Arrow: Does Ernie Hudson's Character Have a Green Lantern Connection?

As the penultimate season of Arrow nears its end, The CW has released the first images from next week's episode.

In "Spartan," the 19th episode of Season 7, John Diggle reaches out to estranged former colleague General Stewart following Team Arrow's disastrous setback. Portrayed by guest star Ernie Hudson, the photos from the upcoming episode suggest that the General may be linked to fan-favorite Green Lantern John Stewart.

The Emerald Warrior had been a Marine sniper before transitioning to civilian architect and member of the Green Lantern Corps.
