I am glad they are moving so fast with Roy becoming Oliver's sidekick. When he was announced being on the show I thought they would draw it out and he would really just be Thea Queen's boyfriend.
Its interesting my Dad watches the show. He read the comics all the way back in the 40s as a kid. Plus he is really into archery. So its right up his alley even though his memories of the comic is very vague. He picked on Roy being setup as the sidekick even though having no memory of Speedy.
