Arrow: Emily Bett Rickards On Felicity Becoming Palmer Tech's New CEO

In 3 days, Arrow will make its eagerly-awaited Season 4 debut! Today, the CW Television Network has released a new featurette that informs viewers of what Felicity Smoak and Oliver Queen have been up to during the interim and what's in store for Felicity in the upcoming season.

"Oliver and Felicity end up, sort of, saying goodbye to their "nighttime" profession," Emily Bett Rickards says in the new Arrow featurette. "Come back and it's five months later and they've spent those five months gone, enjoying their life, traveling, tanning, watching whales -- I don't know. Felicity was named CEO of Palmer Tech. I think she really likes it, actually. She's a lot better at than she thought she would be, which is kind-of-cool. There's other things that come with being the boss, like firing people."

Check it out in the video below.

"Green Arrow" — Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Felicity's (Emily Bett Rickards) blissful getaway is cut short when Thea (Willa Holland) and Laurel (Katie Cassidy) pay them a visit and tell Oliver they need his help back in Star City. The city has been attacked by "Ghosts," assassins led by a dangerous man named Damien Darhk (guest star Neal McDonough). However, when Oliver returns, Diggle (David Ramsey) makes it very clear that he doesn't want Oliver on the team. Thor Freudenthal directed the episode with story by Greg Berlanti & Beth Schwartz and teleplay by Marc Guggenheim & Wendy Mericle (#401).


Arrow Season 4 premiere airs Oct. 7 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
