It’s just that, people. A rumor based on something a fan in the audience suggested at Fan Expo. Q (to Stephen): What would you like Oliver to do that he hasn’t done yet? Fan in audience yells: FELICITY And there you have a funny audience suggestion that the internet has now run with and is freaking out about. Seriously people. I would trust Stephen, EBR and the writers more than that at this point. They all know it’s too early and too much is at stake to go there now. Down the line? Obviously going to happen. :-) Season 3 premiere? Heck no but there’s for dang sure an incredible kiss and some open & honest declarations. Think and look a bit more before jumping to conclusions and assuming things.
And after the rumors of Olicity having sex in the premiere…
I just can’t with this. I can’t. Even if it’s when Oliver is high or knocked out on Vertigo or whatever and we’re seeing what he wishes he could have - what he dreams of having…WITH FELICITY… It’s telling if where his heart lies and we shouldn’t feel “faked out” if that’s the case. The writers/producers said when Oliver sees himself as happy it is when he’s with Felicity AND we know the arc of the season is about him realizing he CAN be happy and still be Oliver and the Arrow.
THIS IS BRILLIANT!
This man must be stopped. He needs to be held accountable for the hearts he makes explode and the criminal act of looking so good it must be breaking a law somewhere.

Holy mother… Arrow writers & producers- MAKE IT HAPPEN!!!😳🙌👍
But GUYS!! OMFG JUST IMAGINE LIAM FREAKING NEESON AS RA’S AL GHUL OMG MAKE IT HAPPEN!! He was amazing in Batman; this would be so epic!!
This is true love.
I really don’t know what to think of all of this. First - YAY. But, in the premiere we know vertigo becomes an issue and if Oliver is going to see a side of himself he doesn’t like… I wonder if he’s infected, we see his deepest wants and desires (things he thinks he thought he maybe could have but after the experience in the premiere thinks he can never have) and this is part of that “dream world” he wants. He wants his Felicity.
It’d be sad to see it’s not “real” (YET!!!!) but at the same time still gives grand hope for the future much like the season 2 finale did. Sure we had a fake out (this is likely another one to keep the suspense and tension there) but there was a lot that both of them know is right there just not being said. In this case we see his dreams and desires and we already know there’s a huge arc for Oliver and his identity (who he is and can be) this season. Part of the journey and if seeing what he wants in the premiere while under the influence of a drug leads us down a path (however twisted, winding, heartbreaking it may be) to him realizing he can have happiness and it can be with Felicity - BRING IT. I’m all for using one moment inside a character’s head and heart as a catalyst and reminder for the journey to come.

UMMMMM IS HE WHISPERING SOMETHING IN THAT BOTTOM GIF??????????
IS HE WHISPERING HER NAME?!?!
#i like that they’re both leaning in #also hope is totally right and they’re in the hospital #look at her body pressing into his #and her hand on his arm #and his hands on her face #and his eyes are shut and hers are shut #and she’s wearing her glasses #for some reason that’s really important to me
AND YOUR TAGS ARE DOING IT AGAIN, hon!!!
(Also, yes, whispering her name…PLEASE! Also, the glasses…YES!)
HAH! So true. I guess we will see…WHY IS IT NOT OCTOBER YET?! (And either way, if this is a hallucination, the intimacy of his hallucinations is very telling.) Also, if this is a hallucination, the fact that the first episode is a microcosm of the season - this would be his deepest desires of his heart. And the season shows him getting to the place where he can be both the hero and have his happy story. Where they can both chose this as their happy story because that is what they are to each other.
If he IS whispering something I can TOTALLY imagine Felicity babbling right before this and all he says is her name to get her to stop. :)
OH YOU MEAN THIS ONE???
Bless this post. It entertains me to no end. I love it.
Thinking back to an earlier post I made about who would step back first… Oliver or Felicity?
I said Felicity. I still think that’s possible but I may have skimmed over hearing/reading this OR it’s new information - that Iliver and Felucity have a big scene/talk in episode 303. Remember this is the episode just before her trip to Central City on the Flash.
That knowledge along with knowing there is heavy discussion in the premiere brings up another possibility to draw out the tension/suspense.
Oliver may share some heavy burdens and secrets with her in the premiere. Felicity listens and them we know she’s hurt and Oliver lashes out against the perpetrator. We could be left with things hanging there at the end of 301.
I can see Oliver making sure she’s ok in 302 but avoiding any type of discussion about who they are to each other, if they can be together or not, etc which just winds up confusing Felicity.
In 303 she may finally call him out on it and that’s the big talk. I could actually see him pushing her toward Barry in some ways but I can also see her making a point that Barry isn’t afraid to try being with someone regardless of his “nightly activities”. Kind of a punch in the gut to Oliver but a realization. That could be replicated in what happens with Ray…
By the end of 304 and Felicity’s trip to Central City I could envision Barry talking with her about their friendship/relationship, Barry’s with Iris and Felicity’s with Oliver. Barry is so good natured and attune to people that I can imagine him encouraging her to hold out hope for Oliver (that he’ll come around and get it through his thick skull someday). Be his friend in the meantime. He’d of course need to take his own advice when it comes to Iris.
She returns…She and Oliver carry on as friends but after a bit Ray swoops closer and with how Oliver may act or say things sometimes she tries to move on. Oliver may even tell her no matter what or who he just wants her to be happy. It kills him in the meantime as he grows, becomes more comfortable with who he is, what he needs to work through to be a whole person and then finally realize he CAN be with her.
Either way - the tension, the angst…it’s gon huuurrrt but be beautiful and so worth it in the end.
A grand gesture can mean so much. Take risks. Appreciate others. Show people how much they mean to you and have touched your life. Don’t let people live their life wondering about the impact they’ve had.
