The wedding of Diggle and Lyla was a culmination of their relationship throughout the series up to this point and Oliver, Dinah Laurel, Roy, Felicity, Thea, and Ray Palmer were in attendance. Ray was the one who ministered the wedding and was invited through Felicity. After the wedding, everyone was having a good time until Oliver and his team got a text message about impostor Arrows. Immediately, Oliver knew that this was the result of him turning down Ra’s Al Ghul’s offer from last episode. Diggle and Lyla went off for their honeymoon or so they thought.
Diggle and Lyla met with the returning Deadshot, who has a Suicide Squad mission by Amanda Waller’s orders. They are to go to the overseas to rescue a Senator and the other hostages from the terrorists. Joining them is the returning Cupid who happens to be the show’s equivalent to Harley Quinn. There isn’t much conflict in this version of the Suicide Squad and we get a flashback for Deadshot on what he was like before he became a criminal. This was a sign that his days on the show were coming to an end, so it was full circle for him. The twist here is that the Senator himself is the one behind the terrorists’ attacks. The hostages were saved at the price of one life – Deadshot’s. If they killed him off because of the Suicide Squad movie with Will Smith as Deadshot, it’s one of the stupidest reasons to do so and I can’t buy Will Smith as Deadshot.
As Oliver was dealing with impostor Arrows, the relationship between Felicity and Ray hits a snag when Ray found out about Oliver’s identity. In return, Felicity tells Oliver and Roy everything about Ray and his super-suit. Their confrontation in their civilian identities has lead to their fight in costume and we see what Ray can do as Atom. I find it funny that Oliver left Roy after Roy was knocked out by Ray’s electric volts. Dinah Laurel was good in this episode and it’s reminiscent of the first season. The writers forgot what made Dinah Laurel the female lead of the show. Felicity has lost me in this season as she became annoying. She was good when she crosses over to the Flash, which she belongs there more than Arrow.
The end of the episode gave us hints as to who might be leaving the show after this season. It’s funny that we’re getting love triangles in both Arrow and Flash. Great episode overall.
