As the saying goes, "there's no rest for the wicked," which certainly seems to be the case in regards to Damien Darhk's Rubicon plan on Arrow . Despite the fact that his ark has been destroyed, this guy is ready and willing to do whatever it takes to burn everything down to the ground... even if it means taking himself along with it. But will Darhk successfully destroy Star City before Team Arrow can intervene? Considering the fact that he's got nothing to lose and a whole lot of power, it's definitely not out of the question. I mean, Felicity's hacking skills are impressive and allowed her to regain control of Rubicon, but now that the enemy has just burst through her door, there's no telling how things will escalate from here.
Granted, it's not as if Star City hasn't been on the brink of destruction before now. In fact, Oliver seems to have to save his city every year. However, it's a little different this time, given that Darhk has actual mystical powers that make him immune to bullets and arrows. I mean, how do you defeat something like that? Of course, I'm pretty sure our gang is going to be able to find some supernatural loophole in time for next Wednesday's finale (hopefully), but that doesn't mean there won't be some sacrifices in the process.
I doubt Arrow will throw another major death our way since we're still recovering from the loss of Laurel. (RIP forever.) But that doesn't mean that Star City is safe from Darhk's wrath by any means. Just imagine if Oliver was unable to save the place he swore to protect? He's always making proclamations about who has failed this city... what if Season 4 ends with him doing just that? Star City is in more danger than its ever been before thanks to Rubicon. Let's just hope Darhk isn't able to get his hands back on such a powerful weapon.
