Ray apologizes to Amaya for not telling her about Kuasa being her granddaughter, but she said, Ray, that she understands that he was just protecting the timeline and she would have done the same thing. Ray offers to tell Amaya everything, but Amaya says to, Ray, that the less she knows is, the better. Sara is in a coma, and Zari find a loophole to help Helen and takes Helen to the island of Themyscira where there are no men, and she can live in peace.

This was an exciting and funny episode, I am but confuse about Kuasa situation, but I guess I will get it eventually. Sara beating Darhk in a dual she is such a bad ass, and I am curious is Eleanor from the future and was she the little girl team Arrow save last season. I would give this episode an 8 was enjoyable.
