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?
