BUT THINK ABOUT HOW HEARTBREAKING THEIR “BREAKUP” SCENE WILL BE NOW THAT THEY’VE KISSED????????
I CAN’T DO THIS
RIGHT??????????????????????? But ‘break-up” is just a terrible term. This will be after they decide to STOP KISSING. And not even “they” but OLIVER. WHEN HE IS THE ONE PULLING HER UP AND INTO HIM IN THE FIRST PLACE. AND THAT DAMN GRAB FELICITY MAKES ON HIS FOREARM. I JUST….
OLIVER IS ALL OVER HER LIKE THAT’S ALL IT TAKES TO BE HER HUSBAND.
HE WANNA BE HERS AND ONLY HERS SO BAD.
I AM NOT OKAY.

FOR CRYING OUT LOUD….TO JESUS SO THAT HE CAN TAKE ME HOME.
Nonnie, I like that you ask me this every week, because THERE IS LITERALLY A DIFFERENT SCENE THAT I LOVE EVERY SINGLE WEEK.
So, my favorite as of twenty minutes ago is just this sliver of the beginning of one of their most poignant moments:
Oliver sat there and watched her, and Felicity is completely oblivious to it. I think that is what grabs me the most. She’s sulking. He’s never seen her sulk. When has she ever sulked? Like looked legitimately BUMMED OUT? This is what Oliver is trying to come up with in his head, and the answer is never. She’s never been this turned down. Her colors are always so bright and Oliver just never wants to be the reason she feels how she does in that moment.
He knew he was too harsh, and that he didn’t relay his emotions correctly. He went right into tough love. Chastisement, and never took into consideration that maybe Felicity was beating herself up enough for the both of them, about a lot of things, but most of all, about Barry. I mean, Felicity stayed behind an extra day for a reason. It wasn’t because Oliver and Diggle are exhausting and she needed some time away. It wasn’t a fucking vacation, so she came back with more weight and worry than she left with, and I think Oliver started to remind himself of that. Business is business, but she was already feeling pretty helpless by Barry’s side, and she didn’t need to feel incompetent or slacking on top of that.
Anyways, back to my original thought, Oliver takes the time to feel her out by watching her. What I also love is that he turns around and doesn’t really direct his apology to her, and she calls him out in it, just like he knew she would, which was why he turned around to say it. He was looking for the wrath to come down and wasn’t ready to take it, but faced the fire anyways. That’s important. That’s how you know how much Felicity Smoak matters to him, and the best part is, he goes right on about saying it minutes later in the same scene.
Another point….BODY LANGUAGE IS KEY. Oliver is sitting up in that chair, leaning her way, because he wants to approach her. If he were lounging, chilling like a villain and watching her, I don’t think I’d feel the same about this moment, because it’s all in how Oliver is using his body to show that he fucked up and he knows he fucked up.
If he wasn’t so damn proud, he would have crawled to her and planted his head in her lap in a heave of hopelessness, but the fact that he knew that he couldn’t rest with himself until he made things right with her, that’s pretty important to me.
