Oliver takes on H.I.V.E. on the ‘Arrow’ mid-season finale


In a two-part crossover with The Flash, Teams Flash and Arrow teamed up to protect Kendra Saunders (Hawkgirl) and Carter Hall (Hawkman) from Vandal Savage, an immortal bent on their deaths. In the first part, Barry and Cisco took Kendra to Star City, where the team confronted Savage and ended in a tie because Savage was distracted by Kendra awakening her powers.
In the second part of the two-parter, the team once again confronted Savage but he overcame them and killed everyone but Barry, who traveled back in time. The team used the second chance to defeat Savage, though Malcolm Merlyn collected Savage’s remains so he can go on to Legends of Tomorrow.
Meanwhile, Oliver learned that he has a son and asked his ex to have a relationship with William. Her terms were that Oliver not tell anyone, and he agreed. As Oliver started getting to know his son, he was also keeping a major secret from Felicity — which Barry warned him against doing.
