Spoilers if you aren't caught up on Arrow Through Season 2, Episode 18 - "The Man Under the Hood"!

The title for Arrow's upcoming episode should have been indication enough that "Seeing Red" would focus on Roy, at least in part. Putting aside the obvious nod to his hoodie color, Roy's rage has been coming to a slow but intense boil all season. The preview gives us more than a few hints that Roy is back on his feet and out of control, and the same applies for the episode description for "Seeing Red."
“Seeing Red” — (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET)
ROY SPINS OUT OF CONTROL — The mirakuru sends Roy (Colton Haynes) into an uncontrollable rage and he unleashes on the city. After Roy’s deadly fight with a police officer, Oliver (Stephen Amell) realizes the mirakuru has taken over Roy completely and must figure out a way to stop him. Things get more complicated after Sara (Caity Lotz) declares that Roy is too far gone and the only way to stop him is to kill him. Meanwhile, Thea (Willa Holland) believes she can breakthrough to Roy so she goes on camera at Moira’s (Susanna Thompson) campaign rally to lure him to Verdant. Her ploy works but after Roy attacks Thea, Team Arrow unleashes on him.

Doug Aarniokoski directed the episode written by Wendy Mericle & Beth Schwartz (#220).

It's interesting to note that Sara's in favor of killing Roy, while Oliver's heard saying "No one dies tonight" in the trailer. But Oliver took a pretty big risk with Roy's life when he stopped the mirakuru machine mid-cycle in "The Man Under the Hood," so would he go as far as to kill Roy if it came down to it? I think he would if Thea's life were directly in danger, and from the sound of it, it may come to that. But on the optimistic side, if there's ever been one thing that's gotten through to Roy amidst the worst of his rage, it's Thea, so maybe she'll be able to draw him back to the surface before things go too far.

Then again, maybe not...
