The housekeeper, I didn’t catch her name so I’m calling her Rosario, trips and almost drops a bowl of fruit, but Ollie’s super hero reflexes catches it. Ollie speaks Russian to Rosario then calls out Walter for banging his mom.
“NOT cool, bro.”
Oh snap, Mrs. Queen and Walter are now married. Oliver is obviously not keen on this and excuses himself politely to go cry in his bedroom and listen to Adele.
I am going to read into every little homomoment on this show.
Due to all the trauma of the island, Ollie is sleeping on the floor in front of an open window. Totes healthy. He flashbacks to the boat with Ruby’s sister Sarah, and we learn that he is an Ivy League dropout.
Tyra would be so jealous of the hairline on his wig.
Sarah says Ruby is going to kill her, but Ollie says she will never know. Just as they’re about to get it on, shit gets real and the boat tilts.
Worst pillow fight ever.
Aaaan Sarah gets sucked out. Ollie and his dad are in a lifeboat and seem to be the only survivors so far.
Moira Queen startles Oliver awake. Big mistake.
“This is for that tacky blouse!”
In the morning, Oliver pulls a mysterious box out from beneath his bed. He unlocks it and the first thing we see inside is a little book. I guess he was keeping a diary on the island.
“It’s called a JOURNAL!”
We cut to his sister and her friend, crushing and cutting up painkillers into lines ostensibly to snort. Good old Kaitlin Cooper, up to the same old shit. Ollie comes in and they chat about her nickname Speedy, and he suggests it worked when she was little and maybe it still does. Heh, drugs, get it? It would have been better if they didn’t explicitly state that the pills were opiates. WHATEVER.
Ollie says he has something for Speedy and holds out something that looks like an arrowhead with Chinese writing on it.
Worst dildo ever.
He says it’s a Buddhist symbol for reconnecting and that he kept it because he wanted to reconnect with her some day. Aww. That’s cute and all, but we get it! He’s completely changed.
Ollie and Tommy head out to paint the town pink. Tommy insists on throwing him a party. Ollie says that he wants to see Ruby, but Tommy says she’s the one person not happy that he’s alive. I suggest going to see her shirtless.
