Some new story details have finally filtered out about the back half of Arrow season two, and it sounds like one of our favorite baddies is heading back to Starling City.

The network has let loose the synopsis for “Tremors,” the 12th episode of the season, set to air Jan. 29. So what’s going on? For one thing, clawed villain Bronze Tiger (Michael Jai White) will be pulling a prison escape in an effort to steal Malcolm Merlyn's earthquake machine, which leveled half the city last season. Uh-oh.

We didn’t get to see much of Bronze Tiger when he was introduced earlier this season, so hopefully we’ll get a chance to dig into the badass assassin a little more this time around. He definitely put up a good fight with Arrow, and hey, who doesn’t love those claws? It’s also interesting that the earthquake machine will be back in play. Hmm, could this have anything to do with a certain psychopath’s recent reappearance?

Check out the synopsis below and let us know what you think:

“Tremors”: Arrow (Stephen Amell) offers to train Roy (Colton Haynes) so he can learn to control his newfound super-strength. However, Roy is a rebellious student and refuses to listen unless Arrow reveals his true identity, which Oliver refuses to do. Meanwhile, the Bronze Tiger (guest star Michael Jai White) escapes from prison and steals Malcolm’s earthquake machine to sell to the highest bidder. Oliver, Diggle (David Ramsey) and Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) attempt to stop the transfer, but Roy gets in the way, putting everyone in danger. Laurel (Katie Cassidy) is disbarred and spirals out of control. Moira (Susanna Thompson) is thrilled when Walter (guest star Colin Salmon) asks her to dinner, but his reason surprises her. Thea (Willa Holland) encourages her mother to ask Walter to reconcile. Guy Bee directed the episode written by Marc Guggenheim & Drew Z. Greenberg. 

In case anyone needs a refresher on what kind of badness that earthquake machine can crank out, here's a clip from last season's finale:
