Stephen Amell and Manu Bennett

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:
Summer Glau is on Oliver Queen's list!
Continuing with Arrow's penchant for welcoming geektastic familiar faces, the show has tapped Glau in a recurring role for Season 2, TVGuide.com has learned.
Arrow's second season to feature two villains
The 31-year-old actress will play...

Arrow vs. Dark Archer! The ultimate showdown between Starling City's two "saviors" did not disappoint in Wednesday's Arrow season finale. One of them came out on top, but there was still a major casualty in the finale. Keep reading to find out how a surprising death came to pass:
Katie Cassidy and Stephen Amell
Throughout its first season, Arrow has used flashbacks to show Oliver's growth from playboy millionaire to vigilante after being stranded on an island for five years. But what about his time before the island?
Margo Martindale and Jake Johnson
What kind of family must it be where slacker bartender Nick Miller (Jake Johnson) is seen as the responsible one? That answer becomes clear in a sporadically amusing road-trip episode of Fox's New Girl (9/8c) that takes the roomies to Chicago to lay Nick's scoundrel of a dad (former guest star Dennis Farina) to rest. The formidable Margo Martindale (Justified, The Americans) presides over the ridiculous antics as Nick's gruff but needy mom, and cable clown Nick Kroll hams it up as his emotionally volatile brother. As usual, Schmidt (Max Greenberg) hijacks the proceedings with his death neuroses, and while he wonders "What's with this open casket thing?" it's his encounter with said coffin and its contents that provides the episode's biggest laughs.
Jamey Sheridan sure likes to play dad this TV season.
The Homeland star has been tapped as...
[WARNING: This story contains spoilers from the Season 2 finale of Homeland. Read at your own risk.]
There seemed to be one big question hanging over the second season of Homeland: Could Brody survive another year?
Whether this morbid outlook was derived purely from the story or from the producers' insistence that they almost killed off Brody at the end of Season 1, we may never know for sure. But just like a year ago, the Season 2 finale, "The Choice," was a bit of Homeland having its cake and eating it too...

Question: I've been a fan of Homeland since before the pilot even came out. I don't live a day without at least thinking about Homeland once. Even last week's episode, which was heavily criticized, coerced me to suspend my disbelief on some dangling plot devices due primarily to the deliciously long-awaited meeting of Carrie and her mortal enemy Abu Nazir. And yet, while this season has largely been about Brody's allegiances and double missions, the series for me has always been about Carrie Mathison and Claire Danes. Her character was developed in Season 1...
Exactly one week before the Season 2 launch of Showtime's Homeland, the freshman drama won four Emmys, including best drama series, snapping the four-year winning streak of AMC's Mad Men. "It has been the most outrageous three weeks of my professional life," co-creator Alex Gansa tells TVGuide.com. "It's been an unbelievable experience and doubly sweet because it was so unexpected. There is an angel on our shoulders somewhere. I don't know how we deserve it or why we have it, but we're so grateful."
The CW has released trailers for its new fall series, including Beauty and the Beast and Arrow, as well as previews for midseason shows The Carrie Diaries and Cult. Check out the videos below.
