Sebastian tells his mother that he forgives her and leaves the room. Just as Maya lay her head down, Sebastian reappears, but this time he has the skull mask on and kills Maya. We see Laurel in at her desk, about to swallow some pills, when she is interrupted by someone, telling her that there is a call waiting for her from the mental institute. After Laurel learns of Maya's death, she becomes more sure that Sebastian Blood is not at all what he seems, and suspects he might have killed her. Adam dismisses her pleas to investigate Sebastian as there is no evidence to investigate the Alderman. Laurel has no other option but to turn to her father to call The Arrow for help. The Arrow and Laurel meet on a rooftop (but you can sure as hell feel the tension between them) and Laurel discusses her theories with The Arrow. He's at first reluctant to believe her, as he has publicly supported the man she is accusing of heinous crimes.
 
   
At Queen Consolidated Oliver, Felicity and Diggle discuss Laurel's claim that Sebastian is really not what he seems. They wonder if she isn't just setting another trap for him.

Laurel runs into the Arrow at her apartment, he asks her to come with him to the [[Starling City Archives|City Archives]]. They break into the Archives, but Laurel is shocked to see that Sebastian's file has been cleaned, courtesy of Slade. Laurel returns to her apartment to find Officer Daily waiting for her. He arrests her after he finds the pills she's been using.

Roy has become very distant lately because of his new-found powers, but he has to tell someone, so he tells and shows Sin. She is shocked at first, but wants to watch his power in action. Sin dresses as a prostitute as bait for the Starling Slasher, a serial killer who murders prostitutes with a dagger. Sure enough, the man picks her up and take her to an empty car lot. Just as he is about to kill Sin, Roy rips the car door off and starts beating him. Sin realizes that if she can't stop Roy, he will kill the man. She intervenes but Roy tosses her aside, though comes to his senses after seeing what he has done. Roy takes the man to the hospital and freaks out on Thea once she shows up. Roy begins to cry once out of sight of Thea and Sin.

Oliver and Laurel return to her apartment to find the man in the skull mask. Before Oliver can fight back, he is knocked out while Laurel is kidnapped. Oliver later wakes up and learns that Laurel was taken to the Starling Cannery due to the red paint on her apartment walls. When Laurel wakes up in the cannery, she is taunted by a man in the skull mask. As he begins choking her, Oliver arrived and engages the man in the skull mask.

Oliver tells Felicity and Diggle that he will not be inclined to believe Laurel in the future because in his eyes, she was wrong about his friend, and the Arrow could have paid Sebastian an unpleasant visit.

Thea informs Oliver of Roy's actions and Oliver decides to confront him.
