In Arrow premiere, Summer Glau intrigues as Oliver's nemesis Isabel Rochev!

Arrow kicked off its second season with a bang! There was sidekicks, the debut of Summer Glau’s Isabel Rochev, lot of smashing through glass, island threats, romance and much more! The second season of The CW's superhero drama is bringing a whole new series of challenges for Oliver Queen, such as facing a new business rival in the form of Isabel Rochev.

What did you think of Arrow 2x01 'City of Heroes'

In the second season premiere, titled 'City of Heroes', we’re seeing Summer in a very different way than we’ve ever seen her before. She blow us away with her wide-ranging talent and magnetic presence on screen. She effortlessly embodied the enigmatically beautiful and professionally dangerous Isabel Rochev, who is more likely to pierce your chest with her icy daze and sharp remark than an arrow (pun intented).
I loved the dynamic between Oliver and Isabel, Summer Glau brings so much as always to her character. We don't know exactly how antagonistic her relationship to Oliver Queen will be this season but I can't wait to see more of those intense scenes on the boardroom - or anywhere else -, which allows to establish a balance between fast-paced action scenes and drama. 
Screencaps as well as clips from Arrow 2x01 'City of Heroes' featuring Summer Glau can be found here. The episode should be available for streaming at The CW website, as well as on iTunes or Hulu (usually eight hours after airing).
We don't know yet if Summer Glau will be in episode 2 titled 'Identity' but we will keep you informed as soon as we have more news.

I did not get the feeling Isabel Rochev was angry in the episode as Felicity said, more like sassy smile

Promo pictures were a bit misleading.
