Reported by Outsiders - 10:33 AM 2012.11.28
Before I forget, I just wanted to announce that the CW has confirmed that Arrow will be scheduled for 23 episodes this season. Not bad for a first season show...
The other piece of news is Zap2It
has confirmed that David Anders is next in line to rumble with Oliver Queen and will make his appearance in episode 13, "Betrayal." Anders will play a character by the name of Cyrus Vanch, a new threat to Starling City. 'Vanch is a ruthless career criminal who is released from prison after a long stint. Of course, as soon as he's got his freedom, he goes right back to his nefarious ways. Laurel (Katie Cassidy) is particularly invested in taking Vanch down. When she discovers that the police can't get him off the streets, she turns to the Arrow for help. Unfortunately, the cunning Vanch is one step ahead of them -- he's looking to take control of Starling City's criminal underworld, and in order to prove himself to the lowlifes, he's got a mind to eliminate the man criminals fear most.'
The episode is set to air after the mid-season break.
