The majority of Team Arrow is able to free themselves from the rubble, but Oliver continues to be stuck. He eventually starts seeing a vision of Tommy Merlyn, offering him advice on how to escape. Oliver manages to get out of the rubble he's crushed under, but he's trapped in the room, unable to leave. He spends the majority of the episodes talking to, arguing with, and making amends with Tommy.
