While on her way to meet Oliver, Moira is almost gunned down by a mysterious assailant who was attempting to assassinate an associate of mob boss Frank Bertinelli. Oliver attempts to infilitrate Frank’s business to discover the identity of the attacker. Frank confronts China White and the Triad gang for the murders of his people. Oliver learns that the attacker is Helena Bertinelli, Frank’s daughter, and whom with he had just been on a date. Helena reveals that she is looking for revenge against her father, who she blames for the murder of her fiancé.
Helena and Oliver are abducted by Frank’s right-hand man in connection to the deaths of other mob associates; Helena kills her father’s assistant after learning he killed her fiancé. She also deduces Oliver’s identity as the vigilante after witnessing him fight her father’s henchmen. In the end, Helena confesses to Oliver that she believes that they both share similar stories and that is why they feel connected to each other. Meanwhile, Tommy is cut off financially by his father, who turns out to be the unknown associate that Moira was meeting with regarding the target list. Walter returns home after being away for weeks.
It was another excellent episode, which gave us a terrific new character (hello Huntress), and brought back a couple of favourites (Walter and China White). I was also impressed with the reveal regarding John Barrowman’s character. I can’t wait for the next episode to find out some more answers.
