Thea brings him out back to Ollie’s and her father’s graves. Things were hard when they went away, blah blah blah, she would talk to Ollie’s grave and tell him all about her shitty life. She missed him so much and his lack of communication and consideration for her feelings makes it seem like they were closer when he was dead. She tells him to let someone in. But of course he can’t share his naughty little Arrow secret with anyone.
Oliver goes to see Laurel and learn the secrets of how to do a smoky eye.
“Hey, I ran out of eyeliner, can I borrow yours?”
Laurel makes a good point in saying that she can’t stay away from him if he won’t stay away from her. He says he’s learned from his sister that he needs to let someone in. Something tells me it won’t be to share his burn book kill list.
The two braid each other’s hair and talk about boys over a bowl of ice cream. He confides that his mother wants him to take over the business, and she says she can’t picture him as the master of the universe, and I can only take this as a He-Man reference by the writers.
Oddly enough I can picture it quite well.
Oliver says his mom won’t take no, and Laurel tells him that he’s an adult and needs to stop being such a pussy. We hear some suspicious sounds, and Ollie says there’s someone in the fire escape. He snatches a knife and her hand and as they are running, a man busts through the front door, followed by China White. Another lackey shoots at them, then yet another smashes through the bedroom window with a gun.
Here’s something I’m not sure about. Within the context of the show, are we to believe China White actually has white hair (or so platinum?)? Or is supposed to be a wig? I suppose the advantage could be that if you snatch a handful, she can escape sans wig. Then why not just put it in a ponytail? Or have very short hair as an assassin? These are the logistics that run through my head as I look at this character.
“Your crane style is no match for my Wig-Jitsu!”
Diggle apparatus out of nowhere and shoots two assailants. China White grapples with him and we’re finally getting to see at least of hint of his badassness. CW is about to stab Diggle, but Oliver hurls a knife from across the room, disarming her. Wiggy runs off, aaaand scene.
Detective Douche shows up and we learn the cops that were on detail are dead. He tells Oliver that whenever he’s around, one of his daughter dies, so step off, bro.
Back at Chez Queen, Diggle is no fool and calls Oliver out on his knife throwing skills. Oliver says he just got lucky, and he’s no more than a shallow manyboy.
