A lot happened in the latest episode of The Flash, including not one but two versions of Eobard Thawne, but even that didn’t compare to the unexpected scene with John Diggle. David Ramsey’s character bopped around many Arrowverse shows with his mystery box for the past couple of years, so his appearance wasn’t necessarily surprising. What was surprising is that the box storyline actually resolved in this episode, but now that it’s done, I’m disappointed. In what some might call a downer year for the Arrowverse considering all the cancellations, the resolution of John Diggle’s green glowing box that he found in Arrow’s series finale was yet another letdown for me. Here’s what happened and why I’m so upset with what we learned on The Flash.
How The Flash Finally Resolved Diggle’s Box Storyline
After Barry had a conversation with Eobard Thawne at his prison cell located in A.R.G.U.S.’ Lian Yu facility, John Diggle appeared and revealed to Thawne that, after consulting some of the Arrowverse’s greatest minds, he realized that he might need the help of someone from centuries beyond. Thawne confirmed to Diggle that his instincts were spot on, and he knew exactly what the former Arrow character had to do to reopen the box.
