Felicity dated Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh) even when Oliver professed his feelings for her. The two superheroes ended up friends and allies in fighting bad elements in Star City.
The cast of Arrow Season 5 sat down with TV Line during the San Diego Comic Con 2016 recently and revealed some details on what to expect in the upcoming season.
Emily Bett Rickards, who plays the tech genius Felicity, confirmed that there is a new love interest coming in for her character. The actress has teased that fans will meet the new man in Felicity’s life very soon.
Amell said Oliver will be fine with it and will grieve in private. However, he also hinted that Arrow might do the opposite. “We meet him in episode one. He dies in act four… He got shot with an arrow in the head. [But] don’t look at me!” Amell exclaimed.
