The CW has released a synopsis and promo for Arrow season 4 episode 19, which is set to air next Wednesday, 27 April at 9pm EST on The CW. The chapter will find the team dealing with Laurel Lance's (Katie Cassidy) death.
Here is the synopsis for episode 19 titled, Canary Cry:
With Laurel's shocking demise in episode 18, fans of the DC Comics show want Felicity Smoak to rejoin the Arrow team. Felicity quit the Arrow team after she broke off her engagement with Oliver Queen, but this new tragedy may just draw Felicity back into the fold.
Executive producer Marc Guggenheim spoke to TVLine about Felicity's possible return to the Arrow team. "There are two issues" at play for Felicity. "She's broken up with Oliver and she's also broken up with the team essentially. And in Episode 19 ['Canary Cry,' airing Wednesday, April 27], we'll see the undoing of one of those decisions."
Showrunner Wendy Mericle warned fans that even though Felicity may come back into the team, it doesn't necessarily mean good news for Olicity fans. Mericle said, "She could come back to the team and that does not mean that she's back together with Oliver."
Mericle explained Felicity's decision, and said, "We started off this season with Felicity really wanting to come back and do this because she herself enjoys this kind of vigilante lifestyle, but that is separate from Oliver. In [the Season 4 premiere], he didn't want to; it was more about her making herself happy than anything else. So she'll be grappling in some ways with that."
The coming episodes "will echo [the premiere] in terms of where a lot of the characters end up, specifically Oliver and Felicity," she added.
