Synopsis: Anatoly returns to Star City with a sinister agenda as Oliver tries to balance being the mayor, the Green Arrow and William’s father.
Being Green Arrow, The Mayor, under FBI investigation for potentially being the Green Arrow, and a Dad is proving to be a lot to carry on his shoulders and he has to make a choice.
But this idea only comes to fruition after an old comrade comes to cause havoc in Ollie’s city. What he wants is 20 million dollars. As these two confront one another, Anatoly tells Ollie that he could have done far worse than kill one person. He could have gone after William.
Between the revelation that his own son is a target, be it from the criminal world or via the FBI (they are willing to interrogate William).
There is also William confessing to Oliver that he does worry that he will lose Oliver and be left alone.
What does one do in this situation?
Well, if you are Oliver, you turn to the one person you can trust to step into crime-fighting shoes.
That person is John Diggle.
While this may look like a wise choice, Oliver does not know that John is suffering from an injury caused by shrapnel from the explosion on the island and it will not get any better.
How can John agree to don the hood? How will the team adjust to this change?
Next: Next of Kin- A rogue black ops team led by Onyx breaks into Kord Industries and steals something lethal. Meanwhile, Oliver struggles to connect with William so he reaches out to a surprising source for help.
