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.
If Ollie were here, we’re pretty sure he’d tell us that no good can come from keeping secrets. That’s why every Wednesday night after a new episode of Arrow, we unpack any intriguing tidbits that might have been revealed that night in a little feature we call #DCTV Secrets. These “secrets” aren’t really things you’re not supposed to know. Rather, they’re elements drawn directly from the many years of comic book continuity that serve as the basis of the show. If you’re not a regular comic book reader, you might not notice all of them.
