Billionaire Playboy Oliver Queen (Creator/StephenAmell), missing and presumed dead for five years after his family's yacht, ''The Queen's Gambit'' sinks in a violent storm in the Pacific, is discovered alive on a remote island in the South China Sea. When he returns home to Starling City, his mother Moira (Creator/SusannaThompson), younger sister Thea (Creator/WillaHolland), and best friend Tommy (Creator/ColinDonnell) welcome him home, but they sense Oliver has been changed by his ordeal on the island and the losses sustained in the sinking of his family's yacht, in which six other people, including Queen's father, Robert Queen and his girlfriend, Sara Lance (Creator/CaityLotz [[note]] [[TheOtherMarty Jacqueline McInnes Wood in the Pilot]][[/note]]). Oliver keeps quiet about the man he’s become, as he desperately wants to make amends for the actions he took as an arrogant, unfaithful playboy. Most particularly, he seeks reconciliation with his former girlfriend, Sara's sister [[ComicBook/BlackCanary Laurel Lance]] (Creator/KatieCassidy), who at the time of the sinking he'd been cheating on her with.

As Oliver at first tries to play the role of the wealthy, carefree and careless philanderer he used to be, he secretly creates the crime-fighting persona of the Hood – a vigilante – to right the wrongs of his family, fight the ills of society, and restore Starling City to its former glory. In the beginning, his reasons for seeking justice for Star City stems from a confession apparently made by his late father, who before his death informed Oliver that their family's immense wealth had been forged on the suffering of others. In his mission, Oliver gradually seeks aid from others who join him in his endeavor, the first being his bodyguard, John Diggle (Creator/DavidRamsey), not long afterwards followed by Felicity Smoak (Creator/EmilyBettRickards), a Queen Consolidated I.T. specialist, and Roy Harper (Creator/ColtonHaynes), a street kid and Thea's boyfriend who needs guidance – while carefully concealing the secret identity he turns to under cover of darkness. However, Laurel’s father, Detective Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne), is determined to arrest the vigilante operating in his city.

As the show progresses, Oliver and his comrades frequently face off against both personal enemies and those who pose a threat to the city Oliver swore to protect, making amends with some and burning bridges with others along the way. His desire to honor his father's memory is further compounded by the death of his best friend Tommy, who is killed in an earthquake at the end of the first season, whose memory he also wishes to honor.
