Recap: Arrow S 1 E 4 An Innocent Man
Back to Recap Page.

In the aftermath of last week’s reveal, Diggle resigns and is replaced. At home, Oliver hears about Peter Declan’s upcoming execution for murdering his wife, Camille. Once Oliver realizes that Camille worked for Jason Brodeur, a name on the list, he investigates and finds that she planned to turn in Brodeur for dumping toxic waste. Laurel comes home to find Arrow asking for help in proving that Declan was framed. Later, Arrow coerces Matt Istook, Camille’s supervisor, to give up the incriminating file. Arrow gives the file to Laurel, but the judge will not delay the execution. While forcing Brodeur to confess, Arrow hears that his men are executing Declan themselves. Arrow breaks into the jail and leads Laurel and Declan out. Something Laurel says prompts her father to review surveillance footage from the Unidac auction and he sees Oliver with his gear. After Diggle accepts Oliver’s offer to work with him, Detective Lance arrests Oliver for a variety of offenses, including acting as a vigilante and murder.

Meanwhile, Walter discovers that 2.6 million dollars was withdrawn from the company. Moira says she used the money on a friend’s start-up venture. Suspicious, Walter secretly enlists Felicity Smoak’s help, and she finds that a warehouse in Starling City was purchased. Inside, Walter sees the Queen’s Gambit split in half. Moira meets the Well-Dressed man, who informs her that Arrow is taking out “the list.”

Back on the island, Yeo Fei gives Oliver a trapped bird, indicating that Oliver has to kill it to eat. Oliver takes a while to do so, after which, Yao Fei reveals that he speaks English. Noticing that Oliver constantly stares at a picture of Laurel, he warns Oliver to forget her or he will not survive.
