Arrow’s writers have found a new way to make me obsessed with the show. I’ve been obsessed with Olicity, but now it appears that I will be spending the season dissecting every episode for hints as to who’s in the grave.
So let’s get to the past week’s episode. Sara goes on a killing spree. She’s trying to kill any woman who looks like Thea.
Oliver has learned about the woman who’s killing people and goes out to stop her. Imagine his surprise when he sees Sara. The man who has done many questionable things looks at Laurel as though she’s lost her mind.
Oliver and company finally put two and two together and realize Sara wants to kill Thea. They spend the rest of the episode trying to catch Sara.
Meanwhile, Captain Lance is contacted by Darhk who wants Lance to infect a government server with a virus. Diggle helps Lance break into the federal facility. They hook up the device with the virus, which deletes a number of files — one of which is a file on Diggle’s brother. Lance asks Darhk about Diggle’s brother and manages to get the classified file. Lance gives the file to Diggle who discovers his brother wasn’t as clean as he thought.
The flashbacks in this episode introduced John Constantine. I was wondering how Constantine would be tied to the present, but the writers managed to do it. They used Constantine to save Sara.
Oliver and company trap Sara and find out that her soul is still in the pit. Oliver calls on Constantine to help them retrieve Sara’s soul. In an odd scene, Oliver and Laurel enter another realm and wrestle Sara’s soul from the pit.
This mean’s Sara’s bloodlust is gone, which means my theory that she later kills Thea is out the window. I still think Thea is the likely candidate for the grave and it could be her own bloodlust that gets her killed, which was hinted at in this episode.
However, I also think this episode hinted at Lance being in the grave. Darhk doesn’t like questions and Lance is starting to ask them. Also, they keep talking about how having Lance on the inside will help them bring down Darhk. Will it also get Lance killed?
Who do you think will be in the grave?
By the way, if you were wondering when Ray would be back, he returns this week.
