Looks like Arrow has a new partner-in-crime -- and not just in his fight for justice.

In a short preview released for an episode called “Vendetta,” airing tonight at 7 p.m. ET on CTV, we see our green-hooded hero teaming up (and smooching) his new friend Helena (The Huntress).

“Don’t lie to me, Oliver. We’re the same, you and I,” she says.

“It’s not justice,” he replies, as we see the Huntress pointing a gun and fighting someone.

“And what you do, is?” she retorts.

Oliver (Stephen Amell) says he wants to show her how what he does is different and takes it upon himself to teach her how to hold a bow and arrow. 

He met Helena (guest star Jessica De Gouw) on last week’s episode and found out she has it out for her mobster father because he had her fiancée killed.

But not everyone is happy Arrow has a new ally. Diggle (David Ramsey) has serious concerns about the pair’s new friendship as he isn’t sure Helena can be trusted.

According to an interview Ramsey did with The Huffington Post, this will only add to the conflict Diggle and Arrow already share about the best way to bring justice to Starling City.

“Helena fits right into the philosophical challenges that these two men have in terms of who deserves justice and who doesn’t. Helena is another lightening rod between these two gentlemen,” Ramsey told the site.

“Diggle has his own idea about who Helena is and how she should be dealt with. Oliver, because of where he is in his life, what he’s suffering from -- and we saw in the last episode how kindred of spirits they are -- I think Diggle sees that as clouding his judgment.”

But it looks like Arrow isn’t listening as we see him and the Huntress holding hands and sharing a kiss.

“This feels good,” she says.

Maybe mixing business and pleasure isn’t such a bad idea, after all.
