DC Television’s long-running Arrow will be heading into its 5th season this fall as the show about Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) a.k.a. the Green Arrow, which has helped launch The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl, will feature a lot of new changes, new members and more. The show will also be celebrating its 100th episode with 5.08 which will also be coinciding with the 4-show crossover between The Flash, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow.
At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, TV Overmind participated inÂ the ArrowÂ Press Room with several outlets to chat with the cast and crew behind the show to get some insight into what is coming in Season 5. Emily Bett Rickards, who plays Felicity Smoak, was one of the great talents we spoke with as she teased what’s happening in the 5th season and what’s coming up for Felicity.
Highlights of the interview:
-What she hopes to see in the 100th episode of the series, while taking place in the 4-show crossover.
-Whether or not we will see Felicity back at Palmer Technologies after the events of last season.
-The chances of seeing Felicity’s father again and what Rickards hopes for the characters to do this time around.
-Felicity’s emotional state after the major events of the last few episodes of Season 4.
-How Felicity would react to seeing the evil version of her friend Laurel Lance (the Black Siren of Earth -2).
-What she hopes to see with the world of Supergirl coming into the Flash/Arrow/Legends-Universe.
