Anonymous said: Do you think Felicity has a dark past?
I think Felicity has secrets. I think she’s been though hard/dark times (father abandonment, difficult relationship with her mother, hints at a stalker-like figure in her life). So I think there might be surprising twists in the origin story that will surprise us given how nice, upbeat, and generally nice/happy Felicity is in the present. I think, if anything, her life experience prior S1 Arrow will surprise the people around her who have made some assumptions about the type of life she led before.
