“Gone but not forgotten.” A message John Diggle shared with his family, Felicity and Thea, is the feel of tonight’s Arrow. Oliver Queen remained with Ra’s al Ghul to save Thea, protect his friends and the city. “Al Sah-him” shows Ra’s has very different plans for Oliver, his friends and Starling City.
Refusing Ra’s al Ghul has its consequences. Week after week Oliver resisted and lost more of himself. Betrayal, death, an allies departure… but nothing could prepare Ollie for finding Thea beaten and bloodied.
