Oliver Queen is getting a new enemy in tonight’s episode of Arrow and it comes in the form of The Count (played by “Fringe” alumn Seth Gabel). We’ve been reporting on the character for some time now and his debut tonight has been a long-awaited moment in the series. Below, you’ll find a clip from tonight’s episode that details the origin of The Count’s name as well as his first meeting with Oliver Queen (via THR).
The episode, titled “Vertigo,” is described as follows: Thea is in trouble with the police after she gets caught using a drug called “Vertigo.” Oliver thinks the only way to keep her out of jail is to find the dealer, a man who goes by the name of “The Count” . Oliver turns to McKenna Hall (guest star Janina Gavankar), an old flame and current Vice cop, for help. Meanwhile, Laurel steps in to defend Thea, and Felicity gives Oliver some disturbing news about Moira.
Arrow airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
