Oliver Queen and Felicity Smoak Are Totally Gonna Bang, and Here's How We Know

Arrow is the best CW show on the current line-up. No, it's actually one of the network's top five series of all time. That's not a statistical fact, so don't quote that. Arrow just feels that awesome. If you haven't seen it, here's a breakdown: Stephen Amell plays Oliver Queen, a marooned billionaire playboy who returns from a hostile island a changed man. Back in Starling City he vows to avenge his father's death and fight crime and corruption as the masked vigilante, Green Arrow. Yes, that Green Arrow from the DC Comics universe.

Like any rich, handsome hero, Queen's already checked off a plethora of love interests: his first love Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy), her sister Sarah Lance/Black Canary (Caity Lotz), Helena Bertinelli/the Huntress (Jessica De Gouw), and Detective McKenna Hall (Janina Gavankar). But like any good romance, it's the "unlikely" lady that fans are shipping him with most: Queen's IT Girl and Arrow's pro hacker, Felicity Smoak, played by Emily Bett Rickards.

Google the term Olicity and you'll find Tumblr page upon Tumblr page dedicated to the will-they-or-wont-they couple. The thirst is real for them to be together. The producers know this, and they're fucking with the fanbase for it (even going so far as to bring in The Flash to romance Felicity). Just take a look: Oliver Queen and Felicity Smoak are totally gonna bang, and here's how we know.

Oliver and Laurel Lance have the rapport of a moose and a pear. Oliver and Sarah Lance would just be a messed up situation all around. Oliver and [insert this week's jumpoff here] have no chance. Which means...

But their most telling moments lie in her Freudian slips.

And she makes a lot of Freudian slips.

So much that you're conflicted between feeling turned on and feeling second-hand embarrassment.

I mean, COME ON...

Add that to the fact that they bicker like a scene out of His Girl Friday

And have got that reluctant pre-"Jess and Nick" on New Girl kind of appreciation of each other.

You've got the whole fanbase fangirling for them to be together.

Even Larry King.
