Carter Bowen is a neurosurgeon, and is now trying to pimp himself as a Dr. Oz type.
We cut to the Royal Flush fam as they head into their next robbery. The dad says not to shoot anybody. It’s good to know that SOME people still have morals, eh?
Mrs. Bowen asks what Oliver’s plans are now that he’s back, and he brings up the night club again. Is this night club ever going to happen? Or is this the Sonja Morgan toaster oven of Arrow?
“Well it’s not just a night club. It’s coasters and aprons and condoms and roofies. . .”
No Diggity comes and whispers into Ollie’s ear that a bank was just hit two minutes ago. What excuse will Ollie come up with to get out of this?
The plan is to intercept the RFG in a water tunnel that is the likely escape route. The cops are also in the tunnel, and a shoot-out has begun. Ollie literally slides on the scene, and it was somehow super sexual for me.
Maybe it’s just the whole on-your-knees position.
Arrow shoots the bag of loot away from one of the RFG, and it binds itself to the floor. He disarms another robber and secures the bag even tighter with another arrow. The baddies get away, and then Ollie escapes from the police.
The RFG is arguing amongst themselves, and the parents say they should get the fuck out of Dodge. The angry Ace son says heeeeeell no, they need to get enough money to be set for life before they quit. Daddy King agrees to one more job, but that’s it.
Ollie once again hits up Felicity Smoak for some nerd shit. I like her quirky lack of a filter followed by backpeddling.
“I mean. . . 3.141592654—“
Ollie wants her to look into Derek Reston, one of the RFG. And we get a fuck-you in the form of an ad for Asus and Windows 8. She learns that Mr. Reston (King RFG) worked at a Queen steel factory for 15 years before it was shut down. He was the foreman until Dead Queen laid of 1,500 people to outsource to China. DQ (heh) even found a way to do it without having to pay severance or pension. Basically Ollie’s father was a supreme asshole and fucked everyone over.
CAVE OF WONDERS
Ollie is talking to Ghost Daddy, who offers a gun with a single bullet to Ollie. He says that his own death is made meaningless by Ollie’s. Ollie says that he’s starving to death anyway, so he might as well make it quick. He brings the gun to his head and we’re back to the future.
