When "Arrow" Season 2 returns with its first new episode of 2014, "Blast Radius," Oliver and the rest will need to deal with deadly explosions and even deadlier betrayal. A new bad guy, Shrapnel ( Sean Maher), is in town, while Sebastian Blood ( Kevin Alejandro) moves closer to his political goals.

Photos from the episode give a hint about what's to come.

It's a safe bet that Oliver (Stephen Amell) doesn't know anything about Blood's alter ego, not when he's endorsing the politician for mayor.

arrow-blast-radius-cw-2-oliver-thea.jpgAs for Laurel ( Katie Cassidy), well ... She's at the party for Blood anyway.

arrow-blast-radius-cw-3-oliver-laurel.jpgOliver is such a fan, in fact, that he even pays Blood a visit in the Arrow costume.

arrow-blast-radius-cw-4-oliver-stephen-amell.jpgBlood isn't quite as thrilled about this, of course. You aren't generally, when the man you tried to kill comes calling.
