As the crossover between “The Flash” and “Arrow” came to an end, there’s some serious trouble brewing in Olicity land.
Calm down fans, nobody wants it to be true but it looks like things are coming to a head in regards to Oliver (Stephen Amell) lying to his lady love and it’s going to happen soon. Now that he knows he has a song and has agreed to withhold that information from Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards), what happens next?
“It’s definitely going to come to a head in the middle of the season,” executive producer Wendy Mericle tells Zap2it and a handful of press outlets at a screening of the crossover.
For those keeping track, the mid-season finale airs next week, meaning the middle of the season isn’t too far off.
“Obviously, for the arc of Oliver and Felicity’s relationship this season, the fact that he’s keeping this from her and true to what we’ve done on the show, if there’s a secret somewhere it’s going to come out and it’s going to have some serious consequences,” she explains.
Hearing words like “serious consequences” when it comes to Oliver and Felicity is a scary thought, but at the end of the day these two characters are adults. On the show they largely hold each other accountable for their actions, so letting a lie this huge just slide wouldn’t make for very compelling TV.
Mericle teases, “We’re really excited about how that’s going to change things. it’s really going to raise the stakes and throw some wrenches in the works. True to form, we’re going to mine that. There will be fallout for both of them.”
“Arrow” airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
