Don’t look if you don’t want to see.
New photos from the Arrow set in Vancouver show Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards) in what looks like a wheelchair.
After getting riddled with bullets in the midseason finale, theories flew over whether Felicity was dead or whether she would live but be severely disabled. These picks, captured by Canadagraphs, at least prove she is alive (for now), and well enough to be sitting up on her own.
Take a look.
Apparently, Felicity Smoak will take on the mantle of the Oracle. In the comics, the Oracle is the name Barbara Gordon takes after she is similarly disabled and confined to a wheelchair by the Joker. Obviously, this means the Arrowverse is once again co-opting part of the Batman lore for its own purposes.
