With Argus, Lyla informs everyone that the key that was found on the body was a fake, but they need two keys together to use them. Almost every member with a key is at Argus on lock down except one and ask if Arrow and team can escort her back to Argus. Malena knows of this now too, and has sent a pro to go and retrieve the keycard since Melina was the one who killed Jordan and doesn’t want to do that again. Felicity is getting information from both sides as she is updated on what Arrow and crew’s plans are. Felicity calls Guardian and says that one of the HIVE members needs to get away with the key card to let out Camden who has the technology that can be used to track Adrian Chase and to trust her play. Guardian calls ahead to Arrow and Canary to tell them to let the man go.

She doesn’t give him a choice.
Oliver and his team are gearing up to stop HIVE, while HIVE is getting ready to invade ARGUS. Oliver says that if they come across Felicity they need to stop her.

With this information Arrow arrive shortly after HIVE finds Caden. A battle ensues as only a few members of HIVE are left by the time they get Caden to the van. Oliver gets a jump on them and is going to shoot until Felicity steps in front and tells them to leave. She sets up a laser wall that stops Oliver in his tracks until Curtis can come and save him. She apologizes and says she hopes he understands once they catch Chase but he says he doubts it.
After taking that loss, Oliver wants to stay at headquarters and drink alone in quite reflection. Felicity heads back to HIVE’s headquarters to find it is abandoned.
