Could it be game over for Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards)? According to EW, Elysia Rotaru has been cast in Arrow Season 4 as someone from Oliver’s past, specifically a former love interest. But could she be coming in to split up the couple?

So far, it’s unclear who Rotaru will be playing exactly but she will be introduced through a series of flashbacks. Arrow executive producer Marc Guggenheim said: “Oliver is gonna have a love interest in the past that will serve as a parallel or potentially a contrast to his love affair with Felicity in the present.”

This won’t be Rotaru’s first appearance on Arrow network The CW. She has also recently starred on Supernatural and iZombie as well as on Smallville and Hellcats.

In similar news, True Blood alum Rutina Wesley is also in talks to join the cast of Arrow Season 4 for a multiple episode arc, The Wrap reports. But like with Rotaru, Wesley’s role is unknown. The actress is currently playing Reba McClane on NBC’s Hannibal.
