Maybe rather than having him be a vigilante now we can add a new layer of flashbacks to the storyline and have some (not many Wildcat flashbacks).
Ted Grant's initial role on the show will be training Katie Cassidy's Laurel Lance of which he says that 'I feel like right now he's wanting to take that step by step and not get too ahead of ourselves and work on the technique and the training. It's not about having her go out and fight people, it's more about really loving the sport and hoping that she sticks to loving what boxing is and not any other reason. It appears that the road of Laurel adapting the Black Canary mantle is till a way off yet but heading in that direction. Although Laurel will take a shine to Ted, it seems that Oliver will take a little while lopnger to warm up. Acoording to raimerez, 'There will be many stand offs between Ted and Arrow.' Could we see Ramirez suiting up as Wildcat sometime in the future? Ramirez says that 'we haven't gone down that road yet on where they're going to take him and how involved he's going to be as a vigilante — if he's going to even be a vigilante. None of that has been established yet. I'm more than willing to suit up. I will be like a little kid in the candy store if that were to happen.'
