Oliver Queen is having a rough time of it at the end of “Arrow” Season 2. He keeps losing to Slade Wilson, his mother is dead, and half of Team Arrow is currently AWOL or in a snake-venom coma. His despair in this clip from “City of Blood” is therefore perhaps forgivable.
He still needs to buck up though, as can be seen in the video.
Other than Oliver being sad, there are a few important things to note as he is consoled and kind of heartened by his original teammates.
1. Felicity is from Las Vegas and is the daughter of a cocktail waitress.
2. Las Vegas is roughly 1000 miles from Las Vegas.
3. Diggle is really good at staying quiet and unnoticed until he has something important to say.
4. Diggle is also really good at not rolling his eyes when Oliver is being maudlin.
Will Felicity and Diggle be able to convince Oliver that it’s worth it to continue to fight? Will Diggle have to slap some sense into the boy? Can Oliver and Felicity get even a millimeter closer together and still have it be platonic?
