Layla experiences Braxton Hicks.

Felicity blows Oliver away when he sees her at dinner. She's taken pills, he's drinking. They're really nervous. He tells her about his time in Hong Kong.

Oliver says he might have been when he didn't think he could be with someone he really cared about, and then a missile explodes.

The new Vertigo is annoyed about Oliver's ability to live. Vertigo has been enhanced with his greatest fear. After being injected, he sees Vertigo as himself. Lance has a heart issue.

Vertigo is down, but he's not worried. He knows someone will always pick up the mantle because people have given it power.

Ray asks for help cleaning up porcupine farts off of all his stuff if he promises to apologize. Not if he did the same to steal her friend's company!

Felicity and Oliver visit Diggle and Layla.

Felicity doesn't want to talk to Oliver because if they do, it will be over.

Barry calls Oliver for advice.

Sara and Laurel talk. Sara isn't ready to see Lance. Laurel doesn't want her to choose the life for her. They hug.
