A big part of Felicity’s backstory will be revealed in this week’s episode of Arrow. Titled “The Secret Origin of Felicity Smoak”, the episode focuses on a cyber attack that brings Starling City to its knees and wreaks havoc around town. Oliver and Felicity are doing their best to contain the destruction, but it appears that Felicity herself has a connection to the cyber attack. We’ll also meet Felicity’s mother, Donna (guest star Charlotte Ross), who stops by for a surprise visit and complicates the situation further.
Meanwhile, Thea buys an apartment in Starling City with Malcom’s “estate” money which really aggravates Oliver. And Ted Grant questions Laurel’s motives for training.
