Early Life

Canary Season 1

In Big Game, she has been working to protect the innocent for six months as the new head of Team Arrow. She feels tremendous guilt for Felicity's murder by Blake Reed and attempts to stop him herself to no avail. Reed ends up killing Amanda Waller before he himself is killed in a duel by a vengeful Oliver. She and Oliver have "grief sex". Afterward, he passes out due to being shot by a neurotoxin-filled bullet and Laurel transports him to the hospital.

In the neurotoxin-induced dream during What Might Have Been, she and Oliver are married and expecting their first child. Dream!Laurel eventually dies in childbirth. In the real world, she is by Oliver's bedside when he wakes up. She is accepting as they discuss his need to be a better man but cuts their conversation short to tend to Quentin.
