It could be no other way. Emily Bett Rickards is reprising her role as Felicity Smoak in Arrow. She will appear in the series finale.
No, really, nothing else made sense. This show has been as much about Felicity as it’s been about Oliver, and season 8 is literally about THEIR family. How could it end without Felicity?
Thankfully, we won’t have to find out.
Stephen Amell himself shared the news on his twitter, because of course he did:
There’ll be a lot of news coming out about our final episode over the next few months. I prefer when you hear it from us. Welcome back Emily. pic.twitter.com/YlVpgoPWLi

Now, we can get that Olicity family reunion we deserve, with Mia and William getting to hug BOTH their parents. Now we can get the happy ending they’ve been promising we weren’t going to get since the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover was announced.
So, because this is a REALLY exciting time for us Arrow/Olicity/Felicity fans, I leave you with the 5 stages of learning that Emily Bett Rickards was returning to Arrow, in Felicity gifs, of course, because what other option was there?
Prayer (Let this be REAL)
Don’t take this away from me
