So we watched the last two episodes of Arrow last night and, afterwards, I turned to my wife and said “I’m not imagining that, am I? Nyssa and Laurel were totally into one another, weren’t they?”
I mean, they went training together and Nyssa got to beat up a guy in front of Laurel, peacocking the hell out of it. Then they went on a first date, which Laurel only seemed to realize about halfway through after she’d been staring across the table at Nyssa. And they confessed that they had FEELZ for one another but it made them both horribly awkward. Then there was all that arm grabbing and standing protectively in front of Nyssa that Laurel was doing (peacocking her own way, I’m sure), not to mention THAT EYE CONTACT they had mid-fight.
I didn’t want to ship them. I DIDN’T WANT TO SHIP THEM. But if these actresses were intending to show a burgeoning friendship and nothing else, THEY FAILED.
