OK, we were pretty confident that, after the shooting in the midseason finale of Arrow, Felicty Smoak would become the Arrow-verse’s version of Batman’s guardian angel, Oracle.
But it looks like were wrong…
In the Batman comics Oracle was Barbera Gordon, who was paralysed from the waist down by The Joker who became Batman’s always online eyes and ears. Felicity was wounded at the end of the last episode and, given her character in the series and the fact that she is almost Oracle already, fans – like ourselves – thought she would be seriously injured and become Oracle. You can read our full reasoning behind it here.
Now, Arrow executive producer Wendy Mericle has apparently put an end to this speculation: “That’s something we definitely talked about [doing] with Felicity in the beginning…. But yeah, it will not be Oracle, sadly, people have to tune in to see what happens.”
Aw, we were sort of getting used to this idea too.
What do you guys think?
