During the recent Arrow panel at Heroes and Villains FanFest at Nashville, the cast was questioned about what they want their characters to do in the season seven. In response Katrina Law (Nyssa al Ghul), said that her character should kiss Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards).
“I think Nyssa should make out with Felicity,” Law said.
“Me too,” Juliana Harkavy, aka Dinah Drake/Black Canary, said.
“I mean, I think everyone should make out with Felicity,” added Katie Cassidy, aka Laurel Lance/Black Siren.
“Oh my gosh!” Law exclaimed. “What a great storyline.”
For Arrow fans, especially the fans of its several female characters, and those who constantly keep imagining romantic pairings between them, these comments are delightful.
While we don’t know if Nyssa and Felicity will actually have a lip lock onscreen, those associated with Arrow are not averse to seeing the female characters get more screentime together.
“It’s totally possible.” The exiting showrunner Marc Guggenheim had said regarding an all-female team up in 2017.”But truth be told, I wouldn’t want to do it unless we could figure out a way to get Sara in there as well. One of my favorite episodes was 406, where we had Speedy, Black Canary and Canary all fighting side-by-side-by side together, and that was a blast. Seeing three badass women was really, really awesome.”
While an all-female Arrow team might not happen, Law would certainly wish to dig deeper into her love affair with a popular Arrowverse character.
“I think a Legends of Tomorrow appearance should be mandatory!” Law said in 2017. “That’s what I’m thinking because we need Sara and Nyssa. We need the Nyssara backstory of how they met on Liam Yu and how she trained her and basically how she found her on the streets and what the introduction to Ra’s al Ghul was like and eventually how they fell in love, I think people want to see that. I want to see that. Hopefully, one day. Again, I have no idea, but fingers crossed. That’s the wishlist.”
You can watch Arrow’s season finale episode “Life Sentence” at 9/8c on The CW tomorrow.
