We cannot doubt the depth of her feelings because Felicity will have other love interests in S3. Those love interests exist not because Felicity doesn’t love Oliver. They exist because Felicity believes she can’t HAVE Oliver. She’s simply trying to move with her life, with a severely broken heart, as best she can. And Oliver is trying to let her go. The question is…will Felicity be able to move on? Should she? That’s the journey. That’s the struggle. This season isn’t about Felicity deciding if she loves Oliver. Felicity knows she loves Oliver. It’s about Felicity deciding IF LOVE IS ENOUGH.
I just want to see Felicity sitting on her couch in her apartment. Making a cake or something – that’s what I want her to do. I like the boring shit like seeing her taking off her earrings. We always see Felicity done.
