so, I’m catching up on my queue and reblogs and andyouweremine had tagged a gifset but I feel like discussing so I’m just going to swipe the tags for your enjoyment.
#YOU KNOW THE OTHER REASON THE ‘Please save Oliver’ bugged me? #THAT’S YOUR JOB TOO FELICITY #WE HAD A WHOLE EPISODE OF GIRL!POWER GO!FELICITY TAKE DOWN THOSE BAD GUYS #YOU’RE AN INVALUABLE MEMBER OF THIS TEAM #AND THEN IN LITERALLY THE NEXT EPISODE IT’S LIKE SHE FORGOT SHE GETS TO HELP SAVE OLIVER TOO
(I’m assuming the first/earlier reason had something to do with THE OTHER PEOPLE IN THE HOUSE COME ON)
BECAUSE YES. This line was SO out of character and out of place. SO unnecessary.
Sure, Felicity is one of the few people who recognizes that even Oliver can’t win every fight. Sure, she’s worried once Sara explains what’s going on. SURE she wants them ALL to go in and come out in one piece.
But she also has a job to do and a house to monitor for heat signatures and we see her calm and doing that IN THE VERY NEXT SCENE.
The Felicity we met in season 1 was worried about justice, and saving lives, and balancing Oliver’s aggressive approach. This season, she’s slipping more and more often into the “worried home base” person, and I would even be fine with that, but don’t tell me she’s not worried about Thea and the team heading out those doors. Honestly, that line felt so wrong on so many levels.
