‘Arrow’ Season 4 Spoiler: Felicity’s Nemesis To Be Introduced

Arrow Cast

“Arrow” season 4 spoiler is pretty scarce ever since the CW Network superhero series ended its third run last month.

Right now, the only thing fans know is that the new big bad will be Ra’s al Ghul’s former nemesis and H.I.V.E. leader. Stephen Amell also once said in an interview his character Oliver Queen will not wear the Arrow costume again.

Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards) did not receive much love last season with some pointing out she has lost her geeky side for becoming the lover of Oliver Queen. In the new season, there is a possibility she will return to her old self.

Based on the “Arrow” season 4 spoiler released by TV Line’s Matt Webb Mitovich, the resident computer genius of Starling City is set to get a nemesis, someone who possesses computer skills like hers. The entertainment website wrote:

“I can’t let good Arrow fans up and die, now, can I? In the second episode of Season 4, the CW hit will introduce the heavily recurring character of a twentysomething African American male who is a technological savant on par with Ms. Smoak. Maybe during Felicity and Oliver’s romantic retreat, Thea/Diggle/Laurel had to recruit a new computer whiz via Craigslist…? UPDATE: Or better, as readers have suggested, he’s Felicity’s H.I.V.E. counterpart/adversary?”

In another “Arrow” season 4 spoiler, John Barrowman, who plays Arrow’s season one nemesis and season three ally Malcolm Merlyn, revealed they will start shooting this July. He added season 4 will have plenty of offerings in the DC world that fans will love.

“We start filming in July, Season Four — I just finalized my deal about a week ago,” Barrowman told an audience at Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con this weekend. “I’m very excited about going back, I can’t tell you anything because I do know a bit about what’s going to happen. But if you love Malcolm Merlyn, if you love Oliver Queen, if you love Thea Queen, if you love the Canary sisters, and I say that with a bit of a twist and a joke in it, you’re going to love what’s going to happen across the DC world.”

Arrow returns this fall.

Pics and Interview of Emily in TKC May 2015

Added 6 MQ pics from Tomboy KC May 2015. The interview is below.

Who says we don’t listen when you ask for something? If we can pull it off, we will.

At your request, for this week we reached out to an actress from a little show we like to call Arrow. You may know her as Felicity (or Lynsey’s doppleganger), we just know her as one badass chick with a closet we wouldn’t mind raiding while she’s out saving Starling City.

But enough about us. Let’s move on to the much anticipated profile of Emily Bett Rickards.

TKC: How did you get your start in acting?
EBR: I started dabbling in musical theatre and became a dedicated copy cat as a kid, but it wasn’t until after high school that I started auditioning for film and TV in Vancouver and also where I started studying with Andrew McIlroy who taught me everything and the importance of absorption and observation.

TKC: What do you find to be the most exciting thing about what you do?
EBR: There’s always that moment when working out a scene, where an unexpected feeling arises in the middle. NO warning just pure accidental discovery and that is the best feeling in the universe.

TKC: If you weren’t an actress, what would you be?
EBR: If you’re asking 3 year old Emily it would be: veterinarian, astronaut or pirate. (Actor was in there too.) I’ve always been interested in psychology as well, so maybe studying human behavior or primates!

TKC: How is Felicity’s style different than Emily’s?
EBR: Felicity is just less ‘athletic’ in terms of style. I love to get dressed up but I rarely wear a dress unless it’s for an occasion. Felicity works out but she never wears a ball cap unless it’s for under cover. We still love each other though.

TKC: Who is your fashion icon?
EBR: Depends on the day.

TKC: Day to day, what are you wearing? Do you have a work uniform of sorts?
EBR: Daily my outfit says “Hi I’m Emily, I look super cute right now but if I had to I could kick your butt with a high kick and survive the zombie apocalypse.” Runners, leggings, sweatshirt. Boom.

TKC: On a day off in Vancouver where can we find you?
EBR: Gym, dog park, beach.

TKC: With spring finally here and summer fast approaching, what are your warm weather must-haves?
EBR: Can’t ever have too many panel hats.

TKC: Are there any trends or looks you are into right now?
EBR: I’m kinda digging the cool colour toned hair – the full head of icy pinks and purples. I love something a little astronomical.

TKC: On the flip side, are there any trends you absolutely loathe?
EBR: Boring socks.

TKC: If we emptied your handbag right now, what would we find?
EBR: Toonie Loonie dog treats (beef apple flavour), sugar lip balm, a pen, vitamin c, lone sock, half a Quest bar, a book, my glasses, another Quest wrapper…

TKC: Mascara or eyeliner?
EBR: Mascara.

TKC: Coffee or tea?
EBR: Coffee but both.

TKC: Lipstick or lipgloss?
EBR: Gloss.

TKC: Twitter or Instagram ?
EBR: Both.

TKC: Favorite item in your closet?
EBR: Nike sweatpants. They need to be washed but I WANT TO WEAR THEM RIGHT NOW.

TKC: Tell us about your average Saturday night? Does it even exist?
EBR: Dinner with friends, in bed by midnight super snuggling my dog.

TKC: Do you look for style inspiration anywhere or do you just wear whatever the hell you want?
EBR: People watching for the win! The streets of New York and London are so abundant with different unique styles. Usually I’ll see something and I’ll know I like it. I like shopping. You name it: online, offline, in line. I love shopping with friends and for friends! I find a lot of inspiration by having a shopping teammate.

TKC: Where are your favorite places to shop?
EBR: Nasty Gal, Wasteland, TopShop, El Kartel.

TKC: Name one beauty product you couldn’t live without.
EBR: MOISTURIZER any kind all the time.

TKC: If you had a motto, what would it be and why?
EBR: Eat pizza! Because everyone likes pizza (even vegans), it always make someone smile if you say it, and its never a lie.

TKC: In high school you would have been voted most likely to…
EBR: Talk my way out of detention.

TKC: What advice would you give 18 year old Emily?
EBR: Don’t rush.

Arrow: Emily Bett Rickards Talks Season 4 and Felicity’s Future

emily

If Arrow wasn’t coming back for another season, the Season 3 finale sure could have functioned as a happy ending for Oliver Queen and Felicity Smoak, as the two took off together, leaving behind their dangerous life for parts unknown and some well deserved time alone.

But Arrow is coming back, which means one way or the other, something will have to happen to bring these two back to Starling City and Oliver back into that mask and hood.

Season 4 doesn’t begin filming until later this summer, which means for now, the cast don’t know what’s coming next, but when I spoke to Emily Bett Rickards at the Upfronts in New York last month, she had a few amusing thoughts on where Arrow left the characters. We spoke about where Oliver and Felicity might be going, the struggle to keep a couple strong on a TV show once you move from “will they or won’t they?” into “they’re together” and whether Felicity’s use of the Atom suit in the finale could lead to something more in terms of an alter ego for her character.

IGN: I guess that’s it. Oliver and Felicity are just going to take off. Maybe they’ll send a postcard every once in a while?

Rickards: Maybe! Maybe they’ll send it back to Thea and she’ll rip it and be like, “I’m too busy for this.” Then she’ll throw it up in the air as confetti in the Foundry, which will be new because there is no Foundry any more. So we don’t know where her lair is going to be.

IGN: This is a great, happy moment for them, but this is a show where happiness usually doesn’t last too long. Is there anything you can say about what you’ve been told regarding where things might go next season?

Rickards: I haven’t been told. It’s been very disappointing for everyone in your job position because I have not been told anything nor have I asked because it usually changes so quickly. I’ll say that Oliver and Felicity have gone away and I have no idea where they went. Hopefully Jamaica, an all-inclusive resort. I want lime sorbet, a pina colada, and I want to sit on the beach. [laughs] I want to have a goddamn good time!

IGN: That could be a 10-episode arc.

Rickards: You know how they put Katherine Heigl in a coma in Grey’s Anatomy? I want them to put me on a beach.

IGN: On TV people root for couples to get together, but there is always that question of can they stay a happy couple and sustain that as part of the show?

Rickards: Can you sustain the passion and the power that comes from people who already have that momentum in that area… I mean I don’t know. Do you know?

IGN: It’s happened. You could make it happen.

Rickards: What characters?

IGN: I was going to say Parks and Recreation because all the couples…

Rickards: They all get married!

IGN: Right! It was all so sweet. When/if Oliver is back fighting crime again, would you like to see Oliver and Felicity co-existing as a couple and partners in crime?

Rickards: I would like them to do things as a couple, as a team, as well as be part of a team. I want them to deal with couple stuff – honesty, vulnerability, sex. All that stuff.

IGN: Felicity got a big moment where she got to save Oliver wearing the Atom suit. Is that a one-off or would you like to see something else happen for her costume-wise?

Rickards: Costume-wise, maybe, but probably not the Atom suit again. I think we used that bubble, but that was fun. It was hard to wear that suit.

IGN: I bet. But maybe at some point she gets some other alter ego?

Rickards: Maybe, we’ll see. Or just a split-personality. I’ll United States of Tara her.

IGN: A lot of great ideas here.

Rickards: They should make me a writer!

Arrow Season 4 returns this fall.
