Emily Bett Rickards Is Pro-Olicity All The Time on 'Arrow'

Emily Bett Rickards Is Pro-Olicity All The Time on 'Arrow'

Emily Bett Rickards knows, like the fans, that there’s some kind of magic to Oliver and Felicity’s relationship on Arrow.

Speaking with TV Guide, the actress opened up about why thinks fans love the couple so much – and it’s all about how real their relationship actually is.

“I hope that it’s because it’s honest and working towards a place of what we all sort of want and where we can see ourselves bettering ourselves,” Emily shared. “I don’t know what the magic equation is to writing something that hits somebody at a certain time.”

“We’re so grateful. I mean, I really like them as a couple, I’m pro-them as a couple.”

She continues, “I think the way that they communicate and talk to each other is about them growing. That’s not always interesting to watch on TV… it’s not always great to watch happy things on TV all the time, even comedy has very dark themes, but there is such a purpose towards them working as a couple and working through it. I hope that’s what grounds people to their relationship.”

Emily Bett Rickards Dishes An Olicity Reunion: 'It's Just Going to be Different Now'

Emily Bett Rickards is opening up about a future reunion between everyone’s fave couple, Olicity, on Arrow – and it doesn’t sound all that great.

Speaking with TVGuide, the actress dished about Felicity’s new gig with the FBI in tonight’s new episode.

“I feel like it has pitfalls and darkness because it’s not her natural state, right? It doesn’t seem like somewhere she naturally came to,” Emily says. “It seems like a place that she was forced to be in, in which case we’re not always our authentic selves in that area.”

She adds about the future reunion between Felicity and Oliver: “I think there’s definitely going to be a fracture. There already was, Felicity’s already said, ‘You’ve decided — Oliver’s decided to do this alone. It didn’t include me.’ There’s already a fracture, so where do we move from that?”

Emily continues, “I don’t know if there’s things that are fun, so everyone loves watching that. But there are Olicity moments, it’s just going to be different now. Life changes.”

Arrow airs TONIGHT, October 29th @ 8PM ET/PT on The CW.

Felicity Smoak Isn't Felicity Smoak Anymore on 'Arrow's Season 7 Premiere

Felicity Smoak Isn't Felicity Smoak Anymore on 'Arrow's Season 7 Premiere

When Arrow returns tonight on The CW, you’re going to meet a very different Felicity Smoak – in fact, that’s probably not even her name anymore.

Emily Bett Rickards‘ character was forced into witness protection after Oliver (Stephen Amell) turned himself in at the end of last season – and she is struggling with everything.

“It’s sort of that concept of your life changes and the people around you are the ones that matter, and not having them in it can really detrimentally affect your lifestyle and who you are and who you’ve become,” Emily shared with EW. “It’s sort of that feeling that you can be surrounded by a million people but be so lonely if you don’t have the ones you love.”

“I think that’s where we find pretty much everyone at the beginning of the season,” she adds.

Emily continues, talking about how Felicity will still be mega pissed at her husband for turning himself in.

“That decision had her life completely remade and it wasn’t her choice. She’s upset, she’s hurt, she’s lonely, and she’s heartbroken. So, all of those intense emotions together don’t make for the best recipe.”

Arrow season 7 premieres TONIGHT, October 15th @ 8PM ET/PT on The CW.

Felicity & Oliver Are Miserable Without Each Other in 'Arrow's Upcoming Season

Felicity & Oliver Are Miserable Without Each Other in 'Arrow's Upcoming Season

Arrow kicks off its’ seventh season on Monday night (October 15), and unlike in the past, there won’t be as much Olicity scenes as you’d hope for – but showrunner Beth Schwartz is giving fans some intel on the couple’s fate going forward.

“They are not adapting well,” she shared with reporters. “They’re both pretty miserable. Felicity is away from her husband, William’s away from his father, and their family and their city and their real lives, so it’s not going well.”

Well, that’s not great. We hate sad Olicity.

But don’t fret, Beth says, because while Olicity are apart at the moment, they’re still bonded by their story.

“In terms of storytelling, it would be great if both of them are fighting for the same thing,” she adds, “so even if we don’t physically see them together, their stories are pretty much — their goals are the same.”

All in all, Oliver and Felicity will “connect without physically connecting, which I think is really cool because they’re both fighting for their families, so you don’t need to see them together to get that connection.”

Stay tuned for more Olicity and Arrow on JJJ!
