'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?

Emily Bett Rickards' Favorite Superhero Is The Best Superhero Of Them All

Emily Bett Rickards' Favorite Superhero Is The Best Superhero Of Them All

Emily Bett Rickards gives off a fierce vibe in this shot from her feature in the new issue of VVV magazine.

The 25-year-old actress opened up about playing Felicity on Arrow, the fanbase and her ultimate superhero. Check it:

On her reaction to Felicity’s paralysis: I was shocked. My brain started racing to find answers. I asked if it was permanent. How does she find out? What are we going to be able to show of her emotional growth on learning how to adjust to this entirely new way of movement and life — I’m still not even making sense. It was a difficult story to tell, and I continue to say that I hope we were at least able to scratch the surface of what life would become for someone but I wish we had the time to have gone deeper.

On her favorite superhero: Ahem, Sailor Moon.

On having a devoted fanbase from Arrow and being a part of the universe: It’s educational and rewarding! I didn’t know much about the comics when I started off so I have learned a lot about eras as well as character trajectory and how stories eve love across different platforms. It can be intense and overwhelming but that’s because the universe is so big it has the potential to be endless, and that is very special.
