When I saw the brief footage of Isabel and Oliver, my first thought was, "Ohhhh, boy. Something might happen between them. :/" Perhaps she is trying to get closer to him in order to gain control of the company, hence the episode's title. Just another thing to add to this harem.
Trick question! She is really having an affair with Walter!
THINK about it!!!
She knew him already and we have seen how she respects and possibly admires him or at least his reputation as a businessmen, something she clearly values in casting herself as businesslike and projecting this as an important quality whilst ridiculing Oliver's contrasting reputation and lack of such demeanor in the boardroom.
What this all says to me is that her opinion of Oliver (not knowing the real man but only the public face, attitude, personality he is able to show those unaware of his identity as the hood) makes him the exact opposite of her 'type'.
Walter on the other hand is a perfect match possessing all the qualities, values and charisma Isabel Rochev would long for and pick petals from a flower while dreaming that he loves her! Her favourite Teddy Bear she snuggles up to at night she has also named it Walter after him and has been scheming for weeks and months as the architect of season 1&2 events up to now, all so that she can only get closer to the Queens but especially Walter so that she can finally have the man of her dreams but also really irritate Oliver Queen something awful!
Forget Olicity and Lauriver! I only ship the Walchev 4 lyf !!!
I like Olicity as much as the next person but I'm gonna be really disappointed if shippers start hating Isabel now (at least it's better than not caring about her). This episode proves Oliver has genuine feelings for Felicity and vice versa. You can also find me on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr or Youtube
