Synopsis

As the Arrow battles a mob of Blood acolytes underground, Diggle finds himself captured by Brother Blood himself![1]

Plot

In the sewers beneath St. Walkers, The Arrow struggled against the many followers of Brother Blood as they overwhelmed him in numbers attempting to subdue him. Elsewhere, two of Blood's teenage followers drag an unconscious John Diggle through the tunnels of the church, excitedly taking him to Brother Blood.

In the room ahead, Abel questioned Caleb Green to whether he recognized one of Slade Wilson's many Mirakuru soldiers, citing that he believed that the source of their power was inside their blood, and believed they could give the same abilities to Caleb.

Back at the sewer's center, The Arrow managed to escape Blood's followers holding him before Brother Blood could unmask him, kicking him in the face, and throwing a smoke dart to mask his escape. While running through the tunnels, Oliver witnesses Blood's followers dragging a captured Diggle.

After the Arrow's escape, Blood commanded his followers to find him at all costs. He then returned to his personal study, where his two followers presented Diggle to him. After commanding the two to sit and tie him down in a chair, he commanded them to leave him. As the two left, John questioned to how Brother Blood could be alive, mistaking him for Sebastian Blood, Blood then removed his mask revealing himself to be none other than Clinton Hogue. After the two argued over each other's intentions, Blood questioned as to who Diggle was working for.

Hogue was then subdued by the Arrow, who John criticized as being late. The two then made their way out of the study, back into the sewer's tunnels searching for a way to escape. While doing so, Diggle and Oliver run into the group of Blood's followers, ordered to find the Arrow. After using another smoke dart to quickly escape, the two climb a metal laddering out of the sewer, only to find The Huntress waiting for them.

Suicide Squad: Crisis in Kahndaq

At the A.R.G.U.S.' headquarters, Amanda Waller discussed Khem-Adam with several other A.R.G.U.S. agents, citing that he was the worst kind of religious extremist. After asking how far along Agent Lyla Michaels was in her pregnancy, Waller announced to the agents she was sending Task Force X to the Ahk-Ton desert to kill Adam. This lead Michaels to question when they were going to rescue the girls being held hostage, to which Waller explained that killing Adam would free the girls, as Adam had become a symbol and once he was killed, his entire movement would crumble.
