Why haven’t they explained how Arrow and his team escaped the island at end of season 5?

Throughout the whole of season 6 they haven’t mentioned anything about this.

Did I miss this being covered?

    Are you asking how they survived the explosion or how did they get off the island? Getting off the island is not hard, it's been done dozens of times.

1 Answer 1



How did they escape the island?

By boat...

Oliver: There's an Argus supply ship on the eastern shore.

Felicity: That's on the other side of the island.

Oliver: Slade knows where it is.


How did they escape the explosions?

They took shelter in the crippled plane...mostly

Curtis: What are we gonna do now?

Diggle: What about the plane?

Rene: Thought you said you couldn't get it fixed.

Dinah: For shielding us from the blast, - it should work just fine.

Quentin: It's not like there's a whole - lot of other options.

Of course, not everyone escaped unscathed but surviving doesn't really seem to have been that much of an issue.
