15 Amazing Olicity Moments that Made You Fall in Love
(In Chronological Order of Arrow Seasons)
#1 Nope….Nothing Platonic Here
You just know Oliver is imagining his own “very platonic circumstances.” This Olicity moment was sizzling!
#2 She’s the Only Choice….Every Time
There are a million and one delicious Olicity moments in Season 2. Normally, that would make it hard to choose. However, my mind immediately went to three specific moments. First, this moment here, after Oliver kills the Count to save Felicity. His reassurance, the way he reaches out to touch her, and her expression…..a perfect moment capturing all the unsaid emotions.
#3 JUST KISS HER
There was so much emotion in this scene. Grief, fear, and so much angst! They stood so close to each other, neither saying what we know they want to say. The tension between Oliver and Felicity was off the charts. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I yelled, “Just kiss her already!”
#4 Neither of You Fooled Us
Yes, I know….there are so many other Olicity moments before this one that are….well, more Olicity. But this conversation just gutted me. Felicity puts everything out in the open. Oliver (gasp!) does, too. In his own way. It’s his expression, though, that really sells this moment. The look in his eyes and that smile is enough for Felicity (and the audience) to know that he meant it.
#5 Flirty Flirts
I love when Oliver and Felicity get their flirt on! Apparently, Diggle and Roy do, too!
#6 Heartbreaking First Kiss
Oh, the angst in this moment. This first kiss was perfection. From the tender way Oliver holds Felicity, do the way they linger over the other. While heartbreaking, it remains one of the most romantic first kisses.
#7 A Call Back to Coffee and a Heart-to-Heart
Yes, I could have gone with the obvious scene of Oliver, Felicity, candles…..but I chose this Olicity moment because of how starkly honest it is. Both are metaphorically stripped bare, painfully vulnerable to the other. It’s a perfect Olicity moment.
#8 Affectionate and Adorable Olicity
These two are sooooo cute!
Some of the best Olicity moments are during times of extreme danger and stress. These two manage to create a bubble of serenity around themselves and share extraordinary moments.
#10 Always Willing to Sacrifice for the Other
There is so much to love about this moment between Oliver and Felicity. I love the push and pull as they passionately argue their side. I especially love that no matter how far apart they grow, they are still in sync with each other.
#11 The Keys to His Heart
So, it’s really a key to his apartment. But, I love Oliver is the one taking this step. He’s bringing their relationship into the open. It’s a new side to Oliver and clearly, Felicity approves!
#12 I Do
Ah, the moment so many Olicity fans were waiting for! Moreover, in a way that is the epitome of Oliver and Felicity!
#13 Domestic Olicity
I will forever love how flirty they are with each other!
#14 Back In Each Other’s Arms
This reunion was so heartbreaking. Every episode before this was simply a lead up to this moment right here. It was emotional and so fragile!
#15 And Baby Makes Four
Oh, what a sweet way to begin wrapping up Oliver and Felicity’s story. The perfect culmination of Olicity and their epic romance.
BONUS: Farewell, My Love
I’m not crying, you are.
