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:

Iwan Rheon has been cast as Maximus in Marvel’s upcoming ABC series, Inhumans.

Iwan Rheon will star as Maximus, an integral member of the Inhuman royal family. As the brother of the Inhuman king Black Bolt, Maximus holds considerable power in the alien city of Attilan. Charming and clever, he is exceptionally loyal to his people.

But unsurprisingly to those familiar with Rheon’s body of work, Maximus also hides darker ambitions — including taking the throne from Black Bolt.

Iwan Rheon has been cast as Maximus in Marvel’s upcoming ABC series, Inhumans.

Iwan Rheon will star as Maximus, an integral member of the Inhuman royal family. As the brother of the Inhuman king Black Bolt, Maximus holds considerable power in the alien city of Attilan. Charming and clever, he is exceptionally loyal to his people.

But unsurprisingly to those familiar with Rheon’s body of work, Maximus also hides darker ambitions — including taking the throne from Black Bolt.

Iwan Rheon is best known for his terrifying turn as Ramsay Bolton in HBO’s Game of Thrones. He has starred in the British series Misfits and Vicious, and may never play a hero again in his life.

Marvel’s head of television Jeph Loeb, who also serves as an executive producer on Inhumans, suggests that those villainous skills will be well-deployed in the role of Maximus.

“Iwan’s ability to be charming, roguish, and still completely unexpectedly dangerous were all the different sides we needed to bring the character to life,” Loeb says. “We’re thrilled to have him on board.”

Showrunner Scott Buck agrees.

“Maximus is a complex character. Likable, charming, tragic and villainous all in the same moment,” he says, “And I’m very excited to have someone of Iwan’s considerable talent.”

Marvel’s Inhumans will be produced in partnership with IMAX. The first two episodes will screen in IMAX theaters before the show’s network debut in mid September. Spanning the course of eight episodes, the series will tell the story of the Inhuman royal family, with the associated drama that just happens when you’re a family of aliens with magical powers trying to rule a secret city.

A leaked cast list for Inhumans hinted at a complex lineup of characters, including Black Bolt’s wife Medusa and her sister Crystal. Karnak, as well as the three-legged horse Gorgon and amphibious Triton round out the eclectic cast. And with Iwan Rheon in place as Maximus, it seems like just a matter of time before the rest of the family falls into line.

Why you should be watching ‘The Missing’

3:00 pm EST, February 20, 2017

If I had to describe The Missing in one word, it would be novelistic. The story is something very much like a novel, each episode puts you one chapter deeper into the mystery. Just like a novel you cannot put down, this show is the ultimate binge watch.

Overview

The first season of The Missing follows a British couple whose son is kidnapped in a small town in France. Season 2 takes the same detective (and only connection from one season to the other) to Germany where a teen girl suddenly reappears after being kidnapped 11 years earlier.

Along with the riveting plots and twists of this show, here are some other reasons you should check it out:

Overview

The first season of The Missing follows a British couple whose son is kidnapped in a small town in France. Season 2 takes the same detective (and only connection from one season to the other) to Germany where a teen girl suddenly reappears after being kidnapped 11 years earlier.

Along with the riveting plots and twists of this show, here are some other reasons you should check it out:

Multiple time lines

Why keep it simple when we can jump forwards and backwards in time? The Missing is a big fan of telling the story out of order, which only allows for more guessing, more cliffhangers, and more opportunity to throw us off its track.

As complicated and heart wrenching missing persons cases are, to only tell the story during one stretch of time would minimize it. Season 1 is able to jump between timelines showing how the kidnapping of their son tore a couple apart and became the obsession for the husband.

Season 2 takes it a step further and jumps between a handful of timelines, and countries. The novelistic feel this show presents shines through these multiple timelines by not giving us clues immediately, but rather slowly unraveling it all.

Diversity in countries and languages

Yes, there are subtitles for non-French/German/any language other than English, but The Missing mixes it in well enough where it isn’t too often. It’s refreshing to see a mystery unravel over a variety of countries and cities. It complicates the story just enough where guessing the perpetrator isn’t too easy.

It’s visually enticing

Creators (and brothers) Harry and Jack Williams wrote both seasons, and chose to keep the same director for all episodes of each season. This ties the story together visually. Season 2 primarily takes place in Germany, in the middle of winter, while also taking a side trip to Iraq. Although two completely different countries visually, the juxtaposition of the two blends perfectly. From Iraq where it is a fast pace danger of being in a war zone, to a quiet but painful Germany.

Season 2 of The Missing is currently airing on Starz
