Last night, Arrow pulled off a feat in its penultimate episode of the season, when Slade’s army of super-powered convicts ambushed the citizens of Starling City and created all out chaos that perhaps even the Arrow won’t be able to stop. After freeing himself from the depths of their exploded tunnel, Oliver and Laurel went their separate paths to fight against the Deathstroke army in their own way. For Laurel, it was running into Sarah, learning who she really was and giving her the strength to fight. For Oliver, it was obtaining the stolen Mirakuru cure from Sebastian (who stole it from Slade after he stole it from the S.T.A.R. Labs courier) and testing it on Roy after learning Amanda Waller had cordoned off the city and was preparing to level it at dawn in order to keep Slade’s army from getting loose.
The last hope for the citizens of Starling now rests in Oliver’s hands in the Arrow season finale “Unthinkable.”
Something worth noting in these images is a lack of John Barrowman’s Malcolm Merlyn, whose fate was left uncertain at the end of the last episode, when Thea shot at him after deciding she wouldn’t go with her now-confirmed biological father to safety from the attacking convict army.
Let’s be honest, there’s really only one way to sum all this up:
