Flashback to the cave of wonders.
When I think about you, I touch myself.
Oliver arises and sneaks off while Hoodie is sleeping and an ass-cam follows his escape.
I’m okay with this clumsiness.
Oops, Oliver stepped right into a net trap. And back to the present. Diggle takes the boys to a diner where his sister-in-law works, and Oliver points out that she’s not wearing a wedding ring. Diggle’s brother is for some reason not in the picture. She says it’s sweet of Diggle to adopt two white boys and give them a much needed role model. Ha.
Tommy apologizes for deepdicking Whaurel when Oliver was presumed dead. Ollie says it’s okay. We learns that Diggle’s job got his brother killed, and the sis-in-law is bitter about it. Oliver gets a call and drops some Russian on us. The guy from the autoshop has a name for him as well an address where Deadshot stayed last time he was in Starling City. Oh and Oliver’s Bratva cover checks out, so I wonder what the story there is.
Deadshot is study some blueprints when arrow shows up at his door. They fire at each other, but no one lands any hits yet. Deadshot jumps through a window and escapes. Arrow snatches the computer then leaves.
Oliver goes to visit Felicity Smoak, who is apparently to be a recurring cast member and takes lipstick cues from Sonjia on Project Runway.
A little strong for a day look.
She’s awkward and likeable though, so I like her. He gives her the bullet-riddled laptop and says he spilled a latte on it. Seems legit. He asks her to salvage whatever she can from it. We cut to Thea, and her mom comes in with dress options for Steele’s stock auction of the company he wanted to acquire. Moira tries to connect with (manipulate) Thea and tells some stupid story about a cat.
Felicity shows Oliver the blueprints, which are for the building where the auction is taking place. She’s no dummy and doesn’t want to get in the middle of whatever family drama is going on. The laptop actually belongs to one of Steele’s competitors, Warren Patel. It seems Patel hired Deadshot. Also, it kills me when people say “labtop” instead of laptop. School yourself, bitch.
Arrow sneaks up on DD and drops some knowledge about the scheme in order to enlist some help.
Arrow leaves the laptop and peaces out.
At the auction, Steele and Moira are being gross and old when Thea shows up and hugs her mommy. The cops snag Patel, and DD checks in on his men. The last one has been replaced by Deadshot who is now wearing that silly-ass eyepiece.
