    Nope.
    This is the ep that broke me and I’ve been watching since the beginning. The writers had the chance to show a good, strong couple moving forward and instead we get soap opera crap that makes no sense, destroys the characters and is just plain awful.
    Next week I’ll be watching something else.
    ’nuff said.

    1. Honestly, I agree that the way they GOT them here was stupid and contrived, but I’m glad they’re not taking the easy way out with the fixing it. For Felicity to forgive him when he said pretty words but he’s done nothing to prove himself would be, in my opinion, bad for Felicity’s character, and bad for Oliver’s growth. Yes, this was PAINFUL as hell, and unnecessary to boot, but now that we’re here, I’m glad the writers are taking the “fixing it” part seriously.

      Like what Lizzie said below the way that Oliver and Felicity got to this point is beyond ridiculous and the cheapest kind of cheap drama that we’ve seen, but the writers are doing something right with not going for the easy fix. Sure, they seem to be having some fun making us really hurt and work this reconciliation that is coming by season’s end. But Oliver and Felicity are going to emerge stronger because of this. And the next time that they face difficult times in their lives — because let’s be honest, nothing is ever drama-free especially on TV — they will be better equipped to handle it as a team because they’ve learned from their mistakes.
