"[He is] going to present Oliver with a new problem, because it's the first time his actions have possibly caused things to get worse," Kreisberg told TVLine.

In an early 2013 Arrow episode, Gabel's character will use the 'Vertigo' drug to disorient and unbalance his victims.

"[Oliver] will have turned this somewhat minor drug dealer into a real force of destruction," Kreisberg explained, going on to praise Gabel's portrayal.

"He's phenomenal in the part," said the exec producer. "The dailies are just blowing us away."
