The Daughter of Ra's al Ghul is Revealed on Arrow

This season of Arrow has been nothing short of spectacular and has done an amazing job of introducing characters from the DC universe into the show without overkill.  We've already seen a version of Black Canary, Amanda Waller, Dr. Ivo and Brother Blood and next week's episode will introduce Barry Allen.  One of the big shockers of the season so far occurred when the name Ra's al Ghul was dropped a couple of episodes back; we also heard that the daughter of Ra's al Ghul had been dispatched to Starling City to bring back the Canary and most fans jumped to the conclusion that we would be seeing Talia al Ghul somewhere down the line.  According to TV Guide, our assumptions about Talia were misguided and we will be seeing her half-sister, Nyssa al Ghul, instead. Nyssa, who will be played by Katrina Law (Chuck, Spartacus) will be making her debut in episode 13, "Heir to the Demon."
