The fifth mid-season finale of Arrow concluded with the sinister Prometheus successfully tricking Oliver Queen into killing Felicity Smoak’s boyfriend, marking the beginning of a dark path for the usually optimistic heroine. The beginnings of Felicity’s new road began with her collusion with the hacking team named Helix. In an interview with TVLine, series lead Stephen Amell discussed Oliver’s reaction to Felicity’s secrets and hinted at a potential conflict between both characters.
Amell explained where Oliver stands with Felicity and her new allies.
“Look, he does trust her, but that doesn’t mean he has to agree with her.”
Amell hinted at a potential conflict between the two friends.
“You could almost call it ‘Team Arrow vs. Team Felicity’.”
Amell explained the reason behind the conflict between Oliver and Felicity.
“[They] are both after the same objective, but after it in different ways. And that pushes us into a real exploration of why Oliver and Felicity have been behaving the way that they’ve been behaving this year.”
