LOS ANGELES - Actor Colton Haynes, who plays Roy in the CW's popular comic book adventure "The Flash," is leaving the series at the end of the season, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
A spokesman for Warner Bros. Television told the publication that Haynes will be in one more episode this season before departing the show as a series regular. Haynes joined the show in a recurring role in the 15th episode of the show's first season and was promoted to series regular the following season, with his edgy Roy Harper character becoming a fan favorite.
In Wednesday's episode, Roy faked his own death in jail when a character that is able to stab people without killing them stabs him as part of the ruse. The scenario means Roy would need to leave the city and start a new life, under the storyline.
Next week's episode may clear things up, if not momentarily.
