Grief is like the ocean: it’s deep and dark and bigger than all of us. And pain is like a thief in the night. Quiet. Persistent. Unfair. Diminished by time and faith and love.

"Dan and Blair challenge one another. They bring each other back down to reality and call each other out on their facades. And they do it without dictating or trying to control each others lives in any way. They also appreciate one another. Dan and Blair have a lot of self-loathing. Blair has always felt second-best in her relationships and Dan adopted a whole new persona just to feel accepted amongst his peers. They both say to one another ‘Hey, you’re a wonderful person and I accept you.’ Dan and Blair represent the idea that two completely opposite people can still form a relationship, despite class differences or prejudices against them.” x x
[Felicity and Oliver are going on a date in the season premiere. How do you avoid the tv trope that a hero can’t be with the woman he loves just because of his duty?]
When you see the premiere and you see how things shake out, you’ll come to a very sympathetic understanding of both of their positions. The premiere last year was a microcosm of what was happening for the whole year. In the same way that the premiere of last season was really about Oliver struggling with whether or not he should be the Arrow, in this season premiere it’s, “Can I have everything I want?” that quest is going to take up his entire year, and hers. - Andrew Kreisberg
