Guys….brace yourself for color red…as Arsenal/Roy Harper is returning to Star city. Well, this is one good news for the next season of Arrow that everyone probably will welcome with open arms.
Although, the network hasn’t officially announced his presence for the second half of the season 5, but it seems legit as Mr. Haynes didn’t disclose this piece of information in jest. On twitter, one of Arrow fans said the show is incomplete without him, and Colton Haynes apparently responded: “I will be back”. He took the fall for Green Arrow, escaped Starling city after faking his death and then he re-appeared for few episodes in season 4 where he was forced to carry out burglaries in tech companies by the “Calculator” (Felicity’s father). It was a great reunion of sorts of the old team of vigilantes until he left again. He was a series regular from season 1 to season 3, he is likely to guest appear for few episodes in the next season to drive a particular narrative forward and then again fade into oblivion. He is most likely to come for Thea’s storyline, in the last season we saw she embraced her dark side and went as further as threatening to kill a kid. Roy Harper helped her deal with her blood lust and he can come back to motivate her to get back in the game.
What should we really expect from Roy Harper? Does it serve any point to bring Colton Haynes as a filler? Well, according to credible sources, he is most likely be making a guest appearance. We know that he keeps contact with the Team Arrow as he knew about Felicity’s paralysis when Damien Darhk sent his men to kill her. He may be brought in if there is an alarming situation caused by Prometheus, or it could just be a flashback scene. Let’s wait and watch.
