Episode 7.11 - Siren - TV Guide

She's been kicking butt and taking names since 1947, but kinkily beloved DC Comics superheroine Black Canary gets an extreme makeover on Smallville. Played by Canadian actress Alaina Huffman, she sports exceptional hand-to-hand combat skills, an ear-shattering 'canary cry' (described in the script as a subsonic pulse), and, of course, the character's trademark fishnet stockings. But in a departure from previous incarnations, she starts out on the wrong side of the law, running errands for Lex Luthor, who has fooled her into thinking Justice League leader Green Arrow (returning guest star Justin Hartley) is a terrorist. Romantically linked in the comics, Black Canary and Green Arrow will "meet cute and slightly violent," says executive producer Al Gough. Another new twist: her alter ego, Dinah Lance, is a conservative radio talk show host, dubbed "the Right Wing Hawk of the Airways," by archnemesis Lois Lane. Speaking of that budding Daily Planet reporter, she has a tempestuous reunion with Green Arrow's alter ego, Oliver Queen, who dumped her a year ago.

"Hell hath no fury like Lois scorned," Gough says. "Oliver has to deal with both Black Canary and Lois, and quite frankly, I don't know which is worse."

Black Canary goes after Chloe after she procures Lex's file for Oliver.
