Holland is an original cast member of The CW’s Arrowverse starting show Arrow. She began reading back on her appearances in season 5, and ultimately left the show in season 6 with Roy Harper (Colton Haynes). Haynes returned to Arrow in season 7 as an older and present day Roy without Speedy. During the season we found the why. Along their quest, Roy died, and Thea stuck him in a Lazarus Pit to bring him back. But Roy could not deal with the bloodlust and left Nyssa and Thea to return to Star City.
It will be interesting to see how Speedy recovers from Roy leaving her. There is no indication though that Holland’s presence will come in the present, future, or past of Arrow. She will recur, so multiple iterations of her character are possible. The final ten episodes will travel into the past as indicated by the presence of Moira Queen in some promotional photos released. It is known the future will be brought in or traveled to as Mia and Oliver will meet during the season. Anything is possible!
