This week on The CW’s Arrow, the Diggles’ sibling rivalry took a nasty turn, building to the realization of Damien Darhk’s grand plan. (TV’s other Hive, please take note.) Here’s what everybody was up to:
‘Magical Mystery Tour’ | Dubbed this by Diggle himself, Oliver trekked to Hub City, with a persistent Felicity in tow, to meet up with an associate of Constantine’s — the “immortal shaman” Esrin Fortuna — whom he (eventually) met at an underground casino.

Creator Josh Wakely will direct, write, and produce Beat Bugs, which was green-lit by Netflix after securing a deal with Sony/Atv publishing for the worldwide rights to cover songs from John Lennon and Paul McCartney's Northern Songs catalogue, Rolling Stone reports.
