Despite a brilliant first two seasons, even the most die hard fan of Oliver Queen’s ARROW will admit that Season 3 and the latest Season 4 is more miss than hit.
With The Flash and even Gotham on top of its game, Star City is in danger of being left behind with too many adults in superhero suits and no one never staying dead, diluting the quality on offer especially as the writers are too busy setting up another franchise than really concreting on ARROW itself.
Anyway, rant over and some welcome news is that Colton Haynes is returning as Ray Harper a character last seen driving away having taking the fall for Oliver’s crimes and at the same time passing over the mantle of the Red Arrow to his girlfriend Thea.
Interesting though its only for one episode which leads to speculation that maybe he is the character who could well be in that coffin we saw in the flash forward scene in the first episode of the new season.
It would make sense as the writers have said that someone is going to die and while its impossible for it to be Thea, Laurel, Diggle and Felicity, my money at the moment is on Ray, Captain Lance or even Felicity’s mum who has also headed back to Star City.
We haven’t got long to wait to find out with the mini season break only weeks away….
