It gets worse for Tommy in the season one finale. He finds out the truth about his father, is made to listen to his mother's final message, and gets knocked out cold for trying to stop Malcolm from executing the Undertaking. But the worst part is he dies after saving Laurel when the second device goes off and starts destroying the eastern half of the Glades, and Ollie can't do a damn thing to save him.
- And this is after a season of hinting that the first season would be his Start of Darkness. It's also the first time we've seen post-Island Ollie truly break down. He can handle his emotions about Laurel — it's what helped him get through the island. And of course he feels nothing for the bad guys. But Tommy...he's just an innocent who got caught up in bad things. And he's his best friend.
Ollie: It should have been me. Tommy, open your eyes.
