Two days later and we're still not over Arrow's finale.
You see,'twas an emotional roller coaster for us Olicity fans, who were dealt two major moments between Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) in the CW hit's season two finale: First, Oliver told Felicity he loved her and we squealed with delight. But then, it was revealed it was all an act to finally get the upper hand on Slade (Manu Bennett). To say we we felt toyed with was an understatement. (A lot of wine was consumed, we won't lie.)
Of course, this could mean only one thing: we needed to harass Stephen Amell on the red carpet at the CW's Upfront presentation in order to yell at him and get scoop on what's ahead for the fan favorite pairing...
And good news, Olicity fans: Amell isn't so sure that Ollie's "ILY" was just an act. "I don't know that it was all a ruse. I think that they got down what they needed to get done," he told us. "And I think that some of the things he said earlier in the season stayed true." (Like the fact that he can't be with someone he could truly care about because of what he does. Yes, we asked him to specify.)
And Emily Bett Rickards also has some doubts about Oliver's "I love you" being all for show.
"I think he could have meant it. I think it was honest, but I think that in the time-frame of what was happening, obviously it couldn't be real because the city was dying, for one," she explained. "But I think he as surprised with how much he meant it. I mean, I can't speak for Oliver, but from Felicity's point of view, it was, 'You almost had me believing it. Poke-poke, did you mean it?'

Aside from the major finale feelings between Olicity, another game-changer that went down in the finale was a cured Roy Harper (Colton Haynes) finally getting to put on a mask and do some serious fighting. Huzzah! And yes, fans can expect to see Roy get his very own superhero suit next season. Double huzzah!
"Basically, we have had a few fittings for a full suit and there will probably be some hints of that coming soon," Haynes hinted, before coyly teasing, "If I had tried the suit on, hypothetically if I had, it probably has red leather and is probably kind of tight." (God bless the CW, right?!)
