Arrow - Updated Information & Images About The Upcoming 'Vertigo' Episode

Reported by Outsiders - 2013.01.16

Back in November, we reported that Seth Gabel would be playing the role of Vertigo in CW's Arrow. We now have some updated information and images about the episode and the character, thanks to TVGuide.

Vertigo will make his appearance on the upcoming Wednesday, January 30th episode, titled "Vertigo." The first set of changes his the name as the character will be called 'The Count' and is more based on DC Comics' supervillain Count Vertigo. The drug that The Count is pushing is called Vertigo and when Thea (Willa Holland) falls victim to it, Oliver (Stephen Amell) will go after the man himself.

"What gets Oliver into The Count's orbit and puts the two of them in conflict is actually a really personal motivation," executive producer Marc Guggenheim told sources. "Someone close to him is actually hurt by The Count. This is the first time the Arrow goes after someone purely out of revenge. There's argument to be made that the Arrow's general mission is one of vengeance, but this is very specific. This time, it's personal."

Guggenheim didn't want to give too much away about The Count except the character has a lot of flair. "The fun thing about The Count is he's actually a businessman. He's got a little bit of a sociopathic streak in him, for sure, but he sees himself as an entrepreneur, as creating not drugs, but art. He compares his drug to performing a social service and to a fine wine, so he has a very skewed view of what it is that he does. At the same time, we know that he's not only sociopathic, but he's very sadistic as well."
