ARROW

E! Online has posted an interesting tidbit for fans of the Oliver/Felicity will-they-won't-they tension on "Arrow." Apparently, there was supposed to be a kiss between the two in the season finale that hit the cutting room floor. Granted, it was during Oliver's show for Slade so that Team Arrow could outsmart him, but still.
