Arrow Season 3 Episode 5 Preview: Smoak and Mirrors

at .

We have never known much about Felicity Smoak.

She was, however, well-known by Harrison Wells when she visited The Flash Season 1 Episode 4. While we still only have limited information on what's to come, these pictures are going to blow you away.

Is the Felicity we know and love all smoke and mirrors? If these photos show a shot into her past, five years ago hacking with a friend named Cooper Seldon (ahem), then the whole geeky blonde in eyeglasses getup is sort of her own version of Clark Kent.

Arrow Season 3 Episode 5 is titled "The Secret Origin of Felicity Smoak." Nothing had me prepared for what was in the photos. Will the installment live up to what we see here? They must be flashbacks to when she created the program being used against them. 

Charlotte Ross as her mother, Donna? Golden.

Elsewhere expect Oliver to be very angry that Thea is buying an apartment with money from Malcolm's "estate." Which he now knows doesn't really exist, since Malcolm's alive. Maybe that will clue Oliver into his sister's recent actions.

Laurel appears to be training hard, but expect Ted Grand to question her motives. What? She doesn't want to be a professional boxer? Who knew? 

Be back here on Wednesday for a full review of the installment and be sure to watch Arrow online if you need to catch up!
