Katana Cuts Loose in ‘Arrow’ Promo

If you watched last night’s episode of Arrow from start to finish, you may have noticed a familiar character from DC Comics. Actress Rila Fukushima (The Wolverine) has been appearing as Tatsu Yamashiro already this season. But next week, she will wear the guise of her alter ego, Katana, as revealed in the promo for “This Is Your Sword”. This will be Katana’s first live-action appearance on the small screen.

AL SAH-HIM TAKES HIS FINAL STEPS TO ASCENSION; ROY AND THEA REUNITE — Oliver/Al Sah-him (Stephen Amell) finishes his training and is left with two final tasks to become the next Ra’s al Ghul. Ra’s (guest star Matt Nable) threatens Nyssa (guest star Katrina Law) and delivers some shocking news. Meanwhile, Malcolm (John Barrowman) makes a surprising offer to Team Arrow and Thea (Willa Holland) goes to see Roy (Colton Haynes). Wendey Stanzler directed the episode with story by Erik Oleson and teleplay by Ben Sokolowski & Brian Ford Sullivan (#322).   Original airdate 5/6/2015.

Arrow airs Wednesdays at 8/7 Central on The CW
