Fans of "Arrow" Season 5 are curious about the fate of Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards). She has aligned with Helix so she is now using even more unconventional methods than she does with Team Arrow.
Viewers can expect that this will take Felicity to an interesting place and will give her a better understanding of Oliver Queen/Green Arrow (Stephen Amell). This does not necessarily mean, however, that their romance does not match with the lyrics of Taylor Swift's song "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together."
"We're starting to put her in Oliver's footsteps a little bit," "Arrow executive producer Marc Guggenheim told Entertainment Weekly. "She's going to get a chance to experience things a little bit more from Oliver's perspective."
For Guggenheim, the reason Felicity and Oliver broke up was the difficulty of the former to see things from the perspective of the latter. She did not trust him because she could not understand why he made the decisions he made, which is the fundamental reason why they broke up, according to the executive producer.
In "Arrow" Season 5 episode 17 titled "Kapiushon," Adrian Chase (Josh Segarra), the villainous vigilante who calls himself Prometheus, will go to extreme lengths to destroy Oliver. Flashbacks will show Oliver's violent tendencies come to a head in a confrontation with Anatoly Knyazev (David Nykl).
Emilio Ortega Aldrich and Brian Ford Sullivan wrote "Kapiushon," which was directed by Kevin Tancharoen. Joining Amell, Rickards, Segarra and Nykl in the episode are David Ramsey as John Diggle, Willa Holland as Thea Queen, Echo Kellum as Curtis Holt, Paul Blackthorne as Quentine Lance, Lexa Doig as Talia al Ghul, Mike Dopud as Viktor, Conor Gomez as Ivan, Juliana Harkavy as Dinah Drake and David Meunier as Ishmael Gregor.
Airing on March 22 on The CW, "Kapiushon" is the fourth "Arrow" episode of Dolph Lundgren as Konstantin Kovar. Recently, the actor told the same publication that he is reuniting with Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger in "The Expendables 4."
