Also, today I am planned to have lunch with one of my other friends who is struggling with God and understanding who he truly is. Struggling with faith and believing in Him. Please pray the Holy Spirit just works through me and blesses this time. Thank you ❤️ love all of you.
Disclaimer: I do not 100% believe that the parallel I’m about to discuss was intentional on the writers part. In fact, given how incompetent the Arrow writers have shown themselves to be and how they went out of their way to erase the love that Laurel and Oliver shared after season 2 I’m willing to bet it wasn’t. As someone who has written a lot over the years (both fiction and non fiction) sometimes connections are made inadvertently. Sometimes your writing can take you somewhere even you aren’t aware of. That could be what happened here, or these people are actually smart (lol) and it was intentional. Either way we’ll probably never know.

now on to the topic at hand…..
I had the bright idea a few nights ago to watch the last scene Laurel has with Oliver before she dies. Clearly I enjoy pain and misery, but after my hour of tears and sorrow I was actually a little thankful that I did watch it. The only time prior I had watched the scene I was filled with anger so I didn’t actually pay attention to what was actually happening, I was too caught up in the fact that it was happening in the first place. But viewing it with fresh eyes gave me a chance to see something new and answered questions that I had before. Questions like “why didn’t Oliver tell Laurel he loved her when she confessed that he was the love of her life?” and “why didn’t oliver tell Laurel he loved her along with the rest of the team?” or “Why did they think it made sense to have Laurel confess her feelings to him suddenly”. The answers to those questions alone could be put in a meta all by itself but I’ll give a short answer to that later on.
(SN: I also learned exactly how Laurel died. She had an embolism post-surgery which I’m assuming traveled to the brain and caused her seizure and proved to be fatal. The doctor says it quickly when she rushes to Laurel to try to start life saving measures. It’s still a crock of shit but at least medically there was an answer for how she died that makes sense and it didn’t just “happen”)
There is a very lovely parallel between what happened with Laurel and Oliver on her death bed and in his dream world and what happened between them in season 1. A parallel that proves that Laurel and Oliver always try to find their way back to each other and that their love was always meant to be and gives validity to the idea that Laurel truly is the love of Oliver’s life just like he is the love of hers.
