Lance i think suspects it, but does not want to know the secret.
Though i am wondering. With the showcasing of oli's second (back up) lair he goes to, to spend time alone, i am wondering if that was thrown in as a means to show the group has a fall back site since now the primary one is compromized. Both with slade knowing where it is, and now with Thea being evicted from the night club and surrounding factory (where the arrow cave hides)..
I wonder who owns the new location and how easy it would be to follow the money.
I have been wondering for weeks why they didn't immediately abandon the club after Slade's breach. That was so idiotic! Of course much of what is happening is kind of idiotic, but I love it. I mean they are really making Oliver not look too bright. I can't believe they are honestly writing this that Oliver thinks Slade wants to kill him. If there was one more person who needed to die and Oliver was it why wouldn't he have just killed him after he killed Moira?! And the fact that Oliver said that Slade had already taken everything from him was sooooooooooooooo ridiculous. How about the two people you just said that line to? How about Laurel? How about Thea? How about Sarah, who obviously seems to be Slade's final target? Not only did this episode make Oliver look really dumb, but I was very surprised how the team fell for it too. Time after time Slade has proven that his goal has been to torture Oliver by ruining his life, not killing him.
Well anyway, I wish they could make most of how this show is going now last through another season, but I doubt it. They'll end this season on a cliffhanger, settle something in the first few episodes of next season, and then return to Days of Our Lives with arrows for most of the next season.
I'm starting to think the Suicide Squad is going to show up in the next two episodes as support from ARGUS. Lots of people wonder whether Merlin is coming back and I would hope he is. Depends on Barrowmen's schedule.
I'm also really itching to see The Flash! I mean, we saw him in the mid-season finale and now we don't get any of the pay off?
Speaking of which, The last episode of the season would have been The Flash episode/pilot, right? Since they let Flash have his own pilot greenlit, then that gave Arrow's showrunners an extra episode to hopefully flesh out this finale.
Otherwise, I imagined this episode would have been the first of a two parter.
Mrs Isabel Rochev devalue the shares the Queens holds in their company so they were valueless, took control and she kick Thea out of the place. Not that I suspect she was paying rent or anything of the like to Queens industry anyway, but I am pretty sure the clubs is more valuable than an empty factory.
They are going to need the Suicide Squad and substantial number special forces solders to take down Slade Army.I'm starting to think the Suicide Squad is going to show up in the next two episodes as support from ARGUS.
Plus they need Roy Smash to be in a cooperative mood, only then do they stand a chance against slade army, and even then I would still give the upper hand Slade.
The only way they can take back control of the company is through a massive cash injection to acquire more shares. I got a feeling Oliver will be asking his Russian mafia friends for the a favour in the form of a large check or may be Walter Steele, banker pals will come to the rescue again. Alternatively Felicity could just steal the money from the local criminal fraternity not like they can got to the police and report that their illegal swiss bank accounts have been emptied. It possible that Argust could use their government contacts to get Rochev and what she did illegal, wanting to keep Queens industry applied science technology in the hands of someone they trust. Not that Arrow will go into detail they will just have someone walk on an tell the audience that Oliver back in control, who cares about the details of how he back in control.

As for Felicity taking the money from criminals, 1) Having a Swiss bank account is not illegal, using it to avoid paying US taxes is. 2) Felicity and Oliver would still need documentation detailing where the money came from, otherwise it just looks suspicious.
I doubt this will be an issue the writers will gloss over. I imagine less high-tech and a more bare bones operation from Team Arrow in Season 3. Possibly flirting with the idea to be an official section of ARGUS just to keep going...
For the last few weeks the only conclusion of this storyline I can think of surrounds the old saying of "Enemy of my enemy is my friend".
Barrowman was on a talk show over here not long ago and dropped a few hints about still being in Arrow (this was before the trial episode reveal though), so I predict he will come back and fight alongside Oliver to defeat Slade.
Just a sidebar, it seems to me that they could have already started the process of the Queen's getting the company back through Laurel and legal avenues. I just think this is TV and they could have taken it up legally. They could have pointed out that Isabel took advantage of them while she had temporary emergency control while they were dealing with a tragedy. It probably wouldn't work in the real world, but this is TV.
The board saw Isabel as a capable and reliable CEO and chose to make her permanent.
True, Laurel could be key to getting it back. BUT maybe when Oli 'de-miraku's her, he might get to have her hand control back over.
