The action moves to Blüdhaven as Diaz and Black Siren (Katie Cassidy) go to meet with a criminal organization called The Quadrant. As much as Diaz wanted to take over Star City, he sees joining the Quadrant as a chance to build an empire. And while he sees what he's done so far as earning him a seat at the table, the Quadrant seems to be far more ruthless and not very open to new members.

So far, Diaz has been in complete control, manipulating both Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) and Cayden James (Michael Emerson) to do everything he wanted and clear the path for him to take control of the city. But now he's on a different turf and it will be interesting to see what happens if they say "No."

Arrow airs tonight at 9 p.m. ET on the CW.
