Photos from the upcoming Arrow episode ‘Doppelganger’, show the return of Colton Haynes as Roy Harper.

The recently released synopsis for ‘Doppelganger’ revealed that the return of Roy would be due to him being in trouble, and needing help from Oliver and Thea. The question of what this trouble is, remains a mystery, however the newly-released pictures may shed some light on Roy’s predicament, as he appears to be in police custody:

The most exciting revelation to come from these photos, is that Thea will once again suit up as Speedy, after having retired her vigilante identity after falling under Malcolm Merlyn’s influence. She hasn’t worn her suit in over a year, but apparently Roy’s return inspires her to don the red mask once again.

At first glance, it appears that Roy has been arrested, which would make sense given he confessed to being the Arrow, and then faked his death in order to protect Oliver’s secret identity – so it wouldn’t work out well is the police found him alive and well. However, on closer inspection, it seems that Roy is cut and bruised, zip-tied to a chair in what appears to be a hotel room, suggesting a kidnapping rather than an arrest.

Arrow is currently on hiatus for the Winter Olympics, so fans will have to wait a little longer to see Roy again.

Arrow returns on March 1st, with ‘Doppelganger’ airing on March 8th.
