Felicity

Does anyone here still like Felicity? I agree the Oliver love plot can be a bit of a drag for a superhero show; but I think shes had some good character development.

In season 1 she was a nerdy shy hacker; and by season 4 shes grown in a strong independent who keeps Oliver in check and keeps the team grounded. I do sort of wish they'd cut down the team a bit because it's very crowded and has alot of needless subplots. I think Felicity's Mum is a bit pointless and she never should of gotten into a romance with Oliver; but in terms of being a character herself I think shes one of the stronger parts of Arrow.

I can see why people don't like the romance with her and Oliver; but as a character shes well handled. I'd like to see her moved to legends or something where she can be herself rather than be used to drag out a boring love story.

I feel the opposite of you. That the romance was not really the issue but the

keeps Oliver in check
is a problem. That is Diggle's role not hers. She speaks as if she has experience that she does not. Diggle is the mentor guy, that's his job.

keeps the team grounded

This was actually done well for a while but they have gotten away from it and made her just kind of rude. Before she was a good window to what a "normal" person would feel at times and thus a good voice of reason to talk the team down emotionally and have them reset due to her unique perspective (in terms of the group) as someone who hasn't been fighting for her life, but it went off the rails.

But I dropped the show like 3 episodes ago so it's just kind of whatever.

I can see that's what they're trying to do, but the writers or producers are letting their infatuation with Felicity ruin it.

Instead of being emotional support, they've turned Oliver into a passive, reactionary, incompetent mope. He wasn't the Green Arrow until Felicity made him. He didn't think he could defeat Darhk until Felicity said he could.

Meanwhile, Arrow fucks over all of their other, much stronger female characters. Shado got killed due to a man's choice to motivate another man. Black Canary gets killed due to a man's choice to motivate another man.

Laurel was constantly berated by everyone, physically beaten, killed... while Felicity inherited millions of dollars, recovered from multiple bullet woulds due to a magic back-chip, whines that Oliver isn't good enough for her and berates him, and receives nothing but love, attention, and constant praise from every single character.

Yeh that's true, although I have to admit I like Moira's death a lot. It felt to me like a natural end to her character arc, and was a result of her own noble choice to protect her kids.

It wasn't like Laurel's "we should totally kill someone this season, we'll figure out who later" situation.

Diggle's been too busy going muh brother in this season to do his job, user.

I have to come to regret seeing Moira gone cause Moira was an legitimate HBIC. Now the HBIC is MAMA SMOAK (something her fans call her) and it enrages me because EBR doesn't have enough presence to be a bottom bitch let alone a HBIC.

Because it's true. And deep inside you like her too.

The problem with Moira's death is that Moira was the grounding element to Oliver. Without Mommy Moira Oliver lost his connection to the city.

WHY DID THEY KILL LAUREL INSTEAD OF THIS ANNOYING MARY SUE OC?! WHY?
IF THEY WERE ONLY GOING FOR "KILLING AN IMPORTANT CAST MEMBER TO REMIND THE AUDIENCE THAT THIS VILLAIN IS STILL A THREAT", WHY DID IT HAVE TO BE A CHARACTER PEOPLE ACTUALLY LIKED/WHO IS AN INTEGRAL PART OF GREEN ARROW'S MYTHOS?!

Imagine being Stephen Amell in that scene and having to be all like "damn, EBR, you fuckin' fine, all sexy with your okay face and horrific androgynous monster body. I would totally have sex with you, both my character and the real me." when all he really wants to do is fuck another 16 year old in his dressing room. Like seriously imagine having to be Stephen and not only sit in that chair while Emily Bett Rickards flaunts her disgusting body in front of you, the favorable lighting barely concealing her stretchmarks and leathery skin, and just sit there, take after take, hour after hour, while she perfected that dance. Not only having to tolerate her monstrous fucking visage but her haughty attitude as everyone on set tells her she's STILL GOT IT and DAMN, EMILY BETT RICKARDS LOOKS LIKE *THAT*?? because they're not the ones who have to sit there and watch her mannish fucking gremlin face contort into types of grimaces you didn't even know existed before that day. You've been fucking nothing but a healthy diet of blondes and supermodels and later alleged rape victims for your ENTIRE CAREER coming straight out of the boonies in Toronto. You've never even seen anything this fucking disgusting before, and now you swear you can taste the sweat that's breaking out on her dimpled stomach as she sucks it in to writhe it suggestively at you, smugly assured that you are enjoying the opportunity to get paid to sit there and revel in her "statuesque (for that is what she calls herself)" beauty, the beauty she worked so hard for with personal trainers in the previous months. And then the director calls for another take, and you know you could kill every single person in this room before the studio security could put you down, but you sit there and endure, because you're fucking Stephen Amell. You're not going to lose your future hollywood career over this. Just bear it. Hide your face and bear it.

Sheeky Forums is far too willing to indulge in its hate boner for Felicity. They aren't wrong half the time mind you, but sometimes it does just seem like people complain to seem like part of the group.

Prime fucking example of this was when Diggle was in the Flash when Barry asked him how Felicity was doing.

Hurrr fuck off Felicity!
When she's not on screen everyone should be asking, Where's Felicity?
Even on the Flash we can't escape her
Ad nauseam

Felicity was part of an attack on Oliver, a mayoral candidate that left her crippled.

Felicity is also Barry's freind

Is it so crazy he'd ask how she's doing?

But nah, gotta over react and pretend that despite the fact that there's a legit reason that makes perfect sense for her to be brought up, that it's shit writing.

There was another time in one of the early episodes of this season as well, I can't remember which one, where she called Oliver out on his bullshit of the episode and was, for once, being perfectly rational and in the right.

cue the Felicity hate anyway

I don't like Felicity much. I'd much prefer if she wasn't on the show anymore, but christ alive does Sheeky Forums need to cool it's shit sometimes.

The last few episodes weren't too Felicity-centric, I think. She wasn't prominently featured and when she was, she contributed to the story through her role in the team, not as drama generator. She doesn't bother me more than anyone else if it isn't a Olicity plot. But if it is an Olicity plot, Oliver is just as insufferable as her.

The new dynamic on the team is actually kinda nice, I think. Except that Laurel's gone. Really grown to like her character.

Flash needs more appearances from Felicity. She's the best character in the arrowverse, they should utilize her more.

I always saw it, in the first season at least, that while Diggle kept Oliver in line, Felicity sort of kept them both in line as well.

Checks and balances.

But I see your point.
