this is great! i'm glad Colton Haynes has found a place thats welcomed him after teen wolf. This Arrow cast though ca not get any better. Although i wish they treated the guest stars a little better and made them more badss.


yes...i really wished he would stick around...i'm so happy right now!

Does this mean Roy Harper will be Speedy? Thea's middle name is Dearden as in Mia Dearden (the other Speedy in the comics). IDK? Maybe Roy will be Red Arrow and Thea will be Speedy.


That was rather fast. I wonder if that means they'll be pushing out a(n original) series regular by seasons end.

Arrow Quotes

Ra's al Ghul: You tasted death and you wanted more, but the truth is everyone and everything must come to an end. Even for one such as me.
Oliver: Kill me, but spare John Diggle's life. Let him go. I will beg for it.
Ra's al Ghul: You have shown tremendous strength, fortitude, power. No, Mr. Queen. I don't want to kill you. I want you to take my place. I want you to become the next Ra's al Ghul.

You know Oliver, somebody once told me that secrets have weight. The more you keep, the harder it is to keep moving.
