When Arrow returns with new episodes next month, the CW drama will bring along a fan-favorite character. The network has released the synopsis for the 15th episode of Season 6, awhich heralds the return of Colton Haynes as Roy Harper.
The episode, titled "Doppelganger," indicates that Roy will come back to Star City pursued by trouble. The synopsis is pretty vague, which suggests the circumstances surrounding Roy's return may be a little dubious. With a title like "Doppelganger," don't be surprised to see more than one Roy running around Star City.
Haynes' Roy Harper was introduced during Arrow's first season. The actor became a series regular with Season 2, until his abrupt departure midway through Season 3. The character later appeared for an episode of Season 4. This upcoming guest turn will mark his first since then.
