Emily Bett Rickards‘ Felicity is one of the best parts of “Arrow” — a show that has a whole lot of best parts. DC Comics, the comic-book company that originated the Green Arrow, recognizes this. That’s a great explanation for why Rickards is the guest of the upcoming “DC All Access” episode.
Watch an exclusive preview of Rickards’ appearance on Tuesday’s (Dec. 17) installment of the web series.
Alas, the video is lamentably short, but that only increases the anticipation for the full interview. Rickards talks briefly about the meeting of Felicity and Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) during the two most recent episodes of “Arrow.” Maybe, in the full interview, she will hint about whether or not Felicity might visit Barry in any future “Flash” spinoff?
Rickards also addresses the question of Felicity joining the Arrow team in a more aggressive capacity. Hindering that is the fact that Felicity is a bit of an awkward person. She might not be quite up to the antics engaged in by Oliver and Diggle when they’re out on missions. Besides, who would deal with the computers?
“Arrow” is currently on hiatus until Jan. 15, but the “DC All Access” interview will be available online (at dccomics.com) at 10 am (PT) Tuesday. Watch a preview for the full episode below.
