    Honestly, this surprises me very much. It’s actually depressing for me. I have no idea why she is leaving, but she is such an integral part of the show, I thought it was bad enough the show was ending, but at least I thought she would be in it! At this point, I just want them to end the show on a high point at the end of season 7, like they did with Castle. Because otherwise, they will probably just kill her off, possibly kill of Stephen’s character and/or put him with Laurel or something. If they do that, I feel as if it makes Oliver and Felicity a defunct couple – null and void almost. So, I feel they should just end the show at season 7, on a high note and be done with it already.

      AGREED!

      Trying to figure out how to contact Arrow writers because the talk out there is Oliver is killed off next season too.

      Arrow has plummeted downhill~

    First they cancel the show, then they imply that Oliver might die in future, now this!! whats wrong with this show really?? I’m surprised by her decision really.. I mean after this season, there are just 10 more episodes, she could have just waited and delivered a perfect series finale… I do look forward to how they are gonna explain her disappearance on the show though since she is still very much alive in the future…
