oh no babe! I said that scene made Oliver know he LOVED her not IN LOVE with her! Sorry if I confused you!! Don’t you think it’d be TOO early for him to be IN love with her that early. After 2x07, he knew he was scared of losing her.
Now if you’re wondering what scene I THINK was the scene that Oliver knew he was IN LOVE with Felicity Smoak then the answer would be when she gave him the “You are not alone and I believe in you” speech. Did you see the look on that man’s face?!? And did you see how his behavior towards her changed after that??
One of MY FAVORITE and UNDERATED scenes OF ALL TIME was the scene from 2x22 when Oliver and Digg go get the mirakuru cure from Blood and he tells her that she needs to stay with Roy. I LOVE that scene. At first, he’s like thinking about what to say to her. It’s different for him because now he knows he’s in love with her. He does this cute little head shake like “I’m sorry babe but I need you to stay here. is that ok wifey?” and then when she tells him he better come back or she’ll be pissed, he makes the CUTEST little “I’m so grateful for you” smile and touches her shoulder. I think THAT “I believe in you” speech was the scene where Oliver Queen FINALLY allowed himself to truly fall in love with her. I think he was holding himself back the whole time.
I’m sorry if I confused you bb!! If you’ve been following me for a long time, you’d know how much I hate writing things like this because I ALWAYS end up confusing everybody. Sorry again bb!! but anyway that’s my opinion on when Oliver Queen ALLOWED himself to be in love with Felicity Smoak ;)
