I could be so onboard with the Ray stuff if they'd just fucking dial it back. But to me it read (unintentionally on their part but I can't get away from 8 years of working in domestic violence) like he was putting what he wanted above her telling him no. He sent her flowers which does not show professional interest to me, or at least not strictly, he's basically being a "Nice Guy." And then when she starts crying, instead of just saying, Oh man. I'm sorry. Go do your thing. He does the creepy, I know better than you, you're not really mad at ME, you're mad at this other thing and it'll get better. speech which just. Nope.

Nope, nope, nope.

Yeah, she was absolutely mad at all sorts of other things, but it was framed as her only choices being, she's mad at him OR she's mad at Sara dying. As if she couldn't be mad at both.

He's the kind of charming that my dad was. Which isn't a compliment. At all. He's basically the kind of charming that the princes in Into the Woods are. Also not a compliment.

And it's completely unintentional on the part of the writers. Completely. Which for me is a whole other world of bad. And since they've pulled all this other shit, I'm giving no leeway on this issue. Which is going to make the Felicity parts of the episodes not nearly as awesome as I want them to be for me. Bummer.

And now I've said my peace and will let you go on digging the dude. ;)

Oh man. Thea and Oliver back together with her hating him? It's going to give some amazing angst and heart break, yes. And despite Willa not being my fav actor on the show (or Barrowman for that matter and she's learning from him how to be villain-y. yay.) the way she and Amell spark off each other has always, from that first hug in the entry way of the mansion, been one of the highlights of the show for me. They give great sibling. I'm looking forward to them giving great angst and anger.
