Peter Stormare will reprise his role as Vertigo in an upcoming episode of Arrow, EW has learned.

The Prison Break and Blacklist alum first made his debut in the season 3 premiere as Werner Zytle, a crime boss who took up the mantle of Vertigo after the death of Count Vertigo (Seth Gabel). The last we saw of Zytle, Oliver (Stephen Amell) had fought off the effects of the new Vertigo drug, which caused fear in its victims, and left Werner tied up for the police. Stormare will pop up again in episode 13, though details on his return are being kept under wraps.

“It’s a thrill to have Peter Stormare return as Vertigo,” executive producer Marc Guggenheim says. “When people see this episode, I think they’ll find that it’s a culmination of a lot of elements that we’ve put into place in the first 12 episodes of Season 3. For that reason, it felt appropriate to us to have Peter return since he was the villain of the episode that kicked off all of this madness. It’s also just a joy to work with him.”

Stormare is the latest in a long line of familiar faces returning this season, including Alex Kingston, Manu Bennett, Bex Taylor Klaus and Caity Lotz.

Arrow’s midseason finale airs Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
