It had been revealed earlier this week that the fifth episode of The Flash Season 4 is called “Girls Night Out” and that Emily Bett Rickards will be visiting as Felicity Smoak from her show Arrow. Putting things together, a loyal reader of TV Line’s Michael Ausiello speculated that Felicity may be visiting for a party in anticipation of a Barry-and-Iris wedding.
(It’s also been speculated that the wedding may be a part of the crossover this year.)
Ausiello, in turn, went to Executive Producer Todd Helbing to get some intel on Episode 5. Here’s what this week’s Ask Ausiello column says about all that:
Here’s what Flash EP Todd Helbing had to say about Ep 5: “It’s really fun. The girls [including a visiting Felicity Smoak] go and have a night out in Central City alone, without the guys. And they get into some trouble.” And to the second part of your Q about the possibility of the outing being a bachelorette party for the potential future Mrs. West-Allen, Helbing responds with a laugh, “Possibly.”
(On the subject of Michael Ausiello, he has a book coming out. You should check it out.)
The Flash Season 4 premieres Tuesday, October 10 on The CW.
