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.”

Katherine McNamara has blessed fans with another new pic of the Queen-Smoak family from the Arrow wrap party that happened over the weekend.

The 23-year-old actress got sandwiched in between Stephen Amell and Emily Bett Rickards for the cute shot.

“Re-meeting her was, of course, lovely on set because she’s just an amazing, kick*ss human being,” Kat recently shared about meeting Emily on the Arrow set after being cast as Mia Smoak.

She continued, “I’ve really loved getting to know her and kind of pulling whatever qualities I can from her and from Felicity, and putting them into Mia because it can be a challenge to find those sorts of lighter and interesting qualities. Emily has just got this inner strength that I love at her core and that’s something that I’ve fed off of a lot with Mia.”

Katherine added about Stephen about their first meeting, “He was covered in blood and scars and [had] a million other things on his mind and [was] obviously exhausted. But he happened to pop his head into the hair and makeup trailer and he stopped everything that he was doing, jumped out of his chair, came over, gave me a hug and had a long conversation with me and really, really made me feel welcome.”

Arrow returns NEXT WEEK on The CW.
