In what is still causing shockwaves – and more than a few hearts to flutter – we were as surprised as anyone when the CW action series Arrow recently gave us its first lesbian kiss.
In the February 5th episode, Sara Lance (aka Black Canary), played by Caity Lotz, was confronted by fellow League of Assasin member Nyssa al Ghul (Katrina Law) and ordered to return to the villainous fold.
Not so much a shock there, but when the women first saw each other instead of jumping into battle, the beautiful twosome melted into each other’s arms and passionately locked lips. Turns out the women were much more than mere assasins!
The episode also included a touching scene where Sara came out to her father (Paul Blackthorne) about the relationship and while he may have been surprised at the news, he was more relieved that his daughter had companionship while she’d been presumed dead.
Sadly, Nyssa left without Sara by the end of the episode but hopefully she’ll be back sooner rather than later since there obviously is still a lot of feeings between them.
Lotz, who was once a dancer on tour with the likes of Avril Lavigne and Lady Gaga as well as a singer with the group Soccx, told AfterEllen last week from the Vancouver set of Arrow that she hopes Law returns to the series since there’s obviously much more of a story to tell. Also, the actress talked about how she found out from producers about the storyline twist as well as Sara not having her sexuality labeled.
Arrow airs Wednesdays at 8pm on the CW.
