Stephen Amell Says Arrow Has Earned A Slow Burn On Olicity

There is a word that seems to make Arrow fans either smile or cringe… Olicity. The ship name for Oliver and Felicity. Some love the pairing, others hate it and some are old school and think Green Arrow and Black Canary have to be together… if the show can just decide on who the Black Canary is. Those in the pro Oliver / Felicity camp have been waiting (not sure if the word patiently quite applies) for something to happen to put them back on the path to being together… not counting Oliver killing Felicity’s boyfriend. Actor Stephen Amell told EW.com that he’s aware of what some fans are wanting:

Being in the fifth season of the show, we can let things burn slowly. I know that a lot of people who have been watching the show have been getting impatient is one word, upset is another, hopeless is the strongest way to put it, but at the same time, it’s our fifth season, we can take our time with things. Oliver and Felicity, whatever happened between them in between our fourth and our fifth season, and the reason that they have been where they are right now throughout the course of the season, we get a chance to explain it.

Arrow returns April 26th on the CW.
