    Currently unknown. But knowing the Arrow writers, they'll use some deux ex machina rather than make Oliver work for it. Watson will get killed or revealed to be a corrupt LEO is one option; ARGUS throwing their weight around is another. If they actually don't do this and make Oliver work to clear his name so he can be GA again, I'll be surprised. But the season so far hasn't shown they're willingness to learn.

    Example: William would not be just fine with his newly-found father dating someone, much less marrying them, mere months after his mother died. A kid's logic would see that as the newly-found dad wanting the kid to accept the new woman as a 'stepmom' despite any claims to the contrary, and would result in moodiness and a rebellious attitude. So far... yeah. William somehow loves Felicity (as expected since Guggenheim and his team can't write anyone having a negative opinion of her, even villains), and will probably be just fine with that, and will be just fine with Oliver becoming GA again despite having been the reason for Oliver leaving the team in the first place.

    So I have little doubt that 'all will be easily resolved' rather than them making the characters work for it.

    Why wouldn't he be fine? His newly found father wasn't dating his mom. He'd have no reason to be jealous for his mom. And no one is trying to make Felicity into his new mom. She's played tutor and playmate so far. And she lets him eat ice cream for dinner and plays video games with him AND makes his dad less grumpy. This isn't a situation where dad leaves, divorces mom and starts a new relationship and the kid is resentful. It takes more work to come up with reasons why Wiliam would freak out about Felicity than not.

    I do think he's going to be upset about Oliver lying to him about being GA but you likely will be right that he'll get over it eventually. But I don't think they will do it with no fallout or blowback.

    I do think that Oliver will win his court case not just because if he didn't, the show would be set in a prison but I think they will have him win so that Double Jeopardy rules kick in and then at the end of the season he tells the world he is the GA, he can't be prosecuted. I maintain it's a terrible idea (not to mention he'd be tried for any future crimes technically) but after that comment Agent Watson made about vigilantes hiding behind masks or something like that, it seems the natural progression.
