"Arrow" Season 2, Episode 10, "Blast Radius," airs on The CW on Jan. 15. Avid fans of Stephen Amell get to watch him first at the People's Choice Awards 2014. This happens a week before the new episode air date. It's Oliver Queen vs Deathstroke in the second half of the season. But what else happens next?
Spoiler alert: This feature contains major spoilers on the previous and next episodes of Arrow Season 2. Episode 10, 'Blast Radius,' welcomes a new villain into Starling City. Watch the new episode in a week's time.
"Firefly" and "Serenity" actor Sean Maher joins the cast of Arrow Season 2 as Mark Scheffer aka Shrapnel. In the DC Comics universe, Shrapnel has superhuman strength. On TV, he's going after another villain, Sebastian Blood (Kevin Alejandro).
Brother Blood is expected to use the Mirakuru (The Miracle) serum against Shrapnel in 'Blast Radius.' The title also suggests a massive explosion. How does Oliver Queen figure in the Shrapnel vs Brother Blood fight? (Incidentally, recurring Arrow guest Summer Glau played Sean's character's sister in Firefly/Serenity.)
Still on superhuman strength, Roy Harper (Colton Haynes), who has been injected with the Mirakuru serum, could be Oliver's official sidekick in the second half of Arrow Season 2.
But will the TV version of "Red Arrow" keep it together despite the toxic side effects of the Mirakuru serum? Roy Harper might get worse before he gets better. Thea Queen (Willa Holland), aka Speedy, will take care of him, or course. These two are inseparable. (In the DC comics, Roy Harper is also called Speedy.)
Caity Lotz' Sara Lance is anticipated to die some time in Arrow Season 2 - perhaps toward the finale? Fans of Katie Cassidy's Laurel Lance can hardly wait to see her sport the Black Canary costume. On the other hand, Caity has been doing an amazing job on the show.
