WTF’s filled twitter. Meme’s were being created. The rewind button was frantically abused and I got one distressed call from my older brother. “Did they just kill their lead?”
2. PAIN & GUILT
Flashes of Stephen Amell’s Movember moustache enter your head. So he wasn’t filming?? Maybe it’s true or at least he’ll be missing for a while. Arrow without The Arrow? Now, that like Ra’s sword to the gut. Slowly, a thought creeps into your head. Maybe it’s our fault? Maybe Amell needed a break after all the Fan Conventions and Facebook training Videos. We just pushed him too hard. Too many Meme Mondays and Fanart Fridays, the guy just needed a break. Yep, the Fangirl Guilt has set in.
Perhaps, this is when@arrowwriters, Marc Guggenheim, Andrew Kreisberg and Greg Berlanti might all want to take Twitter cover because 140 characters worth of hate is coming. Don’t worry, it will slowly transition to kinder, yet, more strategic tweets. “I promise to watch all the episodes live, if you let me know if Oliver Queen lives.” “I will pay a Nielsen family to watch Arrow, if Oliver Queen isn’t really dead.”
4. DEPRESSION, REFLECTION, LONELINESS
“I spent Five weeks in a hellish hiatus.” That’s what we are about to embark on. Some might say it’s the happiest time of the year, but instead there will be lots of Mint Chocolate chip ice cream consumed while watching that forehead kiss on repeat.
Slowly after a good forty viewings of the episodes, unhealthy amounts of hours on Youtube watching Olicity videos set to “My Heart Will Go On,” and endless amount of Tumblr debates, you feel like you might make it through. Mostly because of two beautiful word: Lazarus Pit.
