It’s hard to believe that Arrow is in its fourth season and we still don’t know more about our lovable blonde genius/hero Felicity Smoak. But this season we’ve heard the producers tease that Felicity’s father will be coming into play soon. But could it be closer than we thought?
Ever since the casting of Tom Amandes as DC villain the Calaculator (he’ll first appear in episode 12), who is described as “a criminal mastermind and technical genius” with “advanced skills in computer science,” the impeccably intelligent Arrow fandom came to a theory that actually makes a lot of sense. Could the Calculator be Felicity’s father?
“Definitely tune in,” executive producer Wendy Mericle told EW.com. “We are very excited about this character. He does have a connection to Felicity. We’re just really thrilled. Tom Amandes has been amazing in the role and is bringing a lot of kindness and a lot of malice to this character.”
If that’s not a near guarantee that the Calculator turns out to be Felicity’s father than I don’t know what is. I mean, come on, he just screams SMOAK. Regardless we’re excited to learn about the Calculator’s connection to Felicity and to see Amandes bring the character to life, but not nearly as much as we’re excited to meet Felicity’s father. Whoever he may be.
