OKAY BECAUSE LETS GO THROUGH THIS ONE BY ONE

1. “on if i think you use the corporate jet for a weekend of fun with your assistant?” this explains SO MUCH why isabel went along. it didn’t make sense for her to come along any other way- it’s not like she was especially interested in oliver prior to this, not enough to follow him to russia. she saw the roster had the plane leaving with oliver and felicity on board and came along to prevent them from (in her eyes) fooling around as much as possible, which we know, but maybe it was for felicity

2. her accusation of their affair and “there’s only one way a blonde IT girl gets promoted to executive assistant”. isabel was probably given countless benefits in her internship, due to the fact that she was sleeping with the ceo. she sees the same thing happening and immediately calls it out.

3. when she sleeps with oliver, she prefaces it with telling him that everyone at QC thinks he and felicity are sleeping together. almost every point in their conversations prior has been related to felicity, with isabel putting out oliver’s supposed affairs without giving him a chance to deny it

4. FINALLY when she leaves the hotel room after sleeping with oliver, she makes a point to walk past felicity. inherently, i don’t think isabel is that kind of person. why on earth would she be jealous of an IT expert turned executive assistant?? especially given the most recent episode and isabel’s declaration that robert was her “soulmate” her interest in oliver kind of falls short. she especially wouldn’t be so head over heels that she would want to dispel the hopes of his rumored mistress??

mad respect for isabel rochev now not gonna lie
