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!

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' 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!

Stephen Amell & Emily Bett Rickards Weigh In On 'Olicity's Future on 'Arrow'

Stephen Amell & Emily Bett Rickards Weigh In On 'Olicity's Future on 'Arrow'

Like everyone, JJJ was devastated when Oliver and Felicity decided to break up in the new season of Arrow.

Stars Stephen Amell and Emily Bett Rickards have weighed in about their characters’ break and if Olicity is still endgame.

“We have some arguments coming up, but I feel like we have a good dynamic going right now and really respecting each other as teammates,” Stephen shared. “I think they both love each other very much and care about each other, but that doesn’t always mean that people are together.”

Emily added, “I feel like they still have a really deep connection and they just need to grow apart…to be honest, they are more dynamic a part this season then they were together last season, so I just feel like it’s a really good thing. You do grow apart, sometimes, before you can grow together.”

“It’s cool to have a new love interest in her life (detective Billy Malone, played by Tyler Ritter),” Emily continued. “I feel like it’s a little soon but, everybody deals with their things in different ways. I feel like Felicity is just trying to figure things out, like we all are. She’s just trying, man. She’s just really trying, and she’s trying to be honest and get through it.”

TELL JJJ: What do you think about Olicity’s future?
