When I read that Slade tells [Laurel] that Oliver is the Arrow, I definitely felt as though that made her embrace the situation even more and made her fall more in love with him. Because at the end of the day, he is the person that she thought he was
Where is the sick bag?!!
Right. Because nothing is more romantic than a crazy lunatic showing up at your door telling you the man you are in love with, who cheated on you with YOUR SISTER and is currently banging again, has been lying to you for an additional 2 years. Every day. All day. Again. And instead of telling you his deep dark secret himself, because he trusts you and wants to share every part of his life with you and allow you to make your own choices, it’s his psychotic enemy who tells you. The psychotic enemy the man you love has also lied about even knowing. Because why would he want to WARN you that you could be a potential target.
Gee. It’s amazing Oliver & Laurel didn’t run off to Vegas after that scene.
And can I just say…”because at the end of the day, he is the person she though he was.” THAT is the EXACT problem with Laurel & Oliver. Oliver has to PROVE himself to Laurel, which…yes I understand why Laurel is seeking validation, but that’s the exact problem. Laurel needs her love for Oliver validated in order to reconcile it to herself. Love isn’t about proving who you are. Love is about acceptance. Oliver doesn’t need to prove he’s a fucking superhero to be worthy of Laurel’s love. But he does need to be a fucking superhero for Laurel to validate to herself why she should remain in love with the guy who screwed her sister and has consistently lied to her the ENTIRE TIME HE’S KNOWN HER. But I guess those are just pesky little details. Relationships aren’t based on trust, acceptance and honesty. Relationships are built on evidence. Proof. And that being a superhero excuses any and all hurtful and shameful behavior.
But yup. Laurel is a strong woman. A woman to look up to. A woman who values herself and loves herself. Laurel represents the iconic strength of Black Canary.
WHAT IS THIS SHIT? The woman’s movement just lost 30 years. Susan B. Anthony is rolling over in her grave.
Sometimes I think Katie Cassidy smokes a little something. It’s okay. Do what you gotta do babe to get through the day. But just so you know…it reflects in your answers to the general public regarding your story line.
What I wouldn’t give for KC to just say “Yeah. Fine. He’s a superhero. It doesn’t change their past. She can forgive him. She’ll always love him. But Laurel deserves better than lies.”
But then hell would actually freeze over.(via jbuffyangel)
