The first clip from tonight’s Arrow has been released, showing Roy Harper trying (and failing) to use those newfound superpowers to play the hero.

The new footage comes from the episode “Blind Spot,” which airs airs tonight, Jan. 22. It looks like we’ll finally get to see the effects or Roy’s (Colton Haynes) newfound superpowers as he rescues his friend from an attack. But, that’s when things go sideways.

Roy apparently can’t control the high he gets when he hulks out, and he beats a guy nearly to death before his pal Sin (Bex Taylor-Klaus) pulls him off — and takes a wallop herself for her troubles. 

We’ve already heard that Arrow (Stephen Amell) will start training Roy, and helping him learn how to control his powers. Judging by this clip, it seems the vigilante will have his work cut out for him. This should make for an interesting wrinkle as season two continues, and we can't wait to see how the two work together.

Check out the footage below and let us know what you think:
