Rookie Blue star Gregory Smith is stepping behind the camera for Wednesday's Arrow, marking a reunion for the former Everwood star and its creator, Greg Berlanti.
Smith, who played teen Ephram Brown on The WB series from 2002-06, credits Arrow executive producer Berlanti with giving him the directing bug, and is stepping into Starling City for one of the biggest episodes of the season.

Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) made a dramatic return from the dead in Wednesday's Arrow.
Oliver made his way back from oversees, and delivered a dramatic speech after convincing Merlyn (John Barrowman) to spare Brick's (Vinnie Jones) life, even though the gangster was responsible for the death of Merlyn's wife.
Brick (Vinnie Jones) isn't done with Starling City just yet.
The criminal mastermind has terrorized the world of Arrow for two episodes, puling such ambitious villain moves as taking over The Glades, kidnapping government officials and giving Laurel (Katie Cassidy) a beating (even though he doesn't "like to hit" women.)

Arrow is back in a big way.
Team Arrow learned the sad truth about Oliver's (Stephen Amell) demise at the hands of Ra's Al Ghul (Matt Nable). To add insult to injury, the bringer of the bad news was the man who orchestrated the whole thing, Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman). Unbeknownst to them, Oliver is alive (if not well).
The network used its platform at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour to announce an early renewals for eight series: Arrow, Jane the Virgin, Reign, Supernatural, The 100, The Flash, The Originals and The Vampire Diaries.
