Arrow Season Finale Recap: Sacrifice in Starling City

With an ominous title of "Sacrifice", is it any wonder that the season 1 finale of Arrow was so dramatic and had such high stakes? Confrontations. Malcolm strung up Oliver after capturing The Hood and the two had a back-and-forth that primarily involved Malcolm telling Oliver that his own quest lacked conviction and that's why he kept losing to him. Fortunately, Oliver was able to free himself after Malcolm left and was soon rescued by Diggle. Felicity, meanwhile, was happy to hear about Oliver's rescue, but her trip back to the batcave was interrupted by Lance, who brought her in for questioning about her hacking activities. The interrogation was interrupted by a call from the Hood, who warned Lance about the device. When Lance told his fellow officers that they needed to help The Glades, he was forced to confess how he had been talking to the Hood for several months and was suspended by his lieutenant. Tommy and Oliver also had an unfortunate confrontation where Tommy told Oliver that he had spotted him kissing Laurel and Oliver tried to impress upon his friend the real urgency of the situation: Malcolm's Undertaking. Tommy refused to believe his friend about his father's cruelty and left. Oliver then headed home to confront Moira about the Undertaking and asked her to help him stop it.
