Cayden James has a plan for the Bertinelli family's docks. In a CBR-exclusive clip from "Divided," tonight's midseason return episode of Arrow, James and his partners Black Siren and the Dragon pay Jerry Bertinelli a visit to demand the family business. Of course, a kingpin like Bertinelli isn't very interested in losing his hold on Star City -- until Black Siren blows him a kiss, that is.
James' pursuit of Bertinelli's docks may be indicative of his larger plans for Star City. After all, the midseason trailer for Arrow Season 6 revealed that James is gunning for control of the city’s entire infrastructure.
If the name Bertinelli sounds familiar, that's because the crime family was a key part of Season 1. Oliver Queen himself even dated a member of the family for a few episodes: Helena. Helena, of course, went on to become the vigilante Huntress so that she could exact revenge on her family for killing her fiance. As Huntress, Helena was able to damage her father's business, though it seems as though she was unable to completely eradicate it from Star City.
