Oliver realizes that the impending execution of Peter Declan for the murder of his wife is a judicial error, her employer Jason Brodeur being on father Queen's list of dirty tycoons. In disguise, Oliver tries the legal way with Laurel Lance, but that only proves to both vigilante methods are occasionally the only option. Under duress, Jason's henchman Matt Istook reveals that he even ordered Peter's 'early execution' in prison, so the Green Arrow must infiltrate there, which puts detective inspector Quentin Lance on his trail. Oliver also shakes his new body guard and recruits the previous, Afghanistan veteran John Diggle, as Green Arrow's aid. A huge 'accounting error' puts Walter on the trail of Moira's secret holdings and part in the shipwreck. Written by KGF Vissers

Not far from innocent

The first three episodes did a great job in establishing the premise of the show. A rich spoiled boy who got stranded on an island turns into a hero and tries to fight businessmen who are trying to destroy the city he loves seemed kind of uninspiring, but this episode shows that there's more to it than just that. It continues to give some more character depth to not only Oliver Queen, but the other side characters as well including John Diggle and Tommy Merlyn, who might turn out more interesting in the later episodes. And the writing continues to be strong and the characters still remain as relatable as possible especially with the relationships between Oliver and John and Tommy. The combination of action, mystery, and drama continues to be fresh and the pacing never fails to amuse me. The directing is top notch, the cinematography continues to be riveting, and the music score continues to be solid. So, overall, An Innocent Man is a great continuation and proves there's more to come in the future for the first season. Thumbs up :)
