This season of Arrow has definitely been one of the better ones and part of that might be because we’re starting to see different sides of Oliver and Felicity.
I knew Oliver had a dark side. When he first became the Arrow, he killed the bad guys. I thought he did it to rid the world of the dregs of society. But the episode in which Prometheus kidnapped Oliver and tortured him showed that Oliver killed because he liked it. He killed even when it wasn’t necessary.
When Felicity joined Team Arrow, she was the light to Oliver’s darkness. She showed him there was a better way and made him a better man. Diggle seems to have picked up that torch. In the last episode, he brought Oliver back from the edge and showed Oliver that what he and the team do is important.
Diggle also has been worried about Felicity and with good reason. Since Billy’s death, Felicity has sought out her own darkness. She’s back to hacking and is working with a large group of hackers. She has shown that she is willing to do anything it takes to bring down Prometheus.
The direction of the storyline makes me wonder if now Oliver will take the torch from Diggle and become the light to Felcity’s darkness. Will the roles reverse and will Oliver save Felicity from herself and, if he does, will we have another chance at Olicity? I would prefer Olicity over the current Oliver/Susan relationship.
Do you think Oliver will be the one to save Felicity?

At these moments in Oliver´s history when he was confronted by Prometheus but also threatened and manipulated, Oliver is undoubtedly aknowlodeging that Prometheus is not right and that the people who have been around him have decided to be where they are by themselves not by he.
In that torture his fears were faced and I believe that part of it will cause Oliver to find Felicity to return her to his side, as part of the team as a romantic relationship too.
I haven’t enjoyed seeing this side of Felicity. I’m hoping Oliver helps her see the light and they end up together again.
