Arrow Season 4: Willa Holland Talks Becoming Speedy

Thea Queen/Speedy has joined Team Arrow as the latest Star City costumed-vigilante, which is something Willa Holland knew would eventually happen, though, she is glad that the Arrow writers took their time mapping out this course.

"Well, the first time you see Speedy in Season 4 is on the back of a motorcycle having a bunch of fun with Laurel," Holland says in the featurette below. "It's awesome! We're just two badass ladies just proving what women can do. Archery is amazing, I'm becoming quite obsessed with it. I actually prefere shooting with a compound bow rather than the recurve my character has, but you know, I'll deal with what I get."

Listen to Holland's comments in the video below.

When an old family friend, Jessica Danforth (guest star Jeri Ryan), tells Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Thea (Willa Holland) that she is going to run for mayor, both Queens are concerned considering the last three mayors have been murdered. Despite their protests, Jessica makes her announcement so the Green Arrow and Speedy vow to protect her. Meanwhile, Thea begins to exhibit effects from the Lazarus Pit. In addition, Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) is faced with a tough business decision and looks to one of her employees.
