There was plenty of confusion as exactly who Caity Lotz was playing in the upcoming season of Arrow. Early reports indicated that she'd be playing the Black Canary, replacing Katie Cassady's Laurel Lance. Then the CW revealed that the character wouldn't necessarily be the Black Canary, but would instead push Cassady's character into the role.
Well, in addition to revealing that Barry Allen would be appearing in Arrow, CW president Mark Pedowitz revealed exactly who Caity Lotz's character was. Here's the quote from an interview with E Online:
I hope she brings a certain amount of conflict since she's playing the sister of Laurel Lance.
So it looks like Lotz will be playing Sarah Lance, who was presumably killed while travelling the Pacific Ocean with Ollie. That would also explain why Lotz's character would serve as a new love interest for Ollie. It hasn't been revealed how Sarah Lance survived the yacht explosion, but I'm sure we'll find out soon enough.
On an unrelated note, E Online calls Barry Allen 'Dr. Brett Allen'. Hopefully that's just a typo.
