Can we talk about that perfect bookends of Felicity’s chip? I mean when that chip started working, she ended her relationship with Oliver. She walked away from their problems and Oliver let her. They left their feelings, their unresolved issues, the lies they keep to themselves, and ended their relationship. Since then, they haven’t actually talked about them and why their relationship fell apart.
And now… that chip is no longer working. Felicity can’t run away. Oliver can’t shut her out either. They’re in a situation that will force them to rewind the clock to the moment before her chip started working. Go back to where their relationship fell apart. The conversation they might have had if not for that damn chip. It had to break before they could be healed. And hopefully, when they’ve talked and confided in one another, that implant will once again start working.
