Felicity’s involvement with Helix will come back to haunt her during Thursday’s episode of Arrow.
As revealed in the exclusive sneak peek below, Helix hacker Alena (Kacey Rohl) enlists Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) in helping her take down the mysterious Cayden James, whom Felicity helped free from A.R.G.U.S. custody last season. According to Alena, Cayden has plans that will hurt the entire world, and instead of turning to the team, Felicity initially attempts to handle this alone.
“Setting him free was never the issue until setting him free meant there was going to be a negative rebound to that,” Rickards tells EW. “Originally setting him free was supposed to be a positive and that’s all that was going to be. Having him come back and stir the pot, like a reminder, something you thought would never happen to you again happens again, and you just thought you were done with it, so Felicity wants to take the reins into her own hands and do it, which is why she denies the team’s help, but obviously you can’t work alone.”
