Mama Smoak returns for an awkward family dinner |
Is there trouble in paradise? Mama Smoak (Charlotte Ross) returns to “Arrow” for Wednesday’s (Nov. 11) episode, “Lost Souls.” But all is not well in the Olicity house.
In Zap2it’s exclusive sneak peek clip, Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) and Oliver (Stephen Amell) have dinner with Felicity’s mother — serving the raw chicken with a side of tension and dash of thinly-veiled anger.
While she’s clearly not in on whatever Oliver and Felicity are upset, even Mama Smoke — or Donna, if you want to get all formal about it — realizes it’s her cue to exit. Of course, before leaving she gives Felicity some very sage advice on the merits of makeup sex.
One thing their argument surely isn’t about is Oliver’s relationship with Donna. While he and Felicity may not have been together the last time she visited Star City, the couple is enjoying a bit of domestic bliss at the moment which includes Mama Smoak.
“I’d always imagined that Oliver and [Donna[ had been speaking in between the time [Oliver and Felicity] left together at the end of Season 3 and returning to sort of the suburbs,” Amell told Zap2it and a handful of other outlets on the “Arrow” set. “I always imagined that Oliver, in his nice, easy-going state, would have a dialogue with Donna Smoak, which is proven correct and leads to some funny moments. The dynamic between the two of them is excellent.”
Seeing more of those funny moments — in addition to the one above — is going to be quite a treat.
“Arrow” airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
