LOL, basically. Oh, Oliver. So basically Oliver Queen and Logan Echolls should have a salmon-ladder off (and/or a pushup competition) and then compare their magic numbers. Heh. I wonder if Oliver is canonically gifted as well? ;)
(NOTE: has anyone written this absurd crossover yet? Veronica travels to nearby Starling City to help track down the Hood? Logan goes with her to… provide abs and snark? Logan has a conversation with Felicity about military-grade explosives? SOMEBODY MAKE ME STOP TALKING NOW.)

Yeeeeah. What struck me watching S1 in a big jumbled marathon the way I did was that the late season Oliver/Laurel stuff seemed like one of those HIMYM-like “WELL, BUT THIS IS THE PLAN AND YOU DON’T DEVIATE FROM THE PLAN”-type situations. They knew the major beats of Oliver/Laurel and kept going with them, even as on screen there wasn’t (much? any?) real chemistry between them.
OTOH, they adjusted to Felicity’s awesomeness by moving her from bit part to series regular, so maybe they thought there was a persuasive Laurel/Oliver thing?
The other thing that bothers the hell out of me is the partner swapping* amongst Oliver, Laurel, Tommy, and Sara. Like… there are other people in Starling city, y’all. Try match.com or something. And also don’t try to sell me on Tommy’s changed ways and his true love for Laurel and then just have Laurel be like, “oh, Oliver still/again? Sure!” Because… what are you doing, writers??
Um… I have a lot of feelings about this, I guess.
*YES, I realize that a massive Logan/Veronica shipper has a BIG OLD GLASS HOUSE of partner-swapping from which to throw stones, but that honestly bothers me a little about V/D and L/L turning to V/L. ESPECIALLY THE BIG DUNCAN/VERONICA RETREAD IN S2. UGH.
