Felicity: “I’m just used to being your girl. I mean not your girl, girl. Your girl. I know it sounds like the same word, but it means something different in my head.”
Oliver: “You will always be my girl, Felicity.”

Sara is home and taking up a good bit of room in Team Arrow to where Felicity starts to feel like she isn’t pulling her weight. Not only is it great that this isn’t simply Felicity being jealous that Oliver is with Sara, but also that the writers have Diggle initially think that this is what is wrong. Why is this great? Because then Felicity sets the record straight on what is really bothering her. It was also nice to witness some of the greatness that is Felicity and Diggle’s relationship. Sara and Felicity also have a couple bonding moments. They are adorable together. Give them all the scenes, please. The personal highlight of Felicity going out into the field is that this allowed the writers to showcase all of Team Arrow fighting and being on scene together. Each one of them plays a crucial role in taking down William Tockman aka The Clock King, and then Felicity is the one to actually disable him. What did you think of Felicity during this episode?
Oliver confronts Laurel about how she keeps playing the blame game. This is fantastic for many reasons. It is great for Oliver because he finally stops putting himself in a position to be blamed and hurt every time he reaches out to try to help Laurel. Also, it is fantastic to see someone finally point out the flaws in Laurel’s logic. He snaps her out of it, while also reminding her that she isn’t the only one with huge family issues going on. It will be interesting to see how Oliver and Laurel’s relationship progresses from here. Hopefully Oliver keeps his word and stops running after Laurel, making her come to him and show him that she is changing. What did you think of this confrontation scene?
This episode featured two people in particular showing that they are not idiots. Laurel isn’t oblivious during the most awkward dinner ever concerning Sara and Oliver being back together. She recognizes the looks that Oliver and Sara share. It is great that she doesn’t have to wait around to be told they are together. Instead, she figures it out. Thea is also not oblivious to the drama happening between Oliver and Moira. These are small things, but it would have been annoying if neither Laurel nor Thea realized what was happening right in front of them. However, why did Thea think putting Oliver and Moira in a room together would help any?
Here are quick thoughts on elsewhere in the episode. The flashback scenes in the episode don’t really have a lot happening in them, but they show more of Sara’s character. She checks up on the pilot’s daughter simply because he asked her to. Sara did not have to do that. She definitely did not have to establish a relationship with Sin, nor did she have to keep that picture in her wallet. This is a small storyline, but it speaks volumes to the type of person that Sara is. The tear jerker moment of the episode happens between Laurel and Sara. Laurel finally admits to what she is going through to Sara, which made me bawl my eyes out. Such a fantastic moment, and hopefully the writers will show more of Sara and Laurel rebuilding their relationship. What did you think of the episode?
