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."
