"We Fall" is the eleventh episode of the sixth season of Arrow, and the one-hundred-twenty-sixth episode overall. It aired on January 25, 2018.


Cayden James ups the ante by launching his plan to take control of every aspect of the city. Despite the scope of Cayden's plan, Oliver is determined to foil it with just the Original Team Arrow - and without the aid of Rene, Dinah or Curtis. But things get complicated when William is endangered as a result of Cayden's handiwork.[1]




  • This episode, along with the previous episode, forms the saying "Divided We Fall".
  • When Curtis suggests that they call their new team the "Outsiders", Dinah states "That was a good book". This is a reference to the S. E. Hinton novel The Outsiders.
    • It is also a reference to the superhero group in the DC comics known as the Outsiders who do not fit the norms of the "mainstream" superhero community, in this case Team Arrow.
  • Rene compares situation in Star City to Escape from Detroit at which point Curtis Holt says that he's not sure whether to correct Rene or embrace his attempt at referencing John Carpenter's Escape dilogy which includes titles Escape from New York and Escape from L.A.. Detroit was nowhere to be seen in the franchise with proposed third movie having a working title Escape from Earth.
  • This takes place exactly a year after Dinah joined the team; Oliver, Diggle and Felicity all agree that Oliver cannot have been responsible for the death of Cayden James' son as collateral damage in a fight one year ago that day as on that date he was in Hub City trying to recruit her.
  • Cayden James uses the name "Ben Gale" which is a mix of his aliases on the TV "LOST," that being, Benjamin Linus, and Henry Gale.
