Laurel Lance’s mother, Dinah Lance, has been a vigilante for more than 20 years. Laurel sees the good her mother does; and, despite her wishes, sets out training to save the world. When a particle accelerator explosion leaves Laurel with a high-frequency cry, she seeks advice from her good friend Cisco who has a profound knowledge of metahumans. Cisco convinces Laurel that fighting for your city is what a hero would do, and with powers such as a super-sonic scream, how could Laurel turn down the opportunity to help those in need. Dinah Laurel Lance, always trying to save the world.
“He told me his name was Ted and he was a law student. In just a couple of blocks, he turned a way that wasn’t the normal route that was to the university and I asked him about that and he was very polite and asked my permission if it would be all right if he took a little detour. He told me he had to run a little errand up by the zoo and I told him that would be fine. And then we went right on past the zoo and I said “Hey, I thought we were taking me to the zoo.” And he said “No, I said near the zoo.”
As he’s driving, he’s kinda looking at parking places and side roads. The conversation started to go weird then because he stopped talking to me. And I’m still trying to make idle conversation and… I’m thinking he’s probably looking for a place to pull off and park and wants to make out. I don’t know him and I’m not really a make out person, but he’s still a cute law student and I don’t want to offend him and I don’t want to embarrass myself, so I’m thinking of how do I get out of this situation.
And then he pulled into a parking place and parked the car and turned it off…. He then turned in the car seat and was facing me and leaned in really close. I thought he was going to kiss me. Instead he said very quietly “Do you know what, I’m going to kill you.” And he put his hands on my throat and started squeezing.”
