'Arrow's Stephen Amell Says It Was Always Going to Be Oliver and Felicity
Amell received archery training as well, which included watching a video on how archery has been displayed inaccurately or poorly in television and film before learning the basics of shooting a bow.
Amell stated that he has to "steal time at the gym", and spends time on set being active. Pilot episode director David Nutter believes that, following the time on the island, Oliver returns to Starling City with Posttraumatic stress disorder PTSD and this contributes to his willingness to kill.
Amell stated,"Killing people is gonna start to weigh on Oliver. He can't [complete his mission] by himself. He's gonna have to lean on somebody. Similarly identifying Oliver as having PTSD, Amell sees the character as a "damaged individual" who is a "ticking time bomb"; Oliver is not only doing good things, but falling along the way.

There is no choice to make. It leads to Oliver apologizing to Felicity.Arrow Cast Talks "Olicity" Sex Scene & Felicity/Oliver Dating Future - Comic Con 2015
That alone is amazing, because Oliver never apologizes. He takes it one step further and tells Felicity that he needs her. She is his partner. Oliver Queen is an island. Not only does he admit to needing someone - he admits to needing Felicity specifically. She is his partner in every sense of the word. Oliver showed his vulnerability in this episode.
Oliver is allowing himself to need her. To me, this is the moment Oliver truly stepped off the island. He will be dead, but his loved ones will be safe. Felicity tells him to not accept things the way they are. Her refusal to accept her life as it was led her to Oliver.
Oliver knows Felicity wants him to be a hero - sees him as a hero. I cannot with these two. The way his eyes flick down, just for a moment, to look at her lips.
Then, he decides not to. For the briefest of seconds, Oliver thinks Felicity died in the crash. There is no convincing me otherwise. He insists on carrying her and gives Diggle the bow.

He knew he loved her before he told her in 2x23 Unthinkable. This is moment Oliver fell in love with Felicity all at once… Oliver is at his lowest point here.
In a very Buffy-esque moment she tells Oliver strong is fighting. That my friends, is the look of realization. And yet, in the face of everything, Felicity believes in him.
Instead of anger, she shows him compassion. Instead of blame, she shows him unconditional love.
Instead of disbelief, she shows him unwavering faith. He knows he needs her. He knows he will kill for her. He knows he will die for her.
