Arrow: Scoop on Katana (Rila Fukushima)’s return from TVLine’s Matt Webb Mitovich

Meaning, is she being brought back just to be written off à la Deadshot and Waller, other DC Comics characters that existed on Arrow but will also be in August’s Suicide Squad movie? That I do not know, though Katana’s nest appearance promises to be “surprising.” As EP Wendy Mericle told me, “We loved that Tatsu last season kind of evolved into [Katana], so we’re really excited about her return. It was great to have Rila [Fukushima] back and to see that character again, but it’ll be kind of a new, surprising way that we do it.”
