If Arrow fans know one thing, it's that Olicity love is not taken lightly. During the painstaking 3 season wait for Oliver Queen and Felicity Smoak to do the damn thing, there were many tense, electric moments shared between the pair. Sure, the love is obviously mutual; however reluctant Oliver may have been about it at first. That being said, I think it’s safe to say Felicity’s feelings have always been pretty clear, as evidenced by her infamous look of longing directed towards the Arrow’s debonair alter ego. A look of such reverent love and adoration isn’t shown often or lightly, which is why I can only think of one other love that we’ve experienced in our lives that evoke the same type of all-encompassing emotion from within our souls. And that love is food.
Sure, Oliver is handsome, brave, selfless, strong, can effortlessly climb up a salmon ladder like a cat to a tree, and is also pretty apt at saving a city. But, on the other hand, food is delicious. So, yeah, Felicity, we totally get what it’s like to be in love with someone, or something, extraordinary. And we also get that sometimes, that love does not come easily.
Here are 9 times Felicity’s looks of longing for Oliver were basically exactly how you’ve always felt about food:
