15 Reasons Why Olicity From ‘Arrow’ Is the Best Couple on TV

Olicity forever! Scroll through Tumblr and you’ll see just about every Arrow fan shipping Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) and Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards). The couple may not have been paired together in DC’s original Green Arrow comics (instead Oliver/Green Arrow is often paired with Dinah Laurel Lance/Black Canary), but you would never guess that. Amell’s chemistry with Rickards makes Olicity one of the most entertaining and realistic relationships in recent years.

1. They can’t stay away from each other.

Specifically, Felicity will not let her romantic relationship define her. Felicity recognized how she wasn’t able to save a friend’s life because she was so consumed by her relationship with Oliver. Neither of them is whipped!

13. But all of the fighting is worth it when we see them make up!
