, but they will become competitors in Fall 2013, since the show they play in, respectively NBC's Revolution and The CW's Arrow

Summer Glau plays Jamie Fleming / Orwell, an investigative blogger who wages war on the crime and corruption in Palm City. She becomes Vince's ally and helps him even though she is trying to keep her life and her reasons a secret and she is a skilled fighter. It is revealed that Orwell's first name is "Jamie" and that she may harbour secret feelings for Vince.
