The Scribbler follows Suki (Katie Cassidy), a young woman confronting her destructive mental illness using “The Siamese Burn,” an experimental machine designed to eliminate multiple personalities. The closer Suki comes to being “cured,” she’s haunted by a thought - what if the last unwanted identity turns out to be her?

I’m just upset because I don’t understand why Laurel is apparently not worthy of joining the team and is being “forced” into the team, when next to no one had this big of a problem with Roy joining the team? I mean, I know everyone loves the original Team Arrow and although no one claims that he’s part of the original team, no one claims that he doesn’t deserve to be a part of it either.
And honestly speaking, Laurel has done more for Oliver as the Arrow than Roy has. I feel like people forget that when the show started, the two people that most helped the Arrow and believed in him were Diggle and Laurel. The difference was that one of them knew the man behind the mask and one of them didn’t, as opposed to Diggle and Felicity where both were aware of his identity from the beginning. As much as I love Team Arrow, I think it’s fair to think of Diggle and Laurel as being Oliver’s teammates in the beginning of season one and by extension, a part of his team- regardless of whether or not they had an inclusive name they were referred to by.
This is season three. Laurel believed in and supported the Arrow through season one. She lost this confidence in him after suffering a terrible loss and blamed him for reasons that admittedly don’t seem logical to the rest of us, but she was grieving. I remember when the fandom had suspicions that Ivo was Felicity’s father and were wondering if Felicity would have a falling out with Oliver over it. Somehow I don’t think she would receive the same level of hate if she did. It took some time, but by the end of season two not only was Laurel’s faith in the Arrow back but her faith in Oliver was stronger than ever. Oliver himself stopped being the Arrow after Tommy died because he no longer wanted to be a killer. Laurel lost her faith in the Arrow at the same time because she started to basically regard him as a dangerous and destructive person. If Laurel isn’t worthy of taking on the role of one of the Arrow’s supporters and teammates again, a role she already played in season one, was Oliver not deserving enough to return to his role as the Arrow? Laurel isn’t being forced onto the team because Diggle and Felicity were there first. By that logic, not only was Roy forced onto the team by the writers but so was Felicity because the people Oliver relied on at the very beginning were Diggle and Laurel.
