Last week I caught up on Arrow and watched episodes 13 – 15 of season three; in other words the epic love story of Oliver and Thea. OMG these episodes, THE FEELS.
If you have been like me and a little discouraged with the show lately, and even contemplated not watching anymore (or have stopped watching), I strongly suggest at least watching these episodes. These episodes remind me of why I fell in love with the show Arrow and Oliver and Thea back in season one.
Thank you show writers for bringing the awesomeness of this show back. Cause it was a snooze fest for a while.
Without giving too much away, a lot goes down in these episodes between Oliver and Thea (unfortunately no sex so lets just get that right out of the way.) A major secret gets revealed, there is a lot of hugging, they go on a couples retreat in the woods…Need I say more?
As is always the case for Oliver, when he is talking to Thea (if you didn’t know they were siblings) you would swear she was his lover. Everything Oliver does (and really has always done) is for Thea, but especially in these episodes. They even train together as one, LOL!
There is also flashback scenes when everyone thought Oliver was dead. He is in Starling City and spies peeping Tom style on Thea. He probably even went up to her room and kissed her goodnight (pushing it?)
What did you think of the episodes?
For a heck of a lot more Oliver and Thea and some of the most memorable scenes from these episodes visit my Arrow tag on the main blog here.
What’s up with writers writing siblings like a couple on the CW?
Arrow is one of the reasons I started an incestuous blog a year or two ago. In season one of Arrow, Oliver & Thea had WAY too much sexual chemistry to be related. They seemed to have toned it down in season two though, much to my dismay and other queencest shippers.
Although there is a big age gap between Oliver and Thea, she seems wise beyond her years. Probably because she has had to grow up quickly after dealing with the death of their father and then thinking she had lost her brother. In the first season she tries to cover up her emotions by turning to drugs, even though she seemed like a strong person. Oliver is kind of like a father to Thea, because he is constantly trying to protect her. He even hides his identity from her, a lie that is constantly tearing Oliver apart, but time will tell if it pushed Thea away too. Keeping a secret like that from the person you love most in the world can’t be easy.
In my most recent analysis I attempt to explain The Leftovers TV show and the amazing episode that was episode 9 that was literally filled with electricity between brother and sister Tommy and Jill. Contains spoilers.
“We would absolutely love to make a circuit, wouldn’t we.”
As you can probably see by all the posts, I have been on a bit of The Leftovers bender lately. But I can’t help it, the show is filled with so many shipable pairings and even twin brothers! And the thing is you could see any of these pairings actually becoming canon since it is a show where anything can happen. Remember this?
Then episode 9 happened, aptly titled “The Garveys at their Best,” and the writers couldn’t have been more right! This one finally reunited the brother and sister pairing for the first time all season and the sparks flew!…Literally!
