When Arrow returns for season 2, expect to see some developments between fan-favorite non-couple Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards).
“I think a part of Felicity’s arch this season is realizing that she can enunciate her feelings for Oliver — not necessarily to Oliver, but you know, I think she’s going to be dealing with that,” says exec producer Andrew Kreisberg, who adds that “you’ve got to tease fans just the right amount.”
Olicity fans shouldn’t get too excited, though. Kreisberg says Oliver won’t be the only man on the IT girl’s radar.
“Felicity is going to have a surprising love interest this season coming down the pike,” teases the exec producer.
And so might Oliver. Though he got back together with ex Laurel (Katie Cassidy) last season, there could always be a fresh set of sparks between Starling City’s resident vigilante and one of the many new characters — like, say, the Black Canary (Caity Lotz) — headed to season 2.
“I think that any woman on this show whose last name isn’t Queen is a potential love interest for Oliver,” says Kreisberg. “Part of the fun of these early episodes is seeing that there are some new women and old women in Oliver’s life and guessing which way the arrow of his heart is going to take him.”
Who do you want to see Oliver get together with in season 2?
