And the whole Olicity thing is really stupid imo, who came up with the idea anyway. And WHY is it ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY that Felicity has to fall for the main character, as if he is the center of the world indeed. It's just kid-like. Ehat's next, Theliver, why not? ;D
I don't hate Felicity, I actually miss her character the way it was in the beginning.
But even if Olicity happens I have the doubt it will be shortlived as the Olivara or Saliver was. But I may be wrong, which seems to me as a lose - lose situation for the show.
And strangely, as a big Katie Cassidy fan, I would love to see her kicking ass and pumped up as the other Black Canary, but yet if it is on the expense of Caity Lotz, it kinda take out of the show, but if otherwise it would be great with 2 Canarys so I really don't know what to expect from the show yet, but if my doubts confirms - I might be joining the bored bench crew.
Arrow for me was and is the great characters that built the show and who grew along with it.
If they all now vanish and/or mellow like Felicity, who was the exact hi-tech mastermind in it's rightful place where she shined great, and are no more and/or replaced with lesser such the disappointment will be imminent for me, tho that's not necessarily bad for the show with such examples as True Blood, which is produced again by the CW. But I was never a fan of True Blood anyways, where as from s/o who thought that Arrow would be another dull series about some rich miserable looser to s/o who was amazed and excited ever after the few episodes I saw after I started watching it. Yes, bcs of Summer tho I was determined to follow it, eventho I knew her character wouldn't last in the show.
I would like to mention the rest of the literally :P short lived guest starts like Ben Browder who I admire greatly just like Summer and who I felt appeared for far too short like her. I woulda like to more of those guys, as well as Kelly Hu and Katrina Law. And what in the hell happened to the story between Moira and Isabel? They just left a major part of the plot sink like Titanik, or should we say like the Queen's Gambit.
Anyways as an Arrow fan too... even if this turns out to be a bad season I guess there's still hope in it, if not the 4th one might be better eventually.
