1. Oliver Queen and Felicity Smoak

A decade ago, the idea of Oliver Queen and Felicity Smoak getting together made Arrow fans giddy with excitement. Just one season later, it left them exhausted.

The decision not to pair the Green Arrow with his comic book love interest (Black Canary) was questionable from the start, but there was no denying the chemistry between Stephen Amell and Emily Bett Rickards. Unfortunately, that chemistry wasn't enough to save Arrow from the absolute torpedo that Olicity ended up being in season 4.

Fans grew tired of the pair's relationship pretty quickly because of how toxic it made both characters act. Felicity, a once-fun and light-hearted member of Team Arrow had become a selfish shell of who she once was that often made life-or-death situations about her (remember how she acted when Oliver's son was kidnapped or even how she interrupted Barry and Iris' wedding so that she could marry Oliver on a whim?), was unbearable in this season and it quickly highlighted that not every popular recurring character is capable of being a main character. Meanwhile, Oliver repeatedly lied, forcing more and more eye-rolling conflict between the two.

Whenever Arrow became about Olicity, it became all about Olicity. The storylines came second, the characters came second, and the show itself came second to a couple that completely lost sight of what made them such an interesting pairing in the first place.

While the pair's second stint as a couple was more successful than their first, it had lost its excitement at that point. Fans had more than enough melodrama in that one season to last them a lifetime, so the notion of these two in each other's orbit for anything other than working together made them shudder. And honestly, who could blame them?
