Much of Team Arrow’s fate hangs in the balance after Arrow‘s earth-shattering season five cliffhanger. While fans are uncertain what to expect when the show returns this fall, one cast member has a pretty clear idea of what her character’s motivations could be going forward – if she survives the horrific blast on Lian Yu, that is.
Willa Holland, who brings to life Thea Queen/Speedy on the show, recently spoke to ComicBook.com during San Diego Comic-Con. While Holland was not able to reveal what state Thea will be in when Arrow returns in October, she shed some light on what Thea’s primary focus in season six could be. Check it out in the clip above!
“I think it can really go one of two ways for her,” Holland revealed, “especially depending on if she’s alive or not at the beginning of the season. I think that she’s just going to try to grapple with every piece of information that she’s been given over the last six months.”
According to Holland, those bombshells range quite a bit, and include the sacrifice Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman) made on Thea’s behalf in the season five finale.
“She’s gotten handed a lot of information about herself, and about her family.” Holland explained. “And then also, her father just stepped on a mine for her. So I think her main focus if she were to be alive and well in the beginning of the season, would be to kind of grapple with all of that.”
Fans will just have to wait to see how Thea processes all of that – and if she is alive and well to do so – when Arrow returns to The CW in October.
