Oh my gosh, I haven't been into something so much since I watched Outlander's wedding episode. I love Arrow. Even more now and the tension of this episode was insane! I knew there was chemistry between Stephen Amell and Emily Bett Rickards but this is crazy. They are honestly magic!

Please please please, tell me someone out there knows where I can find the most awesome icons of these two because I need them!

Now onto spoilerish talks:

[Spoiler (click to open)]I knew what was going to happen before it did. I figured like every other show, Oliver would decided his life was just too dangerous for Felicity which is beyond stupid because she's already apart of this dangerous world. And they could have more private dates where they are less likely to get blown up. The worst part is that 90% of the time, Oliver doesn't do the most obvious thing. Of course, he's getting more and more that way with the whole, "I can't kill," and the "I can't have a normal relationship," thing. Oh Ollie, I want to smack you. Do not whinge like Clark Kent of Smallville.

And that first scene (the bed animated image), I nearly died at the way he was eying her and when Diggle told him he told Felicity the truth when he declared his love. *diez* I want them together so bad it isn't even funny. I don't think I wanted Booth/Bones or Castle/Beckett this much.

I loved Felicity getting back at Ray for his tricking her into helping him break into the QC files. Oh the payback Felicity can bring. And I adore her. I so rarely love female characters but there are those rare few who are just beyond awesome.

And then let's talk Ray who I know nothing about as I don't know the lore of Green Arrow or most comics minus Superman but then I like that he appears to be a genuinely nice guy though I hate he's obviously there to flirt with our Felicity and break up my dream team.

I loved seeing Roy in his Red suit working along side Oliver. It was so great and it felt like a true team now. I read Green and Red Arrow have been a team in the comics for a long time so that is a nice twist I knew nothing about.

Flashbacks. Most of the time I hate them. These ones I liked a lot more and it only made sense that Amanda Waller would be the one to manipulate him by threatening Maseo and Katana's family. Oliver's weakness (which is really anyone's who is good)! Oh I hate her and I didn't want to like Maseo until he was so much nicer towards the end when he told Oliver what was going on.

Laurel and Detective, I mean Captian, Lance are doing okay. Laurel isn't crying all the time but Captain Lance's hair is gone which to me looks weird and he's clearly got a heart issue. Freaked me out. I want him to be okay.

But, of course, the Canary in the room is Sara. She died. Holy crap but yay she's gone. I feel bad for the characters who will mourn her but she's got to go. Now, please don't tell me that Malcolm either killed Sara or taught Thea to do it. That just wouldn't be good... but part of me wonders if that Vertigo made Oliver do it. I'm a little terrified but sooo looking forward to the next episode!

Yes! I'm sorry, but I was sooo gready for her to go. I was kinda hoping she'd hit Laurel on her way down so we could be rid of both of them, but maybe Laurel will improve a bit now that she stopped crying and whining for 2 seconds.

I don't think it was Oliver, I think there were several reasons, but I only remember the arrows being black, right now. Being in a vertigo fuge he wouldn't go find black arrows to take her out. He'd go for what he had with him, which would be green ones.

My money was on Malcom, though I don't know if we are aware of a motive? Andy was thinking it was Ra's Al Ghul, was he mentioned aside from the side note with the other assassin lady?

Did you watch Flash? They did they plan for different airing slots? It felt backwards to watch Flash first and then Arrow. Or was that just me?

LOL Oh I wanted her to hit Laurel on the way down too and while I liked that Laurel is stronger and helping Oliver take down the bad guys... I feel like this is going to make her whiney again. Of course, this also might make her take on Sara's persona which is always a possibility. I'd always though Laurel was supposed to be Black Canary but as it turns out in the comics, Laurel's mom was so I'm super confused... clearly they aren't sticking to the comics.

That is true. It likely wasn't Oliver. Malcolm had the black arrows but then are we sure that Slade is dead? That is something I started wondering too.

I did hear a rumor about Ra's Al Ghul and he is quite a possibility.

I thought it was odd the way they did it but maybe they will do better between Flash and Arrow in the future.

Yeah, please not :D I don't want her starting to whine again all the time. Though I do like her better with the lighter hair, I knew there was something off about her. Which might be pointing to her becoming BC now already. Is she blond in the comics too? I don't know.

Honestly, I don't really remember right now what even happened to Slade! :D Bad me *g* Though I think he'd more likly go for a blade than arrows. I don't know :D

I think I'll be sticking to watching them together anyway, no matter what order :)

That would be interesting because I think that might force her to stop whining but then it hasn't stopped other superheros so who knows.

I don't either. Shhh don't tell. Probably.

That is true. I did that last night. But I watched Arrow then The Flash.

I agree with everything you've said here. And with burned_phoenix in wanting Laurel to die too. :)

This show has really surprised me. It seemed a little trite in the beginning and very much a love triangle type of thing, but I'm really loving watching the characters grow and change, even if (like Ollie) they always make the same bad choices about their personal lives.

And yes, let's hope Sara stays dead! (one never knows on this show ...)
Jill aka Jo: Arrow: Oliver and Felicitysireesanwar on October 14th, 2014 10:06 pm (UTC)
Oh yes! I'm so glad Sara is gone and I want Laurel gone too but if that isn't going to happen they have to give her more backbone. No more whining.

I didn't like the idea that they are pushing for a love triangle. The, will they won't they because of all the danger, is enough. I want Oliver to snap out of it and I do think it possible if Ray starts flirting with Felicity that Oliver might just wake up and realize he's being dumb.

It is true! But honestly, if I had to take one Lance sister it would be Sara even if I want both gone. Sara whined but at least she didn't blubber all the time.

Of course they'll do a love triangle. And possibly Felicity will come into contact with Barry again too ... go geek woman! Every guy wants her. :) Seriously, I don't really like love triangles personally, but they're just so popular in scripts. There has to be a reason for the main characters not to get together right away and go through some angst and that's usually the tried and true formula. I guess we'll have to live through it.

True. I disliked them both personally, and Oliver's response and inability to say no to either of them. It's like they remind him of his misspent youth and when he's with them he's a weak willed boy again instead of a man who thinks and makes careful decisions. Of course careful decisions aren't really Oliver's style either ...

It is true and I suppose it is better than just saying we shouldn't be together. I love that Felicity isn't considered the "popular girl" though honestly she's beautiful and smart so really she could be. But she's the one that is down to earth and has less angst than Laurel and Sara.

It is true plus I think Oliver has this need to help these completely screwed up women. It is funny that Felicity is the only one that takes care of him but we'll have to see if that lasts.

arrow is awesome!!! it seems so unreal that I was thinking to stop watching it in the first half of s1 XD
OLICITY is the best!!!

how do you like the flash?
Jill aka Josireesanwar on October 22nd, 2014 10:00 pm (UTC)
Me too. I was getting sick of the flashbacks but I'm so glad I stuck it out. I love this show.

Olicity is the best.

I think The Flash is okay. I'm hoping it gets over the pep talks for Barry soon.
