Susanna Thompson, who plays Moira Queen in Arrow, gave TV Fanatic some insight into the mind of her character, what we can expect when Count Vertigo makes a return visit in this weeks episode 'State v. Queen', and twist and turns ahead.

Arrow executive producer Andrew Kreisberg on Felicity/Oliver
If your heart broke for poor Felicity after Oliver and Isabel’s hook-up, you’re not alone! But rest assured, she’s not going to spend the next batch of episodes crying into a bucket of Häagen-Dazs. As it has been reported, Barry Allen, who debuts in the Dec. 4 episode, is going to be catching Felicity’s eye, and while loyal Olicity shippers might not be excited about that news, Andrew Kreisberg is confident they’ll win you over yet. “I think that as many people are shipping Olicity, halfway through episode 8, there are going to be just as many people shipping Bericity,” he says. “They’re amazing together…we always know Grant [Gustin] was destined to be Barry, but once we saw him and Emily [Bett Rickards] together, it was even more clear because they’re just so good together.” As for Oliver and Felicity, Kreisberg says they will remain on unsure ground. “I think they’re taking baby steps toward feeling each other out about the possibility of maybe one day that maybe something maybe could possibly maybe be something more than friends and co-vigilantes,” he said, laughing at his extra-cautious phrasing. “They’re as star-crossed, in a way, as Oliver and Laurel. But star-crossed is a good thing for a superhero. It means we need a lot more episodes to get to that.”
The CW has released a preview for next weeks episode of Arrow 'The Scientist'. In episode 2.08 of Arrow, Summer Glau is reprising her role as Isabel Rochev and, judging from the promotional photos released previously, she seems upset with Oliver. Former Glee actor Grant Gustin also makes its first appearance as Barry Allen (The Flash).
"Arrow" Meanwhile, The CW is adding another familiar DC comics villain to its ever-expanding Rogues Gallery, with Graham Shiels (Thor The Dark World) set to play Cyrus Gold, a.K.a. Solomon Grundy, in episode nine. Of course, given Arrow"s realistic take, it"s unlikely we"ll see him as a zombie -- for the time being at least.
"Three Ghosts" "After a fight with Cyrus Gold AKA the Acolyte (guest star Graham Shiels), Oliver (Stephen Amell) is drugged and left for dead. Determined to cure him, Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) makes a risky decision. The cure causes Oliver to hallucinate, and what he sees forces him to confront his past. Meanwhile, Barry (guest star Grant Gustin) continues to help Felicity, and their connection grows stronger. The Arrow asks Lance (Paul Blackthorne) to look into Gold, but when the stakeout on Gold goes bad, someone is killed. Roy (Colton Haynes) is captured and tortured by Brother Blood (guest star Kevin Alejandro)." Arrow airs on The CW on Wednesday evenings.
Next week episode is a two-parter and also the mid-season finale.
The 2 episodes, according to IMDB are episode 8 'The Scientist', airing on December 4th and Episode 9 'Three Ghosts', airing December 11th.
Summer Glau said in an interview that she filmed 5 episodes; 'The Scientist' will be her 4th appearance which means she plays in one more. My guess is that it is in episode 9 and that it will close her story arc.
When we meet Allen, he has no superpowers, but that will change down the line. After his appearances in two back-to-back Arrow episodes (episodes 8 and 9), Gustin will then move over to begin work on The Flash TV pilot, which is in contention as a full series for next fall.

#479 Perhaps it was this sequence of events that spurred Isabel in to doing what she did? Did Isabel assume Felicity was jealous or wanted Oliver's undying loving attention and hated him talking to other beautiful hot women? (This is her immodest thought haha).
Arrow Executive Producer Greg Berlanti Confirms DC"s TV And Cinematic Universes Are Not Linked.
Arrow star Stephen Amell has hinted at the possibility of his version of Green Arrow lining up alongside Henry Cavill"s Superman and Ben Affleck"s Batman in the inevitable Justice League movie, while Grant Gustin"s upcoming TV debut as Barry Allen / The Flash has led to speculation that he could be set to cameo in 2015"s Man Of Steel sequel, or even headline his own Flash movie in 2016. Well, according to Arrow executive producer, that"s not the case, "We haven"t had any of those conversations other than to say, what characters are we allowed to use this year and advocate or request certain ones that are of interest to us, "Berlanti tells Fandango. "And every now and then, they"ll say, "You can"t have that guy," They don"t say why, and we figure out why later on,"So there you have it - don"t expect any crossover between the DC Cinematic Universe and Warner"s various television projects, which also includes the planned series Constantine, Hourman, and Gotham focussing on Jim Gordon in a pre-Batman Gotham City.

Due to the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday this week (yay!), many of our beloved shows are on a temporary hiatus (boo!) — one of which includes The CW hit 'Arrow.' So what does this mean exactly?
