    Spoiler Discussion Thread: The Sequel

    I can only really see it happening if the FFs are going to be undone by COIE or something else. There are already (valid) complaints that the FFs give the impression that nothing Oliver, Felicity and the rest of the team sacrificed and worked for in the last 7 years amount to jack, doubling down on that by killing Felicity the same way Moira died just seems like a terrible plan. Especially when you have another season you need people to show up for.

    I have no iea how they'll write Felicity out of the FF but I refuse to believe the show is stupid enough to go with a real death and as @Kymmi says completely lose most Felicity fans. Also does TV Guide really still believe Felicity faked her death and went into hiding? All the witnesses ended up dead and she was 'hiding' in a secret prison room in the evil headquarters...I'm pretty sure she wasn't the one who faked her death.

    S05.E03: Chapter Eighty-Four

    I really don't get this either, it's not the same as being raised in the same household and I understand Jane wanting that for him but they're full on acting like he doesn't have siblings in the middle of a story about him fighting with his sisters. It's weird. It might make sense if they were being raised completely separately with no/little interaction but even when Rafael was in prison Jane and Petra made sure they saw each other frequently.

    I'm starting to think season 8 will just be set up for COIE and not really Arrow as we know it at all. Which, honestly, I'd prefer to a Felicity-less standard season but I'm not sure it would work.

    Weirdly, 7.15 Training Day is still unavailable/not listed, at least for me. I'm assuming it's an oversight caused by having to pretty much restore the entire WB catalogue rather than deliberate but I hope they fix it.

    Maybe there's something they specifically need the meta cry for? I can't for the life of me imagine what it would be but it's the only explanation I can think of for her suddenly suiting up as BC.

    I'm choosing to sit at the optimist table too. I'm worried because that's my nature but I also can't imagine them doing an actual horrible ending. That said, much like @kes0704 ,if the words "love letter to fans" escape anyone's mouth, all bets are off because those words and "here, have a steaming pile of shit" seem to be roughly interchangeable to these people.

    S05.E02: Chapter Eighty-Three

    I'm not sure who the show is trying to appeal to right now...As much as I love them, Jane and Rafael are being super selfish right now and I'm not sure it's even realistic, yes, they are worried about the relationship but Jane loved Michael and Rafael deliberately sought to bring Michael/Jason back to her so this all about us attitude doesn't work and now Jason is being shifty...who is this satisfying? And I desperately wish they'd let go of Rose, I don't think she was ever as compelling a villain as the showrunners thought and now...I know telenovelas are over the top but everything about Rose is ridiculous and not in a particularly entertaining way.

    Yeah, I'm guessing they don't have anything locked down yet and even if everyone fully intends for it to happen, making promises is risky if there's no actual deal/agreement in place. Filming dates wouldn't be set, the play could be extended (supposing that is even Emily's only conflict) and if they promised a return and it for some reason didn't pan out, it would be ugly.
  10. I know, I keep thinking/telling myself, "I'm fine, it's just someone leaving a tv show" and then something gets posted and I'm back in the "yeah...nope, not okay" place.

    I just can't imagine the finale without Emily and Felicity. I don't think the tributes necessarily mean anything one way or the other (though I get the fear) because even with only 10 episodes, the female lead leaving before the final season is a big deal that will change the fabric of the show and from a personal standpoint, most of these people are going from seeing her nearly daily during the season to maybe once or twice.

    Spoiler Discussion Thread: The Sequel

    I keep starting to post but I can't figure out what I want to say. I wish Emily all the best but I can't imagine watching Arrow without Felicity. Now in addition to Oliver's mission seemingly failing, he apparently largely abandoned his wife and baby to continue to try to save a city that annually tells him to fuck off. Gee, that sounds great...

    S05.E01: Chapter Eighty-Two

    That did seem a little strange, I'm pretty sure there are computers in Montana. Part of me is still convinced/afraid this is some sort of trick on Rose's part. I know Raf said he had a DNA test done but if I'm supposed to believe she could pull off faking Michael's death then I can also believe she could fake DNA results. I don't have any idea what she'd be gaining in that scenario but I also don't know what faking Michael's death and erasing his memory gained her.

    S05.E01: Chapter Eighty-Two

    I enjoyed the episode. It's true that Michael's feelings were largely ignored but I'm not sure how else they could have handled it. He's been Jason for four years and as far as he's concerned, he doesn't know these people. I'm assuming his and Jane's reaction to what has been done to him will come more into play once Jane has had a little time to deal with the immediate "We're getting engaged! Oh wait, no we're not because your beloved husband isn't actually dead...but he also isn't really the man you loved right now and has no memory of you." fallout and if/when his memories return. Right now, there is little any one could do for him beyond Jane trying to trigger his memory because he didn't seem to want or need comfort and even if he did, he'd probably have a hard time accepting it from strangers who insist they love him.

    I don't even understand how a Felicity spin-off would work. If it's a spin-off set in between now and 2040, she apparently spent those years mostly in hiding so nothing terribly interesting would happen. Also, regardless of what happened to Oliver, in 20 years, she's still wearing her wedding ring and has been raising their secret child so romance is probably off the table which seems unlikely to fly on the CW. And if it's set in 2040, it simply makes more sense to center a spin-off on the next generation than someone who would have to spend hours in make-up every week to play someone in hr early fifties which also seems unlikely to fly for a CW central character.
