Sooner or later, someone is going to try to get a handle on the new and “improved” Roy Harper … and that very person may be Oliver Queen.
“Arrow” will be back on The CW Wednesday night, but what we are actually here to talk about today is “Tremors,” which will air the following week and feature some sort of grand training session for Stephen Amell and Colton Haynes’ characters. They are going to be working hard in order to harness his powers, and make sure that he uses them for good rather than evil.
Is he going to be successful? The obvious advantage here is that Oliver has some experience dealing with a certain all-familiar serum already. Who does he have to thank for that? Think along the lines of Slade Wilson. This is a guy who mastered the art of being evil, and much of the reason why is because of the serum. Oliver may know some of the ways to handle this a little bit better now.
On the flip side, one of the problems that comes with the serum at this point is that Oliver knows already what it can do: Create some really horrible emotional breaks. This may not even be the same Roy Harper that we once knew on the show, mostly because his brain could be practically fried into pieces. He’ll be quick to get into fights, react violently, or just not understand what is happening to him. Not even a hero of Oliver’s caliber may be able to contend with that.
What do you want to see out of this, and do you have a hard time believing that Roy would have no clue that Oliver is the Arrow? Share some of your thoughts below!
