Team Arrow has taken a hit with one of its season regulars in Echo Kellum no longer appearing in the show on a weekly basis. Echo Kellum who plays Mr Terrific / Curtis Holt ends up taking a job in Washington DC at the end of this past week’s episode and to that end leaves Star City. It is important to note that the show isn’t an isolated story, given that this is the Arrowverse that opens the door for the character to come back into the story through Arrow, The Flash and the other CW’s shows.
Echo Kellum commented on the move saying:
“It was my idea. I have kids … and it was just starting to feel like I should be back home more,” he said. Kellum said he had a “long conversation about family and fatherhood” with then-showrunner Marc Guggenheim, “and he totally got where I was coming from.”
He further said:
he’s had “some discussions” about how Curtis might reappear down the line, though “nothing’s been finalized at this point.” He said he’s “100-percent open” to returning to the show, “so it should definitely work out at some point.”
Let us know what you think of Arrow this season and the change in Team Arrow with Mr Terrific taking a back seat.
