After taking a mob accountant's laptop, Oliver plans to return the money to its rightful owners. Felicity however finds that Dominic Alonzo - the operator of an illegal casino and the head of a gang known for kidnapping - was paid $2 million to kidnap Walter. Arrow pays him a visit and is told that Walter is dead. He tells his mother and Thea but Moira rushes to Malcolm Merlyn demanding to know why he broke their agreement. He assures her that Walter is alive and will be released as long as she continues to cooperate. Oliver is listening to the entire conversation and now knows that his mother is involved, just as Digg had warned him. Flashbacks reveal Malcolm's plan and also the the sinking of Frank Queen's luxury yacht was no accident. Laurel meanwhile tries to make up with Tommy and finally learns the real reason he broke up with her. Written by garykmcd

This episode is amazing and epic. The cast shows great acting and I love It! The fight scenes are fantastic and epic, they are really realistic! Malcolm Merlyn is really cool and has a great story, it is really sad! I,cant wait for the next episode!!!!! Love It this show is amazing Arrow Vs Dark Archer will be amazing! I am really glad that Oliver didn't Ask laurel out on a date, because that would not be nice towards Tommy! Oliver queen and Diggle are the best team and I am glad that they are back, Felicity wanted them back and she got her wish! I love the flashbacks of when they are creating the undertaking, It is awesome and Robert is cool. Oliver not a good guy for sleeping with his girlfriends sister! Again I love this,show!
