Arrow star Stephen Amell has revealed that Earth-16 is the future of his show's universe. Star City: The Future Under Communis, a new installation at the Nottingham Contemporary in England, puts the spotlight on the survival of superhero sidekick Oliver Queen as he struggles in a new society.


Around 2031, Grant Wilson started donning the mantle of Deathstroke, like his father, and built an army which he used to attack Star City during the so-called Uprising. Team Arrow confronted the villains but the latters managed to kill John Diggle and Quentin Lance and forced Felicity Smoak to leave the city: the new Deathstroke then defeated Oliver Queen, outed him as the Green Arrow and cut his left arm. Grant's gang conquered the city while Oliver was forced to go underground, refuging in a destroyed Arrowcave.

We begin nine months in the future at a secluded and picturesque house in the middle of the forest. Bamford’s camera smoothly glides through the halls as a woman’s shrieks of pain are heard in a distant room. Eventually, the camera enters the upstairs bedroom, and we see Oliver comforting Felicity through her home birth. And from here, there are some questions: Why did Oliver and Felicity decide to have their baby in this secret home instead of at a hospital? Does the situation in the present get that bad within the next few months that they’re forced to go into hiding even before Mia is born? Obviously, we know that their plan to save Star City fails, but who knew it would happen so quickly. (Source: ew.com)


But, it’s not all bad news because something good comes out of all of this: a rapprochement between mother and daughter. In the wake of all the action, Felicity apologizes to Mia for everything and Mia admits that her hatred of vigilantes comes from her hatred of her mother. That’s starting to change now as Mia understands it must’ve been hard to have the city turn on both her and Oliver(!!!). Mia asks Felicity if her desire to take down Galaxy One has anything to do with Oliver, but Felicity says no. It turns out she wants to destroy Galaxy One because she created ARCHER, which we already suspected, and now regrets it and wants to stop Galaxy One from gaining too much power when it goes global. In the words of Ultron, we always create the thing we dread.

While Mia hangs back to argue with Connor, with whom she’s still pissed for lying, William and Felicity reunite with Dinah, Zoe, and Roy, all of whom show up to help out, and dive further into Galaxy One to find the bombs. Connor, who confesses that he genuinely cares for her, eventually convinces Mia to join the rest of the team in disarming the bombs. Unfortunately, it turns out that Galaxy One has already placed the bombs and they’re set to go off during some Glades celebration in 38 minutes. Luckily, though, Rene, who found out that there wasn’t an evacuation plan for Star City, saw the light and is now going to help them stop the Undertaking 2.0. (Source: ew.com)
