Arrow Scoop: Look Who's Returning!

by at . Comments

Attention, Arrow fans: you have not seen the last of a certain female vigilante in Starling City.

Following the panel for his upcoming CBS drama Golden Boy at today's Television Critics Association press tour, the busy producer was asked about this Stephen Amell-anchored drama and confirmed viewers WILL, indeed, see Jessica De Gouw’s Helena once again.

“She’s going to come back,” Berlanti said. “We’re just writing that episode right now.”

As for just how The Huntress may re-enter Oliver Queen’s life, Berlanti only teased: “We like to think of her as the crazy ex-girlfriend. So if you can only imagine the turns…her mission isn’t done or complete yet. She wanted to kill her Dad and he’s still alive.”

Berlanti also expressed his pleasure with how Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards) has become a fan favorite.

"Those are always the best. That’s the great part about TV, in terms of fans.” he said, adding that “she’s got some great storylines coming up and becomes an even more integral and active part of the dynamic of the show.”

Arrow returns with new episodes next Wednesday at 8/7c on The CW.

There definitely needed to be more Felicity arcs- the awkward scenes weren't enough. She'd make a hell of a team with the GA.


I'm happy to hear that there will be more Felicity storylines. I like the character, I think she has more chemistry with Oliver than Laurel or Helena, not to mention snappier dialogue, and it would be nice to have her on Arrow's side. (Laurel's "I don't have any respect for you Oliver; why can't you be more like the vigilante who saves the city" is way too overdone.)


Hopefully they kill her off this time 'round.
