Will Felicity Smoak get back to work with Team Arrow? Will she get back with Oliver Queen?
One of those questions has an answer in the affirmative, according to Arrow producer Marc Guggenheim.
After the death of Laurel Lance aka Black Canary, Team Arrow is down not just one warrior, but two. Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) made her decision to leave the team and focus on her job at Palmer Tech shortly after her break-up with Oliver Queen. But, now it appears that Laurel’s death will spur her back to the Arrow Cave at least until Damien Dahrk is defeated.
Guggenheim told TVLine, “She’s broken up with Oliver and she’s also broken up with the team essentially. And in Episode 19 [‘Canary Cry,’ airing Wednesday, April 27], we’ll see the undoing of one of those decisions.”
While that leaves the door open for either possibility — or both — to take place, Guggenheim’s co-producer Wendy Mericle was clear: “She could come back to the team and that does not mean that she’s back together with Oliver.”
Guggenheim also made clear that the show did not feel Laurel had to die in order for Felicity and Oliver to be together permanently. He said, “We never had to kill Laurel to make Oliver and Felicity a couple. That is really independent from the romantic history that Oliver and Laurel had, and a completely different set of dynamics.”
