(ugh can I pls join you in the ‘Roy Haters United’ corner?) but to talk about F&L - they did say they’d get ~stuff together that’s not catty bs? but I’m not sure how much I trust them to deliver something that’s /actually/ good?

Yes, please, welcome to the club. I’m sure we’re not the only two that hate him lol. Re: Felicity & Laurel good stuff, when I see it I’ll believe it. Don’t want to get my hopes up. I was gonna give up on the show, and watch it in bulk after the mid season finale, but with the Felicity back-story promise, I’m gonna give it another chance. Hoping good things for Laurel too.

(idk I think you’re the only one who wants to trash-talk Roy with me?) Yeah, I’m actually pretty optimistic about Laurel this season, oddly or not? Like, aside from Ted Grant coming in, that new promo shows her inflicting some bodily harm on what we’re pretty sure is the shady dude from 1x02, which is totally a step towards more ~vigilante-y methods for her, and I’m here for that? aaaand I saw this thing floating around from this weekend’s Dragon Con about how Katie’s doing some of her own stunts, so that sounds promising too. like my only gripe so far is that they evidently killed off Kate Spencer so Laurel could be DA which is all sorts of gross, but also a rant for a different post.

I’m actually more nervous about Felicity, I think? The spoilers so far about her backstory are looking pretty good, but yeah I’m always gonna angst about the writers not delivering. And about her and Laurel specifically, I’m not even sure what the execs said exactly on the matter, but dude, if Laurel’s closer to Team Arrow now, how cool would it be if she and Felicity went off and did like a bad guy takedown together??? just the two of them? that’s my dream tbh.

I don’t know, there has to be more of us. Like besides comics fans that can’t see past him being Arsenal, what does Roy bring to the table? Nada. He’s no longer super-strong, he’s not a great fighter, he was a crap archer (until the coma made him a good one), he’s a whiny baby… I mean I could go on all day.

And can I just day (I’m about to be real petty), he looks terrible in red. LOL

I’m worried for Felicity too, because these writers don’t put much into their women. However, I’m more concerned for Laurel. Yeah she’s beating the guy in the hospital, & last year in the premier she took down one of the gun men… then nothing. I’m not saying we won’t see her train or fight, I just don’t trust them to have a destination for her. I mean, it’s season 3 and she’s still in the same place as the pilot, just with way more pain, emotional abuse, and a drinking problem. I hope they stop shitting on her and put her on positive path.

I am all for those two teaming up. Can we please have an episode where Oliver is knocked out, Diggle is busy somewhere else, Roy is dead… okay out of town, & Felicity & Laurel have to take care of things on their own. We’ll dream together.

and then all he hallucinated Thea saying while he was high on Mirakuru was how ‘he should punish her, she deserves to be punished’ like ??? wtf you giant creep why are your anger fantasies turned towards Thea??? yeah the Mirakuru brings out your anger and shit but you had Slade who was the biggest pile of sexism to ever exist in human form and his hallucinations!Shado, as a personification of his anger, always turned that desire to hurt towards others, which were the ones he /wanted/ to hurt (re: mostly Oliver) so like, Roy wtf why do you wanna hurt Thea?? I’m supposed to be here for this shit ~love you have for her?? hahha nope fuckity bye dude i hope your dick falls off

anyway. I totally get why you’d be more concerned for Laurel bc dear god their track record with her is fucking terrible, and I feel like I should be more concerned too but…idk, I think it’s because I do get the feeling they’ve decided what her thing’s gonna be now and they can actually do stuff with it. I mean, last season, by their own admission, they didn’t really know what to do with her a lot of the time so it ended up being a fucking mess. they did say this time around, that they do have a destination n mind for her (and Felicity) by the end of the season - but yeah, how much can we trust that? and like, about her beating the dudes in 2x01 vs. beating the dude in 3x01 - context is gonna be relevant here? because in 2x01 it was self-defense basically, they were shooting up the place, but in 3x01 I’m holding out hope that she’s doing this as part of a tactic, to get what she wants (maybe a confession, intel, idk). so like, the hypothetical premeditation behind her actions in 3x01 is gonna make a difference here. but yeah omg they did drop a fuckton of shit on her - which was probably like, her ‘island’ or w/e (I have issues with the concept of people needing an ‘island’ to even consider doing heroics but again, that’s a rant for a different post). I do hope they don’t forget that they did make her an alcoholic tho? They did do a decent job keeping it up in later S2, with her going to AA meetings and even mentioned how she could really use one in the finale - so I hope they don’t consider that a closed chapter or something. not just because being a recovering addict isn’t like curing the flu or something, but also because having Black Canary also be a recovering alcoholic would definitely be something I could get behind.

oh and the F&L team-up. Oliver’s knocked out, sure, Diggle is…occupied, Roy’s getting his ass handed to him by Thea for being a dipshit, Sara and Nyssa took a romantic vacay bc fuck, they need their romantic assassins vacay, so Laurel’s like “oh ok a massive crime organization is threatening to overtake the city? nbd we can handle this”. And they do, because they’re badass like that.
