'Arrow': Pain Is The Game As Seth Gabel Brings Count Vertigo To Life (VIDEO)

Oliver Queen faced a new villain on "Arrow," and the villain survived! Not all of his comic book foes have been so fortunate, though it's possible that Count Vertigo may wish he was dead. The Count was the man behind the Vertigo drug hitting the streets of Starling City.

After infiltrating his drug ring, Oliver came face to face with The Count, played with reckless abandon by Seth Gabel ("Fringe"). The police intervened, though, and Oliver wound up with a vial full of The Count's special "pain" toxin. The pain was so agonizing that a man earlier in the episode committed suicide after only a few minutes of enduring it.

The toxin continued to effect Oliver throughout the episode, but he nevertheless tracked The Count down, and got the drop on him. Rather than take him out, he instead injected him with his own "pain" toxin. So while The Count lives to breathe another day, he may wish he was dead. And in police custody, he won't find an easy out, either.

The comic book adventures continue every Wednesday on The CW's "Arrow" at 8 p.m. EST.
