All the characters assume that the person manipulating Cayden James would be one of the people currently working with him because it had to have been someone who knows him well. Because the person manipulating him began doing so before his current operation began, their assumption is faulty. The person would have had to have known him (either personally or from a distance) prior to Cayden's current operation so people who knew him before, such as Alena, should be suspects. See more »


Oliver Queen: What you did was very dangerous.
William Clayton: I know. And I'm sorry.
Oliver Queen: I am never gonna let anything happen to you, William, ever. And I am promising you that I will do everything I can to make sure nothing happens to me.
William Clayton: You can't make that promise.
Oliver Queen: I can make that promise. I just did. I am right now. Kiddo, I've been doing this a long time. So trust me. Okay?
William Clayton: Okay.
Oliver Queen: Thank you.
