The promo for next week’s Arrow episode 1×07 “Muse of Fire” has been released by The CW. This episode will feature DC Comics villain The Huntress.

This episode is the introduction of Helena Bertinelli, better known as The Huntress. Bertinelli is the daughter of mob-boss Frank Bertinelli (played by Jeffrey Nordling). Tahmoh Penikett, of Battlestar Galactica and Dollhouse fame, was cast as Frank Bertinelli’s right-hand-man.

It appears Oliver will fall for Helena Bertinelli’s charms, and you know it never goes well when the superhero (whether Oliver likes to be called one or not) falls in love with his enemy.

The stills and synopsis for “Muse of Fire” were also recently released. Here they are again for quick reference:
