i decided to not get her but now i want her oh my god

GUYS GUYSSS WE’VE GOT IT ALL WRONG- NOT ONLY IS KARIN THE MOTHER, BUT ITACHI IS THE FATHER

OH MY GOD I FIGURED OUT GAIDEN AND IT ALL MAKES SO MUCH SENSE NOW!!!

OROCHIMARU MIGHT HAVE HAD AN OLD SAMPLE OF ITACHI’S SPERM AS A DNA SAMPLE FROM BACK WHEN HE WAS TRYING TO GET THE SHARINGAN [DON’T ASK HOW HE GOT IT, JUST ROLL WITH IT]

AND KARIN ONE DAY SAW IT WITH THE LABEL ‘UCHIHA SPERM’ AND THOUGHT IT WAS SASUKE’S AND DECIDED TO IMPREGNATE HERSELF SO SASUKE WOULD HAVE TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY AND WOULD BE WITH HER

BUT THEN SASUKE FOUND OUT AND HE TOLD HER IT WASN’T HIS AND SHE FOUND OUT IT WAS ITACHI’S LOL

BUT IT WAS TOO LATE TO ABORT SO SHE ENDED UP GIVING BIRTH TO ITACHI’S KID - SARADA UCHIHA!

SHE DIDN’T WANT SARADA THOUGH SO SASUKE TOOK HER AND SAKURA RAISED HER

THAT ALSO EXPLAINS WHY SHIN, WHO’S INFATUATED WITH ITACHI, WAS AFTER SARADA. NOT BECAUSE OF SASUKE, BUT BECAUSE OF ITACHI!!!

ALSO, KARIN HAS GLASSES AND ITACHI HAD PROBLEMS WITH HIS EYES TOO- OF COURSE SARADA WOULD NEED GLASSES

WHO ELSE AGREES???

Oh god though, that episode killed me. How anyone can hate Laurel after that is utterly beyond me.

I know everyone is talking about the scene with Laurel telling her father the truth and god that was heartbreaking. Seriously props to Katie Cassidy and Paul Blackthorne, they were amazing and completely shattered my heart.

But my favourite scene of the episode was when Laurel decided to stop trying to be Sara and to just be her. When she pushed away Vertigo!Sara and defeated the Count, I was cheering like mad. BUT THEN, she looked up and saw Sara, the real Sara, watching over her, proud of her big sis. 

You just know that Sara has been watching over her, watching her stumble and fall but constantly getting back on her feet. But you also know she’s been watching her try to emulate her, to BE Sara and that Sara would always just want her to be herself, because LAUREL was always Sara’s hero. And now she’s finally seen it and she couldn’t be more proud.

That was honestly the first time Arrow has actually made me legitimately cry. Not just tear up or get emotional (which has happened plenty of times!) but actually cry real tears. And I just, oh god I can’t. That episode was so good!
