Storyline

The time is fast approaching for the Undertaking to occur and Malcolm Merlyn begins to tidy up the loose ends, beginning with the scientists at UNIDAC. Oliver and Digg trick Moira into telling just what the Undertaking is about. Oliver realizes that even if he manages to eliminate everyone on his father's list he has only, in his own words, eliminated the symptoms and not the disease. Felicity locates the UNIDAC device - sort of. Thea and Roy's relationship comes to head when they are unable to locate the vigilante. Walter files for divorce. Laurel and Oliver begin a new relationship. In a flashback to his time on the island, Oliver learns just what Edward Fyers' plan is. Written by garykmcd

John Diggle: [on earpiece] Oliver, the device... It's gone.
Arrow: Where's the device?
Malcolm Merlyn: Safe. I don't know how you got that trojan onto my system, but it prompted me to take precautions. There is nothing you can do to stop what is about to happen. And you shouldn't.
