WOW tonight’s episode of Arrow was crazy and crazy misleading!
“After tonight’s “Arrow” winter finale really tried to paint the picture of Felicity Smoak being dead in a brutal Christmastime shooting, the promo for the January 20 return of the show almost enters full-on trolling mode. The CW is somewhat infamous at this point for releasing misleading trailers for this show, but this one easily takes the cake.
After watching this, it’s pretty understandable that you would think that Felicity had been killed. The promo edits in some of Oliver’s comments in the infamous graveside flash-forward into some footage of her being rushed to the hospital, and then at the end, he is standing in front of a grave. It all looks bad, but given that you never saw the name on the front of the grave we are 99% confident that this is misleading.
For one, we cannot imagine “Arrow” getting rid of Oliver’s new fiancée right after he started to lie to her about having a son out there; that’s something that even now, he is not bothering to tell her for some reason. Also, can you imagine the revolts from the Olicity ‘shippers? We do think that the show needs to restore some of the fun into the relationship that it had through the first couple of seasons, but that’s the only change we would recommend for it.” -Carter Matt
As for who are real candidates to die, we’re worried more about people like
Quentin Lance (This is my choice, someone who Oliver would get choked up about, angry about, someone who Barry wouldn’t be late for his funeral which wouldn’t happen if Felicity Dies)
Malcolm Merlyn (screws him over again, and again and again especially when it cam to Vandal Savage)
Thea Queen (I don’t care how out of control she gets, I don’t think that there is anything that would keep Oliver from saving his little sister. He was the one who put her in the Lazarus pit, if anything a visit from Constantine might be more fit! Or she may kill Malcom being that he is the new Ra’s)
Donna Smoak (This could happen but I don’t think so)
Lyla Michaels (More probable than Felicity)
Roy Harper – Colton Haynes will be rejoining the cast of Arrow at some point this season. This is going to be my second pick. Barry knows him, but not well. Damien doesn’t seem to know that Oliver Queen is The Green Arrow. But Roy proclaimed that he was. This would be a highly emotional arc for team arrow and for Thea. Roy faked his death and everything for Oliver. Forgetting this could be a big mistake.
I honestly do not believe that they would kill off Felicity. Though their relationship is not out of the comic book it is a ship that keeps the boat floating… We really do want Felicity to be more … Felicity than she is this season but I would hedge a big bet that this was misdirection.
Guess we’ll see in a month and a half!
