It wasn’t so much the fans were pushing necessarily for them. I think when we first saw Emily on camera, and when the fans got their first look at her there was so much like ‘who the hell is that?’,’who’s that girl?’ ‘she’s interesting!’ and, you know, I think that certainly the fan reaction and Emily’s performance as Felicity galvanized all of us that ‘oh, wait a minute, the way that we had envisioned the show this could be an interesting new dynamic’ especially because of, you know, the humor that she brings to the part. As always with these things there’s room to breathe.

We’re certainly interested in what the fans say, but it always feels right. It’s always felt like the next part of the thing, and so far with most of the decisions we’ve made, even though they may have been very difficult decisions, whether it was killing Tommy or killing Moira, or pushing some relationships forward and other relationships onto the back burner, we just do what feels right. But as always, hopefully with success we don’t have to rush everything. Some things are on a slow burn on purpose even though that might displease some members of the fandom, so we’ll see.

Andrew Kreisburg on whether Olicity is fanpandering.

I think I got this mostly right, so please forgive me if I misheard something. I swear I listened to it 3 more times after writing it out to make sure.

Well, I think what’s fun about the season premiere is you do get to see him be honest and truthful with her, for both good and bad. I think he’s finally revealing some secrets she didn’t know, and that’s… her reaction to those secrets is interesting. Look, I think they’re in love with each other, and when you’re in love with someone, it’s very hard for the person you love to tell you something that’s going to make you fall out of love with them instantaneously, but that emotionally intimacy deepens their relationship. Deepens their connection.

Marc Guggenheim, answering TV Fanatic’s question (at 2014 San Diego Comic Con), “Will we see Oliver have a challenge in being truthful and honest with her, or is that part of the attraction?  That he can be honest and truthful with her?”

Enjoy these. None of these are jump scares, don’t worry. 
DARK SHADOW FIGURE SOBBING: A person walks into a room and sees a dark shadow figure sitting on the floor with it’s head in it’s lab, he promptly walks out and walks back in a couple minutes later. What he sees next, is something you’re going to have to watch to figure out. 
DEMON HANDS: Hands, hundreds of them growing out of walls. It looks like a scene straight out of Grave Encounters
THE CAT WITH HANDS:  Don’t watch this at midnight is all I’m telling you
I HAVE THE BODY OF A PIG: Some paranormal investigators found some startling EVP. The end of this video will increase the creepiness. 
BOY ATTACKED BY GHOST: Towards the end where something attempts to drag him by the leg *shivers*
FALLEN ANGEL: Two men find a trail of feathers and find an emancipated humanoid figure behind the bushes
ELISA LAM: You probably have heard about this case, but the body of this girl was found in the hotel’s water tank not too long after this. Do you see the strange hand motions she’s making? And who on earth is she talking to?
GHOST SCREAMING IN A HAUNTED HOTEL: Sounds of screaming coming from an empty room
NO THROUGH ROAD: A bunch of boys explore a seemingly endless road, they find a few bunny corpses along the road
POSSESSION AT A STORE: Look at the glass door, right when he hits the floor. You can see the reflection of something coming out of his body.

Of the 512 Best Picture nominees in Oscar history, only eleven were directed or co-directed by women. Only four women have been nominated for Best Director in 86 years. The first was Lina Wertmüller for Seven Beauties (1976); her film was not nominated for Best Picture. The first three women to have their films nominated for Best Picture - Randa Haines for Children of a Lesser God (1986), Penny Marshall for Awakenings (1990) and Barbra Streisand for The Prince of Tides (1991) - were not nominated for Best Director. The first film directed by a woman to be nominated for Best Picture *and* Best Director was The Piano (1993), directed by Jane Campion. It would take another ten years for a film directed by a woman to be nominated again - Lost In Translation (2003) by Sofia Coppola, who was also the youngest woman to direct a nominated film (she was 32 at the time). The first - and so far only - woman to win the Best Director award is Kathryn Bigelow for The Hurt Locker (2009). She is also the only female director to have two films be nominated for Best Picture, the second being Zero Dark Thirty (2012).  One woman - Valerie Faris - has co-directed (with Jonathan Dayton) a film to a Best Picture nomination, for Little Miss Sunshine (2006). Lone Scherfig is the first - and so far only - European woman to direct a film nominated for Best Picture, for An Education (2009). The only LGBTQ woman to direct a film nominated for Best Picture is Lisa Cholodenko for The Kids Are All Right (2010). Debra Granik was nominated for her screenplay, but not for her work as director for Best Picture nominee Winter’s Bone (2010). In the 86 years of Oscar history, there have only been two years when multiple films directed by women were nominated for Best Picture: 2009 and 2010.

[Felicity and Oliver are going on a date in the season premiere. How do you avoid the tv trope that a hero can’t be with the woman he loves just because of his duty?

When you see the premiere and you see how things shake out, you’ll come to a very sympathetic understanding of both of their positions. The premiere last year was a microcosm of what was happening for the whole year. In the same way that the premiere of last season was really about Oliver struggling with whether or not he should be the Arrow, in this season premiere it’s, “Can I have everything I want?” that quest is going to take up his entire year, and hers. - Andrew Kreisberg

'We saw Felicity going out on a date with Oliver, which made everyone's hearts flutter. I can assume everything goes perfect on the date too, right?' (x)

@ 2:30: THERE’S ONLY ONE LADY IN OLIVER’S LIFE. JUST ONE. FELICITY. BYE YA’LL.


No, I… The ship has sailed on those romances. I don’t think we’ll ever see Oliver/Sara or Oliver/Laurel together again. I mean, they’ll be together, but not together together. They’ll be teammates, but no… We discovered in the pilot the way Oliver feels about Felicity, so because of that if we introduce random love interest , we kind undersell what we’re doing in the premiere.

apparently e.l. james called former child star mara wilson (matilda) a “sad fuck” for critiquing the 50shades books a while ago and now there’s a feud. i love it.

this gives me hope.

if there is one person on the planet you should trust when it comes to books it’s Matilda
