Thea Queen Returns As Speedy In New Arrow Promo


With all the hoopla surrounding Colton Haynes’ highly anticipated return to Arrow, it’s quite easy to place much focus on his character of Roy Harper. That aside, it looks like next week’s episode will boast even more reason to get us geeked.

We say that because Thea Queen will once again don her Speedy threads, something she hasn’t done very often since “retiring” from the vigilante lifestyle after season 4. To be honest, I’m always glad to see whenever she fails to kick the old habit because she isn’t really given much to do these days – and because her costume is so badass. Granted, actress Willa Holland has been on the show in a reduced capacity for season 5 and 6, but you have to admit that her character has just kind of “been there,” if you will.

Of course, her putting the costume back on likely has everything to do with Roy Harper being back in town for unknown reasons, but it remains to be seen if her former flame will put on his old hood as well. Nothing is for certain at this point, but it would sure make fans go nuts if he were to.
