It appears the holidays won’t be so happy at the Lance household on Arrow.
Christmas will see Alex Kingston reprise her role as Laurel’s mom in Arrow‘s holiday episode and it appears Laurel will no longer be able to keep her sister’s death from the rest of her family.
“Holidays are a good time to reunite family members,” executive producer Marc Guggemheim told EW. “Obviously the Lance family has a lot of issues going on within it that only Laurel knows about. The advantage of bringing Alex Kingston back in this moment in time is to quite frankly turn the knife in Laurel’s gut. We’ve been torturing her with the burdens of keeping this secret and that’s going to get harder with Alex Kingston’s arrival.”
