Arrow executive producer Andrew Kreisberg has promised some big changes for Felicity Smoak in the fifth season of the show, following her broken relationship with Oliver Queen.
Whilst the two are friends once more, there's no chance of romance in the near future, and so she's going to go through somewhat of a character reinvention if Kreisberg's words are to be believed.
Speaking to EW, he revealed: "We're positioning her to do something in the second half of the year that is really, really key, and that isn't about her relationship with Oliver or even necessarily her father or her mother.
"It's really new territory for her, and we're very excited about it. Some big things are going to happen with Felicity."
He also spoke about Felicity's season 4 finale decision, in which she had to sacrifice Havenrock to spare Star City.
Kreisberg said: "In the first five episodes, we face head-on the decision that Felicity made. We are most definitely not ignoring it."
Arrow returns for its fifth season on The CW in the US at 8pm on Wednesday, October 5.
