Thea knocks on Roy's door. He says he decided not to take the job, because it would be charity from some rich girl. He'd rather have his life of crime. That's what he says! Then Thea walks away and is set upon by some goons. Roy jumps in and parkours for a bit before punching the goons out. He gets stabbed in the side though.
Night. Helena and Oliver are on motorcycles. Oliver warns Helena that she's only allowed to kill Frank or else he'll kill her. She says, "Now I know how you charmed your cop girlfriend." The vans come out of a downtown building. Now, how did Oliver know where the vans would be? He knows everything about their route except for where they start? The vans split up and so do the vigilantes.
Motorcycles follow vans. Oliver blows up the rear door of one and is disappointed to find it empty. He zooms away, frequently going against traffic. He's terrible at keeping a low profile.
Helena blows up the front of her van and makes it pull over. But it's full of police! Detective Lance sprang an ambush! Lance asks where the Hood is, and McKenna reads her her rights. Oliver pulls up suspiciously close and then splits.
Helena waits in the interrogation room until Detective Lance and McKenna come in. Lance recaps her crime spree from her previous arc. McKenna says that Helena knows who the vigilante is. Lance says Helena is definitely going to prison, but he offers to make things "better" if she says the vigilante's name. She says, "Oliver Queen." Then she follows that up with, "You're dating him now right?" She digs at both McKenna and Detective Lance by claiming that Oliver Queen uses people like her and both of Lance's daughters. She recommends McKenna get out of it. Lance is riled up: "Last chance. His name." Then the lights go out. From the smoke and red light, I'd say there's a fire in the police station! Oliver comes into the interrogation room (wearing a breathing mask) and gets her out. He shoots Lance with a dart in the neck on the way out. Because why not, right?
Thea and Roy are at the hospital. Roy is shirtless, which is at least justified by the need to stitch up the knife wound in his side. He insists that he and Thea aren't friends. He's a little freaked out by the giant needle the doctor proposes to stick him with. He doesn't want the shot. To distract him, she kisses him on the mouth.
Comic book history break! Green Arrow's sidekick is Speedy, which is Thea's nickname. But Speedy's real name is Roy Harper. And like our Roy, Speedy wears a red hood. So either one or both could end up as Oliver's official sidekick, assuming you don't mind even more people knowing his secret identity. And the comic book Speedy was once hooked on heroin, leading to a comic book cover where Green Arrow wailed, "My ward is a JUNKIE!" So this could be a hint that Roy is a drug addict. Or is going to become an addict. Or something.
