Sins of the Mother
The Wednesday, Nov. 6 episode of Birds of Prey was "Sins of the Mother."

Here's how The WB described the episode:

"Barbara and Helena learn the truth about Dinah and Dinah learns the truth about her own past when her mother, Carolyn Lance (guest star Lori Loughlin), comes to New Gotham in search of the daughter she abandoned years before. Dinah is shocked to learn that Carolyn was once Batman's protege, Black Canary. Meanwhile, Helena learns that Detective Reese has family issues of his own when he becomes secretive about a ruthless gangster."

Jeff Woolnough directed the episode, which was written by Melissa Rosenberg and Hans Tobeason.

Another description states the following:

"Dinah soon discovers that there is more to her abilities than power of the mind, she also has some telekinetic potential as well. Meanwhile, The Black Canary, arrives in New Gotham in search of her long abandoned daughter, and asks for Oracles help in doing it. But what Helena and Barabara are shocked to discover that The Black Canary’s daughter is actually Dinah."

Stephen McHattie, who plays Hawke, is also in this episode. McHattie has already been in two comics-inspired shows this year, playing a villain in the Mutant X episode "Power Play" and doing the voice of Shade in Cartoon Network's Justice League.
