Clark is still at the hospital. He's walking around replacing the charts he's been looking at. You know, one time I tried to get my own chart from one of those door hanger thingies, and a nurse was all up in my face in about a nanosecond. Clark overhears a man's thoughts saying, "He forced me to do it. It wasn't me. I'm innocent!" Clark frowns and follows the thoughts to the aforementioned Mr. Murphy's room. Murphy, despite still being unconscious and most likely doped to the gills on pain meds, is an excellent and detailed expositor. His thoughts explain about someone strapping the bomb on him, talking about toys, and wanting Oliver Queen to "pay for what he'd done to him." Clark nods and whispers, "Toyman." He zips into action.
Finally the Toyman shows up in this episode. Well, sort of. We don't see him but we see his cluttered workshop, with various toys like those creepy cymbal monkeys strewn about. On a desk, a copy of the Daily planet helpfully reminds us that he's still at large. He giggles maniacally offscreen: "Let the games begin!"
At the Mexican bar, Tess and Oliver appear to have the whole place to themselves. The gentle music of seemingly genuine concern plays. Oliver sits at the bar, drinking. Tess watches him from across the room. "What the hell were you thinking?" she asks. "They could have killed you." He says she didn't give them a chance. Oh, boo frickin' hoo. If you want to die, don't do it in some passive-aggressive way that results in someone else having your blood on their hands. His shirt is awesome, though. I've just noticed there's this cool embroidered detail on it. I'll have to see if I can order one from A&F. Tess gets after him for not knowing about his factory blowing up and not giving a damn about anything anymore. He drinks some more and says she wasted jet fuel to come lecture him. "Your company is failing," she tells him. His shareholders are upset. Oliver thinks she should just tell them the truth and take over the company herself: "It's what you've always wanted, isn't it?" Her voice is soft but stern as she asks him why he's punishing himself. He doesn't say. She comes up behind him and touches his shoulder. "Oliver, what did you do?" Sad, tinkly music plays. Oliver gets teary but pulls himself together and turns to face her. He wants to know what she really wants from him. She drops the ruse and her expression slowly hardens. Cassidy Freeman is awesome at conveying a lot with subtle facial expressions. Her eyes are always engaged. Tess wants Oliver to address the shareholders. "Cheer up," she says with an eerie smile. "You can fall down drunk in a gutter as soon as it's done." She turns and leaves. Oliver pouts.
