“We’re going to be exploring the ramifications of that kiss in the [Dec. 10] midseason finale,” he teased, promising that comic book fans who know Ray Palmer’s secret identity won’t be disappointed. “We finally revealed the Atom armor, and that’s going to develop further. Who knows, maybe Felicity might find herself drawn in to what Ray has up his sleeve.”ARROW's winter finale episode "The Climb" airs December 10th at 8/7c on The CW.
While the kiss was clearly not unwanted, Rickards pointed out that Ray “sorta kinda walked away, so they need to reach an understanding with their work relationship, with where they stand now. Ray is an adult, so he’s gonna step up to the plate — he’s a nice dude, and he has respect for Felicity.”
Oliver obviously wasn’t thrilled to see Felicity locking lips with the man who took over his company, but Amell admitted that Oliver doesn’t see Ray as a rival: “He came in, he gave a better pitch to the board of Queen Consolidated, now Palmer Technologies, and the fact that he kissed Felicity… it bothers Oliver, but that’s Oliver’s issue, that’s not an issue with Ray. I think that eventually they’ll be at odds later in the season, but that’s a ways off.”
