Oliver has to deal with the fact that there's a copycat on the street dispensing justice. The first victim is Adam Hunt who Oliver put out of business some months ago. Det. Quentin Lance quickly concludes that the killer, who uses black arrows, is not the Hood, as he calls Oliver. Things become deadly serious when the Black Arrow takes a group of innocent people hostage threatening to kill one every hour until the Arrow is apprehended. Meanwhile, Oliver is surprised that the family no longer has their annual Christmas party and offers to re-institute what was once a Queen family tradition. In flashbacks, we learn that the island on which Oliver lived for 5 years was once a Chinese prison. Written by garykmcd

Moira Queen: Forgive me if I don't find that comforting.
Malcolm Merlyn: You were warned, Moira. I told you to get Walter under control, and you couldn't. Steps had to be taken.
Moira Queen: That's what you said to justify Robert's murder. And you wonder why I don't trust you.
Malcolm Merlyn: Quite a bid of judgment coming from a woman who had her son kidnapped and tortured.
Moira Queen: To prove to you that Oliver didn't know anything. And why does it matter now? ...
