Isabel is still AWOL. Oliver keeps talking about how bad things happened to Slade on craphole island. Roy slaps water. Laurel has a venomous town, is poisonous and acts uncaringly toward Quentin. The Bronze Tiger escapes prison, Walter asks Moira to run for Mayor against Blood and Quentin tries to drag Laurel and her scary chin implant to AA. Bronze Tiger sneaks around Malcolm Merlyn’s house, which is in receivership apparently. A photograph of Tommy is on display in Malcolm’s house, awww.
Malcolm kept a prototype earthquake machine in his garage. The blathering skank Laurel faces disbarment. Roy’s sanity sabbatical is over and he makes a discovery. Why can’t Thea know about Oliver and Roy? Moira is slime and flashbacks to craphole island show how Slade didn’t want to succumb to aggression, but he will find out Oliver lied to him and Oliver will try to kill him. Poor Slade, Oliver can be a tool. This episode had flaws but it was okay and set some interesting stuff up.
