'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!

VIDEO: Katie Cassidy Returns to 'Arrow' In Mid-Season Premiere -- But Not As Laurel!

Katie Cassidy is coming back to Arrow — but not as the character you think she is.

In the first visual sneak peek at the mid-season premiere, fake Laurel is welcomed back by the group including Oliver and Felicity — but they quickly find out that she’s not Laurel at all.

“Finally, it’s been about time that someone figured it out,” fake Laurel says in the new video, teasing what’s coming in the episode.

The episode is titled “Who Are You?” and that’s exactly what we want to know — who is this fake Laurel?

Arrow returns on Wednesday, January 25th.

Tonight is the mid-season finale of Arrow — how is that possible? We need more eps to get us through the holiday season!

Anyway, we while plan on re-watching every ep of season five during that time, here’s the scoop on tonight’s episode:

Meanwhile, Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) and Detective Malone (Tyler Ritter) discover a clue that links Prometheus to Oliver’s past.

After Arrow's 100th Episode, What's Next For the Show?

After Arrow's 100th Episode, What's Next For the Show?

Who watched the 100th episode of Arrow last night on the CW?

We loved getting to see the old and familiar faces and melted over all the Oliver/Diggle and Olicity scenes there were!

So, what’s next after that episode? What comes next after Oliver (played by Stephen Amell) chooses the life where there’s pain and both Laurel and his parents are gone?

“Arrow 509, the midseason finale, there’s a fair amount of discussion about Flashpoint, given the fact that, you know, essentially the crossover outed Flashpoint to the Arrow characters who weren’t Felicity,” EP Marc Guggenheim shares.

“They deal with—I think in some humorous ways, actually—deal with some of the ramifications. For example, I think Curtis is concerned that maybe he was straight originally, as one example.”

And what about Oliver?

“You’ll see that [he] sort of has a new sense of purpose. The events of 508, basically, forced him to emotionally double down on his mission, so he goes into 509 with a new sense of purpose, and I would say, also, a reaffirmation of his bond with Thea, because they basically chose each other in 508. That carries through the midseason finale and, obviously, sets up things beyond it.”

Stephen Amell Totally Ruins 'Arrow' Cast's 100th Episode Mannequin Challenge

We think someone needs to teach Stephen Amell just what the Mannequin Challenge is…

The Arrow star tried to take part in the challenge with his cast mates to celebrate the 100th episode, airing RIGHT NOW on the east coast — but it didn’t turn out so well.

In the vid below, the rest of the cast — including Emily Bett Rickards, Echo Kellum and David Ramsey — froze for the challenge in their place.

All expect Stephen, who ruined it by moving not just one, or twice, but a ton of times!

Watch below!

Stephen Amell Shares Thoughts About 'Arrow's 100th Episode

Stephen Amell Shares Thoughts About 'Arrow's 100th Episode

We can’t believe how fast the 100th episode of Arrow came!

“I can’t believe our 100th episode is airing tonight. Because of the network we’re on, and the long shadows cast by The Vampire Diaries (RIP, Brady The Werewolf) and Supernatural (RIP, Background Character I Eventually Play Who Is Brutally Murdered) people might be inclined to think that 100 episodes come along easily,” star Stephen Amell writes on his Facebook.

“They don’t. You have to be incredibly fortunate. More importantly, you have to be surrounded by a singularly talented Crew and Cast. Directors and Writers. Executives, Network and Studio Heads. We are. We really, really are.”

He continues, “The fans, from all over world, young and old… whether you discovered Green Arrow in the 1940′s or you discovered the show somewhere between October 10, 2012 and tonight, thank you. This experience has fundamentally altered the lives of more people than you can possibly imagine. What a ride.”
