arrow au: hi, i’m felicity, and this is my life. felicity smoak is just a normal it girl working at village tech, when one day she gets an email from an old college friend who’s supposed to be dead; that email is filled with government secrets that get stuck in her brain. now, with the help and protection of cia’s oliver queen and nsa’s john diggle, this fledgling spy will use her brain to diffuse bombs, stop criminals and save the world…and maybe fall in love in the process. all in a day’s work.
“One of the things that I’m most proud about is that, 25 years from now, if they made a Green Arrow film, they would have to make it with John Diggle and Felicity Smoak… I would hope that if you were looking at the blueprint of how to do a successful Arrow show, people would be like, ‘Yeah, you have to have those characters – those characters are a part of it now.’”
Arrow’s sixth season ended with a major status change for Team Arrow when Oliver Queen was taken off to prison in exchange for help stopping Ricardo Diaz. However, one of the show’s stars doesn’t think Oliver will be away from the team for long.
In an appearance at Oz Comic-Con in Melbourne, Australia this weekend, David Ramsey told fans that he expected that his character, John Diggle, and Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) would be reunited sooner rather than later.
“You know they’ll get back together soon,” Ramsey said. “My man can’t stay away from me too long. My boo boo gotta come home.”
“Regarding my character, I can only share with you that he is still working at Argus with Lyla, and teaming up with the others once in a while to take down Diaz once for all. But, many things happen, there are some huge twists that nobody saw coming. It’s so good…I’m so sad I cannot tell you more.”
