SEASON 3 – EPISODE 1
LAST SEASON: The cure works and Oliver and his team must escape their hideout when Slade’s men arrive. Back at Verdant, Sara arrives with Nyssa and the League of Assassins to provide backup to take out Slade’s men. Equipped with the cure, the team confront Slade and Isabel at Queen Consolidated. Nyssa kills Isabel, but Slade manages to escape. Meanwhile, Diggle and Lyla go to A.R.G.U.S. to force Waller to stop the nuclear strike on the city. Laurel is abducted from police HQ and Quentin is seriously injured. Thea meets up with Roy, but when she finds a bow and quiver she loses trust in him and decides to leave Starling City with Merlyn. Oliver and his team successfully use the cure on all of Slade’s men. Oliver tricks Slade into kidnapping Felicity, believing she is the one whom Oliver loves. With Slade distracted, Felicity injects him with the cure. Oliver is able to defeat him and Waller calls off the bombing. Slade is locked away in an underground A.R.G.U.S. prison on the island and Sara rejoins the League as payment for helping the city. In flashbacks, Anatoli fires a torpedo into the Amazo, causing it to sink. During the destruction, Oliver presumably kills Slade and Sara disappears overboard. Later, Oliver awakens in Hong Kong, where he meets Amanda Waller
NEW SEASON: Following Slade’s defeat, the Arrow is embraced as a hero by the people of Starling City, and newly-promoted Captain Lance calls off the anti-vigilante task-force. Elsewhere, Werner Zytle, who has claimed the mantle of Vertigo, attempts to kill Arrow in a bid to raise his profile. After losing the first battle, Oliver and Roy are able to stop Zytle, along with some help from Sara who is back in town. Meanwhile, businessman Ray Palmer successfully acquires Queen Consolidated under a plan of rebuilding the city and renaming it “Star City”. Laurel helps Lance deal with his health issues, and Diggle and Lyla welcome a baby girl, which convinces Diggle to take Oliver’s suggestion and retire from field duty. Oliver and Felicity go on a first date, but Oliver ends it explaining how he can’t be the Arrow and Oliver, although he still loves her. After visiting with Laurel, Sara is shot in the chest with arrows by an unseen figure and falls from a rooftop to her death in front of Laurel. In flashbacks, Amanda Waller tries to force Oliver to work for her, and assigns agent Maseo Yamashiro as his handler. After numerous failed attempts to escape, Oliver agrees to proceed with his training to prevent Waller from killing Maseo’s family as punishment for his failure in restraining Oliver.
