She is the most useless character in the series by far.

Told you show it was a bad idea to give Oliver Queen a little sister

Not really, I think that their building up to something involving her. I still think that she'll join Team Arrow at some point. The showrunners wouldn't be dumb enough to introduce the whole "wicked aim" thing and then not pay it off. They've shown themselves to be smarter than that. Also, Oliver's half-sister in the comics right now is a badass.

Yeah i hope she joins team arrow. Maybe her and Roy will join near the same time and compete against each other (I know it's wishful thinking).

Right now, I think Roy will be Arsenal (him relying mostly on gadgets will allow them to skip a lot of the time it'll take to get him properly trained to be Red Arrow) and Thea will be Speedy.

Guys I don't know if that Thea and Digg pic is legit or not, it seems an odd choice given the two have barely had a scene together, but either way it's not suitable for this site.

That's exactly what I hope happens.

Pah, saw more skin in the X-Men films

It was actually taken from Willa's own instagram when the Season 2 photoshoot was done, so totally legit. It seems the girls were on that shoot as well as the guys.

I don't know why they just released the shirtless guy pictures. Maybe the girl pics were a bit too spicey or maybe, like in the picture with Diggle, they all seemed so slightly creepy and uncomfortable. (TBH all the shots with just the guys were random enough)

I'm pretty sure the original plan was for her to be Speedy. They make you aware of it with her trophy and Oliver's nickname for her, and even setting up a future Speedy addiction angle ripped from the pages. Obviously, they wouldn't go too deep into it in season one, Oliver's transition and finishing his fathers list as priority one. It looks like they changed there mind halfway through and brought in Rocky the Red Ranger. Either way, her marksmanship was somewhat established and not something they pulled out of their asses.

He's still old enough to be her father though.

The pic is in total violation of the "Half Your Age Plus Seven" Rule. Ergo, CREEPY!!

It's not creepy; just kind of weird when remember that their characters have never directly interacted on screen.

The relevance being that I would bet all the blondes in Norway that you are under the age of 25, and male, and probably have a "why not me?" attitude towards most girls your own age. 41 and 22 is hardly that big of an age difference in our society. And anyway, it's just a photoshoot that you are getting worked up about, not real life or even a storyline from the show, and that paints a picture of a very sad soul.

In numerous James Bond films, a 40-something (or more) Bond has been paired up with a woman sometimes even in her early 20s. While it's fictional, so is that pic of Diggle and Thea in the sense that it's not reflective of what is really happening between the actors in real life. So obviously it isn't considered that creepy, and people aren't thinking of that socially acceptable rule.

Besides, even in real life where there is attraction, you can't help who you fall for. Sometimes it just happens that there is that age gap. It's not like everyone deliberately seeks that. Would people sometimes like it that there weren't as big a gap? Of course. But what are they going to do about it if they like the other person?

Wrong on all accounts but whatevs. Generally don't like people making presumptions about me and vice versa. Find it somewhat rude.

Back to the issue at hand, the rule is a commentary on any kind of intimate contact and not purely about sexual relations. Plus, not getting worked up about anything. It was a tongue in cheek comment about how the combination is somewhat awkward age-wise.

Quit calling it a rule. It's a preference and it's as ignorant as it is asinine.

And I'm wrong on all acounts? Tell me again how you are a woman in her 30s, MR peasant.

It is a preference in an ideal world if you could pick exactly which characteristics you want in a relationship. But things rarely work out in an ideal way, and like I said, you can't always choose who you will fall for. If there is a connection between two people but the age gap is large, yes, you would prefer it if it weren't that way, but are the two people going to write it off just because of this so-called "rule"?

Willa Holland is 22 so over the age of consent. She's within her right to take a picture with someone whether it's racy or not. And they are not dating, so what is the issue?

I find it more weird that those two never had a scene together and the photographer decided to take a picture of them.

Have they even met in the show? I don't recall. I don't know if Felicity has even shared a scene with Thea.

I'm not supporting this idiotic "rule", that's mr peasant. I'm calling him out for how stupid it is. See above posts.
