The CW's Arrow could be making another spin-off in a "Flash" in the wake of Barry Allen (Grant Gustin)'s visit to Starling City, as the Huntress meets the Black Canary -- only this time, it is Sarah Lance (Caity Lotz), not Laurel (Katie Cassidy).

TVGuide.com broke the news that Jessica De Gouw will reprise her role as the Huntress in an upcoming episode of Arrow entitled "Birds of Prey", which is scheduled to air on Wednesday, March 26.

In case you may not understand, Birds of Prey is a team of female superheroes that includes the Huntress, the Canary, and former Batgirl Barbara Gordon, who's now a wheelchair-bound Oracle of information. There was a short-lived television series that lasted 13 episodes on the WB from 2002 to 2003.

De Gouw, who stars on NBC's Dracula, appeared on Arrow last season for three episodes as Helena Bertinelli/the Huntress, who seeks revenge against her crime boss father for the murder of her fiance. She had a brief romance with Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell), who was known as "the Vigilante" and/or "the Hood" at the time. Oliver tried to train Helena as his ally, but it turns out that she is more ruthless and bloodthirsty than he was, and their relationship came to an end.

Arrow airs Wednesdays at 8pm on the CW.
