Oliver has been working with his new recruits since the fifth season of Arrow started, and things haven't necessarily gone smoothly. Diggle coming back to the fold will help things immensely, but another previous member of Team Arrow is also making a return soon.
At this weekend's Heroes & Villains Fan Fest, fans asked Speedy actress Willa Holland if she would be wearing the Speedy costume again, and her enthusiasm for it is contagious.
“Yeah, I definitely do! I miss that leather outfit a lot,” Holland said. “I miss being in the Arrowcave. I miss shooting on set all the time!”
She referenced the recently released Invasion! crossover photos, where Thea can be seen in costume along with the rest of the Arrow crew, Supergirl, Team Flash, and the Legends of Tomorrow. Even better news for fans is that she hints it might not be the last you'll see of her this season.
“The crossover photos have leaked out…You see that I put my costume back on after 8 episodes of not wearing it.” Holland said. “I have a feeling she’s going to be periodically putting it back on whenever it’s necessary.”
The Invasion! crossover kicks off in Supergirl and then proceeds to Arrow, The Flash, and Legends of Tomorrow. You can view the part synopsis for the crossover, which features an invasion from the Dominators down below. You can also view the entire Heroes & Villains Fan Fest panel recap here.
