The two share similar taste in everything, but what Oliver will soon uncover is that Dmitri is actually a mercenary named Merlyn and that he was sent by the organization to destroy Green Arrow. Not only Oliver has to deal with a deadly new enemy, but he also have to deal with a unexpected new arrival...the mysterious Black Canary. Friend or foe, she puts Oliver in uncharted waters and as well put his closet confidants, Brianna Stone and Eddie Fyers in harm's way. Will Oliver sacrifice everything to find the truth or let his life be ruined by his own mistakes.
Starts out as we see Green Arrow (Liam Hemsworth) dragging Mr. Fugate/Clock King (James Cromwell) to the top a rooftop building miles away from the hotel he abducted him. Green Arrow forces Fugate to tell him how he tracked his pocket watch to a boat the day Oliver Queen went missing; and demands him to tell him about the organization he works for. Fugate remains silent. Green Arrow then uses his arrow to tie up one of Fugate’s ankle; he then hangs Fugate upside down threatening him that he will drop him. Fugate still remains quiet; GA then drops the rope-arrow as Fugate almost falls but is stopped when GA tells him again, but this time he won’t stop the rope from falling. When Fugate begins to say something about “The Perspective will tell all”, and as he is about to mention about “them” and that they are much bigger than Oliver think. A mysterious black arrow appears and hits Fugate killing him. Just as Fugate about to confess, GA turns around to see the black arrow came from an unknown figure that starts to escape. GA realizing Fugate is already dead brings his body back up than starts chasing after the figure that killed his prime suspect. After a few minutes chasing nothing, GA realizes whoever killed Fugate must have been part of the secret organization. Now GA has only “the Perspective” and that “there are more involved” to go on. The next few months gone by and everyone around Star City start to question Green Arrow and his role. Is he a hero or foe; back at the Star Ledger, Brianna Stone (Amber Heard) looks on as she overhears a TV public conference where people start confessing their opinions/concerns about the Emerald Archer. Brianna’s boss, Ron (Isaiah Washington) tells Brianna that the new reporter, light brunette Dinah Lance (Adrianne Palicki) is also involved with the story of Green Arrow’s identity. Brianna is worried that Dinah has no updates, but Dinah interrupts her and starts telling her new details about who could be underneath hood. Ron gets impressed and orders both of them to work on the case, but not as partners. Enticing a race between them, Dinah takes on that offer and heads to out promising she will have the Robin Hood identity by the end of the week. Already knowing who is GA, Brianna realizes she must play along with the charade but already has a dislike to the new reporter. Trying to make this race interesting, she requests James Bard or Jam (Robert Hoffman) to help her in the report. Later, Oliver meets up with Eddie Fyers (Eric Balfour) at the bottom of the newly constructed Robert Queen Bridge—which looks like the Brooklyn Bridge, but more modern. Inside one of the bridge’s structures is a safe room. Oliver and Eddie continue what they know about the organization, the unknown assassin, and the Perspective. Eddie tells Oliver what he knows that Fugate used be known as other aliases such as William Tockman, and that he had no known family. Oliver is more interested in who killed Fugate, and even backtracking the black arrow—which had an M-like symbol, but nothing else. Eddie reminds Oliver to do what he has to do as the rich boy doing well even be Green Arrow, but fears who they are dealing with won’t be mess with likely. Oliver promised his parents he will find the truth and learn the reason why they killed them and used Hackett as part of their pawn. After the meeting, Eddie heads out to see his current girlfriend, Sara Mars (Rachel McAdams), teaching at Star City Middle and at night be a small diner waitress. Meantime, Ollie heads back to Queen Corp where they are setting up a new product line of cyber security. He smiles on as the deal goes successful; Ollie meets up with a suitable investor, Marco Andella. Being great as potential partners and as friends, Andella invites Oliver to Sicily, Italy for his birthday bash his wife has setup. Oliver agrees with that and celebrates what looks like to be a great relationship.
