Speaking of Oliver’s love life, Susan Williams has been acting a little shady lately. Will we find out what she’s after sooner rather than later?
Yeah, Susan definitely has a very specific drive. I think what’s cool about where we’re taking her is, yes, we’re going to find out what she’s up to and how much she knows in the back half of the season, but — starting in [season] 5 [episode] 7 — they have a really genuine connection. I think she is, for all of her journalistic ulterior motives, also a really good person and they have a genuine chemistry. So, it’s going to get complicated for her and for him as well. It’s not going to be as straightforward as a reporter exposing some truth about the mayor. It’s going to be complicated by the fact they genuinely care about each other.
I have this headcanon that Oliver and Marcus don’t adopt their children from birth, and so both were already named when they adopted them. However they later realize that both of their children’s names mean fire.
Oliver thinks it’s beautiful and poetic, because his last name is Wood, which is something that burns, and Marcus’ is Flint, which is something that starts a fire, and so if you combine a flint and wood, you get fire.
Marcus thinks it’s hilarious because their kids have Oliver’s last name, so both their names mean fire wood.
“I went out and got a few records for my turntable,” she tells TVLine. “Kinda nerdy, I know!”
Even a week after she earned her upgrade on the CW hit (airing Wednesdays at 8/7c), Rickards says, “I’m still beside myself,” having signed on as just a day player all those months ago. “It’s a roller coaster I never want to get off of.”
IT’S JUST… A LITTLE CRUSH? | Rickards says that Felicity herself is quite single, only “madly in love with her keyboard” — for now. As for those who see chemistry between the geeky gal and beefcakey Oliver, she concedes there’s possibly always been a crush there. “When she was introduced to him in Episode 3, she was like, ‘Of course I know who you are! You’re the millionaire’s son who’s a total babe.’ It doesn’t ever pass her by that he’s an extremely good-looking man. So if the storyline ever decides to go that way, it wouldn’t be far-fetched at all.”
TVLine Throwback interview with Emily after becoming a series regular.
I liked the Syndicate novel. It was great learning more about what happened before the game. But then…
For anyone who hasn’t read it, this is the beginning of the chapter where the game starts…
NO HE DIDN’T! HE WORE A TATTY LITTLE FLAT CAP!!!
It’s like Oliver Bowden has tried to delete all existence of the cap. And for that, I will never forgive him.
Concept art made to accompany Harlan Ellison’s unmade script for “I, Robot.” Susan Calvin as a child, young woman, and old woman.
I loved the script, but having read it over, like so many other far-out scifi concepts, it simply was too ambitious to make with the limitations of special effects in 1978. See also: Oliver Stone’s original script for Conan the Barbarian (I am not kidding).
