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?
How did they escape the island?
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.
