In a move that may come as a shock for all Arrow fans, fan favourite Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett) may be on her way out of the show. The fate of Ms. Smoak is unconfirmed, but Emily's co-star Colton Haynes (who plays Roy Harper on the show) posted the following image on instagram:
                                        

The caption reads, "Miss this lil lady already! @emilybett. Wrapped season 2 and packed gifts in the back of HER jeep before I took off. This girls goin places"

The most shocking thing about this rumor is that Felicity Smoak has one of the largest fan-following on the show, and  the show's producers had previously hinted that the character may be headed to Flash's Central City to draw fans to that show, and later move back to Starling City. However, if she was only temporarily/permanently moving to Central City to join The Flash, there would be no need for her to relocate or for Colton Haynes to miss her or to "pack her gifts into her car as she's about to leave", cause both the DC Shows will be sharing the same Vancouver Studios and filming locations. Don't we usually give gifts to co-workers who leave for good? Colton Haynes posted another photo on instagram yesterday which had Felicity Smoak in it aswell, but she was noticebly injured in the BTS image. See the image below:
                                             

Right now this is all speculation but,
What are your thoughts?

so many people know who GR is they carpool to the arrow cave. they might as well have bedrooms in that base cause they all seem to live there.

Hate her and Oliver's "relationship". Just feels forced, I do hope she dies though, it'd add more depth to the team, when Tommy died it only really affected Oliver.
Tuuralihn - 4/13/2014, 3:38 AM
I will burn this world to the ground if she leaves.
Kurne - 4/13/2014, 3:39 AM
... Or they/she wrapped early? Amell's got a few days left.

I don't think Colton would risk the backlash from producers by spoiling the finale. I honestly think the season is over and she is going to work on something else before season 3 starts or she is going back to see family.
Faris - 4/13/2014, 3:56 AM
I think it may actually mean, SHE will be the one to die in the season finale :P
Faris - 4/13/2014, 3:57 AM
Or second option - as was said above - she will just relocate to Central City
GentlemanlyBatman - 4/13/2014, 4:08 AM
She is basically Arrow's version of Oracle, it would be wrong to kill her off especially when Birds of Prey have been teased. Maybe she'll move away or something? Bigger worry though, if Slade kills Felicity we can bet Oliver will kill Slade (like he killed Count Vertigo when he tried to harm Felicity). Slade and Felicity are two of the shows best characters: PLEASE NO KILL!

This show is awesome she mite go over to flash for a while or a few episodes but she is not leaving arrow come on lets be real u think they will let her go
MarkJulian - 4/13/2014, 4:20 AM
All that says is Colton Haynes finished his filming for season 2 and helped load Rickards jeep with wrap gifts. How does that translate to Felicity's leaving the show?
HavocMidnight - 4/13/2014, 4:21 AM
But........She's........BEAUTIFUL!!!!!
Doopie - 4/13/2014, 4:21 AM
don't think she'll die but i can see her leaving starling for central, she seems a little disgruntled at the moment. wouldn't read too much into what colton said either. think it just means she's finished her filming
sameoldthing - 4/13/2014, 4:25 AM
NOOOOOOO!!
I hope she doesn't leave,she's great on the show.
loki668 - 4/13/2014, 4:42 AM
Some are calling for her death while others are threatening to burn the Earth down, if she dies. With these options, the responses of our fellow users may be more entertaining (for me) than the show (and I REALLY like the show).
Enphlieuwince - 4/13/2014, 5:23 AM
I get the impression that they just wrapped for the season, had a little company party to celebrate, and Haynes is either sprung over her or her gay BFF.
QuestiontheAnswer - 4/13/2014, 6:16 AM
Why couldn't it be Thea???
Comedian03 - 4/13/2014, 6:49 AM
Or maybe, she's finished filming all of her scenes for Season 2 and is officially done until they start filming season 3.

Isn't that the more likely scenario, instead of just jumping to conclusions and starting a rumor that has absolutely zero basis for any truth, this isn't CosmicBookNews.

Oh the CW .
Arrowhead77 - 4/13/2014, 7:46 AM
Best comic book show on television!

"Wrapped season 2 and packed gifts in the back of HER jeep before I took off. This girls goin places"

Vacationing? Reading into things a bit? Season 2 is finished, time to pack and go.
redrobin1986 - 4/13/2014, 8:15 AM
The Comics book version of Felicity Smoak is Ronnie Raymond AKA Firestorm's Step-Mother. So my be they are temp. writing her out of the show to put her on that path.
CherryBomb - 4/13/2014, 8:26 AM
After filming a show they go on a long break.
So the cast won't see eachother for months. Maybe she's filming a movie or something.

I wouldn't read into it.
Kyos - 4/13/2014, 8:40 AM
Like the others said: I guess they just finished shooting their scenes and won't see each other for a while.

Only "she's leaving Arrow" scenario I think could see would be her character settling over to the Flash show.
JoeMomma29 - 4/13/2014, 8:58 AM
Guys come one she is all packed up ready to come to my house to spend some quality time with me........

Well one can wish dammit!
ComicFan523 - 4/13/2014, 8:59 AM
Felcity is great, I hope she stays on Arrow. I'd be okay with her being on The Flash but I think she belongs on Arrow. She's a cool character and kinda seems like the comic relief sometimes.
LEEE777 - 4/13/2014, 9:00 AM
Good :p

Put her in FLASH yo!
TheDufase19089 - 4/13/2014, 9:03 AM
All this means is that her scenes are done filming and she is going on vacation. Way to start stupid rumors.
DCeddie - 4/13/2014, 9:23 AM
I certainly hope not...I love the bit of goofy humor her character brings to the show...
DrunkenNukem - 4/13/2014, 9:54 AM
Maybe she is going to the Flash show
LEEE777 - 4/13/2014, 10:09 AM
Yup of course shes going to THE FLASH show.

There's too much supporting cast for ARROW anyways and she could be the new TINA McGEE or IRIS?

Also might bring a lot of the fan base over from ARROW too!
codydriscollsrightarm - 4/13/2014, 10:55 AM
Let's think this true:

1 - She's one of the show's most popular characters.

2 - Uh... well, I think one covers it.

She ain't going anywhere.
BoomTubeB - 4/13/2014, 11:19 AM
I guess the finale ep she dies that's why they named it unthinkable! she so hot!
AlSimmons - 4/13/2014, 11:40 AM
This means Barry probably wakes up towards the end of the season.
DCSaysHailHydra - 4/13/2014, 11:48 AM
That literally means nothing. They finished filming for season two and they're going on their own individual vacations. Plus, if Colton actually put his gifts in Emily's jeep, then perhaps the "she's goin' places" line meant to his house, lol.
yonny616 - 4/13/2014, 1:10 PM
Doubt it. Her character is extremely popular with the majority of the shows audience.
SoundWave - 4/13/2014, 1:31 PM
So, we know who will die in the season finale)
Spock0Clock - 4/13/2014, 2:40 PM
But Laurel is still coming back, right?! I don't know if I'd be able to keep watching the show if she didn't constantly bitch at everyone, and have stupid selfish emotional breakdowns every other episode.

Hah, I'm just kidding. Literally every character on this show is boring and stupid except Slade, Sarah, and Roy (and maybe Thea, but I'm on the fence).

Everyone else could literally burn alive in a fire for all I care.



danield222 - 4/13/2014, 3:41 PM
I hope she dies, hate the whole "Olicity" phenomena.
If she lives, she's better suited for Flash.
But i think, this "news" is nothing, they just wrapped season 2 and go on their lives until the shooting of season 3 episode 1.
MercSoul - 4/15/2014, 2:37 PM
Maybey....he will just MISS HER BECAUSE THEY FINISH RECORDING SEASON 2 AND NOW THEY HAVE VACATIONS????
