Felicity Smoak and Oliver Queen are meant to be together on Arrow.
They know it, you know it, we all know it — so what’s the hold up? Well, it is television.
The fact that both of them get into the shit is one of the ways that they gravitate back towards one another,” he shared. “They have a common malady, so to speak.
She, above anyone else, is the person that he’s going to go to, if he has something to confide or work through.”
He explains of his two best friends: “Diggle is very much the soothsayer and the person who can give him a good piece of advice. But in terms of a heart to heart and a dynamic conversation, Felicity is the one for him.”
“The fact that she’s going through something like that, maybe that’s going to cause him to open up.”
And it looks like the showrunners agree…
“We’re starting to put her in Oliver’s footsteps a little bit,” EP Marc Guggenheim shared with EW. “She’s going to get a chance to experience things a little bit more from Oliver’s perspective.”
He added, “I think the reason they broke up was her difficulty to see things from Oliver’s perspective. They broke up fundamentally because she didn’t trust Oliver, and the reason she didn’t trust Oliver is she couldn’t understand why he made the decisions he made.”
