If you happen to be a fan of John Diggle and his complicated life on Team Arrow, then Season Six will likely be the season you've been waiting for.
Diggle actor David Ramsey took a second to chat with ComicBook.com's Russ Burlingame at San Diego Comic-Con 2017 about what's coming in Season Six. Specifically, if any of the character's lingering issues will be addressed
Diggle absolutely has some unresolved issues with Lyla. We're going to explore that. Listen, he's a vigilante married to the leader of ARGUS who has her fingers on the pulse of the Suicide Squad. That's just good drama if you really want to go into it. That's a six-episode arc by itself. And also just in terms of how they see justice. Ya know there's a philosophy that you have to have to be the next Amanda Waller which Lyla Michaels is, and Diggle doesn't share that, and that's the 800-pound gorilla in the room in terms of their relationship, so we're going to get into that.
Ramsey wouldn't say if he survives the island or not, but alluded to the fact it wouldn't be a complete ending for the character if he did, saying, "If he had died on the island, then he would've died with unresolved issues with Lyla for sure."
You can find the entire interview in the video above, and you can find the description for Arrow below:
After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the North China Sea. He returned home to Star City, bent on righting the wrongs done by his family and fighting injustice. As the Green Arrow, he protects his city with the help of former soldier John Diggle (David Ramsey),computer-science expert Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards), his vigilante-trained sister Thea Queen (Willa Holland), Deputy Mayor Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne), brilliant inventor Curtis Holt (Echo Kellum), and his new recruits, street-savvy Rene Ramirez (Rick Gonzalez) and meta-human Dinah Drake (Juliana Harkavy).
Oliver has finally solidified and strengthened his crime-fighting team only to have it threatened when unexpected enemies from his past return to Star City, forcing Oliver to rethink his relationship with each member of his “family”.
