The CW has released the first official images from next Wednesday’s episode of Arrow, and by far the biggest reveal is the fact that Colton Haynes is back not just as Roy Harper, but as Arsenal, too. When we last saw him, the young hero had faked his death to protect the Green Arrow’s secret identity, passing on his bow to Thea Queen. There’s no sign of her here though, which does lead to a lot of interesting questions.
For further details on what to expect from this episode of Arrow (titled “Unchained”), here’s the official synopsis, courtesy of the network:
ROY HARPER RETURNS; NYSSA MAKES HER MOVE — The team faces off against a formidable villain nicknamed The Calculator (guest star Tom Amandes). Meanwhile, Nyssa (guest star Katrina Law) makes her move and Roy Harper (guest star Colton Haynes) returns to Star City. Kevin Fair directed the episode written by Speed Weed & Beth Schwartz.
While we don’t get to see Nyssa in the photos, we do see Star City’s new mayoral candidate, the wife of Damien Darhk. That’s going to make Oliver Queen’s life even more difficult, and it will no doubt be interesting to see how she factors into her husband’s mysterious plan to seemingly end both the city and the world.
