Arrow Season 3: Cupid Takes Aim!

at .  Updated at .

The Arrow is about to get his first fan, and she's crazy and lethal.

According to EW, Supernatural alum (she played Sam and Dean's mom!) Amy Gumenick nabbed the role of Carrie Cutter in Arrow Season 3. Cutter's alias is Cupid. 

Amy Gumenick

Arrow executive producer Andrew Kreisberg created the character while he was writing for the Green Arrow/Black Canary comic book series.

He always imagined what fun it would be for Arrow to have a crazed fan and to create a villain who would last. (Maybe this is a hint she'll be a recurring baddie!)

Of course, any fan of the Arrow will be of the killing kind so her obsessive crush will be uniquely dangerous. Cupid usually shoots the arrows, so it's easy to understand her attraction (as if it's the arrows we love...).

This news came right after we learned Nathan Funk had been cast as Felicity's ex, so a lot of heart-pounding thrills are lined up for the coming season!

Arrow Quotes

Oliver: I just need your A game right now Felicity.
Felicity: I don't have it! My friend, our friend, was shot with arrows and fell off of a rooftop. Her body is upstairs right above us in a freezer because we don't know what to do with it, with her, so I am so sorry, Oliver, if I have feelings, but maybe if you did, too... I'm sorry. That was mean. But this is Sara we're talking about. Your Sara. How can you stand there being so cold and rational?
Oliver: Because I don't have the luxury of falling to pieces. Everyone is looking to me to handle things, to make the right decisions. Everyone is looking to me to lead. If I grieve, nobody else gets to.

Oliver: John, I don't want to die down here.
Diggle: So don't, Oliver.
