Emily Bett Rickards Is Shutting Down This Felicity Storyline on 'Arrow'

Ever since Felicity and Oliver tied the knot on Arrow this past season, fans have been hoping that a baby is next for them – however, Emily Bett Rickards isn’t a fan of that storyline at all.

“I don’t know if I would be interested in exploring that storyline right now with Felicity,” the 26-year-old actress shared with TV Guide. “I feel like she deserves a little something more than that, and I don’t want that to be taken the wrong way.”

Honestly, we get it. They’re newlyweds, and on top of that, he’s in jail.

Emily adds that she’s more interested in seeing Felicity “I don’t know, like, deal with a villain face-to-face for a consistent number of episodes?”

Another storyline Emily would hop on board with is the path to Smoak Technologies.

“Because it’s been teased in a future world in one of our universes, it’s definitely a possibility,” she says. “But it also is one of those things where we don’t have to do it. I think it would be extremely enjoyable to see what’s next there.”

Emily continues, “Like is Helix Dynamics going to spur Smoak Tech? What are they going to do with it? What would be their goal, what would be their journey, what would be their purpose? I think that would be an interesting conversation, and it’s what Curtis and Felicity are sort of trying to do with Helix Dynamics.”
