Colton Haynes is coming back to Star City, and we’ve got mixed feelings. Very mixed feelings.
Because yes, we love Roy Harper. We adore Colton Haynes. It was a joy to have him back for a few episodes of Season 6. We wish he’d never left. But also …he left to be with Thea. He got the one thing characters on this show rarely do, a happily ever after, with the love of his life. And now …that’s ruined? Out the window? Hello Roy, but no Thea?
Why, Arrow? Why? Why must you give us one bad news and one good one?
“We’re very fortunate and excited to welcome back Colton to Arrow. While we’ve always enjoyed Colton’s returns to the show, we couldn’t be more thrilled to have him return as a proper series regular, and we’re very excited about all the creative opportunities Roy Harper’s return affords us,” the Arrow exec producers said in a joint statement, according to THR.
So, what do you think? Are you happy that Roy is back? Are you confused as to how they’re gonna pull this off? Are you just fed up with this show? Share with us in the comments below!
Arrow airs Thursdays at 9/8c on the CW.
