Note: This post contains spoilers of all aired episodes of Arrow, including last night's winter premiere Season 3, Episode 11, “Midnight City.”
This episode was a nice segue from last week. Laurel is trying to mete out justice in her sister’s name and Felicity is still obviously mired in grief. Roy comes to Laurel’s aid when she bites off a bit more than she can chew with a bad guy and proceeds to give her a tongue lashing. Then Dig takes over and lashes her some more. She really got it from both barrels during this episode but I think it was deserved, for the most part. Laurel’s made some bad choices this season. Wanting to do good isn’t one of them. Lying to her father, well. I’ll get to that in a bit.
The most important thing is that the episode began with Oliver dreaming as he recuperated in the mountain cabin. He dreamed an alternate outcome to his discussion with Felicity that we saw towards the end of 3x09, where he said goodbye to her and that he loved her. This time, however, he told her that he was going to stay instead of going off to fight Ra’s. The love declaration was still there and then…he kissed her. Honest to god. Actually, it was more of a 90/10, like we saw in the deleted mansion kiss from 2x23 (for more reference on the 90/10, go rent the movie Hitch). But they were both happy and smiling and I swear to god, dream or not, that’s the first time we saw a happy Olicity kiss and I found I’m super thirsty for more. Get on that, Arrow writers.
