John Constantine to the rescue! Appearing in both flashbacks and present time, Constantine proves that he’s more than just an asset to Team Arrow. We find out more about the island and why certain people are drawn to it.

Laurel struggles with her decision of bringing Sara back, as she is on the loose and harming others. Team Arrow must stop her before she kills someone… or herself. We learn that Sara is after Thea and after a vicious fight between the two, Thea lands in the hostpital.

With the help of Constantine, Oliver and Laurel enters Sara’s mind to get her soul back… by dragging her out of the water? Regardless how it was resolved, Sara’s soul is restored, Oliver and Laurel makes peace, and we hope to see more guest appearances by Constantine.
