The Complicated Love Life Of Oliver Queen – Season 2 CW’s Arrow

By Phjoshua @thereviewsarein

Arrow Header BannerSeason 2 of Arrow is now deeply under way and the question of who Ollie is going to end up with is still unanswered. In fact, it’s even more complicated than it was in season 1.

In February I wrote the 1st edition of this post and had 4 options listed: Laurel Lance, Felicity Smoke, Helena Bertinelli and McKenna Hall. In season 2 we seem to have lost Helena and McKenna… but we’ve added 2 new love interest possibilities.

But before we get to them, let’s revisit our holdovers.

Oliver and Laurel:

Ollie and Laurel have been the star-crossed lovers presented to us since the beginning of the series. He loved her, he wronged her, he fought to get back from the island because he missed her. Hell, he risked everything by calling her from that com tower in season 1.

But now Laurel is broken. Losing Tommy and blaming herself has taken her to a dark place. The drinking, the meds, the depression… it’s not good. There is a chance the Ollie thinks he can save her. That he still loves her (I believe he does), but I’m not sure that they are meant to be the couple that we once thought they were going to be.

I don’t really think that this is a couple that will work out long term.

But they could end up in a fling again before this is all said and done.

Oliver and Felicity:

Felicity’s feelings for Ollie are becoming more and more transparent with every episode. It’s at the point now where Oliver has had to tell her that he can’t be with anyone he cares about because of the danger that would come with that.

However, the more time they spend together, the more she helps him and learns him and supports him emotionally and outside of the “Arrow Cave” the more chance there is that these 2 end up in love.

I know that there is a lot of support for this couple in the fan community, but I’m not sure that it’s going to happen – even as a fling.

I do think that there’s a chance that we’re going to see a really passionate kiss between the Ollie and Felicity, probably during a mission and the reaction on her face will show the deep, deep feelings that she has for him. And then it will change when she realizes that it wasn’t real… or that it doesn’t mean she’s going to get what she really hopes for.

And now the newcomers…
Oliver and Isabel Rochev:

Isabel is very much Ollie’s match in female form. She’s admitted as much. She’s a little bit broken on the inside. She has trouble with feelings and interpersonal relationships so she gets way into her work.

That ability to be disconnected from “real life” might be what leads to more hook-ups as this season moves on. It might even lead to some sort of pseudo relationship – but I wouldn’t really count on that.

Ms. Rochev probably isn’t going anywhere any time soon. And she is likely to get nosy.

This could end badly.

Oliver and Sara Lance:

Ollie and Sara - Arrow Season 2

The Green Arrow story has Oliver and The Black Canary together… and apart and together. It’s a messy, complicated relationship. Kind of like Ollie and Sara.

The issue with their relationship on this show is Laurel. That’s a new wrinkle in the lore. It’s also the reason that I don’t think that Oliver and Sara will be together.

Unless Laurel leaves.

And there’s the rub.

Ollie and Sara probably belong together. They understand each other. They have a unique history. They can take care of each other. They might even be able to save each other from their demons.

For the sake of the story and the legend and DC’s Green Arrow – I hope these 2 end up together some day.

Just don’t expect it to happen in season 2.
