"Collision Course" is the fourteenth episode of the sixth season of Arrow, and the one-hundred-twenty-ninth episode overall. It aired on March 1, 2018.


Oliver, Diggle and Felicity disagree with Dinah, Curtis and Rene on how to handle Black Siren. The two teams face off and a fight ensues.[1]


  • Wild Dog refers to Mr. Terrific as "Mr. T", saying that he "(pities) these (fools)", referencing the actor and retired professional wrestler of the same name and his catchphrase, "I pity the fool".
  • This episode shares a similar premise with the Marvel movie Captain America: Civil War where two vigilante teams fight over a disagreement on how to handle an adversary of theirs with both sides through their moral reasons and preserving justice, compelling emotionally the decision on whose side to pick.
  • The alias that Laurel Lance uses, "Siu Jerk Jai" is an approximation of Cantonese for "Little Bird" which was also the nickname for Black Canary in the comics.
  • Quentin mentions Hunter Zolomon, Adrian Chase and Cayden James as father-figures that Laurel has taken on. This is the first time that Laurel's time as Zoom's lieutenant is mentioned on Arrow.
  • After their violent/brutal confrontation (resulting in Rene being put in critical condition) Team Arrow's friendship and alliance with New Team Arrow has ended on bad terms; due to the fact that Dinah tried to kill Laurel in cold blood, twice, as well as Curtis hurt John by using his arm implant and Oliver hurting Rene (although it is very likely that Oliver didn't intentionally mean to put him in a critical condition).
  • The title refers to the fight between Team Arrow and New Team Arrow.
