'Arrow' star teases China White's surprise return

Kelly Hu as China White on "Arrow."

Watch your back, Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell): Triad assassin China White (Kelly Hu) is returning to Starling City.

"I just did the reading for the next episode," Hu told The Clicker from Vancouver, where the CW's hit comic-book adaptation is filmed. "There's so many twists and turns!"

"There are so many surprises that I was sitting at the reading -- it was the first time I'd heard it --  gasping at people appearing and people who are going to be in danger," she said.

Without revealing specific details about the reunion between the villainess and the vigilante, Hu warned, "Just when you think you know what's going on, you don't."

One thing we can always count on are Amell's legendary abs -- with which Hu has had firsthand experience. "He was completely clothed," Hu shared about seeing the actor again at the latest reading. "The first thing I did was rub my hand on his stomach."

"It was like real washboard!" she marveled. "He wasn't even expecting me to touch him so he wasn't flexing and it was like a washboard. I couldn't help myself," she said, laughing. "I could not possibly be the only person to do that."

Catch "Arrow" -- and Stephen Amell's amazing abs -- Wednesdays at 8 p.m. on the CW.
