Ben Turner escapes from prison with assistance from Milo Armitage, who also pays him $10 million to steal a prototype of Malcolm Merlyn's earthquake device. Arrow tries to teach Roy self-control, but Roy loses control during a mission and Turner manages to escape with the device. Arrow tracks down the device and is forced to reveal his identity to Roy in order to get his help in destroying the device. Meanwhile, Laurel learns that she may be disbarred because of her addiction, and spirals further out of control. In addition, Moira agrees to run for mayor against Sebastian, and Amanda Waller propositions Turner to commute his sentence in exchange for him joining a "squad" she is forming. In flashbacks, Oliver struggles with the guilt of letting Shado die and stops Slade from destroying Ivo's freighter with Fyers' missile launcher.
