He joined the United States Army and served in Afghanistan, where Ted discovered that Qadir trying to bribe Diggle into helping him and told him to shut up. Soon after, John noted him for saving Qadir's life.
Later on, Malcolm Merlyn found out and coerced him to contribute to the Undertaking or risk his illegal activities being known to the public, resulting in his name being on the List.
Robberies in Starling City
In 2013, John joined the Blackhawks to monitor Ted. Ultimately, Ted revealed to John that he had taken his former sister-in-law, Carly Diggle, hostage and that he had indeed instigated the robberies in Starling City. Ted was killed by an arrow shot through his chest by the Hood.
Ted was also arrogant to the point he believes that he could control his former friend, John Diggle. Howvever, this ultimately backfired, as he underestimated John's morals and honor.
