ARROW: Episode Focusing On Felicity's Background No Longer Titled "Oracle"

ARROW: Episode Focusing On Felicity's Background No Longer Titled "Oracle"

The crowd at this year's San Diego Comic-Con went wild when it was revealed that the episode dealing with Felicity's back story would be titled "Oracle", with many speculating that it could mean we'd get to meet Barbara Gordon. Well, the episode has a new title, and you can find it here...

It was always unlikely, but the fact that an upcoming episode of Arrow would be called "Oracle" did make it seem as if we could see a young Barbara Gordon make some sort of cameo appearance (especially as it will reportedly deal with Felicity's time at MIT). Well, forget that Birds of Prey spin-off for the time being as Entertainment Weekly have revealed that it has now been retitiled, "The Secret Origin of Felicity Smoak." The episode will still see the introduction of Felicity's mother - played by NYPD Blue's Charlotte Ross - and some hints about the fan favourite characters father too. "We’ve established in the past that mom is a cocktail waitress in Vegas," executive producer Marc Guggenheim told the site. "She and Felicity are two very different people. Episode 5, which is when Felicity’s mom comes to town, really deals with the differences between these two women and how much of their relationship is a struggle as a result. It’s a real challenge for these two people to find some common ground." As for Felicity’s father, he added: "The mystery of who Felicity’s dad is probably gets extended more than it gets answered." Any early thoughts on who which comic book character her father could be?

That's a long ass title
GuardianAngel - 8/18/2014, 1:48 PM
I like it. Sounds like something Felicity would come up with.
Hellsboy - 8/18/2014, 1:51 PM
Her dad must be a shady dude.....wait a minute shady? And ras is the big bad this season oh my god felicity is ras al ghuls daughter!??!!!! Confirmed lol

The title was probably changed after people assumed Zatanna would show up in the Magician episode. They don't want people thinking Batgirl will show up and the title is kind of misleading for DC fans.
RextheKing - 8/18/2014, 1:55 PM
I don't see the point in the title change, or why its soon damn long. "Felcity's origin" would have worked just fine.
Gusto - 8/18/2014, 1:57 PM
I still haven't watched all the
DVR'd episodes of this show.
But, you jackasses were right...
Breaking Bad is [frick]in' awesome.
Gusto - 8/18/2014, 1:58 PM
I'm friggin' hooked on Heisenburg.
Kevwebsz - 8/18/2014, 1:59 PM
Yea sounds a lot like she came up with it
COREY6487 - 8/18/2014, 1:59 PM
shes so annoying... i used to like her and thought her personality was cute first season but now its just annoying. she needs to act normal.
GirlRage - 8/18/2014, 1:59 PM
They have to replace that 'mom' element that was lost last season. It'll balance out the show again. Green Arrow missing his mom and their problems will just switch over to Felicity and her mom problems.
shabat - 8/18/2014, 1:59 PM
You haven't watched that yet Gusto? Holy [frick] you are in for a ride.

Also, the ads on the mobile are the suck too. Damn I hate looking at this site on my phone...but alas, this site knows I must....
cipher - 8/18/2014, 2:01 PM
Ha, you started Breaking Bad, Gus? I actually just finished the first season last week.

I'm pretty f*ckin' late to the party, haha.
GirlRage - 8/18/2014, 2:02 PM

Because Rex.......It's a secret.

blackandyellow - 8/18/2014, 2:04 PM
I've never seen an episode of Breaking Bad or The Walking Dead. Both those shows look horrible to me.

Doopie - 8/18/2014, 2:05 PM
it has some precedent

thebearjew - 8/18/2014, 2:06 PM
they'll never allow babs or commissioner Gordon on it
becuz they'll be on that gotham show and it would confuse people
McGee - 8/18/2014, 2:06 PM

Ooooooh.....that's what I thought too. Especially Breaking Bad. Avoided it for a long time.

The Walking Dead I saw from the beginning because it came out on Halloween and it was something to watch while passing out candy while visiting family.
thebearjew - 8/18/2014, 2:07 PM people care who felicitys parents are??
not trying to be a downer or anything but do people care about that?
McGee - 8/18/2014, 2:07 PM
Breaking Bad was unbelievably good. And it wasn't even an HBO show.
COREY6487 - 8/18/2014, 2:12 PM

don waste your time on walking dead... its [frick]ing awful and the most overrated show ever. i cannot believe how much people love it. maybe cause i hate the zombie genre. the only zombie movies i liekd were zombieland and shaun of the dead.

give BB a shot though. just one season to see if you like it. it gets better and better but if you dont like the first season theres no point continuing.
blackandyellow - 8/18/2014, 2:12 PM
Breaking Bad is the show with the guy from Malcolm in the Middle. Yeah ... not watching it.
sKeemAn - 8/18/2014, 2:16 PM

yeah that show is the shit
Pasto - 8/18/2014, 2:17 PM
I'm all about dat base.
Klone - 8/18/2014, 2:18 PM
You're a funny [foo foo], aren't you, grif?
DrKinsolving - 8/18/2014, 2:19 PM

Your missing out man, Breaking Bad was amazing.... Cranston owned the role, so did the rest of the cast and the writing was incredible
CherryBomb - 8/18/2014, 2:20 PM
Felicity's got a MILF

Pasto - 8/18/2014, 2:21 PM
Klone's comment threw me off, lmao.
Pasto - 8/18/2014, 2:21 PM
CherryBomb - 8/18/2014, 2:25 PM
Never seen Breaking Bad either... Shock, horror.
sKeemAn - 8/18/2014, 2:36 PM
For those who haven't seen Breaking Bad. It is worth your time, effort, and money to watch that show. Breaking Bad is up there with Sopranos in my book .
MercwithMouth - 8/18/2014, 2:40 PM
I've never seen Breaking Bad either. But Dexter is the greatest show of all time.
Dmon - 8/18/2014, 2:51 PM
Please kill Felicity this season. Kill her Dead!
CaptainDC52 - 8/18/2014, 2:52 PM
Good move. The Batfamily is off limits. And Felicity is NOT Oracle.
Irisharmyguy79 - 8/18/2014, 3:00 PM
Im thinking someone from the Justice Society is going to end up as her dad like alan scott, jay garrick, ted knight etc. Id almost say it would be possible ted grant being her mom is from vegas and hes a former boxer but I think they're going younger with his character based on casting.
MyloSteamwitz - 8/18/2014, 3:07 PM
What's with the thumbnail? Is... is that porn?
DanoTheOld - 8/18/2014, 3:20 PM
I don't think Ras is the father. I like Alan Scott for her daddy, or maybe the original Atom (forgot his name). I'm thinking her dad is going to be a scientist of some type. She doesn't seem to get her intelligence from her mother.
typicalfanboy - 8/18/2014, 3:37 PM
so is her dad like important to the show or is he a dc character? isn't she firestorm's step mom in teh comics?
Dingbat - 8/18/2014, 3:44 PM

Dexter is my favorite of all time. You should give Breaking Bad a shot though. I will say that season 2 of BB was almost impossible to sit through for me.
NovaCorpsFan - 8/18/2014, 3:52 PM
Get outta here with your Dexter, your Breaking Bad, Walking Dead or whatever the [frick] else you lot consider good telly!

Auf Wiedersehn Pet is where it's at, man. Classic British comedy at it's [frick]ing epitome.
