Stephen Amell misses Emily Bett Rickards.

The 38-year-old Arrow actor opened up all over 2019 Comic-Con about missing Emily, who played Felicity on the series, since the show returned for its’ final season.

“It’s really tough doing the show without Emily being there because she was probably one of if not my best friend on set,” Stephen shared with Extra. “And I was sad to go back to do the eighth season without her being there. I like what we’re doing, but I’d be lying if I said that it didn’t feel like something was missing without her there.”

He also dished to ET that as soon as he was back on the set, he felt her absence.

“I texted her when I was on the plane to Vancouver last week. I texted her that I was sad. The show feels different, in no small part because Em Bett’s not with us this year,” he says.

Stephen also supports Emily‘s decision not to return for the final season.

“Me personally, I actually kind of hope she doesn’t come back because I love goodbyes. I love finite goodbyes,” Stephen says, agreeing with Emily. “That being said, if she wants to, that’d be cool.”

Arrow returns in October on The CW.

Scott frantically spends the rest of the day on a wild goose chase trying to figure out what she wants to talk about and following awful advice from friends, fans and social media trolls.

Emily Bett Rickards feels like Felicity Smoak’s time on Arrow is done – for good.

“I feel like Felicity has done her time,” Emily told Collider in a new interview. “I don’t know if anybody is going to like what I’m saying, but I feel like Felicity has done her time.

Emily Bett Rickards announced that she’d be leaving the series earlier last month.

“I thank you all for the time we’ve shared / The elevators we have climbed / The monsters we have faced and scared / And The burgers we have dined / I will keep her in my heart for always / And I hope that you can too / Because she would not be alive if it weren’t for all of you 💕,” she wrote in her poem.

Emily Bett Rickards' Final Scenes As Felicity Smoak Make The 'Arrow' Showrunner Cry

It’s almost time to say goodbye to Felicity Smoak on Arrow, and we’re not ready for it.

Showrunner Beth Schwartz is opening up just a little on Emily Bett Rickards‘ final scenes, coming up on the season finale.

“I can’t give away too much, but every time I watch the last 10 minutes of the finale, I cry every single time,” Beth shared with TV Guide. “I just wanted to honor [Felicity]. She’s been a really important character to the show — besides just having a huge fan base — to me personally.”

She adds, “She’s been one of my favorite characters, and I’ve been with her from the beginning. I wanted to make sure that we honored her both in her relationship with Oliver as well as her goals personally and the origin of Smoak Tech — her wanting to do something in addition to being on Team Arrow. That was her own, so that was really important to me.”

As far as Emily returning for the final season, Beth says she’s the door is always open.

“She is always welcome to come back, so I would be obviously more than happy to have her back next season,” Beth says. “We definitely have that in mind, honoring the series and getting all our favorites back.”
