At the end of the “Arrow” midseason finale, Felicity Smoak was clearly in a devastating place. Her life hangs in the balance leading into the January 20 premiere entitled “Blood Debts,” and we have to wait until it airs to see what the effects of the shooting are on her. We presume that she’ll survive the gunfire, but that does not mean that this will go without consequence. (We hope that nothing happens to her that is too serious, but hopefully it’s more of a payoff than Oliver drinking some tea and getting better after falling off of a mountain.)
The CW released the synopsis for this episode below, which is relatively short by network standards. However, it does make it clear that Oliver will be striking back at Damien Darhk in a big way after everything that happened with the attack:
“Oliver (Stephen Amell) must deal with the devastating consequences of Darhk’s (guest star Neal McDonough) last attack. Seeking revenge, Oliver goes on a brutal manhunt looking for Dahrk.”
Hopefully we’ll learn more about Felicity’s fate through this episode, and given that we have not even made it to the halfway point of this season just yet, the biggest surprises are probably still to come. We just wish we had a few more things to discuss here beyond what is probably going to be a truly-epic confrontation taking place between Oliver and our villain of the season.
We imagine that there will be some other sneak peeks over the weeks ahead, so stay tuned!
