Recap

At Iron Heights Prison, Cyrus Vanch is released on a technicality and a woman, Vivian, greets him. Cyrus kisses her and then goes to his old home. His attorney, George Wolfman, is there and surprised to see Cyrus out of prison. The lawyer claims that there were recent contingencies that he couldn't anticipate, including the arrival of The Hood in Starling City. After hugging George, Cyrus tells him that he'll be taking his home... and then lowers the dead man to the floor after removing his knife from his back...

Episode Notes
The name of Mira's accountant, Fauquet-Lemaitre, is a reference to Dominique Fauquet-Lemaite, the show's set decorator.



Episode Quotes
Cyrus Vanch: Interesting. Using deception and intimidation to make a name for himself. This guy stole my move.

Tommy: Can I talk to you about something?
Oliver: Tommy, every time you want to talk to me about something and that something is Laurel, you look like you're about to tell me you have a terminal disease.

The Hood: Are you all right?
Laurel: What would you think if I said that I didn't know?
The Hood: That you were being honest.



Cultural References
Laurel: Like an episode of The Bachelor.

Kelton: Your daughter's playing Maid Marion to Robin Hood again.

Oliver: He won Top Chef Season Six.
