As if psychotic killers running rampant around Starling City weren't enough, last night's "Arrow" (entitled "Unfinished Business") saw the return of the Count and the deadly drug known as Vertigo. Beginning with what might as well have been an anti-narcotics PSA, a woman dances across the floor of Club Verdant high out of her mind on Vertigo. She continues dancing all the way into oncoming traffic, then proceeds to get hit by a car.
Detective Lance shows up at Verdant, not too long after the incident, and questions both Tommy and Oliver about the woman. Tommy insists that he's never met the woman and Oliver orders Felicity to run a check on all Verdant employees to see which of them may have a drug history. Lance continues his investigation at the Starling City Asylum, where the Count is currently being held.
Looks like Yao Fei's daughter is finally stepping out of the shadows and into the spotlight (see what we did there?). On last week's episode of "Arrow," flashback Oliver is introduced to a new prisoner of the island of Lian Yu: Shado, played by Celina Jade. With this week's Shado-filled episode mere hours away, we sat down with Celina Jade to get the scoop on Oliver Queen's newest mentor and love interest.
"It’s always been a dream for me to play a comic book character," Celina Jade raves about her role on the series. "As soon as I got the audition, I was super excited. I was like 'Wow, I get to play someone who’s an incredible archer as well as martial artist?' It’s just my thing; martial arts, comic book character, strong Asian female, I love it."
If catching up on "The Walking Dead" is still far down on your to-do list or you still haven't had time to finish Sunday night's season finale, hold off on reading any further. The spoilers are lurking below and we want you to be careful. Venture ahead with caution...
"The Walking Dead" might have ended season three on an up note, but there's a lot left up in the air for season four. The Governor is still alive -- and will return next season as a series regular -- and the fate of the now much larger prison group is still undetermined. Expect things to get bad fast when "The Walking Dead" returns in October.
"The Governor is still out there,” co-executive producer Denise Huth told Entertainment Weekly. “The war is not over. Rick and our group here won the first round and scared him off."
If you aren't caught up on the third season of "The Walking Dead," or if you haven't seen last night's season finale, you may want to steer clear of this news. The sheer knowledge of this human being's involvement in season 4 of "The Walking Dead" is itself a spoiler. The casting news comes from The Hollywood Reporter, so we can be reasonably sure that it's not a truly delightful April Fool's Day joke.
While executive producer Marc Guggenheim may have kept pretty quiet about the twists and turns awaiting Oliver Queen in the rest of "Arrow's" first season, he did show off a sizzle reel containing exciting new footage from the rest of the season. The sizzle reel, which debuted at Wondercon in Anaheim this past weekend, can be viewed in full below, followed by the one tasty tidbit Guggenheim felt fine dropping.
And so begins the longest, dullest, dryest seven months of the year, at least when it comes to seeing zombie body parts go splat on AMC's "The Walking Dead". Boo! The season came to a bloody, bullet-riddled, breathtaking end last night, as we bid goodbye to the Deep South survivors of the walker apocalypse until Season 4 returns next October... and psssst, this is a finale, so certain of said survivors may be getting a more permanent send-off, too. So place your bets, grab your tissues, and get ready to find out who was welcomed to the tombs — in more ways than one — in the final moments of season 3.
At this point, "Arrow" is pretty much doing a victory lap. Fans were skeptical of the series at first, mostly because they dropped "Green" from the title. But the lastfewepisodes have introduced crucial characters from the comics into the show and brought old favorites back into the fold. They've even pleased fans by promising a lot more Roy Harper and Deathstroke in season two.
Now the CW has released this extended promo for next Wednesday's episode of "Arrow," with sees Seth Gabel return as the Count.

Don't be alarmed! The 2013 MTV Movie Awards are fast approaching, not a zombie apocalypse. But this new promo for the awards show does zombify attending celebs like Emma Watson and Seth Rogen and performer Selena Gomez. Even host Rebel Wilson can't escape the plague spreading in this teaser. Check out the "Walking Dead"-style clip below.
As if there weren't enough psychotic justice-seekers roaming the streets of Starling City, last night's episode of "Arrow" introduced us to another crazed vigilante inspired by Oliver Queen's hooded heroics. "Salvation" begins with a news report about John Nickel, one of the wealthiest real estate developers in the city and also one of the dirtiest. Hooding up, Oliver heads over to Nickel's penthouse only to find that he's been kidnapped by a madman who calls himself the Savior.
