    There are worse actresses out there... but not many.

    In fairness...She did improve somewhat.

    All right, I feel dumb. I've been watching both Arrow and Dracula, and I never realized they were the same actress.

    I'd rather see her in Dracula than Arrow, but hopefully the Huntress will be written and performed better this season.

    Don't mind the actor, really. Thought she was better as Mina in Dracula, but at least she's coming back to a pre-established role here.
    Should be interesting to see how she and Oliver will react to each other, what she's been doing since then, and especially with Olivers' killing lessened largely.

    Will he have a leg to stand on this time, will she have lessened her brutality, or target different kinds of people, or criminals? Would be interesting to see what new pupil, Roy, might think, too.

    Say she's back not only because of a role to play in the plot, but due to Draculas' 1st season ending recently.

    She was awful her first go round, but vastly improved the second time. And she's been pretty good on Dracula.

    I'd like for her to return and develop into a decent character than a straight up villain

    I don't mind her actual performance, it's fine. Also, I know a guy from Australia who's seen some of her work there and he says that she's a decent actress. My problem is more with how the character is being written. They've turned Huntress into a garden-variety psychopath with none of the complexity/nuance of her comic book counterpart. This BETTER be the episode were they start to redeem her, especially if they're titling it "Birds of Prey."

    I'm banking on her character arc being that she's atoning for what she did. I do wonder if this is going to end up being a backdoor pilot like what Barry got.

    Well, according to the article, she's still trying to kill her dad, so it doesn't sound like she's turning over a new leaf.

    Wouldn't bet on it. At least not while she's still doing Dracula.

    Looking forward to her inevitable face-off with Black Canary.
