All About Arrow: “The Secret Origin of Felicity Smoak”


We didn’t quite get what I expected this episode…

So, we knew Felicity used to be totally goth but while this episode was billed as her “secret origin” I felt like we didn’t actually get enough of that origin. But OMG her mom and OMG Felicity saving herself like woah.
