Next week's episode, titled "The Secret Origin of Felicity Smoak," will finally delve into the character's past; while we've had a few small hints, her life story prior to meeting Oliver Queen has been largely left up to fan imaginations.
What do we know? Well, we know her ex-boyfriend and mother both show up in Starling City in the present day, and that Nolan Funk will be the one to play Cooper Seldon, her Big Bang Theory-inspired (apparently) former beau. He'll bring with him a massive computer virus that will fuel a cyber attack on the city Felicity doesn't feel she can beat.
Is it just us, though, or is the whole black-and-purple motif a bit of a wink and a nod to her comic book counterpart, the former Mrs. Firestorm's Dad? Check out her first appearance below (this is a look that she sported fairly often, from what we can tell online):0comments
