As we saw in the last episode of Arrow, Felicity is heading down a path that we never expected her to.
EP Wendy Mercile opened up about what’s ahead for Felicity and her involvement in the Helix Group and hactivism: “We really started the season wanting to have her go through some version of her own island in some way.”
She adds, “I would say it’s going to get very interesting — and the team, they’re definitely going to have very strong opinions about it.”
Will this bring Felicity and Oliver closer together again? “[It will help her] understand Oliver in a more profound way,” Wendy added.
Stephen Amell added, “He knows that she’s into something, and he knows that she doesn’t want to tell him about it, so he’s dealing with that in his own way…For Felicity, it’s not something that she and Oliver discuss until they have what is actually an adult conversation about it in [a future episode].”
Stay tuned for a sneak peek of next week’s episode!
