Ya might wanna sit down for this one, Arrow fans. TV Guide Magazine has learned exclusively that the CW show — which is already exceeding its hot limit with Stephen Amell, Katie Cassidy and Colin Donnell — has just hit a major bull's eye by signing Teen Wolf alum...
Stephen Amell and Jessica De Gouw
Arrow's endgame may involve Oliver ending up with Laurel, but that doesn't mean he can't find a little loving before then.
In fact, Oliver (Stephen Amell) may find what he's looking for in Helena Bertinelli (Jessica De Gouw), the daughter of a mob boss (Jeffrey Nordling) who seeks to avenge her family's murder. But sparring with The Huntress is on the lower end of Oliver's list of priorities, which includes dealing withVertigo (Fringe's Seth Gabel), who was rumored to be Season 1's big bad.

However, executive producer Andrew Kreisberg insists that someone else is actually the big villain of Season 1. Could that have anything to with the fact that the identity of John Barrowman's character will be revealed in Wednesday's episode (8/7c, CW)? Check out what Kreisberg has to say below:

Oliver is in troooouble!
Arrow's titular superhero found himself on the wrong side of the law last week after being arrested by Detective Lance (Paul Blackthorne), who suspects that he is the vigilante who has been plaguing Starling City. Of course, Lance is totally right, but he'll have to prove it first.
This is where Laurel (Katie Cassidy) will step in to represent Oliver (Stephen Amell) — and she'll have her work cut out for her in the courtroom, going up against Kate Spencer (Chelah Horsdal). Yes, that Kate Spencer.

How will this case change the dynamic between the duo? TVGuide.com asked Cassidy what's in store for Laurel and Oliver and when we'll get to meet her Black Canary.
Oliver keeps pushing Laurel away, only to bring her back in. Do you think she could ever really forgive him?
Katie Cassidy: If anyone could forgive...
No one on Arrow is more terrifying than Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell). After five years stranded on an island, the so-called hero has returned to civilization a changed man. The once frivolous playboy is now a vengeful assassin with the morals of fictional serial killer Dexter Morgan and the eyes of a taxidermied wolf. This is supposed to be Starling City's savior?
That didn't take long!
Arrow's titular character has already been unmasked! After Oliver's bodyguard Diggle (David Ramsey) was hit by one of Deadshot's poisonous bullets, Oliver (Stephen Amell) was forced to bring him back to the foundry and show Diggle his true identity at the close of last week's episode. That's exactly where Wednesday's episode (8/7c, The CW) will pick up.
Connor Paolo and Taylor Momsen
Could Little J and Eric be returning for a family reunion on the Gossip Girl series finale? It sure looks that way!
Kelly Rutherford tweeted a photo of Taylor Momsen and Revenge's Connor Paolo from the set Tuesday. "My...
How far will one superhero go for justice? That's the question that Arrow will toy with now that Oliver Queen has returned to Starling City.

In the new CW series, the wealthy playboy (Stephen Amell) returned to his hometown with his secret alter ego Arrow in tow, the vigilante identity he took on after a boating accident left him stranded on a deserted island for five years where he honed his archery skills to survive. Now Oliver will have to determine how far he'll go in his quest for vengeance, which will become even more difficult once someone learns his secret. (Yup, it's happening soon!) To get the scoop on that and more, TVGuide.com turned to Amell and co-star Katie Cassidy, along with executive producers Andrew Kreisberg, Marc Guggenheim and Greg Berlanti. Find out what's in store for the emerald archer:
Katie Cassidy will return to Gossip Girl for The CW soap's final episode, TVGuide.com has confirmed.

Though the TV season is already a few weeks old, tonight counts as one of the biggest rollouts of fall, with three high-profile premieres on three networks, including my favorite pilot of an admittedly anemic batch.
Even in a better season, ABC's Nashville (10/9c) would stand out, making beautiful music and juicy drama with its sensationally entertaining medley of backstage rivalries, family and political shenanigans, and enough sexy-sudsy twists to transform Music City into Sin City. Can you enjoy Nashville if country music isn't your thing?
There's nothing super about Stephen Amell.
That is to say, he doesn't have X-ray vision, super strength or the ability to fly, and yet on Wednesday night, he'll have the power to captivate an audience of comic book aficionados and salivating fangirls alike when he debuts as the star of Arrow — and for The CW, that's one hell of a superpower.
Like Smallville's Tom Welling before him, the 31-year-old Canadian actor is about to fill some large shoes by bringing one of DC Comics' Justice League members to life. For Amell, it's the Green Arrow, a superhero without the super.
Arrow Bosses: We're taking the super out of superhero
Amell plays Oliver Queen, a wealthy playboy who survives a boating accident that leaves him stranded on a deserted island for five years. While there, he hones his archery skills to survive, birthing his alter ego, Arrow. Upon his return, he'll have his work cut out for him as he attempts to clean up Starling City (yes, it's not called Star City) and right his family's wrongs.
In that same vein, Amell has his work cut out for him, following in the footsteps of Justin Hartley, who recently portrayed the Green Arrow on Smallville. But Amell insists that there will be few, if any, similarities to that other CW superhero series. Below, Amell shares his thoughts on taking on the role and what's in store for DC Comics fans and newbies alike:
