    Helix knows Felicity is Overwatch and apparently knows about all the rest of Team Arrow.

    They aid Felicity in finding footage where Promethues unmasked and was caught on camera then work to remove the digital scrambling that pixelized his face.

    Dinah makes sure the cops get the photo and Felicity sends it to the internet.

    Oliver wants the Brahtva to take down Prometheus. Oliver makes a deal with his old pals, but Diggle finally gets Oliver to wake up and pull his head out his rear.

    The deal is off and now Oliver has the Brahtva for new enemies. Kind of fitting since Prometheus fried off Oliver's Bratvha tattoos.

    Oliver also breaks up with his reporter girlfriend as he doesn't want her hurt any more. We'll see how long that lasts or if he turns his eye to Dinah....

    The police contact the US Marshals that have Chase in protective custody, and one shows the other the footage that shows Chase is Prometheus, but Prometheus kills his guards and escapes.

    Oddly he doesn't seem all that upset. He's either crazier then I thought or he planned for even this.

I thought this episode was much better than last week's episode and was IMO the best use of Anatoly to date. I liked the whole theme of brotherhood that went through this episode...Anatoly is sort of Oliver's ghost of Christmas Future...that's what Oliver becomes without Diggle keeping him on his path. Oliver was Anatoly's Diggle and he was adrift without that friendship to keep him grounded. I'm a sap...I love any episode that revolves around Diggle giving a motivating speech to Oliver as their dynamic is one of my favorite things about this show.

I am kind of glad Oliver's friendship with Anatoly seems to be over. We know Anatoly murders people but we don't know that they're all evil. Oliver seems to look the other way about all the horrible things Anatoly does back in Russia so he can exploit that friendship when he needs to. I thought it was a little hypocritical for Oliver to come down on Anatoly at the end of the episode...and not just because Oliver made a deal with him earlier in the episode. Oliver's always looked the other way with Anatoly and it's a little late making value judgments about him now. I know Anatoly was wrong to steal drugs and threaten to murder a bunch of people but I don't think he's wrong really with his complaint about Oliver only being a friend when it suits Oliver. Oliver is a total fairweather friend to Anatoly.
