A lot of fans are speculating who it is that Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) is grieving for in the sneak peek released for the next “Arrow” episode. While many fans believe that the grave he is standing next to, as seen in the sneak peek of the next episode, belongs to Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards), others say that Felicity will have a different path to take soon since she is rumored to become The Oracle.
In the midseason finale of “Arrow,” Felicity was seen shot just right after Oliver’s proposal, and several theories about the IT genius’ fate have surfaced the Internet. According to Movie Pilot , Ollie’s girlfriend may become The Oracle. Since Black Canary (Katie Cassidy) and the Huntress (Jessica De Gouw) already made their appearance on the show, The Oracle is the only one left not featured in “Arrow,” out of the “Birds of Prey” trio, and fans wonder if Felicity will assume that role. It will be interesting to see how the writers of the series will incorporate The Oracle’s story as Felicity in the “Arrow” universe, if the rumors are true, since The Oracle was originally Barbara Gordon from Batman.
According to Enstarz , Felicity’s death is also heavily speculated because of the preview that was released for the upcoming episode, which is titled “Blood Debts.” The website said that there are strong hints that Felicity now lies six feet under, which will push Oliver to revenge in the next half of the season. Fans are definitely excited to see what will happen next to Felicity and the rest of the characters, since the midseason premiere will dictate how the rest of the season will flow.
“Arrow” season 4 episode 10 was directed by Jesse Warn and written by Oscar Balderrama and Sarah Tarkoff. The show will be back this Jan. 20, 2016 on The CW network.
