Speaking with TV Guide, showrunner Beth Schwartz warned Felicity Smoak’s end-of-season exit makes her cry “every time” she sees it.
I can’t give away too much, but every time I watch the last 10 minutes of the finale, I cry every single time. just wanted to honor [Felicity]. She’s been a really important character to the show — besides just having a huge fan base — to me personally. She’s been one of my favorite characters, and I’ve been with her from the beginning. I wanted to make sure that we honored her both in her relationship with Oliver as well as her goals personally and the origin of Smoak Tech — her wanting to do something in addition to being on Team Arrow. That was her own, so that was really important to me.
