Back to Recap Page
On the island, Yao Fei gives Oliver a short bow and arrow lesson, but when Oliver ventures into the woods to retrieve an arrow, he is captured. Edward Fyers, the leader of the group on the island, shows Oliver a picture of Yao Fei and asks if he knows him; Oliver denies it and Deathstroke tortures him. Yao Fei has a throwdown with Deathstroke and rescues Oliver, later leaving him blocked in his cave.
As Detective Lance questions Oliver, Moira and Walter interrupt and Oliver asks that Laurel represent him. At first, Laurel refuses, but she then struts into Oliver’s hearing to represent him against Kate Spencer. Oliver volunteers to take a polygraph and passes. To have witnesses of him being at home while Diggle is seen as Arrow tracking an arms dealer named Leo Mueller, Oliver throws a party. Laurel shows up to apologize and explain her father’s attitude. A man attacks Oliver at the party, but Detective Lance saves Oliver and drops all charges against him. Later on, Laurel gives Oliver the polygraph results, which she has suspicions about. Arrow takes down Mueller.
Walter secretly meets with the head of security and asks him to move the Queen’s Gambit. Soon after, Walter is informed that the head of security was killed in a mysterious car crash. He then summons Moira to his office to tell her that he found the yacht, and she urges him to stop digging because it is dangerous. Moira meets with the Well-Dressed Man, who sent the assassin after Oliver. Walter leaves for a “business trip” to Australia.
