“Arrow” is about to face one of its deadliest foes yet again. The Count (Seth Gabel) — purveyor of the lethal drug, Vertigo — escapes from Iron Heights prison in the upcoming “State vs. Queen” episode.

Watch this exclusive clip for a sneak peek of the horrors of the Count.

Based on the video, it actually seems like the Count’s escape occurred on the night of the Glades earthquake. The walls shake and crumble, knocking open his cell door in the process. Unfortunately for the other prisoners, his is the only cell to open. And the Count is rather picky when it comes to criminals littering the streets.

In fact, the only criminal to get away with the Count seems to be that Dollmaker guy from a few episodes back.

This escape brings up an important question: Why is the Count’s freedom only becoming known now? Did the police choose to cover up yet another criminal let loose in the destruction?

Even more important — what has the Count been doing over the past several months. The answer cannot be good.

The “State vs. Queen” episode of “Arrow” airs Wednesday, Nov. 19 at 8 p.m. on The CW.
