If you’re an Arrow fan, you’re either in the Olicity crowd or the “dear God, no” crowd. Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Felicity’s (Emily Bett Rickards) relationship has divided the fan base for seasons now. Currently, Olicity is the thing of the past, but if the teases and moments Oliver and Felicity shared at the end of the season 5 are any indication, the pair could come back together.
To throw a potential wrench into things, Rickards and Katie Cassidy – who played Laurel Lance and who now plays Black Siren – entertained the idea of a Felicity-Oliver-Black Siren love triangle, and both said they think the idea has potential.
While answering questions at a Heroes & Villains Fan Fest in London over the past weekend, the two Arrow stars were asked what they thought about the idea of such a love triangle.
Emily Bett Rickards seems to be on board with the idea, saying “I wanna watch it. I’d watch that show!”
Chiming in, Cassidy said: “That’s interesting. That would be a really interesting dynamic. I don’t know why, maybe it’s because we’re so close, but it’s so fun playing my Black Siren against Felicity. I just think this whole other thing comes out of me.”
Even though both Rickards and Cassidy aren’t opposed to the idea, the thought of such a love triangle might just make at least half the Arrow fandom implode. Plus, Black Siren is a relatively new character without a lot of established backstory, so there’s a lot more work to be done with the character, and it’s doubtful the Arrow writers would even consider having Oliver fall for her – even if she does have Laurel’s face. Still, it is Arrow and crazier things have happened.
Arrow Season 6 will begin sometime in October in its new time slot: Thursday nights at 9/8c on The CW.
