Hot Shots: Arrow Meets The Huntress

The DC Comics character known as The Huntress is on her way to Arrow‘s Starling City, and based on this bevy of photos, she and Oliver make a not-unattractive pair.

In keeping with one of the character’s DC iterations, The Huntress (played here by Jessica De Gouw) is the alter ego of Helena Bertinelli, daughter of mob boss Frank Bertinelli (24‘s Jeffrey Nordling). Oliver finds in Helena someone he can finally be himself with, yet soon comes to realize she’s hiding deadly secrets of her own — namely, her own personal mission of vengeance. De Gouw will appear in at least two episodes.

Also glimpsed in these photos from the episode “Muse of Fire,” airing Nov. 21 on The CW, is Battlestar alum Tahmoh Penikett, playing mob boss Bertinelli’s right-hand man.

  • *phew* I was worried they’d screw it up like they did the comic books “The Huntress (played here by Jessica De Gouw) is the alter ego of Helena Bertinelli, daughter of mob boss Frank Bertinelli (24‘s Jeffrey Nordling).”

  • Im a HUGE Arrow fan but I have not read any of the comics. Is Huntress a good or bad character in relation to Oliver?

    • somewhere in the middle, she’s technically a hero but she is quite ruthless

    • No, she’s not. Did you not read the last name?

      • ah, but in the comiccs now she is both. Helena Wayne from Earth 2 using the Helena Bertinelli name as an alias. it’s quite lame and unnecessarily complicated.

  • I’m excited to see Helena Bertinelli! If the writers are pushing Helena/Oliver, then I hope the actors have chemistry

  • I hope they won’t miss the opportunity to have her cross paths with Laurel! Stage a little Birds of Prey preunion… :)
