ARROW: Stephen Amell On Season Three, Felicity And More

Stephen Amell, star of The CW's Arrow, looks ahead to season 3, particularly the growing Olicity romance. Said Amell, "Oliver has one woman this year. That woman is Felicity."

At SDCC, Stephen Amell talks about Arrow season 3, answering unanswered questions from previous seasons and filming the scene that involves the return of Tommy Merlyn actor, Colin Donnel. Interesting enough, Amell also touched on the number of women Oliver Queen will be dating this season. In the past, Oliver has gotten a bit of a bad wrap about being such a womanizer, it seemed that anytime a beautiful woman, outside of the Queen family appeared on the show, it was safe to automatically assume that she was going to sleep with Oliver. It seems that Arrow season 3 will mark a decided shift in that area of Oliver's life, in fact, Amell says that Oliver will only date one woman this season. Seeing that the first episode of Arrow season 3 begins with Oliver and Felicty Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards) going on a date, should we assume that the one woman in Oliver's life this season is his former assistant? Yes. Said Amell, "Oliver has one woman this year. That woman is Felicity. There's some of the stuff we do in premiere, regardless of if that means Felicity and I are going to be together, if I meant what I said in the [season 2] finale - we talk about some pretty important stuff in the [season 3] premiere, [if] we're going to have a fling it would undermine some of that. So, I think the count [of Oliver's] women, is going to slow down for the first time."

I like the tension. They shouldn't have a "fling." Kind of like on X-Files with Scully and Mulder....let it go for a long time. Don't give in to Olicity fans.

I'm in my mind imagining their intimate time...I love Felicity, ok, I replaced him with me, hey, it's my day-dream...

I hope to The Lord above that "The Arrow" gets a costume upgrade.

That sounds good. I also want to know will Felicity be the daughter of the other Felicity Smoak? Because with Ronnie joining Flash as Firestorm in the comics Felicity is his stepmother.

I think Felicity is going to be the one who dies at the end of this season.

I've tried to watch this show a few times without success... But, damn if there isn't some fine women on this show. A couple are on par with Chloe Bennett. Good on ya Arrow.

Oliver sees a VERSION OF HIMSELF, which leads to the conflict with Diggle...the father to be....Oliver has a son....

Love this show...!!!

NOOOOOOO!!! Don't want Felicity & Oliver to get together. It isn't going to last. Sometime by mid season 4 or season 5, Oliver is gonna hook back up with Laurel who will be Black Canary by then. His true love. So Felicity is either gonna be left out (heartbroken), leave Star(ling) City, or die.

He seems like a really cool dude who genuinely loves what he does. Thats always nice to see. I'm not a big fan of oliver and felicity getting together. He needs someone as bad ass as him. If they hook up it won't end well for her only way to clean that up would be to write her off.

This show won't be shit until they bring in green lantern g'nort
XF14 - 7/31/2014, 8:42 AM
You know what would be really nice? If they stop trying to make him be involved with someone.
BillyM67 - 7/31/2014, 9:22 AM
I like the show, but I do wish Amell was a better actor, especially considering he's the lead.
Archgoat - 7/31/2014, 10:13 AM
I wish they would stop shoving this romance crap down our throats. But what can you do when big portion of viewership consist of teenage girls.
DCGuy - 7/31/2014, 10:42 AM
LOL everyone gets bootay! on this show
Newmantoplease - 7/31/2014, 11:17 AM
@ grifdeadpoolteabag - okay , i never comment on this site but you sir are a GENIUS . lol I've been saying this for the longest , the only reason felicity is liked so much is because shes funny , dudes wanna bang her , and nerd girls see themselves in her . thats all . lmao
soforizo - 7/31/2014, 2:07 PM
Mix feelings on this. I like that they listen to the fans, except when I don't agree with said fans. This whole BS sounds as a result from kowtowing to the fangirls. Sickening.

This will be interesting...they have great playful chemistry, romantic chemistry not so much. And Oliver is a slut period, leave well enough alone. In all honesty Felicity is too good for him. After smashing all them chicks, thirsty for Oliver is the last thing she should be.
Buzzy - 7/31/2014, 2:23 PM
Felicity deserves more than just being a love interest

At least they are working on Laurel's journey to become black canary

Get THAT son! Lord knows I want to...

It won't last. Laurel is Oliver's Lois Lane.

@grifdeadpool you are on the money sir! ...Except though Emily Bett Rickards is a fox even in real life!
PeterParker1991 - 8/1/2014, 6:45 AM
@JillyMcBeam: Laurel is about as lame as Lana from S-ville. Olicity forever!!!
MarvelMistress - 8/1/2014, 11:52 AM
There's so much going on in this season, and it hasn't even started yet! I don't even know what to think anymore
JillyMcBeam - 8/1/2014, 2:21 PM

You may say that, but deep down inside you know it will end up being Laurel and Oliver, and in the end, you will be okay with that.
ZhouTong - 8/1/2014, 4:17 PM
Laurel sucks and is annoying. So was Sara for that matter.
PeterParker1991 - 8/2/2014, 4:21 PM
@JillyMcBeam: No, not really. I really don't like Laurel. Sara is ALREADY a trained warrior. It'd take years for Laurel to come even close to her level. It'd be a waste.
JillyMcBeam - 8/2/2014, 4:56 PM

It would be interesting to see Laurel build up into the character that she is supposed to be. You know, have her build character, training, get stronger every season. The show runners already said she'll be the Canary in the end.
