Team Arrow Previews 'The End of a Chapter,' Oliver's Reaction to a Harsh Truth, Felicity's New (Marked?!) Man

If Felicity Smoak’s new boyfriend happens to be reading this, lean in and listen closely, dude: RUN.

Because when the cast of The CW’s Arrow visited Michael Ausiello at TVLine’s Comic-Con studio presented by ZTE, it sounded as if a “wayward” projectile might have your name on it.

“We meet him in Episode 1, he dies in Act IV,” series lead Stephen Amell joked of the new man in Miss Smoak’s life. But in actuality, Felicity has taken quite a quick shine to her new beau (in part because she seems to have no pals outside of Curtis, Emily Bett Rickards playfully reminds showrunner Wendy Mericle!)

Kicking off the video Q&A above, Amell previewed “the end of a chapter” — though not the end of the series — seeing as Oliver Queen’s post-island mission has always been to “make Star City a better place.”

Other topics on tap include the effect The Flash‘s Flashpoint storyline has on its sister series (“It has a big impact on the characters it does have an impact on,” teased Mericle), and how John Barrowman plans to juggle multiple versions of Malcolm Merlyn, per his new deal across all the CW superhero shows.
