SPOILERS AHEAD – DO NOT READ IT YOU DO NOT WANT TO KNOW
Click inside to find out the fate of one of Arrow’s cast members…
After posing as Arrow and turning himself into police to protect Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) in last week’s episode, Roy staged his own death in prison, then escaped, but ultimately made the decision to leave Team Arrow, boarding his motorbike and riding off.
Show runner and exec producer Greg Berlanti opened up about Colton‘s exit from the show, saying, “We made a two-season deal that had a clock on it, we always knew that. When he was coming off Teen Wolf, we described the role to him, what we were looking for, and we agreed he would do it for a couple of years. At that particular moment, he had a lot of opportunities to do things, and we’re lucky he chose us. He brought a lot of nototriety and viewership to the show when we were growing, and the show wouldn’t be the show it is without him. He is such a talent and such a nice guy eve from crew to writers were so enthusica to have him for the time we had him. We are sad to see him go but excited to see what he does next.”
Exec producer Marc Guggenheim added, “The hope is that he’ll continue to be part of the universe we are building. We love working with his so much. We’ve talked to him about returning to one of the three shows, and if available, he has expressed interest. He is gone but definitely not forever.”
