The second season finale of Arrow was arguably one of the best episodes of television we’ve seen in a while, and here’s the scene that would’ve made it even crazier.
Spoilers ahead for the season-two finale of Arrow, as well as some early parts of season three!
As fans already know, the potential relationship between Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) started as a subtle triangle corner and has blossomed into the central relationship of the series. The writers never intended Felicity to become Oliver’s leading lady (it’s typically been Laurel in the comics, and that’s what the writers had originally planned here).
But the heart wants what the heart wants. The writers have embraced the fan-favorite relationship between the two, and it played out in a very big way during the season-two finale, wherein Oliver told Felicity she was the one he really loved — though the scene also doubled as a fakeout to set a trap for Deathstroke (it's complicated).
The scene in question is an absolute tearjerker, and is one of the best, most emotional moments the show has produced to date. Turns out it was supposed to be a whole lot more emotional. Though Oliver and Felicity eventually do share a kiss (or two) later down the line, the moment originally came in the season-two finale — and here’s the lip lock to prove it.
Producer Marc Guggenheim released the deleted scene below after fans on Tumblr got his silly request hashtag “trollenheim show us olicity kiss 2×23” trending on the service. Well played, Olicity fans.
Do you think this scene should’ve been included? How do you think the Oliver/Felicity story will play out?
