Note: Spoilerphobes, beware—this post contains mild SPOILERS for Arrow Season 3.
Fellow Olicity fans, our ship may be coming in sooner than expected!
In a just-released interview with TVLine, Arrow executive producer Greg Berlanti reveals that, in Season 3, “Oliver believes he can finally have a private life and asks Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) out on a date.” He goes on to explain that Oliver's feelings for Felicity, whatever they may be, will be an “active part of the season this year.”
Sounds promising, right? But will it actually go in the direction we want? This show does love to play with our hearts, and we did just learn that Brandon Routh has joined the cast as a potential love interest for Felicity. Hmmm...
Can you see Oliver/Felicity as a long-term couple? This girl's just hoping against hope they aren't on-again/off-again, if they do, in fact, become a legit romantic item.
