I don’t usually talk about Laurel on my blog because I don’t talk about things I don’t give a shit about. But you are the fourth anon message I got about this crap, so lucky you, I’m going to address it.
WHO THE HELL ELSE WAS SUPPOSE TO COMFORT LAUREL?
Diggle? Roy? Felicity? All whom Laurel hardly knows. Quentin? Oh wait, he wasn’t there. Of course Oliver was going to be the one the comfort her. What is wrong with you? I am hardcore anti-Laurel and even I had no issue with the way it played out. Stop with your petty shipper bullshit.
And to the other Anon, who was angry at Oliver because he didn’t try and comfort Felicity at all during the episode.
Did you ever think that maybe that was because Oliver was trying to keep a lid on his emotions. That if he was to let himself comfort her, he would have completely lost the grip on his emotions. Oliver needed to be cold. He needed to be distant. Felicity completely breaks down his emotional walls, she always has. One touch and it all would have been over.
Overall, I was a little underwhelmed. I think I built it up too much in my head. C’est la vie. It happens. But that Olicity scene and the Oliver & Diggle scene? SPECTACULAR.
First things first. Stephen Amell. I gotta bone to pick with you Mr. "It’s Not Like We’ll Never Address That He Said I Love You In Reverse." My assumption was that it would be this episode that it would be addressed. I hate it when I’m wrong.
Look folks…it’s gonna get rough. They gave us our happiness in 3x01. It was a great 25 minutes wasn’t it? Good times. Now they’ve got to strip it away. Say it with me…FUCKING WHEDON.
Why are the writers doing this? They have to break the ship down so it can be rebuilt. Rebuilt into something EPIC.
I theorized the break up would send Oliver & Felicity off into different trajectories. Then the rest of the season is about deciding, if they can or WANT to find their way to back to each other.
This was the beginning of the different trajectories.
