Arrow Season 2
Following the Glades’ destruction and Tommy Merlyn’s death, Oliver Queen returns to Lian Yu alone as penance for failing his city and Tommy. Laurel Lance is revealed to be working for the District Attorney. Felicity Smoak and John Diggle arrive and convince Oliver to return, informing him that his mother, Moira, is awaiting trial while Queen Consolidated is under the threat of takeover and dissolution by Isabel Rochev. Oliver learns a group of vigilantes, dressed like “The Hood”, are killing others as earthquake retribution. They target Oliver twice before kidnapping sister Thea. Oliver saves her without killing anyone leaving the vigilantes for Quentin Lance, who has been demoted to patrol officer. Roy Harper is also trying to protect the Glades, and is rescued by an unknown female vigilante. Using Walter Steele’s help, Oliver saves his company and forces Rochev to accept a partnership. Thea reconciles with Moira. Oliver decides to honor Tommy’s memory by becoming a hero in Starling City, and finding a new name for his alter-ego. In a flashback, Oliver, Shado, and Slade Wilson encounter new armed men after months of believing to be alone. The newcomers are revealed to be searching some specific graves.
