Arrow sneak peek: That awkward moment when Speedy met Speedy

Tonight, Arrow tackles the tale of Speedy. It's the nickname of Thea Queen, but also Roy Harper. What happens when he gets thrown into the mix? In the Green Arrow comics, Harper dons the title and is Ollie's sidekick.

In the episode "Dodger," Colton Haynes (Teen Wolf) debuts as the troubled teen. He finds himself on the wrong side of the law after attempting to steal Thea's purse. He's a fiery character who'll give Miss Queen a different perspective on life.

Since there's been both a male and female version of Speedy, could tonight's episode clarify who's who?

"There's definitely some teasing in the dialogue that eludes to that," Haynes reveals. "There's two different versions of the comics -- one with Thea as Speedy and another with Roy Harper as Speedy. Producers aren't really saying if they're going to do either or but they definitely have some dialogue that eludes to both of them becoming that."

 

Harper will stick around for a while. Haynes hints, "There's going to be a really fun story line between Roy and Oliver within the next five episodes." What do you think of Haynes as Harper?
