From glam to goth!

Arrow's Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) has amped up her game in the wardrobe department this season, donning an array of seriously drool-worthy mini-dresses. But it looks like she'll be changing up her look in a major way in Wednesday's all-new episode, fittingly titled, "The Secret Origin of Felicity Smoak." (Anyone else get chills every time they hear that episode title?!)

We've got your exclusive first look at "Goth Felicity," and no, this isn't a Halloween trick. Plus, we also have the first photo of guest star Nolan Funk as Cooper Seldon, Felicity's ex-boyfriend from college!

Yes, it looks like our girl went through a bit of a goth phase during her time at MIT as these photos are indeed from the flashbacks in the episode, and we have to say, we kind of totally love her daring look?!

These photos are sure to make fans who have been impatiently waiting for a Felicity-centric episode even more excited. In the outing, NYPD Blue's Charlotte Ross will guest as Felicity's mother, Donna, who will throw the fan favorite for a loop when she stops by for an unexpected visit. We don't know much about Donna, but we do know she is/was a cocktail waitress in Vegas and definitely has a strained relationship with her daughter.

One thing that won't be happening in the episode? Many fans' theory that Dr. Anthony Ivo is Felicity's father, as executive producer Andrew Kreisberg shot that down.

Arrow airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. on the CW.
