Remember when Stephen talked about how you know that a character is going to be around for a while when they have a set built for them?
Oliver and Felicity are having a bedroom set built. Oh yes, a whole set, just for them. One we haven’t even seen yet, which means it might not show up until mid season.
And this made me happy. What made me even happier was thinking about how the character of Oliver hasn’t had a bedroom on the show in SO long.
He had the mansion in season 1 and 2, but I don’t think we saw him in the bed past the pilot (am I right?) We saw him share a bed with Sara, but that was a make shift one in the lair or in the Clock Tower (can’t remember which).
Which means, aside from the scene in 4x01, we’ve never seen Oliver in his own bed, in his own home, with any girlfriend other than Felicity.
Mckenna, Helena, Laurel - all at their places. Sara - boat, hotel, makeshift bed. Isabel - hotel. Shado - lake side.
Huh. I can’t believe I’ve only just noticed that.
I thought I was excited for the Olicity bedroom set before - now I’m beside myself, because it’s an environment we have literally almost never seen him in. Cosy, comfy, relaxed, happy, shared bed.
Oh god. Yes please. All the yeses.
