Arrow: Will Felicity Live?

At the end of Arrow’s mid-season finale, Felicity was shot by Darhk’s thugs, leaving many to wonder if Felicity is in the grave. Of course, she’s not.

Besides the fact that killing Felicity would be show suicide, the preview for the mid-season premiere clearly shows doctors scrambling to save Felicity’s life. It later flashes to Oliver by the grave. The writers obviously want us to link both scenes together — doctors fail to save Felicity and she dies.

But why spend so much time showing the hospital scenes if she’s not going to live? Why wouldn’t the writers cut right to the funeral when the show returns? The only plausible reason is Felicity will live. Arrow fans can rest assured that Olicity will live on.

I’m excited for the second half of the season because we’ll figure out who is in the grave, which has been a huge mystery since the beginning of the season. I’ll be stunned if it’s not Thea, Captain Lance, or Felicity’s mother. They are the most expendable characters. I still believe Thea is the likely candidate, but I guess we’ll see how it all pans out over the coming weeks.

Do you agree? Do you think Felicity will live?

Did Arrow’s midseason finale trailer hint that Felicity is in the grave?

We know from Arrow’s trailer that Felicity is in danger. However, we also know that others who are close to Oliver are in danger as well.

Darhk vows to take everything from Oliver, and while Felicity’s death certainly would be a huge blow for Oliver, it also would be show suicide. Felicity keeps Oliver centered and many viewers tune in for Olicity. For these reasons, I stick by what I’ve been saying — someone other than Felicity is in the grave.

Thea has been, and still is, at the top of my list, but in recent weeks, the show has hinted that Captain Lance or Felicity’s mother could be in the grave. Additionally, in the crossover episode with The Flash, Oliver learned that he has a son, which means it could be his son or his son’s mother in the grave.

The crossover episode hinted at that possibility when the mother set the ground rules for Oliver to see his son. She said she didn’t want their son to be dragged into Oliver’s world. Of course, the world she’s talking about is much different from the one Oliver is in as the Green Arrow. If she ever finds out that Oliver is the Green Arrow, she’ll probably never allow Oliver to see his son.

As the season goes on, it’s possible Darhk will find out about Oliver’s son and kill him. The loss of his son would definitely make Oliver kill again.

As the list of candidates for the grave gets longer, who do you think is in the grave?
