Arrow Season 4 Episode 18
Oliver and Diggle learn that Merlyn is going to try to break Darhk out of prison. Meanwhile, Laurel gets a surprising offer and Felicity has a heart-to-heart talk with Curtis.
The Previous episode left off with Andy meeting with Malcolm, this episode starts off with Andy telling Diggle the plan to help Darhk escape Iron Hights. While Diggle and Oliver are out following up on Andy’s information, Malcolm and a few loyal members of the League break into the Arrow Hide out and steal the idol which hold the powers of Darhk.
The team is tracking Malcolm to catch him prior to him handing the Idol over the Darhk, follow to a warehouse were Any takes a arrow for Oliver. Even with this act, Oliver still questions Andy’s Loyalties.
The Team is ultimately called into action when Darhk takes the guards hostage in his cell block, once the team is in Andy turns on them and hands the gem that powers the idol over to Darhk. With Darhk fully powered up, he uses his powers and in the end Laurel pays the ultimate price.
We finally know who is in the grave, Laurel Lance. This is a surprise twist which I did not see coming. Not sure how I feel about this, for the first time since the beginning of season 1, I was starting to warm to Laurel. She really started to become the Black Canary and was the perfect addition to the Team.
Now there is some interesting twist and turns which could take place and allow Laurel to come back. Technically Sara is still bouncing around time on Legends of Tomorrow. If she come back early enough the timeline could reset itself, giving that the grave scene should take place in the next few episode there technically are enough episode which would allow this to happen and make sense still. I guess we will have to wait and see how this will play out.
This is a solid episode, it works because they steered away from the relationship drama and went with more action. It was also nice to have an episode with very little felicity. I am definitely looking forward to the next few episode to see what the fall out should be.
