This moment actually made me feel bad for SA, and it's not often I feel bad for him. It's one thing to make a joke about Oliver's stoicism, but this becomes a joke about SA's acting ability at his expense.
I'm also tired of people constantly shitting on Oliver (and Arrow) who keeps sacrificing everything, even getting to be there when his daughter grows up, and without whom the Arrowverse wouldn't exist, so that plays into it too, of course. And to give credit where credit is due: throughout the years SA's without a doubt the person who's championed the Arrowverse the most, promoted it more than anyone else, and seen his show suffer because of the expansion of the Arrowverse. Sigh.
