Arrow is about to get some more help. Some new promo shots from an upcoming episode of The CW's Arrow have been released, showing fellow DC hero Huntress (Jessica De Gouw) kicking some butt with Starling City's main masked protector.

The grounded superhero series has been a ratings smash for the network, and the addition of Huntress is one of the first big moves into the DC canon of heroes. We've seen several comic-based baddies to this point, but this is one of the first times Arrow (Stephen Amell) will have a little help from a fellow hero (not counting Diggle's brief time in the green leather suit).

These new promo shots come from episode eight of the first season, dubbed "Vendetta," which will find Oliver growing very close to Helena.

Here's the episode synopsis:

As Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Helena (guest star Jessica De Gouw) grow closer, Oliver trains her to be his ally, complete with showing her how to use a crossbow. Diggle (David Ramsey) disapproves of Oliver sharing his secret with Helena as he's not sure she can be trusted, but Oliver refuses to listen to his concerns. Helena's quest for revenge proves to be too strong for Oliver to handle after she kills the head of the Triad and all hell breaks loose.
