The only thing that Arrow viewers can really do with Zagorsky's arrival as Athena is speculate wildly.

Nyssa's return to Arrow is apparently meant to warn Oliver of "an impending danger that will threaten everything we know and love." Kyra Zagorsky is an American actress. Derek is a Philadelphia based writer and unabashed TV and comic book junkie.

"I actually expect it to be controversial because we're doing something that's so different than what we've done in years past. Zagorsky, known for her role on SyFy's Helix as Dr. Julie Walker, will play Athena on Arrow. Arrow has recently added Kyra Zagorsky to its season six roster, according to TVLine. TV Line is reporting that Zagorsky has now joined the cast of Arrow season 6. All rights reserved. Athena is described thusly: Bearing a scar across her face as an example of her fearlessness and determination, Athena aims to maintain the legacy of Malcolm Merlyn, her fallen commander — and thus sees anyone who was once associated with him as a potential threat. There was a sense that the trouble with the League might not be entirely over  in Arrow when it was announced that Katrina Law would return this season as the Daughter of the Demon, Nyssa al Ghul. Team Arrow might be dealing with an unpredictable threat at the hands of Cayden James (Michael Emerson), but it looks like another antagonist will soon be entering the fold.

There's one particular hard right turn that we've got up our sleeves that we've never done before.

There are many notable female members of the League of Assassins in the comics.

None are named Athena or fit the character's exact description, including that apparently notable facial scar.

The League of Assassins lives on as Arrow season 6 adds Kyra Zagorsky to its cast, as a mysterious former member and possible villain, Athena. “In an unforgettable episode that will change Arrow forever, Katrina Law returns as the Daughter of the Demon, Nyssa Al Ghul,” executive producers Wendy Mericle and Marc Guggenheim said of Nyssa's return. Zagorsky is best known for her roles on Helix (no relation to the Arrow group of the same name), The 100, Continuum, and Supernatural. This is sure to bring a pretty unique challenge to Team Arrow, and it sounds like it could have something to do with the much-anticipated return of Nyssa al Ghul (Katrina Law).
