24 Times Olicity Almost Happened On 'Arrow' And Made You Lose Your Mind

May they never not make out again.

If "Mirakuru" is the one word from "Arrow" we hope to never hear again, then "Olicity" is its complete and total opposite. The term refers to the fan-favorite and now super-official attraction between Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell), professional superhero and sexiest-man-alive-while-he-was-still-alive, and his super-smart sidekick and close companion Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards).

More and more with each passing episode, the writers of "Arrow" have embraced the fan-dubbed Olicity, to the point that we've seen Oliver declare his love for Felicity at least two times — and on at least one of those occasions, he totally meant it!

But forces continue to conspire to keep one of the hottest TV couples in the history of hot TV couples from ever really getting off the ground — even though they've come really, really close.

Join us for a stroll down memory lane, looking back on the all times that Olicity almost happened, and some of the times it actually happened, on "Arrow."
