New Arrow Preview Clip Shows Felicity Adjusting to New Life

Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards)

Felicity Smoak is getting stronger, but not in the way you might think.

The beloved Team Arrow member portrayed by Emily Bett Rickards is paralyzed after her life-threatening run-in with Damien Darhk’s gunmen. The 11th episode of Arrow‘s 4th season will show Felicity adjusting to her new phase of life which executive producer Mark Guggenheim says will make her “stronger.”

Commenting on fan reaction to the season so far, Guggenheim told, “The wheelchair is the beginning of Felicity’s story this year, not the end of it. I read online people saying, ‘Oh, lighter season my ass.’ I would argue that for Arrow, this is lighter. What’s particularly lighter is Felicity’s reaction to her injury and the way she handles it. Last year, there would’ve been a lot of sobbing and crying. This year, you’ll see that, in many ways, Felicity comes into her own in a much greater way than she would have had she not faced this adversity. Whatever doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger. You’re really going to see that in the upcoming episodes with Felicity.”

The CW has released a new preview clip from today’s episode of Arrow titled ‘Diggle vs. Shadowspire.”

Arrow airs on Wednesdays at 8pm EST on The CW.

The official synopsis of episode 11 is below:

Diggle (David Ramsey) must learn to trust his brother Andy (guest star Eugene Byrd) when an enemy of their wartime past, an agent of the criminal organization Shadowspire, pays a visit to Star City. However, Diggle learns more than he bargained for about their shared time at war. Meanwhile, Oliver (Stephen Amell) has to learn a whole new way of life.

Charlotte Brandstrom directed the episode written by Brian Ford Sullivan & Emilio Ortega Aldrich (#411).
