Will We Ever See Katie Cassidy on 'Arrow' Again? Showrunners Weigh In

Will We Ever See Katie Cassidy on 'Arrow' Again? Showrunners Weigh In

Remember when we heard the big news that Katie Cassidy would be a series regular across ALL of the DC shows on The CW? Well, it looks like that’s changed.

The actress, who portrayed Laurel Lance on flagship show Arrow, might not be returning to the DC Universe for a while.

“We have an idea for how to see her again, but we haven’t made a deal with her yet,” producer Marc Guggenheim shared at a recent press event.

“She’s not a series regular anymore, so we have to make a contract with her and she’s got to be available, and we haven’t had those conversations,” he confirmed.

So does that mean Laurel, and even her alter egos Black Siren/Canary, are gone for good? Not yet.

“We do have an idea [how to bring her back]. We know exactly what we do want to do,” he added.

It would be so wrong not to have her back!

FYI: Katie is also pictured below arriving at the Vancouver International Airport for a flight out this week.

Arrow's Felicity Dives Head First Into Helix & Doesn't Take A Second Look Back

Arrow's Felicity Dives Head First Into Helix & Doesn't Take A Second Look Back

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!

'Arrow' Tackles Gun Violence on Tonight's Episode - Sneak Peek!

'Arrow' Tackles Gun Violence on Tonight's Episode - Sneak Peek!

Arrow is going a little off book with an episode that’s tackling real world issues tonight — gun violence.

“Gun violence felt like the right topic because of its topicality, but also because of the level of gun violence that is on Arrow,” EP Marc Guggenheim shared ahead of the show.

He adds, “We could have done an episode on abortion, but that’s not really where the show lives. So gun violence really felt like the right thing to tackle.”

In the episode called “Spectre of the Gun”, after a traumatic attack on City Hall triggers painful memories for Rene, Oliver must deal with the perpetrator behind the attack and realizes the best way to do so is as Mayor Queen instead of the Green Arrow.

Marc added about the slightly different episode you’ll see tonight: “It’s the fifth season. We’ve hopefully earned the freedom to — in 23 episodes of television, you can have 22 pieces of candy and one episode of vegetables. … I would never want people to watch under false pretenses, so I would probably be very upfront about the fact that it’s not a typical Arrow episode.”

Arrow airs TONIGHT, February 15th @ 8PM ET/PT on The CW.

5 Ways Felicity Smoak Is The Best Character on TV Right Now

Let’s face it, Felicity Smoak is the best character on television right now.

She’s hot, smart, and puts Team Arrow on the right path every time, in every episode of Arrow.

She’s not afraid to defend herself, doesn’t wait around for someone to see her value, she’s nerdy, she’s sassy, she’s even feistier than we first thought she was…all in all, Arrow would not be anything without Felicity Smoak.

Don’t you agree?

Here are 5 Ways to prove she is the best character on TV right now…

'Arrow's Laurel Lance Wasn't Laurel Lance At All in Winter Premiere

'Arrow's Laurel Lance Wasn't Laurel Lance At All in Winter Premiere

Laurel Lance did indeed return to Star City on Arrow last night…it just wasn’t the Laurel that we all knew.

Instead of being the same Laurel (played by Katie Cassidy) we saw die at the end of season four (who we all hoped it actually was), this Laurel was actually Earth-2’s Black Siren!

During the episode, (and after Felicity caught the deception) Black Siren explained that she had come after Team Arrow because of big bad Prometheus as he was threatening her life.

So, after trying to kill Felicity (don’t you dare!), she’s locked up at a secure A.R.G.U.S. facility.

“The episode ends with laying a very specific seed with a very specific game plan on our part that we hope to see come to fruition,” EP Marc Guggenheim shared with EW after the episode aired. What does that even mean?!

Tune in next week for an all new ep of Arrow on The CW.

Felicity Kicks Off Her Revenge Agenda With Help From Oliver On 'Arrow'

Felicity Kicks Off Her Revenge Agenda With Help From Oliver On 'Arrow'

Felicity has only one thing on her mind as Arrow returns tonight — revenge.

Arrow EP Wendy Mericle spoke with ET about the future episodes and what will go on between Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) and Oliver (Stephen Amell).

“For us this season, our intent at the beginning was to do stories with Oliver and Felicity independent of the romantic relationship — sort of take a break, and let them date other people,” she shared.

“Going forward, to continue that, Felicity is going to be on a revenge mission against Prometheus. She doesn’t blame Oliver for what happened in 5×09, I think rightly so, and she’s going to be on her own path towards avenging Malone’s death,” she added.

And for Oliver? “Oliver will be on his own path dealing with Prometheus. Ultimately, they’re both going to be facing off and dealing with Prometheus, but in their own, independent ways.”

Get a sneak peek of what the episode tonight holds in the pics below — tune in at 8PM ET/PT on The CW.

'Arrow' Scoop: Dark Days Ahead for Emily Bett Rickards' Felicity Smoak

'Arrow' Scoop: Dark Days Ahead for Emily Bett Rickards' Felicity Smoak

Arrow is back on January 25th — that’s 17 days worth of waiting to see the amazing Emily Bett Rickards back as Felicity — and as EP Marc Guggenheim explains, we’re in for a darker Felicity than we left.

During the TCA panel today, the EP spoke about the new arc ahead when the show returns from its winter break and Felicity is on her last straw after Oliver (Stephen Amell) was tricked into killing her police officer boyfriend by Prometheus.

“Felicity is a wonderful character because she brings some light into the show,” he shared. “So it’s a darker — it’s an edgier story for Felicity, but at the same time, it’s still Felicity. You want to keep the character.”

Marc added about Felicity’s breaking point: “It’s the sum of a bunch of stuff, and Billy was sort of the final straw. It’s also the sum of the fact that Felicity’s been living in this darker world for the last four-plus years now and one of the things we’re exploring is how much what Oliver and Diggle and Roy and Laurel have been doing as vigilantes affected her and affected her way of thinking about things.”

We can’t wait to watch!
