ARROW EP On The Oliver And Felicity Relationship After The Mid-Season Finale
Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg discusses the new wrinkle in the Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) and Oliver (Stephen Amell) relationship following the formers flirtation with Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) in the mid-season finale.
It seems Oliver Queen always has several possibilities when it comes to his love life on The CW's Arrow. However, Felicity is the fan favorite romantic choice for the Starling City vigilante and those shippers may get their wish thanks to the events of the mid-season finale. In the wake of Felicity's playful relationship with Barry Allen, feelings of jealous may have awoken in Oliver. Said Kreisberg to TV Guide, "Oliver isn't quite sure what he feels. He knows he feels something for her, but can't quite define it. He's surprised in [the mid-season finale] when Dig [David Ramsey] points out to him that what [he's] feeling right now might actually be termed jealousy. For Felicity, she doesn't want to like Oliver in a way because she finds him unattainable, and in a way he is unattainable especially after... he said that it's probably better that [he's] not with somebody he cares about. While she really does like Barry, I think she probably throws even more into it because now he's somebody who is available. The fallout from Episode 9 carries over into the next episodes as far as the Oliver and Felicity relationship is concerned. Barry has had a profound effect on them, and that will carry through."
If we know that Oliver is destined to end up with Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy) what does that mean for any budding relationship with Felicity? If things do get serious for Arrow and his tech assistant, how would things evolve and ultimately deteriorate to where Oliver ends up in Laurel's arms? I'm sure these are the very questions currently being asked in the Arrow writer's room. But perhaps they have the answer already as there are rumblings that Oliver and Felicity will share a kiss in the back-half of season 2.
Arrow returns from mid-season hiatus on January 15th.

|"After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the Pacific. When he returns home to Starling City, his devoted mother Moira, much-beloved sister Thea, and best friend Tommy welcome him home, but they sense Oliver has been changed by his ordeal on the island. While Oliver hides the truth about the man he’s become, he desperately wants to make amends for the actions he took as the boy he was. Most particularly, he seeks reconciliation with his former girlfriend, Laurel Lance. As Oliver reconnects with those closest to him, he secretly creates the persona of Arrow – a vigilante – to right the wrongs of his family, fight the ills of society, and restore Starling City to its former glory. By day, Oliver plays the role of a wealthy, carefree and careless philanderer he used to be – flanked by his devoted chauffeur/bodyguard, John Diggle – while carefully concealing the secret identity he turns to under cover of darkness. However, Laurel’s father, Detective Quentin Lance, is determined to arrest the vigilante operating in his city. Meanwhile, Oliver’s own mother, Moira, knows much more about the deadly shipwreck than she has let on – and is more ruthless than he could ever imagine."|
