Zap2It chatted with Arrow‘s David Ramsey about his character John Diggle and his relationship with Stephen Amell’s Oliver.
In this week’s episode, we have two characters — Diggle and Helena — who both know Oliver’s secret. Will they be interacting at all?
David Ramsey: There’s no interacting, but there’s going to be some… I’m very interested in what the Huntress, what her presence means. There’s going to be some difficulties, some problems.
He has some very strong opinions about Helena. You already saw some of that, in this past episode, about what he thinks about what she’s doing. But in the next episode, you’re really going to see her presence cause a problem between Oliver and Diggle.
And again, how Diggle sees justice being distributed in Starling City, as opposed to how Oliver sees it. They’re going to continue to go head-to-head with this. There’s gonna be a major problem between Oliver and Diggle in terms of her presence.
Does Oliver listen to Diggle at all when it comes to Helena?
David Ramsey: Oliver already has said — to the Huntress in the last episode — that what she is doing is vengeance, not justice. He’s already grown. And I think a big part of that is because of his relationship with Diggle. He already has grown to see that what Helena is distributing in Starling City is not justice — it’s vengeance. And he’s already grown enough to see that that’s the thing he’s struggling with is that if he recognizes that in Helena, does he recognize it in himself? And maybe that’s not where he was when he first met Diggle.
