Yes, that’s right. Despite Oliver Queen’s dangerous life during his time away from Starling City after, that didn’t slow down his love life at all, as we get to meet another one of his love interests, pre-The Hood, and pre-Felicity. So, now with Elysia Rotaru cast in Arrow, how will her appearance in that role of former flame affect that of Oliver’s relationship with Felicity? Maybe it won’t. According to Entertainment Weekly, she’ll be seen in flashbacks this upcoming season.
“Oliver is gonna have a love interest in the past that will serve as a parallel or potentially a contrast to his love affair with Felicity in the present,” executive producer Marc Guggenheim tells EW.
There is no report of whether Rotaru will reappear in Queen’s present day as some of his flashback characters have a habit of doing. But I wouldn’t be surprised if that were the case, especially in terms of giving the Olicity dynamic trouble.
Arrow returns for its fourth season on Wednesday, October 7 at 8pm on The CW.
