by at . Comments

Has the whole Cayden James plot been wearing you down?

If so, we are happy to report that Arrow Season 6 Episode 13 gifted viewers with a whole lot of twists. 

Cayden and his team decided to detonate the bomb to destroy Star City at midnight. This was in response to Vigilante turning against them. 

We took a trip to the past and found out that Cayden was working as a hacker, and it was getting in the way of his relationship with his son. 

He was missing his son's basketball games, and disaster struck when the failing father was whisked away by ARGUS agents. The heartbreaking thing about it was Cayden later learned his son was murdered.

Former Helix worker, Alena unmasked the murderer and confirmed he was none other than Karl Iscove. The trouble about all of it was that he was dead. 

Oliver took the real footage to Cayden who was shocked, but he told Oliver and Diggle to round up Anatoly, Diaz and Black Siren. 

Oliver managed to get the team together and got them to go after the three villains. 

Black Siren later admitted to being the one to order Owen's murder, but Cayden seemed to think she was bluffing. 

Dinah was on hand to fight with Black Siren. She was still mad because Siren murdered Vincent on Arrow Season 6 Episode 12.

Quentin appeared in the nick of time, but Dinah stole his gun and shot Black Siren. Afterwards, Quentin continued to have hope that there was some of Laurel inside the villain. 

Thus, he kidnapped her and took her well away from everyone. Will this end well for anyone, or will it all be a little too much to handle?

Elsewhere, Cayden was finally arrested and taken into custody. He chatted with Oliver and seemed like he genuinely wanted to help take down the others. 

Oliver agreed to let Cayden visit his son's grave because he understood how difficult it was to be apart from a family member.

However, Ricardo Diaz later made his way into where Cayden was being held and admitted that he was the one who killed Owen and that he took great pride in it. 

Ricardo then said that Star City was going to be taken over and that he would be the one in power. Before Cayden got a chance to respond, the new villain stabbed him to death. 

Who would have thought we would be losing the villain this early in the season?
