Following the events of Batgirl and the Birds of Prey: Rebirth #1, Batgirl and Black Canary chase down Huntress whose vengeance over mobsters has criss-crossed their search into the new criminal Oracle. The comic’s events turn the adversaries into reluctant partners in the search for both Oracle and Fenice (whose snake soldiers are likely to give the gals trouble over the next few issues).

Continuing the opening arc of the new series, Green Arrow‘s long road back to reclaim what was taken from him leads to an encounter with John Diggle. While the initial encounter is more than a little frosty, the old allies quickly put past issues behind them to work together to take down the Ninth Circle who have kidnapped the snooping Black Canary to force Green Arrow to show himself (setting up next issue’s suicidal two-man rescue operation).

As the members of the team struggle to deal with the death of Laurel (Katie Cassidy) an impulsive young woman (Madison McLaughlin) assumes the identity of Black Canary and begins targeting those she blames for the death of her parents. Whether or not she stays dead, or is eventually resurrected like so many of the characters in the series so far, “Canary Cry” certainly attempts to sell the idea that Laurel isn’t coming back (even going so far as to publicly out her as the real Black Canary at her funeral). Cassidy does appear in the episode as we get flashbacks of Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Laurel following Tommy’s death rather than scenes from the island this week.

I had serious doubts about DC’s new Black Canary once I heard the concept of turning the hero into the lead singer of a traveling rock band running into problems at every stop (rather than, you know, let her be a super-hero). It’s kind of like Scooby-Doo without the necessary zaniness to sell the concept. Gail Simone’s transformative version of the character seems long forgotten at this point by DC Editorial.

Beginning with the shipwreck, the latest episode’s flashbacks begin to fill in the gaps of Sara‘s (Caity Lotz) journey from the the helpless survivor near death lost in the middle of the ocean, to her time on the freighter under the care of Dr. Anthony Ivo (Dylan Neal), and her journey to Nanda Parbat and membership in the League of Assassins who have come to Starling City in search of their missing member.
