Felicity had set up shop in the motel room. Diggle staying behind as protection. The others were currently on Rays plane. Heading to Nanda Parbat.

"Okay. ETA 15 minutes." Felicity said into the comm. Ray nodded and squeezed Saras hand before kissing her temple. If Roy or Thea noticed, they didn't say anything.

"Okay. We clear on the plan?" Felicity asked. Everyone on the plane nodded. "Yep." Ray supplied for all of them. "Okay. Good. I'll stay on comm as long as I can. Not sure what WiFi they have out there." She said with a small smirk.

"May the force be with us." Ray said with a smirk. Sara rolled her eyes and swatted the back of his head. "Ow." he said with a teasing pout. She just rolled her eyes again


Oliver was led back to his room by Nyssa. who had a strange look in her eyes. almost haunted. "Are you alright?" He asked her. he didn't want to care about her. but he couldn't help it. she seemed like a good person under her persona.

"Fine." She said simply. glaring at him before turning and walking out of the room and down the hall. Oliver just sighed and lay down on his back on the bed. his thoughts drifting to Felicity.

Nyssa walked down the hall away from Olivers room before she finally let her tears fall. How could she have done that? she killed a child. surely her father had a reason... but why hadn't he told her? she felt sick.

she continued to walk until a loud crash sounded and the ground shook. Several league members ran down the hall past her. She looked aorund with confusion. what was going on? She was about to pull one of the members aside and ask before Talia ran up to her.

"Olivers friends have decided to try and rescue him. Let us defend our father, sister." Talia said before handing Nyssa her bow and arrows and running after the other members. Nyssa swallowed hard and looked down at the weapons in her hands.


"Ray! Duck!" Ray immediately ducked as Sara threw an arrow into a league member behind him. "Thanks." He said with a small smirk as he stood up. "Don't thank me yet." She said with a small smile as they ran down the hall.

Sara took out a few more guards as Ray worked on unlocking the door to Connors room. When he finally got it open, he quickly walked in to see Connor hiding behind the bed. "Hi. I'm Ray Palmer. I'm here to rescue you."


"Ollie!" "Speedy!?" Oliver and Thea collided in each others arms as they pulled each other into a tight hug. She handed Oliver his Arrow gear she and Roy had brought. Oliver smiled and quickly put everything on as Thea filled him in on the plan.

As they ran down the hall, they (literally) ran into Nyssa. Thea immediately raised her bow but Oliver stopped her with his hand. Nyssa took a deep breath and spoke quickly. "You were right. I can help you stop him."

"how can we trust you?" Roy asked, glaring at her. "because i know how to kill him." She said softly.


Sara and Ray got Connor and were running back to the plane when Barry showed up. "Finally." Sara said with a small smile as she handed Connor off to Barry. "Take him to Felicity." "On it." Barry said with a small smile as he picked up Connor and ran.

Sara started to run back down the hall before Ray grabbed her arm. "We might not make it out of here." he said with a sad smile. Sara gave the same smile back before gently pulling his face to hers, kissing him gently before they ran back down the hall. shoulder to shoulder.


Felicity brightened immediately when the familiar whoosh of Barry sped through the motel room. She had lost contact with the team as soon as they entered Nanda Parbat airspace. Diggle jumped and mumbled about heart attacks before Barry became visible, Connor in his arms.

"Connor!" she said, smiling brightly with tears in her eyes as she pulled him into her arms. he pressed his face to her shoulder and it was soon wet with tears as she held him close.


Oliver, Thea, Roy, Ray, and Sara all met up in a hallway. Sara and Oliver shared a hug. and Oliver politely nodded at Ray. "Did you get Connor out?" he asked quickly. Sara nodded. "Barry's got him."

Oliver nodded and let out a breath. "Good." Nyssa took the silence that followed as a cue to step out of the shadows. Ray and Sara immediately glared at her. but Oliver held up a hand. "It's alright. i trust her." Nyssa looked at him with slight surprise, but quickly got back down to bussiness.

"I can help you kill Ra's." She told them all. Intentionally leaving out the part about Ra's being her father. "Well that's good." Thea said honestly before looking at Oliver then back to Nyssa. "Where's my father?" Nyssa looked at Thea in understanding before pointing down the hall. "That way. first door on your right. there'll be guards though."

"You're not going alone." Oliver said quickly. looking at Thea. "I'll go." Ray spoke up. he understood Olivers need to kill Ra's, and also to keep his family safe. "I will go as well." Nyssa said. turning to look at Oliver. "If for some reason your plan goes wrong. I can't have Ra's know i was involved." Oliver nodded in understanding. "If it succeeds, you will have earned my respect." She continued, looking around at all of them. "If it succeeds... That's comforting..." Ray joked dryly.


"Dad!" Thea called as she ran up to Malcolms side. Ray and Nyssa took out the remaining guards as Thea helped her unconscious Father from his chains. "T-thea?" he said softly. his head lulling to the side. "it's me Daddy." Thea said softly. Holding his head up as his eyes slowly fluttered open.

"I'm gonna save you." She said soflty. looking down at him. he smiled as best as he could. "Thanks. i think."


Sara, Oliver, and Roy ran down the hall into Ra's' throne room where they all slowed to a stop. Ra's was standing in the middle of the room. Talia behind him to the right. "You don't have to help him." Oliver said to Talia. hoping her could turn her as Nyssa had been turned.

"nice try." she spat back at him. Oliver swallowed. Okay. that clearly wasn't going to work.


Thea and Ray both supported Malcolm until he was steady enough to walk himself as they walked back down the hall. Planning on meeting up with Oliver and everyone else.

they took out a few guards on the way before rounding the corner. spotting the entrance to the throne room just up ahead.


"I'm trying to save you." Ra's said. focusing on Oliver. "This," Ra's gestured around the room at Roy and Sara. "Won't last. it will be taken away. And nothing will stop it. You gave up your chance at a normal life when you put on that hood."

"That's where you're wrong Ra's." Oliver responded. "Am I?" Ra's asked. "I guess we'll have to see how this pans out then. For now, goodbye Oliver." With that, Ra's turned to walk from the room.

"You're not going anywhere snake." Sara spat at Ra's. Glaring hard at him as she launched herself toward him to Olivers horror. That was not part of the plan.

"Oh. I think i am." Ras said softly, pushing his sword through Saras chest with an almost regretful expression. Sara gagged as her eyes widened. "Sara!" Ray yelled as he ran into the room. Followed by Thea and Nyssa.

Sara couldn't respond as she fell forward. Rays arms catching her before she hit the ground. "No, no, no, no." he said as he held her close, a hand going to the wound over her heart, desperately trying to stop the bleeding.

"S-stay with me okay?" Ray said. Forcing a small smile as his voice broke. Tears forming in his eyes. Saras unfocused eyes met his. A small smirk on her lips. "Y-yes sir."

Oliver looked down at Sara with a heavy heart and tears in his eyes before focusing his rage on Ra's. He saw Roy sneaking behind Ra's and decided to try and give Roy the best chance he could. "Hey!" Oliver called. Making Ra's turn to look at him. "You don't get to hurt my family and get away with it!"

"I never wanted to hurt anyone!" Ra's yelled. "I wanted to save you! I wanted-" he was cut off with a small sound of pain as Roy stabbed an arrow through Ra's' back. Ra's coughed and chocked on his own blood as he fell foreward.

Oliver glared hard at him and strode foreward to Ra's' side, picking up Ra's' fallen sword with his hands. He knelt down at his side. "I'm sorry." He said softly before driving the sword through Ra's' chest. Ra's gagged as his eyes slowly closed and the life left him completely.

Oliver pulled the sword out and backed away. Letting the sword and Ra's' body fall to the ground. He looked up at Roy before turning and starting to go over to Sara.

Roy started to follow before he saw Talia out of the corner of his eyes. She had an arrow notched and it was aimed at Olivers back. "Oliver!" Roy yelled as he jumped and pushed Oliver out of the way. Oliver grunted as he hit the floor before turning to look at Roy. His eyes widening . "Roy!" he called, but it was to late. The Arrow meant for Oliver was firmly planted in Roys back.

"No!" He and Thea both yelled at the same time as they both rushed over to Roys body, Thea catching it before it fell to the ground and Oliver kneeling in between Sara and Roy. tears streaming down his face.

he barely saw Nyssa attack her sister. Their blades the only sound in the room as Oliver felt like his world was crashing down.
