Summer Glau's character in Arrow is expected to appear first in the season two premiere of the CW's hit superhero drama.
The Season 2 Premiere of Arrow will be called "City of Heroes" and this episode will see the introduction of Adam Donner, the new Assitant District Attorney (ADA) and Laurel Lance's new boss.
The title of the episode fits the description of the new season given by Arrow co-creator and executive Marc Guggenheim: "Season 2 is all about Oliver Queen going from vigilante to being a hero..."
Warning, the following photos and informations contain spoilers!
Some exclusive, new photos from the set of CW’s Arrow season 2 also surfaced online; they feature new looks at actress Katie Cassidy, who plays Laurel Lance, and Stephen Amell, who plays Oliver Queen, in action out in Vancouver, Canada. The scene they were shooting on july 13, appeared to be a makeshift graveyard scene (presumably Tommy Merlyn's funeral). At one point, Laurel gave Oliver a kiss and a hugging greeting before they started walking.

While Summer Glau isn't featured in theses photos, they can be connected to the character she plays. Those who've watched Arrow season one remember that Laurel and Oliver lost Tommy in an emotional scene at the end of the season one finale when his father's destruction machine went off in The Glades. Arrow's writers intended Tommy's death to function as a kind of catalyst for Oliver and Laurel, in the sense that it will affect both their further actions and their romantic relationship. That leaves room for a new love interest in Oliver's life, such as Summer's Isabel Rochev for example.
There's no doubt we’ll get a whole lot of new spoiler this Saturday, July 20th when the Arrow cast and crew shows up at the 2013 San Diego Comic Con. So stay tuned and as usual, read the latest tidbits of information on the forum thread.
On a side note, Just Jared article mentions Katie Cassidy new hair color: “Brown?… blonde?… Maybe both?… Time will tell!". On the same topic, you can vote in our poll: Should Summer Glau Go Blonde on Arrow?

I personally don't think Summer will be Oliver Queen's love interest because he already knows he is well in to Lauren Lance. Surely Summer(Isabel Rochev) will be more interested in her business for the first few episodes, unless she uses feigned lust for Oliver to con him about her intentions.
What does anyone else think? Will she pretend to love him?

No, I'm not reading the comics. And as stated before, Arrow writers don't follow the comics storylines, anyway.
And yes, executive producers do unveil some informations when interviewed (at the notable exception of Josh Friedman though); then you just have to read between the lines.

Yes, there is always flashbacks to his time on the island. All the nasty things that happened. I take it you all know that his big friend on the island was one of the gladiators in Spartakus on HBO? Yep, it's him.
I never checked out the lady (Celina Jade. She is a quadruple threat: an actress, singer/songwriter, model and martial artist. Born in Hong Kong to American Kung Fu star, Roy Horan (who shared the big screen with the legendary Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan), action fighting has been in Celina's blood from an early age and her passion shows in her lead role in Legendary Assassin.
Come to think of it, was she killed? I can't remember. I think I'll watch the repeats on SKY, they are running at the moment.
