When we ended season five of Arrow for the mid-season finale, Oliver (Stephen Amell) ended up killing Felicity‘s (Emily Bett Rickards) boyfriend, detective Billy Malone (Tyler Ritter). Felicity didn’t blame Oliver, she in fact even said she blamed Prometheus.
When Arrow returns on The CW this January 25 we will see Felicity dealing with the loss of her boyfriend. This will cause her to go down a dark path seeking revenge, by killing Prometheus.
EP Wendy Mericle told TVLine, “This season we have said we’re going to take her to a darker place and you’re seeing the genesis of the reason why, right here.”
It will be interesting to see how dark they will take Felicity and it will be interesting to see how the team handles this different side. Remember season five continues on The CW, starting Wednesday, January 25.
