 This is NOT a review of Masquerade lol.This is more poor attempt to see if anyone wants to comment and made me feel better.

So after seeing Oliver be marked withe darkness or whatever. It was like a punch to my Chlollie heart. Kinda sucked all the fun (and muse) out of it for me. Let's not forget that preview where Chloe says 'We really did get married' and Clark is holding a ring.

So there are some things I do know. They have been really putting the Chlollie relationship up front. So why ruin it when it seems that Chloe and Oliver want nothing more then to be with one another. Especially after their conversation at the end of Masquerade. It's the last season and quite possibly the end of Chloe's run. We know they want to end her on a happy note, I just can't see them doing this with the darkness infecting Oliver and this goofy marriage thing

I'm not quite sure where they are going with the darkness and Oliver. What bothers me is that next week is Chloe's last episode (that we know of) so he will go on to be infected by this without her? It just doesn't seem right...

As for the marriage thing, yes, I am well aware not to trust anything, especially in a preview. it could very well turn out that it WAS Olive and Chloe got married. I hope so. I mean really,  why would the writers want to taint everything by having Clark and Chloe accidentally get married?

So anyone who actually read this, talk me out of feeling down. Pleeeeease.

I'm sorry you're feeling this way, because I'm feeling pretty goddamned giddy after Friday. I'm convinced that it's going to turn out to be Chloe and Oliver who got married and that the "BIG Chlollie moment" that we're going to be so happy about is that they're going to decide not to get the marriage annulled. I don't know exactly how they're going to get Chloe out of the way--I suspect she's going to take off to wrangle the Suicide Squad to help with the Darkness and it's only going to come out that Oliver is marked after she leaves, so she won't know. And I think his last eps are going to be about defeating the darkness within him, either on his own, or in part because of his love for Chloe (the same way she used her love for him to help fight off DeSaad), with the help of Clark/the League, with Kara's bracelet...

I strongly suspect they've either already shot or are going to shoot a little scene for the last ep with AM for the finale even if she doesn't actually appear live; but even if they don't, all they have to do is have Oliver answer a ringing phone and say, "Hi baby, I'm coming home," or tell Clark, "Okay, you seem to have everything under control here, I'm off to go retrieve my woman."

And now you know why I'm no good at angst, because I'm an eternal optimist. But I really do think this is what's going to happen. :)

I hope so. You know I think of all of those things too, but I still can't but be concerned. Mainly about the darkness and the marriage. It isn't like I am scared of a chlark marriage at all, but it will be annoying if that is what they did do.

Ausiello did say that it was a popular couple, I wouldn't think that he was referring to Clark and Chloe, they aren't a couple first of all and clois and chlollie are more popular now. He also said that the big chlollie moment was to good to spoil, so yea I do recognize that the hints are pointing in that direction, but I still worry.

Awww, I know what you mean. Chloe and Ollie's final conversation of the episode had me flying so high I completely forgot about him beating up DeSaad and thought he was sneaking back over to her desk to steal a picture of her or something! When I saw the mark on his head I was floored!

Still, I'm not too gutted over the development. Before this season started, I was kinda hoping they'd make Ollie bad. I figured with AM being away, it would be a good way to use the character without throwing away everything that had already been laid out. Obviously, things didn't go that way, but I feel like they could do that now and things would still work.

The theory my overactive imagination came up with is that Chloe and Ollie do get married in Fortune and the episode ends with them leaving on a honeymoon. I think JH isn't slated for the next few episodes, so this could work.

When he returns, he could say that Chloe's busy setting up a new Watchtower for herself somewhere else, when in reality, she figured out that Ollie's infected and either he hid her away, or she ran away in order to figure out how to save him.

The last few episodes could involve Bad!Ollie trying to sabotage Clark, but eventually conquering the darkness and becoming a good guy once again. Then in the finale, cue a Chloe cameo where she either returns to get Ollie, or he goes off and finds her.

I realize this might be a little ambitious, but like you pointed out, I can't imagine TPTB spending all this time establishing Chlollie just to tear it up. Plus, everything we've seen so far with respect to AM's departure seems to suggest that fans will be pleased with her ending. (AM's said as much.)

Even for those who don't like this ship, I can't see how her going away broken hearted could be perceived as a good thing. And I'm convinced she would be broken hearted if she and Ollie ended their relationship. For her not to be would be a complete 180 from the last three episodes.

I'm not sure if I've made you feel better at all... All I can say is keep the faith! I mean, Chlollie's made it this far. Now's not the time to throw in the towel!

Yep, THIS, exactly. :)

Aren't there supposed to be wacky hijinks because Lois misplaced hers? I think it's just Lois's.

I know what you're feeling. I was feeling the same way but I the happiness of the episode overcame anything I was feeling otherwise. Like Ficery said as well I am confident with hope that Chloe and Oliver got married. They probably showed what they did in the previews to get buzz for the episode. They know if they show somethign like that it will get people to watch and see what actually happens.

What truly makes me believe it is that with all the Chlollie love we have been getting lately, why end it right then and there. There has been so much going on between them in the past couple of episodes between these two that you would have to be crazy to miss.

I mean even though this is her last episode they could end up suprising us in the end. Once again like Fickery said maybe we will get at least a little scene at the end. To me it would just seem wrong that after all that has happened in 10 years that they would just say goodbye and leave it at that. Espically including all that went down between Chloe in Oliver in Masquerade.

I'm an eternal optimist so I always look for the brighter things. I have high hopes. So I'm looking at Chlollie for endgame as the light at the end of the tunnel. :)

Hey Calie!

My first reaction to Ollie being infected by the darkness was absolute dissapoinment. Now I feel better, because Im trying to stay positive that TPTB won't ruin Ollie. But never, not even for a moment, I have thought that this is going to be reason for a Chlollie breakup. If there has to happen a breakup, I think it will be more related to the last talk Chloe and Oliver had. About Chloe not being sure who she is anymore, so she maybe will want to leave to find herself and all that crap...

Plus, if Fortune is Chloe's last episode, there's less chance that the darkness will be an issue for them, because seriously... can you see the darkness in Ollie adressed while he's wearing a showgirl custome??? LOL. I think it will be skipped in this episode. Fortune is meant to be pure comedy, and probably some fluff too. I think Dark Oliver, IF it happens, will be adressed more close to the finale.

For the same reason, I am not worried at all about a possible Chlark marriage. First, I highly doubt TPTB will go there, not so much because of Chlollie but because of Clois. The wouldn't do that to them at this point. Anyway, it looks like everything will be just a misunderstood. And TBH I don't care much about Chlollie getting married or not, I just want to see them stay together. If Chloe leaves at the end of Fortune because of the "who I am" thing, Im going to be very dissapointed.

My reasons to be worried about the darkness thing are strictly about Oliver, but I hope TPTB will work with this story as I think it should be, and never forgetting that Oliver is a hero. And TBH, it doesn't bother me that Chloe will not be there when Oliver has to face this, because IMO, this is something that Oliver should deal alone, he shouldn't need anyone to get rid of the darkness inside him. But that's just my opinion, Im Ollie's advocate :P
