There’s nothing like a good ship to remind us of the power of love, even if we’re crying alone into a pint of Ben and Jerry’s. Case-in-point: Arrow’s Olicity. Oliver and Felicity may have danced around their intense feelings for one another for almost three years before making things official, but when it happened, our worlds seemed to stop. So much so, that we couldn’t help but bask in the glory of their romance and lay down the MTV Fandom Award’s Ship of the Year title at their feet. Twice.
That’s right, Olicity just won Ship of the Year for the second year in a row. Thursday night at San Diego’s Petco Park, actor Stephen Amell took to the stage to accept Fandom's sexiest award for the on-screen pair. True, the couple left things rocky at the end of season 4, compelling us to shut out the world and channel our angsty feelings on Tumblr, but that doesn’t mean it’s over. It can’t be over, right? No, it’s totally not over.
Luckily for us, we won’t have to wait long to find out. Season 5 of Arrow is set to premiere on October 5 2016, with promises of more Green Arrow, more Star City badassery, and one hell of an epic superhero crossover. Featuring all of Greg Berlanti’s creations, Arrow’s world is set to collide with that of The Flash, Supergirl, and D.C’s Legends of Tomorrow. No word on what this collaboration will look like yet, but according to Stephen Amell, we shouldn’t expect a DC heroes musical.
Dreams I never knew I had, dashed in an instant.
As for Oliver and Felicity, they may be in romantic purgatory, but we’re still excited to see what their next chapter is. We’re rooting for you, Olicity. You are now, and forever will be, end goals.
