne).

How Will ‘The Flash’ Get His Powers Back?

In episode 19 “Back to Normal” of “The Flash,” we get to see Barry Allen in action without his super powers and we also get a possible answer on how The Flash will get his powers back.

Barry struggles as he is reduced to normal after losing his Speed Force to Hunter Zolomon. Among the many things that happened in the last episode, I believe there was no compelling need for The Flash to give up his power in such a naïve and honorable way. Anyways with The Flash speed powers gone, Barry will have to rely on his other skills. This goes to show that, like Batman, anyone can become a superhero whether or not you have a superpower or not.
