New Arrow S2 footage is 1st look at League of Assassin's Nyssa al Ghul in action

The CW’s hit superhero series Arrow is taking one of its biggest dips into the DC pool yet, and here’s the first footage of Ra’s al Ghul’s daughter herself wreaking havoc in Starling City.

After teasing the League of Assassins for much of the season, we’ll finally get to meet Batman stalwart Ra’s al Ghul’s daughter Nyssa this week, as she comes to town trying to track down Sara Lance/Black Canary. Not surprisingly, she can kick butt and take names just like her old man.

We get to see a good bit of Nyssa al Ghul (Katrina Law) in action in the teaser for next week’s episode, as she takes out an entire room of guys and tries to tear the tattered Lance family apart at the seams. We haven’t seen a lot of things scare Oliver up to this point, but Nyssa definitely makes the list.

Check out the episode synopsis for “Heir to the Demon” below.

As Laurel continues to unravel, Oliver and Lance try to convince Sara (guest star Caity Lotz) to stay in Starling City and finally reunite with Laurel and Dinah (guest star Alex Kingston). However, Sara’s fellow League of Assassins member, Nyssa (guest star Katrina Law, Spartacus), comes to bring Sara back to the fold, but when Sara refuses, Nyssa kidnaps Dinah. Realizing she’s putting her family in danger by staying in town, Sara considers re-joining the league.

Nyssa is set to make her debut in the February 5 episode. For now, marvel at her butt-kicking antics and mysteriousness in the clip below:

Are you glad to see Arrow starting to dig into the League of Assassins storyline? Do you think we’ll eventually get to see R’as al Ghul himself?
