Arrow returns with new episodes on March 20 and, at some point, fans can expect Haynes' Harper to transition to his superhero persona, Speedy.

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

There are people in this world who deal only in extremes. It's naive to think that anything less than extreme measures will stop them.


Laurel: Helena, you don't have to do this.
Helena: Yes, I do. Because once you let the darkness inside, it never comes out.
