This post contains spoilers for all aired episodes of Arrow, including last night’s 2x08, “The Scientist."
Last night's episode of Arrow was the gift that kept on giving for Olicity shippers (that is, fans of the potential pairing Oliver/Felicity); just when you thought things couldn't get better (worse?), they did, right up until the final moment. And it was fantastic.
Not only did the introduction of Barry Allen (future superhero The Flash) further the plot (omg, he's the only one who can save Oliver now!), but it brought out some fascinating emotions in both Oliver and Felicity. While Oliver seemed to find himself a little jealous—his reaction to Barry was not unlike Felicity's to Isabel, with whom Ollie had a fling a few episodes back—Felicity was clearly attracted to the—admittedly quite charming—scientist.
