Many of the flashbacks in the first two seasons of Arrow focused on Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) and his time on a dangerous island. But it looks like the show could spend some more time exploring the pasts of other characters in Season 3, specifically Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards). To that end, the show has cast Felicity's mother!
TV Guide first reported exclusively that former NYPD Blue star Charlotte Ross will play Felicity's mom in at least one episode in early November. Details, of course, are under wraps, including the character's name and whether she'd appear in flashbacks or in the present day.
Ross has also appeared in Nashville, Glee and Days of Our Lives.
TV Guide previously reported that Arrow is planning a series of flashbacks focused on Felicity that producers called "the secret origin of Felicity Smoak." Fans learned at Comic-Con that the Felicity-centric episode would be called "Oracle."
"We are absolutely going to get to know her," executive producer Marc Guggenehim said. "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."
What do you think, Arrow fans? Will Felicity's mother show up in flashbacks, the present day or both? What mysteries about Felicity's past will come to light? Will any of these mysteries connect to Oliver or affect Felicity's relationship with him? Let us know your thoughts and guesses in the comments below.© 2019 Mstars News, All rights reserved.
