For Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards) fans, this news has been a long time coming.
In a recent interview with TVLine, new showrunner Beth Schwartz teased us with this particular little nugget regarding season 7 of Arrow. What we saw in a flash-forward on Legends of Tomorrow a few seasons back might be coming true.
“It has to do with Smoak Tech.” Schwartz explained. “It’s possible you might see something like that this season.”
The news is sure to delight fans that have been waiting for Arrow’s original tech genius to finally realize her potential as a businesswoman, something that’s been in flux since season 3.
“That was something we wanted to do last year, and then we got sort of seduced by the Helix storyline,” producer Marc Guggenheim said last year. “I would say that people wanting that storyline will be happy, but for reasons that I think will be very obvious, it can’t be called Smoak Technologies.”
Viewers will remember that last year, Felicity and Curtis Holt (Echo Kellum) began a joint venture under the Helix name. But fans have been wondering if Smoak Technologies would pop up, especially after series star Stephen Amell (Oliver Queen) wore a t-shirt with the company’s logo in a photo last month.
I guess we’ll just have to wait and see what happens this season on Arrow.
