in Fiction by

Warning: Spoilers for Arrow and Olicity ahead! Turn back now if you haven’t seen the first half of season 5.

Here’s our complete Olicity Watch for 4×07, Brotherhood: Recap/Review: Brotherhood is the theme in general this week, as Diggle openly struggles with the knowledge that his brother Andy is alive, probably evil, and has kept his existence a secret from his family for the past eight years.

There must be some sort of plot afoot to get people like me to watch WWE’s SummerSlam. I am not a wrestling fan, even if one or two inhabit my house on occasion.
