Anonymous said: So the images of felicity in the peach dress are from arrow season 3 ep 2. Yet Oliver and Felicity still looked flirty in that first promo when she was walking away in that dress and looked back and smiled at him. I'm so confused, cos that would be after the explosion.. it just doesn't make any sense to me? what do you think?
Nope. I’m 99% sure peach dress is from 3x1. It’s part of the released promotional stills for 3x1. It has a halter look from the front, but it’s a party in the back! Also the dress looks sort of pinkish in the photos, so the stills are deceiving, but if you watch the High Speed chase promo, it’s definitely the coral/peach dress in 3x1.
Let the flirty commence!
I know someone pulled a photo of that dress front & back, I just can’t find it.
Guys this is the Full Dress this photo taken on emily’s birthday so i think they shot this scene on her birthday there is a pic with stephen to same dress
Okie dokie. I’m officially calling this The Case of the Mystery Felicity Smoak Dress. Let’s Nancy Drew this shit.
So we have this shot in the promo that was released at Comic Con.
Then we have this image released on TVLine that specifically states that it’s from 3x2 - When I’m wrong. I’m wrong. And I say I’m wrong. So I was wrong. Sorry! Cool? Cool.
And finally we have this shot from the high speed chase promo:
So obviously the shots from the high speed chase promo and the comic con promo are the same dress because the back is the same. The question is…are the stills from 3x02 the same dress as the promos? btw…we’ve all totally entered crazyville analyzing a DRESS this much and I fucking love you all for it. Olicity fandom is the shit.
Let’s lay out the scenarios.
1. They are the same dress. Which means that the Comic Con clips of Oliver smiling as Felicity walks away are from 3x02, supported by TVLine’s stills. This could mean a couple things
- A) They are on good terms post date break up. Felicity just said something that made Oliver smile. Completely innocent. (yeah…even I don’t believe that as I type it. That smile of Oliver’s is anything but innocent)
- B) They DON’T break up in 3x01 and perhaps that comes later…potentially in 3x03 prompting Felicity to visit Central City in 3x04
- C) They DO break up in 3x01 but are still getting their flirt on since they know they are both madly in love with one another, regardless if they are together or not.
2. It’s not the same dress. Just two dresses that look VERY similar. This is extremely plausible. As I look at the cut of the dress in the stills for 3x02, the halter straps hug EBR closer to the neck than the promo dress. The still dress also has skinnier straps versus the promo dress. The promo dress splits into a V around the neck in the back. The still dress looks like the circular collar continues in the back, leading me to believe there are no cut outs in the back and it’s as plain in the back as in the front.
Another reason it could be a different dress? Apparently EBR was still filming 3x02 when the promo for Comic Con aired. That’s why she was late to Comic Con. Which means, they only had scenes for 3x01 shot, cut & edited. I would be extremely surprised it they were able to include scenes from 3x02 into the Comic Con promo BEFORE the episode finished filming. Is it possible? Absolutely. Perhaps the scenes with the still dress were simply done and they could include them in the promo. But I’m skeptical.
Okay. Verdict time. I’m going with two options. My first instinct - Option 2. I think they are two different dresses with similar colors. It’s possible. Coral is huge right now. Plus that just makes the most damn sense plot wise.
However…it is EXTREMELY plausible they are the same dress. In that case, to answer Anon’s question, I’m going with Option 1C. I still say they break up in 3x01, but Oliver will have told Felicity how he feels. Regardless of whether they are together or not, when you are in love…you are in love. It leads to cuteness and flirting. Perhaps 3x01 doesn’t end on as bad of terms as I anticipate. More sadness than anger. Anger may be coming later…perhaps in 3x03. Hence, the flirting in 3x02.
Ok. I have to stop. I’ve been studying this dress for 30 minutes. Those are my theories. JUMP in Olicity fandom. What do you guys think?
