Below is the press release:

BARRY ALLEN COMES TO STARLING CITY — A seemingly impossible robbery at Queen Consolidated’s Applied Sciences Division brings Central City police scientist Barry Allen (guest star Grant Gustin) to town. Citing a similar case back home, Barry offers to help Oliver (Stephen Amell) and team with the investigation. Oliver senses there is more to Barry than meets the eye, but he’s distracted by the similarities between this current case and something that happened on the island. Meanwhile, Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) takes a liking to Barry, which doesn’t go unnoticed by Oliver. Sin (guest star Bex Taylor-Klaus) asks Roy (Colton Haynes) for help when a friend of hers goes missing. Roy is surprised when Thea (Willa Holland) not only encourages him to help, but joins the search. Unfortunately, Sin’s friend is connected to Brother Blood (guest star Kevin Alejandro), and their search ultimately gets one of them seriously injured. Michael Schultz directed the episode with story by Greg Berlanti & Andrew Kresiberg and teleplay by Andrew Kreisberg & Geoff Johns (#208).

Interviews With Summer Keep Coming

Summer as Isabel Rochev in ArrowYet another interview with Summer has been published. This time she spoke to TVLine about tonights episode of Arrow, the different relationships, suspicion and two parties that might end up in the bedroom. As always, check out the excerpt below and the full interview on TVLine.

TVLINE | Why do she and Oliver lock horns this time around? She’s been trying to assert her place in the company, and he’s gone and scheduled this supposed business trip to Russia – but she absolutely cannot let him go without her. So they get to Russia and since they’re not in the office, there’s more opportunity for them to get to know each others’ personality. Maybe things get revealed that otherwise would never have a chance to surface? TVLINE | What, does she suspect they have more than a professional relationship going on…? She’s going to turn up the heat on those two. She knows that there’s something going on…. I don’t want t give too much away about future episodes, Keep Your Enemies Closerbut she’s going to keep pushing. She wants to be in control. TVLINE | Did you get a chance to bust out some Russian? I did! Not as much as Stephen [Amelll], but yes, I do speak a little Russian. But I think he’s better at it than me – which is hard for me to admit! TVLINE | The promo that’s out there would suggest that in addition to coming to appreciate Oliver’s boardroom skills, this is the week Isabel becomes privy to his bedroom skills. [Laughs] Well, a lady doesn’t talk about such things, and Isabel is a lady, soooo… I’m going to keep that a secret. But Oliver does have a way with the ladies. I’m sure there will be complications. TVLINE | In the promo, I can’t tell if Isabel’s look is come hither or “Catch you later.” Maybe a little bit of both…. TVLINE | How many episodes do we have you for? I was originally asked to do three, and now I’ve done… five? So it’s open. I love the cast and I think the show is beautifully done, so I’m game.

Update: Summer as Isabel RochevAnother interview with Summer showed up on the internet. She talked with EW about Isabel’s trip to Russia, her character’s comic book back story, and any potential for Isabel to get in on the lethal action.

You mentioned getting into her back story. Is that going to come at us flashback-style? She’s in the comics, so was there anything that really shocked you about her story? Well it’s a slow burn right now. Andrew [Kreisberg] is really, really good at keeping these things secret, because I think they’re very spontaneous and very creative about how they unveil each character’s storyline, so I don’t know exactly how they’re going to tell Isabel’s back story, because right now, we’re just starting to reveal the basic premise of her back story. I love the character from the comic books, and I hope that they incorporate some of the qualities of Isabel in the comics, but right now, we’re just now starting to unveil the beginnings of it. I read an interview where you talked about loving the interaction between Isabel and Felicity, and Isabel maybe making Felicity jealous? One of the things that I really enjoyed when I first signed on to play Isabel was that both Andrew and Stephen [Amell] said that they liked the fact that Isabel was going to be a really, really different kind of female energy for Oliver. He has a lot of women in his life and a lot of different relationships that he has to work on and work through and deal with, and Isabel is very different from any of the other women. When Isabel comes in to the corporation and starts feeling things out, I think she gets the sense that Felicity has Oliver’s ear and that they have a special relationship. I think she’s suspicious of it, and she kind of wants to get in the middle. Emily and I are having fun playing around with how to express that part of the story. Do you feel it’s a romantic thing or a curiosity of what his relationship is with Felicity and how she can mess with it? I could not say. I have my suspicions, but I don’t want to give away anything regarding romance. You mentioned a mutual respect at this point between Isabel and Oliver, but in the comics, she wants to kill him. We know Isabel is fierce, but do you think Isabel could ever become lethal? I think it seems that everyone in Starling City gets involved at one time or another. They end up getting into the fray. So I absolutely think that Isabel is capable. It hasn’t gone the way that I expected it so far, so I don’t know how [Andrew] is going to do it. Right now, their relationship is getting more complicated.

Tidbits On Tonights Episode of Arrow

The guys from TVGuide have a few tidbits about tonights episode “Keep your Enemies Closer” of Arrow. It contains also a few infos about Isabel’s trip to Russia, the growing suspicion and her feelings towards Oliver. Below you can find the part about her. For the rest, follow the link to TVGuide.

But Oliver and Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) won’t be the only ones joining Diggle on his trip to Russia. Determined to assert her power over Queen Consolidated, Isabel Rochev (Summer Glau) will also tag along. “Isabel is really trying to establish her authority in the company,” Glau says. “She really doesn’t like being left out on any of his work trips. She feels like she needs to keep an eye on Oliver. At the last minute, he tries to sneak away without her knowing, but she seems to know more than she leads on.” Isabel will certainly be suspicious as to why Oliver is running off with his supposed assistant Felicity, but whether she believes Oliver is the Arrow remains to be seen. “She suspects he’s more than meets the eye,” she says. “She’s on to him, but he’s very smart and he’s very dedicated to keeping this secret, so he’s not making it easy for her.” Still, there could be more to Isabel’s quest for dominance as fans learn more about her backstory in upcoming episodes. “She has her reasons for wanting to take over this particular company and for wanting to assert her control and feeling like she needs to understand Oliver better,” Glau says. “Their relationship is definitely going to shift. I think she definitely has feelings for him. They’re complicated feelings. Sometimes she wants to reach across the table and strangle him, but she also has a growing respect for him.”

Arrow - Summer On Isabel’s Suspicions About Oliver

Another interview with Summer has been published, this time its with IGN. In the interview with Eric Goldman Summer talks about Isabel’s relationship to Oliver/Felicity, including the suspicions about Oliver’s secrets, Sean Maher’s guest appearance,the possibility of being Talia al Ghul and more. Check out the excerpt below and head over to IGN for the whole interview.

[…]IGN: You mentioned that Isabel is on to Oliver and senses something else is going on. Do you think she has specific ideas about that or it’s just that idea that “This guy is hiding something from me.” Glau: Well, another guy that’s hiding things from me is Andrew [Kreisberg, Arrow executive producer], because he won’t tell me anything else after this last episode that I just did. So I don’t know! I don’t know that she knows anything about what specifically Oliver is hiding, but she definitely is getting the picture that he’s not just a party boy. There’s something else going on and she wants to know what it is, because it’s threatening her control over the company. The audience is definitely going to get more clues about why she’s so passionate about Queen Consolidated in the first place - why it means so much to her. […] IGN: You’ve done a lot of genre shows and played characters that are very physically skilled. This is a superhero show, with people running around in costumes, but your character — at least right now — is not a part of that world. Are you just enjoying the change, or is there a part of you itching to run around those rooftops and get into some of the fight scenes? Glau: Yeah, it’s hard. I mean, I do miss it. I’m hoping that eventually Isabel will get involved somehow. Not in the way maybe that I have in the past, but I’m itching for her to find out more about what Oliver is up to when he’s not in the office and see how she reacts to that and what would happen. How that would change their dynamic and why… She obviously has some kind of connection to his past. I don’t know how Andrew is going to handle that in the storytelling on the show. […] IGN: Before we go, there’s a question a lot of fans are curious about. I don’t think the answer is yes, but I have to ask it… Now that they’ve mentioned Ra’s al Ghul and his child, people are speculating that Isabel is also Talia al Ghul. Anything you can say about that theory? Glau: I have heard that theory, but I don’t know… I really don’t know any of the secrets about what’s going to happen after this last episode that I was in. I wish I could help unveil some more secrets, but they keep them from me too![…]

Arrow - New Interview With Summer

Summer did a short interview with TVFanatic where she talks about the upcoming episodes of Arrow. She tells us about the challenges that come up with this role, the relationship to Oliver (Isabel is getting closer to Oliver) and Felicity and what lies ahead for her character. Find a short excerpt below and head over to TVFanatic for the rest.

[…]TVF: Speaking of looks, Isabel doesn’t really smile much or laugh. Do we get to see more of her personality in this episode? SG: I’m glad you asked me that. That’s my favorite part of this episode because you get to get a chance to open up and the audience is going to see another dimension of who Isabel is. There’s more there, for sure. […] TVF: How does she interact with Felicity in this week’s episode because Felicity is a very different kind of woman than Isabel? Is there a rivalry there? SG: I definitely have a lot of fun with it as Summer working with Emily. We have a great time together. But I think Isabel is somewhat suspicious of Felicity because throughout Oliver’s behavior, Felicity always seems to be there and Felicity has Oliver’s ear and she has Oliver’s back and I think Isabel wants to get in the middle of that and break it up. She doesn’t like feeling like she’s being left out. She doesn’t know what’s going on and I have a lot of fun playing the comedic side of that story. […] TVF: What are you hearing from fans since you started appearing on the show? SG: I don’t go on because I’m afraid that all the loyal fans of Felicity are just going to be ready to attack Isabel in the street.[…]
