Ladies and gentlemen, we have a new ship in town and ship thy name is Olicity! Is it just meror did Oliver and Felicity get WAY into each other in this episode? Can I just say I am definitely not a fan of this show but will be watching it for YOU by popular demand. I have a list of shows that I don’t like to watch but do anyway….on that list is also Revenge and Hannibal. At least Colton Haynes is on this show even though I am still nursing the wounds from him leaving Teen Wolf so abruptly.
Oliver fights “Deadshot,” a Russian assassin hired to kill some businessmen who all want Unidec Industries
He teams up with Detective Lance save Walter and the other buyers and kill Deadshot.
Thea’s is having teenage angsty times where she doesn’t listen to anyone but her teenage self. When Oliver sees her out at a club and questions her presence there, she tells him that Laurel and Tommy have been sleeping together.
Laurel and Tommy wonder why Oliver was so accepting of their trysts, but Laurel figures its because he has no right to judge her.
In a flashback sequence , the Chinese man who shot Oliver was actually trying to help and save him from others on the island. Oliver tries to escape, but is pursued by an unknown gaggle of weirdly cloaked men.
This could go either way. It could be TERRIBLE or it could be good.
I definitely liked it and it definitely had a very interesting start. Obviously we have Katie Cassidy as Laurel, a CW alum, who we also all loved in Harper’s Island. Usually when you watch a pilot and you just know it’s going to suck, you get that feeling which I like to simply label “the dread.” I did not get “the dread” from this, not at all. Do I think it is going to last the season? Yes, I do. Do I think it will get a second season? Sure! I am waiting to see the ratings at this point, but something tells me between Arrow and Beauty and the Beast this fall, CW has some winners on their hands. Also, with Gossip Girl being cancelled, there’s an extra time slot….so who’s it going to be???
