The last time we saw an incarnation of the Huntress on live-action television was on the short-lived WB series ‘Birds of Prey’ from 2002. Now, the heroine will be making an appearance on the new hit CW superhero drama ‘Arrow’ as Jessica De Gouw dons the mask of the Huntress alongside Oliver Queen’s bow-wielding alter ego vigilante to protect Starling City.
Here’s a synopsis of the episode, which airs on December 5th:
As Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Helena (guest star Jessica De Gouw) grow closer, Oliver trains her to be his ally, complete with showing her how to use a crossbow. Diggle (David Ramsey) disapproves of Oliver sharing his secret with Helena as he’s not sure she can be trusted, but Oliver refuses to listen to his concerns. Helena’s quest for revenge proves to be too strong for Oliver to handle after she kills the head of the Triad and all hell breaks loose.
Thanks to the CW network, we can take a look at some new promotional photos they released for episode 1×8 of ‘Arrow’ titled ‘Vendetta’, where we see the two heroes team up for the first time. Check them out below:
