The third season premiere of this CW smash will feature Felicity going on a date with Oliver (as teased in the trailer below), while the series is also planning a number of Felicity-centric flashbacks.

"We are absolutely going to get to know her," teases executive producer Marc Guggenheim. "We know that she went to MIT, we know that her mom was a cocktail waitress in Vegas and we're going to meet that mom. And we also know that her dad is not in the picture."

Arrow returns for Season 3 on Wednesday, October 8 at 8/7c on The CW.
