Arrow and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow showrunner Marc Guggenheim just shared a super spoilery piece of artwork which has Felicity (played by Emily Bett Rickards) as a superhero!
Felicity turns into the mysterious superhero for Legends of Tomorrow‘s next episode called “Doomsworld” on The CW.
The episode shows what happens after the Legion of Doom recently obtained the Spear of Destiny — they actually rewrite their reality, creating their own kingdom in which each of the heroes suffers their own personal punishments.
The fact that both of them get into the shit is one of the ways that they gravitate back towards one another,” he shared. “They have a common malady, so to speak.
She, above anyone else, is the person that he’s going to go to, if he has something to confide or work through.”
He explains of his two best friends: “Diggle is very much the soothsayer and the person who can give him a good piece of advice. But in terms of a heart to heart and a dynamic conversation, Felicity is the one for him.”
“The fact that she’s going through something like that, maybe that’s going to cause him to open up.”
“That’s not really up to me, but I will say that they have some really, really cool stuff coming up,” Stephen shared, giving all Olicity fans everywhere a little bit of hope when it comes to the estranged couple.
Whether that will happen in the next episode or, even five, remains a mystery still.
According to science, you need four types of friends in your life: the “Prophet”, the “Cheerleader”, the “Harasser” and the “Inspiration”.
Good thing that we can find all of these friends on the CW on our favorite shows.
We already feel like Felicity Smoak, Iris West, Mary, Queen of Scots, Clarke Griffin and more from the CW are the best friends we need in our lives, so it’s a good thing that science just proved that we DO need them in our lives.

It looks like Thea and Felicity are working together on something big on tonight’s all-new Arrow.
In “Fighting Fire with Fire”, Oliver (Stephen Amell) faces his biggest challenge yet as mayor, and contemplates resigning from office — but Thea (Willa Holland) isn’t happy with that idea at all and goes to Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) for help.
Meanwhile, after Vigilante attacks Oliver while he’s acting as the mayor, Diggle (David Ramsey) leads the team in a mission to stop Vigilante once and for all.
As we saw in the last episode of Arrow, Felicity is heading down a path that we never expected her to.
EP Wendy Mercileopened 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 Amelladded, “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!
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 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.”
