New plot details have surfaced about Emily Bett Rickards in the final season of Stephen Amell’s Arrow.
While Emily Bett Rickards might have left Arrow before the final season, she’ll still have an impact on Stephen Amell’s last story arc as Oliver Queen. But it seems like Emily Bett Rickards’ absence will not only affect Oliver, but Mia too. The upcoming season will follow Stephen Amell’s Oliver Queen as he struggles to deal with his new mission from The Monitor, and it’s one that he’ll struggle to undertake without Emily Bett Rickards’ Felicity Smoak by his side.
TV Line dropped some new information about Emily Bett Rickards’ role in Arrow season eight this week. When asked if Felicity would be mentioned or not, the site explained that the other characters will try and live up to her example, while also mentioning that Stephen Amell’s Oliver Queen still holds out hope that they’ll find each other on Arrow again.
“While Oliver in the present timeline holds onto the hope that, as Felicity said, they will find each other again, Future Mia will struggle to do right by Mom. On top of learning how to be part of a team alongside Connor, Zoe et al (“Mia does not play well with others!”), Katherine McNamara points out that Mia “is not used to having to look out for anyone but herself, and she promised her mother that she would protect William. But she can’t fight for him, so that’s real fear, and it’s something she doesn’t know how to handle. It’s quite the learning curve!”

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. He returned home to Star City, bent on righting the wrongs done by his family and fighting injustice. As the Green Arrow, Oliver successfully saved his city with the help of his team including former soldier John Diggle (David Ramsey), computer-science expert Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards), former protégé Roy Harper (Colton Haynes), street-savvy Rene Ramirez (Rick Gonzalez), metahuman Dinah Drake (Juliana Harkavy), brilliant inventor Curtis Holt (Echo Kellum) and Earth-2 Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy). 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.
Arrow stars Stephen Amell, David Ramsey, Echo Kellum, Rick Gonzalez, Juliana Harkavy, Kirk Acevedo, Sea Shimooka, and Katie Cassidy Rodgers.
