CNRI. Emily wants Somers to face justice, because she's not suing him for the money. Laurel starts to talk about dangerous people and Emily says they'll have to kill her if they want her to give it up. Well, considering that they're talking about the Chinese Triads -- who are already alleged to have killed her father -- that doesn't sound like something they'd have a problem with. Officer Dad barges in to announce that the three of them (Laurel, Emily and Laurel's friend who doesn't say much) are getting round-the-clock police protection. Laurel is weirdly angry about it. She doesn't have any reason to be mad at him. He didn't say "Lay off the case" or anything. He's just giving them police protection because they were explicitly threatened.
Somers's office. As Asian lady with a phony white wig comes in. According to the Internet, she is named "China White," which seems a little on-the-nose to me. He wants her to deal with Arrow. She wants to take out Emily Nocenti, but he thinks that will just make Laurel more determined. "Then we kill Miss Lance," she says. They should really get on the same page about who to kill. Although it occurs to me that if she represents the Triads, she could save a lot of effort by just killing Mr. Martin Somers. He's the one bringing the heat down on her.
Oliver is shirtless again. He does, in fact, have some scars and burns. I will leave it to the eagle-eyed internet to determine if his scars are always in the same place. Thea comes in and asks how he got them. He asks peevishly, "Don't you knock?" Not when the door's open, dummy. She wants to know what happened. He doesn't want to talk about it. She sulks away. He apologizes and says he's not ready yet. She asks if he has a second. She wants to show him something "out back."
Outside, on the incredibly spacious Queen grounds, I have to wonder where this castle is located. All the shots of Starling City look like a very busy city, but the Queens live off on their own. Thea's brought Oliver to see his father's tombstone. Their mother stopped coming here after a month. Oliver's stone says "Oliver Queen; 1985-2007. A loving son and brother, whose light was dimmed far too soon." Seems like they could have taken that down once he was declared not-dead. Thea would talk to Oliver's stone and ask him to come home. "I felt closer to you when you were dead," she says. She wants him to let her in. That's what's going on here. Also, the Queens didn't have a cemetery already lined up, so they just stuck their tombstones in the backyard.
