We knew it was coming, but that didn’t make it any less brutal. In a shocking turn of events, Damien Darhk violently stabbed Laurel Lance to death in revenge for Quentin’s betrayal in tonight’s episode of Arrow. While Arrow fans have speculated as to which of the show’s characters would be meeting their maker this season after the death was teased in the season premiere, tonight that morbid little mystery was solved…most likely to the great shock of comic book fans everywhere.
Last night’s episode of The Flash, “Legends of Today,” kicked off this year’s two part crossover event with Arrow by introducing us to an immortal villain, two reincarnated heroes and what’s likely to be one major change to Oliver Queen’s life. But this week’s episodes of The Flash and Arrow are noteworthy for another reason as well.
