'Arrow' Season 2: 5 Spoilers You Need To Know

October 8th, 2013 3:10pm EDT

Supernatural The CW's freshman drama "Arrow" found a perfect balance between the sensational (shirtless work-out scenes, anyone?) and the super. When we last saw Starling City, it had been rocked by the Undertaking and Tommy's death. "Arrow" returns to The CW on Oct. 9 at 8/7c, so here are five spoilers you need to know...

Laurel and Oliver are on shaky ground. Pun completely intended. Laurel (Katie Cassidy) and Oliver (Stephen Amell) finally reunited just before the catastrophe of the Undertaking killed their best friend, Tommy. In season 2, Laurel has taken a job at the D.A.'s office, and has vowed to capture the archer, according to The District Attorney himself may also win Laurel's affections. The only way I see that happening is if he has a 12 pack of solid golden abs.

While Laurel is away, Felicity will play... Olicity fans may want to prepare themselves for a season of feels. Our favorite plucky hacker Emily Bett Rickards) will spend much of the season as we do, admiring Oliver's fine bod, but it also seems like she has been upgraded to sidekick status.

Summer comes to Starling City. All hail the sci-fi queen! Summer Glau joins the cast as Isabel, a high-ranking executive for a company looking to acquire the now-ruined Queen Consolidated, reports. I'm betting there's some sort of spandex beneath those pants suits!

Arrows and Villians and Tigers, oh my! reveals that Michael Jai White will play the Bronze Tiger, a member of the Suicide Squad. The fanboys can rest easy as Arrow's EP Mark Guggenheim promises that the Bronze Tiger "is a really great representation of this DC Comics character." The Bronze Tiger and his alter ego Ben Turner make their debut in Arrow's second episode airing on Oct. 16.

Diggle gets stuck on the island?! Check out his sneak peek that finds Diggle and Felicity on Lian Yu aka the nightmarish island where Oliver was a captive for five years.
"Arrow's" second season begins on Oct. 9 at 8/7c.
