As promised by the producers, Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards) has taken darker turn in the second-half of the season following the death of her boyfriend Detective Billy Malone (Tyler Ritter). It has been even more apparent ever since Helix hacktivist Kojo Sledgehammer (played by Hannibal's Kacey Rohl) handed Felicity a jump drive containing stolen data from the NSA. She started off by using the top-secret files to help free Diggle, leaking the NSA's case against Walker. But in last Wednesday's episode, she made some major morally questionable decisions. She lied to Rory and Curtis about who she was meeting, had them dress-up as Bratva enforcers, and then blackmailed an executive with the stolen data — showing no regard for the safety of the man's family.
So when will Oliver find out what's really going on? "He knows that she's into something, and he knows that she doesn't want to tell him about it, so he's dealing with that in his own way," Stephen Amell told EW. "For Felicity, it's not something that she and Oliver discuss until they have what is actually an adult conversation about it in [a future episode]."
WILD DOG'S HISTORY IS REVEALED — A traumatic attack on City Hall triggers painful memories for Rene (Rick Gonzalez) about his family. Flashbacks reveal how Rene went from simple family man to a hero named Wild Dog.
Meanwhile, Oliver (Stephen Amell) must deal with the perpetrator behind the attack and realizes the best way to do so is as Mayor Queen instead of the Green Arrow. Tensions run high in the Arrow bunker.
Kristin Windell directed the episode written by Marc Guggenheim.
