Lyla: When I was in Afghanistan, my unit got sent out on patrol on a day I drew base duty. It was a routine op, we'd done it a hundred times before. Only this time, there was an IED in the road. None of them made it back. I used to lay in bed at night asking myself, why them? Why not me? And, I made every deal I could think of with any god I thought might listen. Laurel: And, did it work? Lyla: Not exactly.
Oliver: What the hell happened back there? The Monitor: A herald of what is to come. An entire world erased from existence. Oliver: Where's my mother? Where's, where's Tommy? Where's, where's Rene? Where's Dinah? The Monitor: They are no more. Oliver: Did you hurt John and Laurel? The Monitor: They are alive, and nearby. But, now you know that if we fail to stop the coming Crisis, what you witnessed will occur on infinite Earths across the expansive time.
