Roy's clone?

What did Roy's clone mean when he said, "Write me off, or don't, either way... blow." ???

Good question, I was wondering the same thing. Maybe it was a dirty remark O.o

Probably meant something like blow off (go away, leave me alone).

To sum up, he doesn't want to see Green Arrow and the rest of the folks snooping around his business anymore.

Logically that's what I thought too, but I didn't want to risk it being some secret message or something lol

I have it marked as a heroin reference since he does have a drug problem in the comics but since it is a kids show probably not. The only other thing that made me think that was your body was a temple. But as usual we can all agree that it sucks to be Roy Harper

This whole episode was basically a long, coded metaphor for drug addiction.

I'm sure the clone's going to die. Roy Harper lost his arm in the shoe just as he did in the comics. I don't see two Roy's.

Doubtful. Who says there can't be two Roys? Who said they have to be on the same side? One could be the hero, Red Arrow, and the other the villain Arsenal. Besides, why would the one we've been following for over a year now, the one with all the character development, and the baby, be the one who's killed off even if one had to be. It doesn't matter if the one we know is a clone. Who cares about real Roy? We don't know him and he doesn't need to replace an established character.

This is not directed at you specifically but I am fascinated as to why the Young Justice fandom seems to be obsessed with killing people off. Everyone thought Artemis was going to die, everyone thought Aqualad was going to die, everyone thought Wally was going to die, everyone thought Red Arrow was going to die, etc. Why kill people off when it only reduces your ability to tell stories?

If they're going to kill off a character, they're taking someone we've come to know. I think it would be smart killing clone off to introduce the real Roy.

LOL, this is because before the first season started, there was a preview of the show that included an interview with the shows producers where Greg Weisman said "not everyone is going to make it".....this immediately lead to rampant speculation that, even though never specifically stated, someone was going to die........ and no one did.
 
I don't know why people are so obsessed with it this season though, Its already known that Tula died, and we all know Barry Allens fate in the comic, assuming that they won't make Wally become Kid Flash again being as he is about 21 years of age now...that is, if he comes back to being a hero at all. I would say they have enough death already. 
 
Given this show is a mash up of Teen Titans and Young Justice comics and Teen Titans have the most casualties out of any comic team, a lot of that has to do with too many unapparent characters, which most of them they likely just wouldn't introduce in the series to save time

@Lt_Smash:

Blow isnt a herion reference it's a cocaine reference.but regardless he didnt mean it as a drug reference anyway.
