Which means, first, Oliver and Felicity have to rekindle their romance. Maybe thinking he lost her on Lian Yu, and knowing his son needs a mother, do that.
When will the Olicity stuff end? I'm serious.

Sadly it looks to be true.
There is a photo of Irish/Barry and Oliver/Felicity standing at the alter with Diggle (not in best man/maid of honor positions but side by side) doing the ceremony and another of their 'first kiss' as a married couple.

I'd be upset about this, but you kind of knew something was going to happen with how season 5 was showing them getting closer by the its finale before the island blew up.

I HATE Olicity with the white hot intensity of 1000 suns. But for the love of god, if you are going to put them together, leave them the fuck alone.
Don't drum up some stupid, unnatural, unearned drama for some will they won't they plot bullshit they want to drag on for half the season.

They were already shown becoming close again last season, it was actually done pretty well. So it's not like them getting closer and trying the relationship again will be out of left field.
That link though just sounds like a lot of speculation. All because Oliver and Felicity are standing by Barry and Iris during the wedding. But really, those two would be standing by each other regardless. And if they're in a relationship then it also makes sense they'd stand together. Doesn't necessarily mean they're getting hitched too.

Though going straight for marriage in the crossover would feel a bit rushed, I'd rather see the relationship take it's time but I guess at least they have years of being with each other and one near marriage already so I guess you can almost expect or excuse the fast track if the rumor does end up true.

Well, I really do hope that Olicity remains a friendship than returning to being a relationship for the rest of the series or else, we may see a HIMYM twist that Oliver and Felicity reconcile in the finale. Come on, their romance was one of the reasons why fans (obviously not all fans) felt that season 4 sucked. Them as a romantic couple just doesn't work at all.

Exactly! Them not being together is part of why the story was so great in season 5. It was able to focus on other things

It wasn't the Olicity romance that (most) people hated, it was the Olicity drama. If they rekindled the romance and lost all the unnecessary drama, it would work just fine.

Correction, it was both the romance and drama of the couple that angered fans.

It was two fold, a lot of people hate shipping in general and were mad at what they perceived as giving shipper fans special treatment, but then the writing was also terrible and made Felicty a terrible character to make the drama work.

Honestly, they just aren't good at writing romance or female characters in general. Olicity would be fine if they didn't keep forcing conflict into the relationship instead of just letting it be a part of the characters not the driving factor for them. Let the drama come natural as story goes, don't do a series of "put them together and break them apart" stories that progress nothing else on the show.
