‘Arrow’ Showrunner Confirms Series Will Reveal Mystery Behind Felicity’s Future Death

Arrow Emily Bett Rickards Felicity Smoak

Arrow fans will soon learn the truth behind the future death of Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards).

Arrow fans received some pretty shocking news at the beginning of season seven. Fan-favorite character and computer whiz Felicity is dead in the near future and her time beside the Green Arrow is coming to an end.

Showrunner Beth Schwartz sat down for an interview with TV Guide and talked about how the mystery behind her demise might soon be revealed.

“We’re going to learn a lot about it in the next couple of episodes, but definitely [Episode] 16 is going to be the answer to that mystery and what’s been going on in the Glades.

In [Episode] 10, actually, we see the Glades for the first time, and we meet Rene (Rick Gonzalez) in the future, which is exciting. We get to see, as terrible as Star City is, the Glades is a booming city, and that’s the happy place of the future. And Rene has a lot to do with that. So we’ll see that in 10 and then, yeah, the next couple episodes will start answering a lot of these questions.”

Viewers learn early on that Felicity has taken on her late father’s alias “The Codebreaker” and it’s possible that her death could have come from getting in too deep with criminals. There is also a small possibility that her death could be a hoax in order to protect her mission.

When asked about such details Schwartz said this:

“Well, I definitely can’t say yes or no to that, but there’s definitely a lot more to that mystery that will unravel in the next few episodes, especially in 16.”
