"Our partnership with the force is not working."
"Then we have to find a way to make it work. Compromise, do whatever you have to do because if you want a new future for this baby of yours, it won't be come by doing the same thing we used to do. We have to - We have to be something else... Something better."
Oliver Queen and John Diggle

Another crime syndicate is clearly trying new medications out on clueless individuals, which winds up killing them. The SCPD gets notified of the killings and starts to research. As long as Team Arrow is working for the police office, Mayor Pollard doesn't need them wearing their vigilante attire so they're relegated an unusual SWAT-like suit.

The group finds intel on the team and they bust them during the middle of an arms/synthetic mission. After Dinah and Oliver quarrel over how to handle the situation, the entirety of the villains wind up escaping. Back at the precinct, Oliver battles with the official that took lead in the field.

They discover the pioneer of the gathering is James Midas, the owner of a nearby pharmaceutical organization. Oliver ignores requests and approaches Midas soon thereafter dressed as the Green Arrow. After Midas confesses to utilizing synthetic concoctions in slugs, Oliver places him under arrest.

Pollard arranges the police office to discharge Midas the following day after Oliver confesses to draping the person over a tank of hydrochloric corrosive. This causes Dinah to get resentful about Oliver's disobedience.

Oliver and Felicity meet with Diggle at the recently reestablished Team Arrow lair. The entire group collects there — while Oliver and Dinah apologize to one another — presently and Felicity reveals she's been following Midas' DNA all through the city utilizing lawful methods.

The group unites on a distribution center and take out the entirety of Midas' men. With plentiful proof, the remainder of the SCPD plunge in and capture him. After the incident, the SCPD turns Team Arrow into a rare team that can legitimately work outside of the police office.

Oliver and Felicity at first agree to not tell anybody about the pregnancy, but slip up and wind up telling Diggle.

Bronze Tiger/Ben Turner calls Laurel to the jail, saying that Ricardo Diaz has been murdered. He says he realizes who did it, but won't reveal the information until Laurel gets him out of jail. After Laurel won't, Ben requests to see his child instead and she masterminds a meetup between the two in the prison. Turner reveals the new Green Arrow is the person who murdered Diaz. Laurel tracks down Emiko and confronts her about Diaz's demise, but Emiko reveals she knows Laurel isn't her Earth-1 doppelganger.

Dinah's sonic powers only work sporadically after her recent neck injury.

In the flashforwards, William and Mia have a go at buying a recording device for $500 from an obscure back-end entryway seller; however, they can't manage the cost of it. In the end, they take the player and play the tape by itself. It's a list of directions that Felicity needs them to give the remainder of the group. The two ignore Felicity's orders to leave Star City and instead follow the coordinates to the Glades.
