    oliver and Felicity are trapped in the bunker after the blast.

    The blast was an EMP, apparently rigged by Chase, that has shut down all power and life support systems to the bunker and it shut down Felicity's spine chip.

    We get a flashback to some months ago that gives us a brief glimpse of Olicity again.

    The episode is mainly a race against the clock to get them out of the bunker before the lack of air and leaking methane gas kill them.

    Of course they get rescued and head to an Argus facility to recover. Curtis gets Felicity back on her feet.

    Another flashback has them talking about their relationship and how one day they may have the "big talk" and may get back together.

    Oliver confesses to Felicity in the bunker about how he feels that he loves the killing and she tells him that is not true, etc etc, blah blah.

    later as Oliver is recovering, she tells him she understands now about why he didn't tell her about his son.

    Oliver is concerned that Chase trapped them in the bunker so that he could track down William......and at the end of the episode, Chase has found William.


    So it looks like Team Arrow needs a new base of ops. Argus could likely help with that which may be good as Chase may not be expecting that.

    Also what about the Queen family mansion? I do not recall it being sold off or anything after his mother's death. Since he is already basically the equivalent of Bruce Wayne he might as well set up shop at home.

I know most people probably hated this relationship-centric episode but I liked it for one reason...Felicity forgave Oliver about not telling her he had a son. The fact that she held a grudge about that knowing full well masked mass murderers routinely want Oliver dead always bothered the heck out of the point the specter of it has hung over the show and Felicity as a character ever since. To me she was putting her relationship over the kid's life. She had plenty of other reasons to dump Oliver...but that one was none of her business IMO. Not when it comes to a kid who could be killed if psychos found out about him.

I'm kind of hoping next season we get a time jump and William is old enough to be a teen archer. I'm ready for the show to bite the bullet and let Oliver be a dad to his kid.
