Oliver's next target is Scott Morgan, a power executive who jacks up prices for electricity when people most need it. John Diggle suggests they go after the gang of bank robbers that recently wounded a police officer during a daytime heist. Oliver is not so keen but John isn't the kind of guy who gives up very easily. Oliver quickly identifies one of them as a high school acquaintance, Derek Reston - and learns that Reston may have turned to crime because of something Oliver's father did. Tommy meanwhile isn't having much luck with his hoped for romance with Laurel. He seeks Thea's advice. Flashbacks show Oliver's doubts about his survival on the island. Written by

The masks that the Reston family wore during their bank robberies had the markings of the ten, Jack, Queen, King and Ace of spades. This is in reference to The Royal Flush Gang, a criminal group from the DC comics that have come into conflict with numerous DC superheroes. See more

My father made mistakes. He hurt people. When people are hurt, people are in trouble, they tend to make the wrong choices. Right, Derek? But those choices don't have to define you. They don't have to define who your family will be. Because there's always one moment when you can turn it all around. If my father had another chance, I think he'd do things differently, but time ran out for him.
How poetic. That doesn't help me get my house back, now does it?
No, it doesn't. No, all I can offer you ...
