THE NEWS BUNDLE: The CW's 'Arrow' Wondercon Sizzle Reel Reveals A Mad Count, A Grateful Roy Harper and Robert Queen Flashbacks


As Arrow returned not only with The Huntress and thrusting Roy Harper closer to his comic book destiny, the superhero hit is ready to take another three weeks off following this week's all-new episode. But with a second season renewal already in the bag, it only seems like another minor wait compared to the major summer hiatus fans will be enduring in a little over a month.

But what will the final arc of the season have in store? Now on the heels of their Wondercon panel today, a sizzle reel that served as a preview for the hours ahead has been revealed and features some major teases for what is fastly approaching.



Arrow has five episodes left this season, with the latest "Unfinished Business" co-written by Smallville's Bryan Q. Miller airing this week. In the episode, when a young woman meets a violent death after partying at Verdant, Detective Lance (Paul Blackthorne) and his new partner, Detective Hilton (guest star Roger Cross) inform Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Tommy (Colin Donnell) that she was on the drug Vertigo.

Oliver immediately pays a visit to the mental institution where The Count (guest star Seth Gabel) is locked up, but finds he is in no condition to deal drugs. However, when The Count escapes and Starling City is flooded with even more Vertigo-related violence, Oliver and Diggle (David Ramsey) make it their mission to track him down.

After Detective Lance uncovers incriminating evidence against him, Tommy goes to great lengths to clear his name, and the fallout from his actions leads Tommy down a new, unexpected path.

In a flashback to the island, Oliver recalls the lessons he learned from Slade (guest star Manu Bennett) and Shado (guest star Celina Jade).

Arrow airs every Wednesday at 8PM only on The CW.
