Alex Kingston Returning to 'Arrow' as Dinah Lance


Alex Kingston in Arrow


Keeping secrets from those you love can be hard. But hiding the fact that your daughter is not only alive, but a full-fledged superhero from your ex-wife has got to be the WORST. But that's exactly what Detective Lance is going to have to deal with now that Alex Kingston is gearing up to reprise her role as Dinah Lance on The CW’s 'Arrow,' according to TVLine.

Kingston first made her debut on the series during Season 1, when Dinah returned to Starling City to make amends with Laurel and Quentin as well as convince them that their other daughter, Sara, was still alive. Back then, her theory was quickly cast aside as wishful thinking, but in light of recent events...well, Quentin better start working on his poker face (or get ready to receive a hearty helping of "I told you so").

Mama Lance is slated to resurface in Episode 14, though no specific details are given regarding what exactly brings her back. Will she bring new evidence with her to shed some light on her missing daughter's whereabouts? Can Quentin really resolve to keep the truth from his estranged wife during her stay? We'll just have to wait and see.

Stephen Amell recently hinted at Kingston’s encore performance in a tweet to actress Natalie Morales, who happens to be a huge 'Doctor Who' fan, where the British redhead recurs as River Song. "Working with an actor for the first time today," the actor tweeted. "@nataliemorales will be pleased."

Are you excited for Kingston's return to Starling City? Will she end up finding out the truth about Sara? Hit the comments below and let us know your thoughts!

'Arrow' airs on Wednesdays at 8/7c on The CW.

The Lance family migrated from Great Britain roughly 30 years ago. They worked very hard on adopting a generic American accent so as to fit in. Although they still enjoy beans with breakfast and the occasional spotted dick.
