Felicity Smoak Joins Team ARROW in "The Odyssey"

At last, Oliver Queen can stop making lame excuses just to get a little vigilante IT support.

SuperheroHype reports that Emily Bett Rickards' geek girl character Felicity Smoak will finally be brought into Team Green Arrow Hood in the February 13th episode "The Odyssey."  The Queen Consolidated computer/research expert first appeared last October in "Lone Gunman" and has helped Ollie on a number of cases, ranging from retrieving information off Deadshot's computer to tracking down Malcolm Merlyn's arrow to cracking Ted Gaynor's computer drive.

Oliver's recent couple of explanations to obtain Felicity's help have become increasingly poor, hinting toward this inevitable decision to officially bring her into the fold.  The CW network's official description for the episode:

After Oliver is shot, he turns to a surprising person for help – Felicity. Diggle (David Ramsey) is stunned when he sees Felicity walk through the front door of the lair dragging a dying Oliver behind her, and the two team up to save Oliver’s life. As Oliver (Stephen Amell) hovers between life and death, he flashes back to a seminal event on the island – a daring escape attempt with his new friend Slade Wilson (guest star Manu Bennett).

"The Odyssey" is written by Andrew Kreisberg, Marc Guggenheim and Greg Berlanti and is also rumored to feature the first appearance of the DC Comics character Shado.
