‘Felicity’ Reunion: Scott Foley and Co-Stars Admit They’d Entertain The Idea of a Reboot
The cast of “Felicity” is coming around on a reboot. Star Scott Foley said that he had been resistant to revisiting the show until the cast reunited on stage on Sunday at the Atx Television Festival in Austin.

“I feel the show was so specific to the characters in that time of their lives,” Foley said, recounting what he had previously told a reporter when asked the question of a “Felicity” reboot. “To do it again would be an injustice to the show we all made and all love.”

But then came the “Felicity” reunion on stage at Atx, featuring stars Keri Russell, Scott Speedman, Foley, Greg Grunberg, Tangi Miller, Amanda Foreman, Ian Gomez, Rob Benedict, and Amy Jo Johnson.

They can't do it with us now. It wouldn't work. We're all too old. Felicity was about that magical time of your life when you’re transitioning into adulthood and…

Arrow Season 6 Episode 22 Review: The Ties That Bind

The writers really pulled out all of the stops for Arrow Season 6 Episode 22, "The Ties That Bind." We got action. We got intrigue. We got countless explosions. And we got big betrayals.

Can you all believe it was Anatoly that ended up betraying Diaz? It's interesting to see how the tables have turned for The Dragon. Initially, it was Oliver who got betrayed by everyone on his team, one by one.

Although I'm not going to pretend like Dinah, Curtis, and Rene leaving the team was a big heartbreak, watching Oliver become isolated from everyone one by one was sad to watch by principle. 

Oliver used to believe that he had to work alone for various reasons, such as safety, trust, etc. So, to watch all of his initial fears come to fruition with team Arrow seemed a bit deja vu-ey, especially after one of his biggest fears -- Laurel's
