Roy and Laurel point out that the team could use some help to save the innocents of The Glades, but Felicity  is adamantly against it. They look to Diggle to make the final decision. Meanwhile, the flashbacks chronicle Malcolm's descent from kind-hearted father and husband to cold-blooded killer after the murder of his wife.   

The Flash S01E12 "Crazy for You" 

Caitlin  decides that she and Barry  need to move on from Ronnie and Iris and find new loves so she takes him for a night out at the local karaoke bar. Caitlin doesn't have any luck making a love connection but Barry meets Linda Park, a sports reporter for the Central City Picture News, and asks her out on a date. When Barry tells Iris he has a date, Iris is surprised by her reaction. Meanwhile, Cisco considers Hartley's (guest star Andy Mientus) dangerous offer and the team searches for Shawna, a meta-human with teleportation powers, who just busted her boyfriend Clay out of Iron Heights. When Henry guest star snoops around in an attempt to help Joe  and Barry solve the crime, he ends up in the infirmary after getting roughed up by inmates. 

Person Of Interest S03E13 "M.I.A."   

Root and Reese travel to the remote upstate town of Maple in search of Shaw, with Finch theorizing that she may be in a truck he traced earlier. The two find a truck with a stretcher and medical equipment inside, leading them to a doctor. The doctor says that he was anonymously consulted for the job, but didn't call the police since Maple has a history of job losses for those who ask too many questions. He himself was fired from his former workplace, which is run by Maple's mayor Leslie Thompson.   Root and Reese realize that Samaritan is experimenting with Maple as an "ant farm" used to study human nature, and is manipulating events by giving people false identities. After kidnapping and interrogating Thompson, they learn that she too is one of these people. Thompson leads them to the factory where Shaw was last seen, but Reese and Root instead find a secretary from the stock exchange instead - she is one of many innocent people who Samaritan operatives are experimenting on with neural implants.   

Fusco and Dani Silva (from "Point of Origin") investigate the Machine's next number, one Arthur Weiss, a seemingly unsuspecting citizen revealed as a freelance assassin. They lure him into Silva's home and engage in a fight, with Silva shooting him to save Fusco, thus making her first kill. Meanwhile, Root and Reese return to New York and the Machine sends them a coded message telling them to stop looking for Shaw. Elsewhere, Shaw is revealed to be alive and in the captivity of Greer.
