This season of Arrow is blowing the first one away. The first outing with Oliver Queen as the playboy cum vigilante of Starling City had him not letting anyone in, trying to rekindle a relationship with his ex Laurel and simultaneously set her up with his best friend. He was a man who didn’t know what he wanted.
This season, the show’s writers have found their path. They’ve given every character on the show much more depth and we’re seeing that character development make for much more interesting relationship dynamics. While we could get into the bromance with Ollie and Digg (and probably just include a slideshow featuring photos of the two working out), we’re 'shippers here at Heroes and Heartbreakers.
You see, I’m not the only one noticing Ollie’s depth this season. We’re seeing him grow, change and become someone worthy of the title of hero.
Felicity Smoak is brilliant. She’s the IT genius behind all the tech wonder we see on Arrow and basically Ollie’s backbone. She’s smart and funny and, oh, she wants to be with Oliver something fierce.
