Emily Bett Rickards has said that her hopes for Felicity Smoak's near future don't necessarily include a baby for Felicity and Oliver. Emily Bett Rickards’ Hopes For Felicity Don’t Necessarily Include An “Olicity Baby”

Ah, the “Olicity baby.”

There are members of the Arrow fandom who really want Oliver and Felicity to have a child together, who insist that we’re idiots for believing Stephen Amell that it’s not happening in Season 7, and then there are others, who think a baby would seriously take away from what the show is supposed to be.

TVGuide.com’s Lindsay McDonald asked Emily Bett Rickards what she thinks in a recent interview.

“I don’t know if I would be interested in exploring that storyline right now with Felicity,” Emily said. “I feel like she deserves a little something more than that, and I don’t want that to be taken the wrong way. I’d just be interested in seeing her, I don’t know, like, deal with a villain face-to-face for a consistent number of episodes?”

TVGuide.com did also ask if Smoak Technologies may be a part of Felicity’s future.

“Because it’s been teased in a future world in one of our universes, it’s definitely a possibility,” Emily told them. “But it also is one of those things where we don’t have to do it. I think it would be extremely enjoyable to see what’s next there.”

Like is Helix Dynamics going to spur Smoak Tech? What are they going to do with it? What would be their goal, what would be their journey, what would be their purpose? I think that would be an interesting conversation, and it’s what Curtis (Echo Kellum) and Felicity are sort of trying to do with Helix Dynamics,” she continued.

Arrow returns this Fall in its new time slot of Mondays at 9PM ET/PT.
