5x20 title is "missing" people are saying that Chase is gonna kidnap someone (some are saying William) and take the person to Lian Yu. What do you think?
5x22 is “Missing,” not 5x20, which super effects my answer here.
I sort of doubt William will be kidnapped. He was kidnapped the last time we saw him, after all, and that feels too repetitive to me. Will we see him again? Yes. I think we will. Maybe not this season, but I do think we’ll get to see him with Oliver and the two of them finally on the same page. He’s come up too frequently for that to be dropped. But in spite of Oliver’s attachment to him, the audience isn’t attached to him (except for… you know… me) and that’s a weak plot-thread to follow through on for a season ender. You need your audience more invested than that. Main characters in danger only this time of year.
I do think Felicity will be kidnapped and I do think she’ll be brought to Lian Yu. There’s circumstantial evidence here and there, of course, but a lot of that is just based on gut instinct. They’ve put off having her kidnapped and in real danger for a reeeeeally long time. I think we’re at that point and I think it’s a good turning point for the team, for Olicity and for both Oliver and Felicity’s individual growth. As always, the Arrow writers like double meanings for their episodes, so I think we’ll see something missing earlier in the episode and then wind up with her kidnapped partway through. I also think that it’s not just that she’s missing, but what Oliver’s missing with her gone. Any which way you look at it, though, I’m looking forward to it.
P.S. This was my 4,000th post! I don’t know why this feels noteworthy…
