Those of you watching the first season of the CW's Arrow knew that Helena Bertinelli (Jessica De Gouw) would return to Arrow but maybe you didn't know it would be this soon. Speaking at the Television Critic's Association press tour, Arrow executive producer Greg Berlanti stated, "She’s going to come back. We’re just writing that episode right now. We like to think of her as the crazy ex-girlfriend. So if you can only imagine the turns…her mission isn’t done or complete yet. She wanted to kill her Dad and he’s still alive."

Berlanti also shared that Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards) will have an increased presence in the show moving forward."Those are always the best [in regards to seeing Rickards become a fan favorite]. That’s the great part about TV, in terms of fans.” he said, addong that “she’s got some great storylines coming up and becomes an even more integral and active part of the dynamic of the show."

Arrow returns this Wednesday to the CW at 8pm EST/7PM PST.


SYNOPSIS: After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the Pacific. When he returns home to Starling City, his devoted mother Moira, much-beloved sister Thea, and best friend Tommy welcome him home, but they sense Oliver has been changed by his ordeal on the island. While Oliver hides the truth about the man he's become, he desperately wants to make amends for the actions he took as the boy he was. Most particularly, he seeks reconciliation with his former girlfriend, Laurel Lance. As Oliver reconnects with those closest to him, he secretly creates the persona of Arrow - a vigilante to right the wrongs of his family, fight the ills of society, and restore Starling City to its former glory. By day, Oliver plays the role of a wealthy, carefree and careless philanderer he used to be - flanked by his devoted chauffeur/bodyguard, John Diggle - while carefully concealing the secret identity he turns to under cover of darkness. However, Laurel's father, Detective Quentin Lance, is determined to arrest the vigilante operating in his city. Meanwhile, Oliver's own mother, Moira, knows much more about the deadly shipwreck than she has let on and is more ruthless than he could ever imagine.

Intresting!!

I love Arrow so far, though I think the Huntress story arc was one of the things I liked the least about the show so far. Everything else has been better than expected though, hope it continues.

The Huntress episodes have been the worst in the season so far. I have loved every other episode.
HavocPrime - 1/12/2013, 5:06 PM
I'm not really sure on the actress though, it was like she was trying to do her best Liv Tyler impression.

For me, the best bit of this story is the news that Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards) will be getting more screentime.
MJPETTY7 - 1/12/2013, 5:25 PM
To early. I love her character, but it's to early to bring her back. Wait until Season 2!!!
sameoldthing - 1/12/2013, 5:32 PM
She was super sexy..she did a good job too.
I like how she wasn't stuck on Ollie either..she wanted to do her own thing & took off.

I felt he liked her more than the other way around..want more of her. Yum!

First of all, its supposed to be Green Arrow. Second, I don't like this Nolan based version of "Green Arrow," what is going to happen when they need to introduce black canary? No Canary Cry? This show is dumb, I love green arrow, but this show is dumb, I hate them trying to make Ollie into Batman Begins.
ClarkFarley2012 - 1/12/2013, 6:08 PM
She's meh..
DumbledoreCalrissian - 1/12/2013, 6:30 PM
I could care less about Huntress.
MJPETTY7 - 1/12/2013, 7:36 PM
@Almight The original Black Canary had no powers, and she stayed that way until they retconned the Golden Age characters into Earth-2 and created a second Black Canary. Me, I'm okay with it.

awsome!!!!!!!
Pokeysteve - 1/12/2013, 9:12 PM
Runtime isn't 60 minutes. More like 43ish.
AnditsOn1 - 1/12/2013, 9:22 PM
Those two episodes about huntress were bullshit...not f*cking again....
AnditsOn1 - 1/12/2013, 9:24 PM
@Almight, 100% agree with ya! I hated when they did that and it seems that they are enjoying doing it and will continue to do so for so long...this show has become dumber and dumber because of that I'm telling ya...
GUNSMITH - 1/12/2013, 9:48 PM
SHE LOOKS GOOD, I'D LIKE TO SEE A PROGRESSION IN LOOK OF THE COSTUME BUT THEY'RE GOING TOWARDS SORTA REALISTIC SO I'M CURIOUS TO SEE WHERE THEY TAKE HER
AUSSYACE - 1/12/2013, 9:55 PM
I think Huntress has been a revelation in this show and I cannot wait to see her back...

Is everyone watching the same show here...

She's Hot and I love her character...
mgeoff88 - 1/12/2013, 11:39 PM
Hell Yeah! I thought Helena/Huntress was so bad ass and sexy! I hope Oliver can get through to her.

And I'm glad that Emily Bett Rickards is getting more screen time. I love her character and it doesn't hurt that she is Smoaking hot. ;)
GetsugaTensho22 - 1/13/2013, 5:12 AM
the Huntress episodes were easily some of the best. I don't know what some of you are talking about.
TheIconicMan - 1/13/2013, 6:01 AM
I don't like this Huntress, seriously, I don't. The show is great, but this Huntress.. So cliche, I mean, she's hot, but cliche..
PenditaMarah - 1/13/2013, 9:06 AM
For those people who can't accept this show,just get a life and learn how to be matured.you guys just ruined cbm in the eyes of non-cbm viewers or fans.
TheFlyingGarcia - 1/13/2013, 9:11 AM
I havent been following this show. Is this the helena wayne version of huntress?
Minghagz - 1/13/2013, 11:46 AM
Nice! I liked her in the show.
RexMason - 1/13/2013, 12:33 PM
I want Batman!
JorEllinator - 1/13/2013, 12:55 PM
I think Dick Grayson would be cool, dating Thea and sending a message from Batman which could tie into the JLA
ToddDamian - 1/13/2013, 2:20 PM
I'll be glad to see her back.
XavierLehnsherr - 1/13/2013, 4:40 PM
It would be great if Arrow was Smallville's prequel, and that Smallville tied into Man of Steel, and Man of Steel tied into The Dark Knight trilogy (Superman saved Batman from that explosion in the end of Rises) and The TDK trilogy tied into the upcoming Justice League movie.
ALmazing - 1/13/2013, 4:49 PM
@PenditaMarah, is not that I don't accept it, I'm pretty sure it's good entertainment for what it is. I just can't stand when they take so many liberties with characters I grew up with. That;s why green lantern failed, that's why TDKR rises isn't loved by everyone.
nowtheresaBATman - 1/13/2013, 5:37 PM
@XavierLehnsherr I hope your joking
Pooh - 1/13/2013, 5:44 PM
This show seems to have a lot of strong female characters, like Huntress. The guys, on the other hand, seem to be somewhat brainless.
retr0g0dfather - 1/14/2013, 5:51 AM
When is Oliver going to wear a mask?
fadersdream - 1/14/2013, 8:30 AM
@retr0g0dfather
If history is anything to go on... Season 9, maybe season 10?
dezdigi - 1/14/2013, 9:42 AM
Hotness will return and more screen time for the other hot one, at least that's what I read.
