Arrow is one of my favorite shows on television right now. I look forward to each episode. I am showing restraint with this installment. This article could have easily been an ode to Stephen Amell’s (Oliver Queen) abs. I do like the storyline and know the comic background, I swear! Instead, I chose the coolest and most adorable female on the show.
Full Name: Felicity Meghan Smoak
Occupation: Arrow’s personal hacker/IT support
Who is She?
Felicity is the incredibly smart and pretty hacker on CW’s Arrow. She started out as a regular IT girl that Oliver went to for some covert help. After he got shot, he turned to her for help. She then became part of Team Arrow. Felicity is the backbone of Arrow’s vigilante team. She is portrayed by the actress Emily Bett Rickards.
- Felicity used a Windows Surface tablet for her earlier IT/hacking activities.
- Felicity is Jewish.
- Felicity dyes her hair blonde.
- Felicity completely changed Oliver’s computer system because she thought it was terrible.
- Felicity originally agreed to help Oliver only until they found Walter. She is still there…
Why So Crushworthy?
Felicity is another great example of a computer-savvy female. I wish I was as brainy as Felicity. She is completely adorable as well. Her endearing social awkwardness is a refreshing contrast to Laurel’s demeanor. I just relate more to Felicity. I did a Google search on Felicity for information purposes and I was surprised at all the Tumblrs and fan pages I found. She is really popular. Felicity is a character that constantly surprises. She is more comfortable behind a desk but she can handle herself out in the field, too. Her stints undercover are great. She really cares about Team Arrow, too.
I think Felicity is the biggest support system on Team Arrow. She does most of the research and planning for the team. She hacks her way into any system in order to help Arrow bring people to justice. She is also the bloodhound of the team since she is able to track and find people using her computer. She helps remind Oliver to be compassionate from time to time. You could also say she is the heart of the group. She keeps things together when they are falling apart. Diggle is usually too busy keeping Oliver out of the frying pan. She is so endearing with her embarrassing conversations with Oliver. I don’t know if I would want her with him. I am afraid he would break her her heart. Felicity is too good for that. I admire Black Canary’s kick butt ethics but Felicity really is the best female character on the show.
