There’s just two episodes left of “Arrow” Season 4, and the cast is already teasing some minor details about where the CW series will leave off ahead of Season 5. One of the biggest questions the show will need to address is the on-again-off-again romance between two of its key characters.
Speaking to Mirror U.K. actor David Ramsey, who plays The Green Arrow’s trusty sidekick John Diggle, confessed that the saga between Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) and Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) will be addressed again in the Season 4 finale. As fans know, when Oliver’s secrets proved too much for her to deal with, Felicity walked out and left her engagement ring behind. Soon after, she realized that she simply cannot be a part of Team Arrow because it’s too painful, but the current nuclear crisis going on in Star City has temporarily allowed her to put those feelings aside. According to Ramsey, that will continue through the finale.
“I think it’s good she’s taking time for herself, I think we’ve seen a stronger Felicity and that’s great. She should be like, ‘Hey Oliver I need some time man, just give me some space,’” he told the outlet. “You’ll see movement in the right direction, but you won’t get everything you want.”
When specifically asked if they would have the wedding they’ve been talking about for so long, the 44-year-old confirmed that there wouldn’t be a big ceremony but that the characters might make up after their tough squabble. Given that the fate of the world is on the line, it may change their perspectives about romance.
Meanwhile, the group’s fragmentation might continue as the team’s other power-player, Thea Queen (Willa Holland), may split off to become something a bit more sinister in Season 5. Currently, the character is being tempted to join the dark side, as it were, by her father Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman). Throughout the past two seasons, the character has been called on by her father to abandon vigilante justice with Team Arrow and seek a higher calling with her abilities. Now that the villain Damien Darhk (Neal McDonough) is planning to destroy the world, executive producer Wendy Mericle says the character may finally start listening.
“Thea had bloodlust earlier in the season and since then has been questioning her place on the team, and questioning whether or not she is Speedy, which goes back to her character's struggle with whether she's more of a Queen or a Merlyn," Mericle told TV Guide. "She's going to answer that question in [the finale] and come up with, what we hope, is a pretty surprising answer."
With Oliver and Felicity mending fences and Thea toying with the idea of leaving the team to become a villain, fans will just have to wait until the finale airs next week at 8 p.m. EDT on the CW.
