…and it will hopefully by to take Thea away with him.
The Arrow team just got dealt a pretty big shake up. I’m not even talking about Oliver retiring and Diggle taking over as the hood for a couple of days until his injuries sidelined him, I’m talking about the recent betrayal at the hands of one of their teammates. Now, it looks like they’ll be getting a visit from one of their oldest teammates, Roy Harper.
That’s right, Colton Haynes is making his return to the series, but from the sounds of it, he won’t be sticking around very long. Here’s what show producers Marc Guggenheim and Wendy Mericle had to say in a statement on the upcoming episode:
“We’re thrilled to announce that Colton Haynes will be reprising his role as Roy Harper.” Roy is called back to Star City to help resolve an urgent matter with high stakes for the team. His short visit turns into something surprising when he reunites with Thea and sparks a change in both of their lives that will have long-lasting consequences…”
What could this spark be? Maybe Thea will take on the Speedy/ Red Arrow mantle, or maybe she’ll leave with Roy at the end of the episode. It wouldn’t be a bad plan, considering the show doesn’t seem to know exactly what to do with her.
