As it stands, the appearance of Emily Bett Rickards’ Felicity Smoak suggests either a “happily ever after” sort of ending for the original Green Arrow, or a more somber, bittersweet conclusion. With the show set to wrap up soon, fans won’t have too long to wait to find out.
Here is the official synopsis for the final season of Stephen Amell’s Arrow:
After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the North China Sea.

In the wake of discovering what his future holds, Oliver will find himself pit against his most challenging battle yet, one that will leave the multiverse hanging in the balance. In Arrow’s final season, Oliver Queen is forced to confront the reality of what it means to be a hero.
