With Oliver Queen now being behind bars, one can only imagine how difficult life for Team Arrow will be when season 7 kicks off. In fact, we learned just this week that Felicity will (obviously) take her man’s incarceration hardest when new showrunner Beth Schwartz teased the possible arrival of Smoak Technologies sometime over the course of the next year.
Of course, none of us anticipate for the heroes of Star City to sit on their hands for much longer because the fanbase expects to see insane action whenever they tune in. And if the latest piece of photographic evidence is any indicator, then Felicity may find herself out in the field in the very near future.
I say that because Katie Cassidy, Black Siren herself, recently Tweeted out a picture taken with her co-star, Emily Bett Rickards, in which they’re both puckering for the camera. Though I imagine they both enjoyed this “lovefest moment” as Cassidy put it, it’s hard not noticing that Rickards looks a little banged up.
If I were to hazard a guess, Felicity will endure some sort of injury within the first few episodes, but it’s hard to forecast much more than that because the producers are keeping their cards so close to the vest. Either way, it’ll be exciting to see whatever new territory they chart.
Whether the peace and love witnessed on social media carries over to the small screen remains to be seen, but all signs do point toward us seeing a more heroic Black Siren this fall. If so, I’m very much excited to see Earth-2’s Laurel Lance fighting side by side with the rest of the gang.
Arrow returns for its seventh season on Monday, October 15 on The CW.
