The real big bad of Arrow's second season was finally revealed!
It turns out Sebastian Blood's (Kevin Alejandro) quest to make super soldiers is under the direction of Slade Wilson (Manu Bennett). Sporting his infamous eye patch, Slade was seen in present-day Starling City, telling Brother Blood that he is determined to burn the vigilante's world to the ground. Why does he hate Oliver (Stephen Amell) so much after spending all that time with him on the island? Because, given a choice, Oliver instinctively saved Sara (Caity Lotz) over Shado (Celina Jade) on the island, much to the dismay of Slade, who had harbored feelings for Shado.
But that was the least of the action during Wednesday's midseason finale, which also featured Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) taking one giant leap to becoming the superhero we all know and love. What's next for him and the rest of Team Arrow? Executive producers Andrew Kreisberg and Greg Berlanti were on hand during a screening of the episode to tease what's next:

On Arrow, Starling City isn't really fond of Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) right now because of his mother — along with Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman) — are why half of The Glades was leveled during the Undertaking. But it's not just Oliver who will seek the public's support as he attempts to rebuild the city: Arrow will also need their help if he wants to be seen as a hero, not the killer vigilante they've come to know. Now that Ollie has sworn to go about being a hero a different way, will the city support the Arrow? TVGuide.com caught up with Amell to get the scoop on that, the true nature of Isabel Rochev (Summer Glau) and the super-powered elephant in the room (Hint: The Flash!):

The U.S. Supreme Court issued two landmark rulings related to the issue of same-sex marriage Wednesday. First, the court ruled that the federal Defense of Marriage Act, which defines marriage as between a man and a woman, is unconstitutional — paving the way for legally married same-sex couples to receive the same federal benefits as straight married couples. Second, the Court dismissed an appeal against California's Proposition 8, which banned same-sex marriage in the state — meaning that same-sex marriage can resume in California.
Celebrities took to Twitter to voice their opinions on the rulings. Here are some of their reactions:
