We finally get to see Colton Haynes‘ Roy Harper in this week’s ‘Arrow,’ titled “Dodger.”
The ‘Teen Wolf’ alum will arrive in Starling City on Wednesday and play a pickpocket named Roy Harper who naturally mixes things up with Oliver’s (Stephen Amell) kid sister, Thea (Willa Holland).
In the “Dodger” episode — featuring James Callis (Battlestar Galactica) as the jewel thief — Thea has her purse stolen while working with Laurel (Katie Cassidy) and eventually comes face-to-face with Roy, in the above and below images exclusive to The Hollywood Reporter.
Roy is further described as a handsome, street-savvy teen from the Glades, the poverty-stricken area of Starling City, who winds up being the object of affection for Thea, despite her own misgivings and those of her family. The character is “destined” to become a significant part of her life and an important player in the drama from Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim and Andrew Kreisberg’s world.
So, would Roy be taking over the nickname that Ollie gave his little sister in an earlier episode?
The pairing with Thea could bring the rookie series’ Speedy tally to two, should Roy ultimately prove to be the Arrow’s right-hand man.
