A clock says it's 9:25. Hunt has many goons in his office with machine guns. That sounds safe! Across the street, Oliver's party distracts them. But the party is only about three stories high, and Hunt's office is probably about on the twentieth story.
Tommy talks to Oliver about a girl to have sex with and works in an insult about Twilight. Oliver sees a drug deal go down between his sister and a friend so he goes over to meddle. Oliver doesn't want her here. She says he can't judge her for being just like him. She gets snippy about how he died. She can't forget the last five years and goes on about being a big disappointment. She says she's bouncing. As she bounces, she discovers that her purse is drug-free. Oliver tosses the drugs in a trash can, and Dig nods at him. Dig is very observant, but is he a good guy? I think the show hasn't decided.
Now Laurel's here. She and Oliver go someplace quiet. There's a giant model of the Earth there, but at least it doesn't have generic party beats. She apologizes for saying he should have died instead of Sarah. He says he'd trade places if he could. She says, "About Sarah. There's something I've been afraid to ask, but I need to know." Did she suffer? (Flashback: "AAAAHHH! SARAH!") Oliver: "No." She tells him, "If you need someone to talk to about what happened to you, I'm here."
But before that can turn into a real scene with characters showing emotion, Oliver's phone goes off. It's 10:00 and there's been no bank transfer. He says, "Laurel." Then he pauses for a long time. "You always saw the best in me." He tells her the island did not make him a better person and encourages her to stay away from him: "Gotta roll! I got five years of debauchery to catch up on!" She says at least now he's honest. As soon as she turns around, he drops the Bruce Wayne act and looks somber. If he wanted to keep her away from him and for everyone to think he was a shallow partier, he probably shouldn't have gone to apologize to her.
Oliver walks through the kitchen, and Dig is suddenly behind a pillar. Dig asks if he needs help. He does not. Dig starts to lead Oliver back to the party, but Oliver takes him down. Won't Dig have something to say about this?
Hunt's security is set up. "He's never getting in here!" says a goon with very little sense of dramatic irony.
And then! Arrow to the concrete wall outside! The power goes out. The door opens! Arrow! Kick! Oliver whacks a few guys with the bow, which you'd think would throw the tension off. Jump! Headscissors! Machine gun! Misses! Goon through a wall! Punch! Arrow! Oliver shoots an arrow past Hunt's head but acts like it was on purpose. Practically everyone's dead except for Oliver, Mr. Drakon, and Hunt. So it's time for an extended fight between Drakon and Oliver. Fight! Smash! Punch! Rargh! Hunt gets to a phone and calls Officer Dude, who's down on the ground floor.
