I’ve uploaded over 40 High Definition captures of Colton in last night’s season premiere to the gallery. I thought the episode was pretty amazing, and am intrigued about that ending!

How is the team dynamic affected now that Roy’s (Colton Haynes) a part of it?
Guggenheim: He’s finding his place in this dynamic. He came into a trio and now it’s a quartet. He’s sort of learning how to deal with that. At the same time he’s going to be dealing with some pretty heavy baggage over the course of the first bunch of episodes. There’s some things that happen in the premiere that are going to resonate and stick with him for the first half of the year. And there are some chickens from last season that are also going to come home to roost for Roy. Roy’s got some pretty big issues to deal with this season that are related to, but also go far beyond, his relationship to Team Arrow.
How are Roy and Oliver handling Thea’s disappearance?
Guggenheim: That’s something that’s actually going to come to a head in the first two episodes. Suffice it to say they’re both dealing with it differently. And I would suggest that’s because one has more information regarding Thea’s whereabouts than the other.
Roy is pretty headstrong. How does he take to being Oliver’s sidekick?
Guggenheim: I think at the beginning of the season it’s actually going pretty well. They definitely develop a mentor-apprentice type relationship and that’s not not say that Roy doesn’t have a lot of baggage to deal with, but things are going to happen and things are going to come to light in Episode 6 that are really going to challenge his relationship with Oliver. And Oliver’s relationship with him. Its going to be a two-way street.
Mark: Any scoop on Arrow?
Now that Roy’s suited up in his own (and awesome) version of Ollie’s leather getup, he’s made the transition to a real part of the team, and there will be an episode that dives deep into what that means for the new, young hero. “We made a big deal about Roy joining the team and then didn’t get a chance to do that much with it because we were pushing a lot of other story,” executive producer Marc Guggenheim said about Roy’s earlier storylines that revolved around joining Team Arrow. “You really feel like Roy is a part of Team Arrow and it’s more than just wearing a costume. He’s really present and a member of the group. The trio becomes a quartet.” Plus, episode six will be all about Roy and explore his mentee/mentor relationship with Oliver.
6. Is Roy and Oliver’s team-up a preview of things to come?
For Guggenheim, integrating Roy into Team Arrow was an arc that first began back in season two’s “Tremors” episode. “We made a big deal about Roy joining the team [back then] and then didn’t get a chance to do that much with it because we were pushing a lot of other story,” he admitted, promising that Oliver and Roy’s “mentor-mentee, master-apprentice relationship” is “a big component of the [new] season.” “You really feel like Roy is a part of Team Arrow and it’s more than just wearing a costume. He’s really present and a member of the group — the trio becomes a quartet.” Guggenheim hinted that episode six — another Roy-centric hour — will have similarities to “Tremors.” “I wouldn’t call it a sequel, but they are thematically related,” he said. “Roy being a part of the team is an important part of Roy’s development.”
