The CW’s ‘Arrow‘ has introduced a number of DC characters into the mix from its first 14 episodes alone, but tonight’s “Dodger” might prove the most important yet. As Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) deals with the titular menace (played by ‘Battelstar Galactica‘ vet James Callis), Thea “Speedy” Queen will have a brush with the law of her own as she encounters Glades purse-snatcher Roy Harper (Colton Haynes)! So what will happen when “Speedys” collide? Get a sneak peek of tonight’s ‘Arrow’ inside!

We’re just hours away from an all-new installment of The CW’s ‘Arrow,’ which tonight will introduce a character well known to DC comics fans under multiple crime-fighting aliases, Roy Harper! Thea Queen (Willa Holland) will encounter the square-jawed con artist as he snatches her purse during a visit to the Glades, but quickly finds himself trading barbs with the Starling City police department.

“Roy is still a badass like he was in the comics but the ‘Arrow’ producers have given him a heart,” Haynes tells The Hollywood Reporter. “He’s definitely the bad boy that piques Thea’s interest but he’s doing the things he has to do to live the life he’s been given in the ghetto of [Starling City's] the Glades.”

THR managed to grab a new sneak peek from tonight’s episode “Dodger,” in which Thea proves quite a sucker for the boy’s good looks and sob story skill. Elsewhere, Oliver will have his hands full taking down the infamous “Dodger,” roping in Felicity Smoak (new season 2 series regular Emily Bett Rickards) for assistance, however against her will.

You can check out a first look at Roy Harper’s introduction into the ‘Arrow’ world below, and tell us what DC characters you’d like to see pop up on ‘Arrow’ in the comments!
