I can’t be the only one that sees that really heavy, besotted, beguiled, ‘I’m down with this one for life' look in his eyes when he watches Felicity in both of these very mirroed, yet distinct scenes. He's letting her believe in her own scenario about what happened in the first one, and in the second, it's not even an option in his head to let her go on for one more second with the notion that he doesn't love her with the blazing vehemence of a million suns.
HE CAN’T LIVE ANY MORE LIES WHEN IT COMES TO HER. I AM SO HAPPY RIGHT NOW.
I CAN’T BE THE ONLY ONE WHO KNOWS WITHOUT A SHADOW OF A DOUBT THAT ENDGAME IS UPON US, RIGHT?????
(*not my gifs, I pinch off of those who are more talented than I*)
Sorry - need to get this down because it won’t leave my brain alone.
Oliver: I wish that things were different. I wish that for one night, I could be someone else. Not Oliver Queen. Just some…normal guy.
Felicity: Not someone who has to go save the city? (beat) What would you do?
Oliver (smiles slightly): I’d kiss you.
