IF YOU’RE PLANNING ON GETTING MAD AT FELICITY FOR NOT WANTING TO BREAK UP WITH RAY, PLEASE READ THIS.
My thoughts are that Ray is going to confront Felicity about her feelings for Oliver, and this time she may not deny it at all.
Listen, even if Felicity tries to fight the break-up, I don’t think y’all should get upset about it. I mentioned in a previous post that, while Oliver and Felicity are growing close again (Thank GOD), Felicity is still under the impression that Oliver is “permanently unavailable” and “emotionally unavailable.”
She has had no reason to think anything has changed. Oliver has told her time and time again that he can’t be with her and save the city. He tells her several times that he chooses Starling City over her. The Arrow over her (as recently as 3x17, really).
Not to mention the moments she has with Oliver where she sort of, you know, MENTIONS to him and REMINDS him, “hey buddy, you chose this.” In a way, I think she’s putting out feelers to see if he feels any differently.
I’m all on Felicity’s side on THIS one. I’m a girl. I would like to be someone’s first choice every once in a while. Felicity understands and is herself committed to saving the city, but she doesn’t see that and a relationship as mutually exclusive things. But Oliver does. And Oliver chose the city.
With that in mind, can you blame her if she has no interest in breaking things off with Ray? With that in mind, why would she?
