Arrow

A storm is coming Mr Queen… Don’t be fooled by the episode title, which suggests Oliver and the gang’s return is about as exciting as a camomile tea, instead, the wheels are set into motion for Arrow’s most epic chapter to date.

It begins swimmingly enough, though. Crime in Starling City is at an all-time low and, thinking he’s cracked the work/life balance that has eluded so many superheroes, Ollie asks Felicity out on a date. Naturally, a big bad has to spoil everything - this time, a brand new villain (Peter Stormare, The Blacklist) operating under a familiar name: Count Vertigo.

Green and red go well together when Oliver and Roy bring him down. The circle widens, too, as Laurel joins the secret society, plus, look out for the return of Sarah/the Canary, and former Man of Steel Brandon Routh (Superman Returns), who swings by as businessman Ray Palmer aka The Atom - in the comics, he can shrink stuff.
