Taking Out the Trash: Arrow 5x14 Olicity, Heart-to-Heart

Show/Episode: Arrow,Season 5, Episode 14, “The Sin Eater”
Ship(s): Olicity

Arrow 5x14 Captain's Log

Arrow was back in fine form this week so I believe last week’s lackluster episode was a fluke. We’re back into the main thrust of the season, trying to find out who Prometheus. Oliver travels to Opal City to visit Amanda Westfield, Justin Claybourne’s mistress and Prometheus’ mother. He tries to plead to her sense of morality in order to get a name for Prometheus but the woman actually has none. She’s upset that the Arrow killed Claybourne, but not that her son has killed innocent people. So, basically, she’s not a very nice lady.

Meanwhile, Liza Warner, Carrie Cutter and China White take over a prison transfer buss and kill the guards and head to Star City to cause some mayhem. Back at the bunker, Oliver hands a bit of tech to Felicity. He’d had it with him in Amanda’s house, to “sniff” out any information on any devices there. It worked, but it’ll take her a while to go through it all. Meanwhile, their business is with this girl gang. And Dinah is having her SCPD swearing in ceremony.

No More Vicious Cycles: Arrow 5x13 Olicity Heart-to-Heart

Arrow 5x13 "Spectre of the Gun"

Show/Episode: Arrow Season 5, Episode 13, “Spectre of the Gun”
Ship(s): Olicity (Oliver/Felicity)

Arrow 5x13 Captain's Log

Arrow takes a departure this week, talking about the very serious and real-world relevant topic of gun control. As such Oliver and Felicity’s relationship (or lack thereof) takes a bit of a backseat. Actually, most things Arrow related took a backseat.

On the upside, we had Thea back in town and she gave Oliver a (rightfully) hard time about his relationship with Susan. He tried to defend himself on that count, asking that Thea respect that he’s doing something serious with the reporter, but Thea seemed fairly firm on the whole thing make making her feel nauseous. We all feel you, Thea.

We did learn that Felicity is actively searching for the mother of Claybourne’s illegitimate child, the one they believe to be Prometheus. She’s gone off the grid so locating her is difficult, but Felicity is zeroing in on her, with the help of the Pandora drive.

“Welcome Back Hugs, Kisses, and Warm Feelings”: Arrow 5x12, Olicity Heart-to-Heart

Arrow, 5x12 "Bratva"

Show/Episode: Arrow, Season 5, Episode 12, “Bratva”
Ship(s): Oliver/Felicity (Olicity)

Arrow 5x12 Captain's Log

Oliver is in the mayor’s office doing mayoring and Susan stops by and they flirt and a reference is made to the fact they haven’t had sex yet. I’m both glad they haven’t and grossed out that they talk about it and am SO GLAD that Lance chose that moment to show back up from rehab. Excellent timing, good sir and I missed Quentin so much. Oliver gives a quick press conference about Diggle being cleared of charges and then Susan gets a news alert that General Walker busted out of custody and is “in the wind”.

They learn that Walker is in Russia, trying to sell his nuke to terrorists there and Felicity insists on going because she feels it’s her duty to prevent another Havenrock. Oliver relents and Dig points out that the whole team should go because Walker has significant backup. They leave Rene behind to help Quentin prepare for an interview with Susan.

Meet the New Black Canary: Arrow 5x11 Olicity Heart-to-Heart

Arrow 5x10 Second Chances

Show/Episode: Arrow, Season 5, Episode 11, “Second Chances”
Ship(s): Oliver/Felicity (Olicity)

Arrow 5x11 Captain's Log

Oliver and Felicity are on separate paths for most of this episode. But that’s not to say that those paths don’t have value. After all, Emily Bett Rickards said recently that Oliver and Felicity need to grow apart before they can grow together. They’re both growing right now and this will make them stronger when they do finally come together again.

Oliver’s quest is about fulfilling Laurel’s final wishes; that he find a new Black Canary. But no one is good enough for him. He has very high standards that make me question if he is looking at Laurel through rose-tinted glasses. She wasn’t that strong a fighter and not as vital to the team as we’ve been lead to believe so far this season. But… absence makes the heart grow fonder. And more picky, in Oliver’s case. But Curtis has a line on a girl who can fight as good as any of them and who has a meta-human sonic cry. Felicity urges Oliver to go, and take a few of the boys, on a field trip to Hub City to hunt her down and recruit her.

Back from the Dead: Arrow 5x10 Olicity Heart-to-Heart

Arrow, 5x10 "Who Are You?"

Show/Episode: Arrow, Season 5, Episode 10, “Who Are You?”
Ship(s): Oliver/Felicity (Olicity)

Recap:

Arrow 5x10 Captain's Log

The episode picks up exactly where we left off in December… with Oliver discovering Laurel in the bunker. She tells him a story about how Sara saved her on the Waverider and used the medical technology to heal her. It makes enough sense that Oliver buys it easily, mostly because he wants it to be true, he wants to believe the best. He hugs her, telling her its a miracle. Felicity arrives then and also engulfs Laurel in a hug, repeating that it’s a miracle while Oliver looks on fondly. The three of them talk and Felicity has a few more questions, her suspicions showing though she tries to hide it.

Felicity suggests they throw a “back from the dead” party and that’s when Felicity remembers her reason for coming to the bunker in the first place: to tell Oliver that Dig was arrested. Oliver goes to visit Dig and tells him about Laurel, and that Felicity and Lyla are working on finding Prometheus’ mother. Dig tells Oliver that he’s going to fight the charges this time, no breaking out. He needs a lawyer and Oliver just happens to know one: Adrian Chase.

And Prometheus Is...: Arrow 5x09 Olicity Heart-to-Heart


Show/Episode: Arrow, Season 5, Episode 9, “What We Leave Behind”
Ship(s): Oliver/Felicity (Olicity)

Recap:

Arrow 5x09 Captain's Log

This was not an easy episode, but it also wasn’t a terrible episode. Okay, I know my rating makes it seem like it was. But I marked down for appearances by dead ex-Lance sisters and when Oliver kisses someone who isn’t Felicity. And yes, I mark down more for Oliver kissing someone else than I do for Felicity kissing someone else, but I do mark down for that, too. And she kissed someone else this episode too. So when you add all those things up… that’s some fairly major deductions all in one episode. Yikes!

Prometheus has a major beef with Oliver and he makes sure that former-Team-Arrow-member Evelyn understands that he doesn’t want to kill Oliver, he wants to make him wish he was dead. He plans to target all of the team, thanks to intel gathered from Evelyn herself. I get that half-pint is upset with Oliver for being a bit of a hypocrite but she seems particularly bloodthirsty and willing to put people she considered friends besides him in harm’s direct way. That girl needs a chill pill, stat.

Family Reunion: Arrow 5x08 Olicity Heart-to-Heart

Show/Episode: Arrow Season 5, Episode 8, “Invasion!”
Ship(s): Oliver/Felicity (Olicity)

Captain's Log

It’s crossover time! To catch you up on what’s going on: on The Flash, aliens known as the “Dominators” landed in Central City as well as around the world. They need to gather a team to deal with these aliens so Barry and Cisco went to Kara Danvers/Supergirl’s Earth to recruit her, to Star City to get Team Arrow and Felicity called in the crew from Legends of Tomorrow. Introductions were made, meets were cute. You get the idea. Long story short, the Dominators put mind control on all the heroes except for Barry and Oliver, they had to fight their friends before Barry devised a way to break the mind control. But as soon as that happened, Oliver, Thea, Diggle, Ray Palmer and Sara Lance were all beamed aboard a Dominator space ship.

The 100th episode of Arrow begins with Oliver running, like we’ve seen so many times before. But this time, he’s jogging, just like in the open for 4x01 when he was living in Ivy Town with Felicity. And he’s running towards the Queen Mansion (which burned down in the summer between season 2 and 3). Inside, he takes a shower and makes flirty talk with… Laurel Lance. We learn that Oliver has no scars on his body and he’s engaged to marry Laurel. Then we learn that none of this is real: he is in a pod aboard the Dominator ship, alongside Ray, Thea, Dig and Sara. 

[So... rescue mission?]

“I’ve Lost People”: Arrow 5x07 Olicity Heart-to-Heart


Show/Episode: Arrow, Season 5, Episode 7, “Vigilante”
Ship(s): Oliver/Felicity (Olicity)

Arrow 5x07 Captain's Log

I gave this episode 2.5 hearts based mostly on the merit of the surprise ending, Felicity’s beautiful dress, the Quentin and Thea scenes and Felicity going out into the field with the recruits.  The Vigilante storyline was a bit on the weak side. I don’t understand why they seem to expect us not to know that the Vigilante is the DA, Adrian Chase. I’ve done a little reading on Adrian Chase’s comic history and if they follow his story there, I can see why they’re trying to keep a lid on it. But tonight, it felt a little pointless.

The team is alarmed to discover the Vigilante is out on the streets, dropping bodies. He’s basically acting like Oliver in season 1. Oliver doesn’t like the idea of this guy out there, not under his umbrella. Evelyn doesn’t like the hypocrisy that Oliver is showing, yet again. But Oliver is trying to do better, be a better hero. He doesn’t want to just be a vigilante anymore. He wants to be better than that, do more for his city. But he worries that he’s not as effective as this Vigilante. Dig and Felicity try to reassure him that he’s done a lot of good for the city but it went largely ignored. Which is actually pretty typical for Oliver. The team tries to lure the Vigilante out by posing as bank robbers (including Felicity! My girl is in the field!). Which works, but Oliver is unable to unmask the Vigilante before he uses a smoke grenade and disappears. Which means we have to leave the reveal until later. Ugh. I’m already bored with it.

New Relationships?: Arrow 5x06 Olicity Heart-to-Heart

Show/Episode: Arrow, Season 5, Episode 6, “So It Begins”
Ship(s): Oliver/Felicity (Olicity)

Arrow 5x06 Captain's Log

We begin with a lovely OTA scene, Oliver and Dig out in the field, tracking Prometheus, with Felicity calling the shots back in the bunker. Oliver doesn’t want to bring in the newbies because he doesn’t want them to get hurt. What they get is a heavy-breathing style prank call and a message saying “so it begins”. Back at the bunker, they’re trying to figure out what Prometheus’ motive for hunting Oliver is. Felicity thinks they should bring the team in on this, but Dig and Oliver disagree. Oliver wants to know exactly what is the deal with Prometheus before bringing in the recruits.

Quentin is kind of slacking on his job as Deputy Mayor and Thea is concerned. Oliver, meanwhile, is having an interview with Susan Williams and the flirting is ramping up (so is my gag reflex). Quentin and Thea vehemently disapprove of him flirting with her and I immediately am yelling “LISTEN TO THEM, OLIVER.” They’re planning a music and arts festival to build the image of the city. Quentin says he might have an in at the Rockets Arena; he wants to help.

“I Am Bratva”: Arrow 5x05 Olicity Heart-to-Heart


Show/EpisodeArrow, Season 5, Episode 5, “Human Target”
Ship(s): Oliver/Felicity (Olicity)

Arrow 5x05 Captain's Log

I’m not going to lie, shippers. This was a rough episode. I sort of expected it was going to be rough though, given all that lead up to it and things I’ve heard on social media. But expecting it doesn’t make seeing it any easier. But once I got through my gut emotional response, I realized something: this episode gave me hope. Oliver isn’t as eager to move on as I worried he might be (though I do think that particular moment is still in the cards so everyone, buckle up!). And Felicity isn’t so sure about her relationship with Billy. In fact, I’d wager that she doesn’t really realize just how much she is still in love with Oliver. Which means she will realize, probably about the time Oliver decides he’s ready to move on.

Anyhow, about the actual ep: We open with Church torturing Rene and he’s mean. He knows exactly how to get someone to talk and he’s trying all the tricks in the book on poor Wild Dog. The team is frantically searching for him, from Oliver pounding the streets with the new team to Felicity scouring every online hint she can find. Dig returns to the team to help them find Rene and Felicity gets a lead. She sends out Rory and Evelyn and they find signs Rene was there but no Rene. Felicity is able to track Church from there and finds he’s taken Rene into the woods… to dig his own grave.

Waiting for an Entrance: Arrow 5x04 Olicity Heart-to-Heart

Arrow, Season 5, Episode 4

Show/EpisodeArrow, Season 5, Episode 4, “Penance”
Ship(s): Oliver/Felicity (Olicity)

Arrow 5x04 Captain's Log

We’re still hanging in there, aren’t we Olicity fans? It’s getting more difficult, the longer we go without any sort of encouragement from the promotion around the show. But then we watch an episode and the scenes where Oliver and Felicity face one another are so laden with sexual and romantic tension, that I think “obviously they’re going to get back together.” The promotion and interviews might be bending over backwards to push a “no romance” agenda, but the scenes on our televisions tell a different story. And this week’s episode was no different.

Oliver has the team out in the field, intercepting one of Church’s goons after he stole something from Kord Industries. Wild Dog proves a little unpredictable and hard to manage in the field, making Oliver (and the rest of the team) irritated. Ragman is MIA and Felicity tells Oliver that she’s tried to contact him but no go. When Oliver returns to the bunker, he finds Rory lurking outside and learns that Felicity told him about Havenrock and Rory wants to quit the team.

Do You Trust Me?: Arrow 5x03 Olicity Heart-to-Heart

Show/Episode: Arrow, Season 5, Episode 3, “A Matter of Trust”
Ship(s): Oliver/Felicity (Olicity)

Arrow 5x03 Captain's Log

Recap:

Trust is the name of the game in this latest episode Arrow. Does Oliver trust the team? Do they trust him? It’s clear who does trust one another and that is Oliver and Felicity. Their partner dynamic was in full force, so much so that at one point I was wondering “and why aren’t they together right now?” But then I remembered the boyfriend and Felicity’s hiding from her issues and Oliver probably not wanting to push things and I remembered the real world.

It’s okay. I can wait. Olicity is going to come back, my fellow shippers. We have to endure some bumps along the way but they’ll get there.

Oliver and Felicity are training the team on what makes hero-work work. Namely: getting information. The recruits watch on security camera footage down in the old HIVE lair while Oliver interrogates a dealer for a new drug called Stardust, wanting the name of his supplier. (Yeah, the inside jokes this episode are wild and rampant and I admit to laughing my fool head off at every single one of them because I’m an easy target.) Felicity guides the new team members through what Oliver is doing and why and what the next step is. The way she so accurate depicts what Oliver will have her do upon his return was utterly delightful. They are so married, I can’t hardly stand it.

“It’s Really Hot”: Arrow 5x02 Olicity Heart-to-Heart

Show/Episode: Arrow Season 5, Episode 2, “The Recruits”
Ship(s): Oliver/Felicity (Olicity)

Arrow 5x02 Captain's Log

The Arrow fandom is imploding these days. The stress of Olicity being broken up and the lack of encouraging PR from the Powers That Be have gotten to a lot of people and there’s been discouraging talk everywhere you look. It’s hard out here for a shipper!

But for those of us who have chosen to have faith, to wait and see and to give the show (and ship) we love a chance, we were treated to an amazing episode of Arrow this week. The stunts were still amazing this week (if not as eye catching as they were in the premiere). The new recruits are an interesting collection of characters. And the Olicity moments (and there were quite a few) were off-the-charts amazing. I see now why we were teased that Oliver and Felicity’s dynamic is going to be like it was in season 1 and season 2. And how they meant that in a good way.

What Will Be Your Legacy?: Arrow 5x01 Olicity Heart-to-Heart

Arrow 5x01 Legacy

Recap:

Finally, the long hiatus is over. Since I’ve been around fandom the last five months, I’ve seen the Arrow fandom go into a steep decline. I wasn’t even sure if we’d make it to the premiere of Season 5! But here we are, we made it, and with most of our limbs intact! There was a lot of hype and dread and uncertainty surrounding this first episode. Did 5x01 “Legacy” live up to expectations? Or did it disappoint?

From where I was sitting, I was pleased and delighted by what I saw. The show felt invigorated. Oliver and Felicity particularly, had a new energy to them that I found myself drawn to. No, they’re not together. The breakup is still on! But they’re working together like a well-oiled machine. The banter is crisp and engaging. At times they seemed like an old married couple. So, yeah, kind of reminiscent of their interaction in Season 2.

First Look: Carolyn Brown’s Merry Cowboy Christmas (September 27, 2016)

Merry Christmas Cowboy by Carolyn Brown

Carolyn Brown
Merry Cowboy Christmas (Lucky Penny Ranch #3)
Forever / September 27, 2016 / $7.99 print & digital

‘Tis the night before Christmas and all through the house is the presence of one wickedly hot cowboy who’s come to stay for the holiday. Fiona Logan is downright shocked to return to her childhood home and find that the tall blond stranger who came to her rescue on an icy road will be sleeping just across the hall from her bedroom. Talk about temptation…

Jud Dawson never believed the Lucky Penny Ranch would live up to its name until now. Fiona is gorgeous, smart, funny, and everything he thought he’d never find. Now all he has to do is convince her to stick around town instead of hightailing it back to Houston. But with the wild weather, nosy neighbors, and a new baby in the family, getting her to admit that she’s falling in love might just take a Christmas miracle.

Christmas romance novels have always been my weakness.  I love the holiday season and I love romance novels so the two together is a recipe for bliss. With her latest addition to her Lucky Penny Ranch series, Merry Cowboy Christmas, Carolyn Brown catches on the perfect mix of holiday magic alongside romance hot enough to keep any body warm during the longest days of the year.

Why a Jon and Sansa (Jonsa) Marriage Makes Sense in Game of Thrones

Jon Snow & Sansa Stark

Game of Thrones is a tricky show to ship characters on. For one thing, your favorite character can be killed (often brutally; RIP Oberyn Martell) at a moment’s notice. Also, the world of Game of Thrones is so large in scale, that often many years can pass between characters even being in the same location as one another, if they ever even meet to begin with. Then, of course, there’s the incest. Familial relations are not an impediment on this show, and for many shippers, that can be a sticking point.

Show/Episode: Arrow Season 4, Episode 23, “Schism”
Ship(s): Oliver/Felicity (Olicity)

Arrow 4x23 Captain's Log

Well, folks. We didn’t get a reunion. Or a reconciliation. Oliver and Felicity didn’t even talk about their breakup. But somehow… it worked.

This was an episode filled with action, from start to nearly-the-finish. We began where we left off, with Darhk terrorizing Felicity, her mother and Curtis. He flings Curtis magically across the room and grabs Donna by the throat, slowly sucking out her life-force to try to force Felicity to reinitiate Rubicon for him. Luckily, Oliver shows up just in time, distracting Darhk so he releases Donna. Dig and Oliver fight Darhk and the Ghosts until Thea arrives with Darhk’s daughter, a knife at her throat, threatening to kill her. He steals Felicity’s laptop with the anti-Rubicon software and makes a run for it.

Put Aside Your Differences: Arrow 4x22 Olicity Heart-to-Heart

Show/Episode: Arrow 4x22 “Lost in the Flood”
Ship(s): Oliver/Felicity (Olicity)

Arrow 4x22 Olicity Captain's Log

We begin right where we left off last week: Havenrock has been nuked and Damien is drawing the power of 20,000 souls via his magic idol in the Star City nexus chamber. Oliver and Diggle are unable to even get close to him, even arrows and bullets turn to dust without Damien even having to do so much as lift an eyebrow. He throws them around a little but leaves them alive, he has business at the ark to deal with, after all.

Thea is mourning over Alex, who is in fact dead. She’s devastated and while her back is turned, Anarky makes a break for it. Malcolm shows up and drags Thea back to her “house” where he ties her to a chair and demands her cooperation or else he’ll have to do something really unpleasant. Thea tells him to just get it over with.

Felicity is still reeling from the destruction of Havenrock but there isn’t much time for grief: there’s a clock ticking on Rubicon and she and her dad need to get busy stopping it once and for all. Felicity steals a quick hug for comfort before remembering she’s on the outs with her father and pushing away. Curtis arrives with ideas on how to help out with Havenrock and Felicity has to quickly fill him in on HIVE being behind the destruction. Curtis is on board to help out. Before they can get much work done, however, she gets a text that sends her running to the bunker.

Father-Daughter Reunion: Arrow 4x21 Olicity Heart-to-Heart

Oliver, Felicity, and Noah Kuttler in Arrow Season 4, episode 21Show/Episode: Arrow Season 4, Episode 21, “Monument Point”
Ship(s): Oliver/Felicity (Olicity)

Remember last week when we learned that Darhk has control of the world’s nuclear weapons and that Thea is currently stuck in what is Darhk’s “ark,” underneath the city? We pick up right there, with the team (or what’s left of them) figure out Darhk’s plan and try to think of a plan on how to stop him. Felicity says they need her father, who is the only one who can really crack into Rubicon, the protocol that is used to control the nukes. Dig is hesitant about this plan, feeling soured on trusting family members at the moment (especially evil ones). Oliver tells him they should trust Felicity. They also need to make sure they find Star City’s nexus chamber because that’s where Darhk will be harvesting the dark magic if one of those nukes hits.

Dig and Oliver chase down Kuttler at his last known location and find out they just missed him. Tapping into the surveillance shows them that Brick (yes, the baddie from season 3) and his Ghost buddies (including Murmur) showing up, clearly intent on killing Kuttler. Which leaves Felicity feeling rather conflicted. She’s not happy with her father but he is her father and they do need him to avert the nuclear apocalypse. So there’s that. The only clue she has to where Kuttler went is a root director named “Ravenspur”. It sounds familiar, but she doesn’t know why.

The Voice in My Head: Arrow 4x20 Olicity Heart-to-Heart

Show/Episode: Arrow Season 4, Episoe 20 “Genesis”
Ship(s): Oliver/Felicity (Olicity)

Arrow 4x20 Captain's Log

We start with Darhk cleaning house at HIVE. Clearly, they made the wrong move in not trying to get him out of prison. He assassinates the two local members, which makes the non-local members toe the line obediently. Team Arrow is wise to what Darhk is doing. Oliver has a plan to visit Hub City to meet with a contemporary of Constantine who can possibly help him learn to defend against Darhk’s magic. He gives the rest of the team time off (including Thea, who is going on vacation with Alex). Felicity, however, doesn’t like how dangerous this mission sounds and insists on joining him. They can take the company jet! And get a room! Whoops, she means roomS! Plural!  Haha!  Oh my.

Diggle doesn’t want to sit still, he wants to find Andy. He needs to find Andy. Lyla, who is in a mobile “safehouse” with baby Sara at the moment, doesn’t want him going after Andy and HIVE by himself. She sends him to get diapers which of course means he’s going to go after Andy by himself. It leads to a shootout between the two and a chase while shooting and just… even though Lyla tells Dig to wait for backup, Dig doesn’t listen and pursues Andy anyhow. Of course, it leads to him getting captured by Andy, and subsequently tortured.

[Andy, that's no way to treat your brother...]
