‘Arrow’: Will Felicity be our new ‘Black Canary’ ?

If there is one thing that the writers and producers have promised and delivered in regards to Season 5 of Arrow, it is the exciting and twisted storylines. Make no mistake, we have seen plenty of curve-balls in the past, but this season has definitely not left us disappointed.   

One of the big talks of the town in regards to the show (aside from the return of Laurel Lance) is the trauma and darkness that has been inflicted on our favorite IT girl, Felicity Smoak. After  losing her boyfriend, Detective Billy Malone, in a confrontation between Oliver and Prometheus, Felicity seems to find herself in a deep, dark spiral.

Since the mid-season finale, Arrow producers and writers have been stating how Billy’s death will affect Felicity; leading to widespread fan speculation that Felicity take on the mantle of Black Canary 3.0

Quite an interesting speculation if you ask me… I mean… she has played a huge role in the vigilante game since Season One. If she were to take on the role of Black Canary, it would just be a step off of the sidelines (or rather, out of the Arrow Cave).

If this fan speculation correct… Should Felicity become the next Black Canary?

Arrow Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim recently stated in an interview:

“Felicity’s been living in this darker world for the last four-plus years now and one of the things we’re exploring is how much what Oliver and Diggle and Roy and Laurel have been doing as vigilantes affected her and affected her way of thinking about things.”

An easy conclusion to draw from that quote would be that yes, she will take on the vigilante mantle. There have been similar patterns in the past with the show (Laurel taking up Sara’s mantle after her murder). Even ‘super geeks’ Caitlyn and Cisco have gotten up out of their seats and joined the ‘meta’ game (mind you, they didn’t exactly have a choice…but still, it happened).

However, nothing is as it seems on the show and frequently likes to wander down the road of the unknown; to keep us guessing.

What do you think? Would you like to see Felicity appear as our Black Canary 3.0? Tell us in the comments below!!
