Get ready for a whole lot more Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards) on The CW’s Arrow!
Can I get an Amen?
The fan favorite is about to be brought into Oliver’s (Stephen Amell) inner circle on the next all-new episode, “The Odyssey,” but she will also be upped to series regular for season two, ensuring her involvement with Starling City’s favorite vigilante is not going to end in fatal danger.
“My favorite part is that the relationships start to change. With Oliver, she’s still a super nervous human being, and that doesn’t change, God bless her; she’s awesome. That doesn’t change, but she starts to trust Oliver, and I think it becomes very sweet,” Rickards said.
“Oliver never really lets his guard down for anyone, but having her there creates a different dynamic—even just having a female there in the lair and in that relationship. It loosens some things; it becomes more comfortable; and we’ll see that relationship evolve definitely into the first season.”
