Arrow: 20 Things That Make No Sense About Felicity And Oliver’s Relationship
In Next of Kin, the latest episode of Arrow, Oliver Queen and his on-again, off- again love interest Felicity Smoak got back together. The strong and silent type is nice, but a good relationship can't be all brood and brawn. Felicity brings out another side of Oliver, usually with a. The couple may not have been paired together in DC's original Green Arrow comics (instead Oliver/Green Arrow is often paired with Dinah.
They were headed for a romance, except they weren't. In the second season premiere, Kara abruptly decided to focus on being a superhero and kicked James to the curb.

Finagling relationships is inevitable on a TV show with a relatively small cast, and Arrow is no exception. With the exception of only a couple of the characters, everyone has dated everyone else on that show. One of the most annoying relationships was one that existed at the outset of Arrow.

However, for the superhero, keeping such a big secret can be a big strain, especially when it comes to romantic relationships. One of the most annoying relationships Barry had was with Linda Park.
