After killing a hitman by the name of Guillerma Barrera, Oliver enlists the help of Felicity to help him unlock the hitman’s phone to figure out who was the target. He’s afraid that the target is still in danger, and wants to get to them before another hitman is hired.

During a flashback to his time on the island, Oliver is in the process of being trained by Slade as the pair attempt to figure out their next move. Oliver sets his sites on a radio that broke when Slade’s plane crashed, and manages to fix it so they can hear Fyer’s and his men. The pair head out after overhearing something about a monster on the island, and find a missile launcher.

During a birthday celebration for Tommy, Malcolm shows up to wish him a happy birthday and to invite him to an award ceremony where Malcolm will be honoured for his humanitarian work. After a lot of convincing, Oliver persuades Tommy to go to support his dad.  Moira reveals that the attempt on Malcolm’s life will take place during the ceremony, and Chin White seeks out an injured Deadshot to finish the job.

Felicity manages to figure out the last call Barrera made, which leads them to a restaurant in China town which they know is a front for the Triad. After quite some struggles, she manages to crack the phone and finds out that Malcolm is the target. Oliver rushes to the ceremony to safe Malcolm and Tommy from Deadshot and the Triad, during which time Malcolm is shot by two of Deadshot’s poisoned bullets.

Oliver has to reveal his secret to Tommy, or else he won’t let Oliver help Malcolm. The pair perform a blood transfusion to give Malcolm enough time to get to the Hospital, but don’t reveal Oliver’s secret to Malcolm when he wakes up. Malcolm puts Moira in charge of finding out who the traitor is that tried to kill him, completely unaware that she was who put the hit on him.

Meanwhile, Laurel’s estranged mother reaches out to her about her sister, Sarah..
