‘Arrow’ Preview: Oliver Gets “Burned” By Firefly
Only two weeks ago 'Arrow' closed out its stellar 2012 run with "Year's End," and the wait until new episodes begin January 16 seems a dozen archery ranges away. 'Arrow's return episode "Burned" will see Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) tangling with a disgraced firefighter known to DC comics fans as the burning villain Firefly, but what do the new promos from 'Arrow's 2013 premiere reveal? Get a first look at Firefly inside!
The last few episodes of 'Arrow' certainly heated things up, but none more-so than when Firefly comes to Starling City. Stargate: Universe’ star Andrew Dunbar will take the role of the fiery villain, set to appear in the series’ 10th episode "Burned," airing January 16.
According to the original report, "Burned" will see the vigilante introduced to former firefighter “Garfield,” a man so horribly burned by a tragic accident that his resulting rage cost him his wife and children, making him a “bitter, vengeful shell of a man.” Equally distraught by Garfield’s fall from grace is the Starling City fire chief, who was forced to abandon his former colleague in the fateful blaze years ago..
The latest promo from the CW doesn't give us the clearest picture of the villain (we're guessing the man in full fire gear), but certainly seems to put all of Oliver's loved ones in peril, particularly with Oliver still shaken from his encounter with the "Dark Archer."
