Recap

At a strip club, Helena poses as a lap dancer and approaches a mob lawyer, Gus Sabatoni. She invites him in back and he realizes who she is. Helena orders her father's attorney to tell her where she can find her father, and Gus says that after Frank made his plea deal with the Feds, they put him into protective custody. The lawyer insists that he doesn't know where Frank is and Helena says that she believes him. She walks out a minute later and drives off on her motorcycle. Meanwhile, a bouncer checks on Gus and discovers that he's dead, crossbow bolts in his chest...

Episode Quotes
Oliver: Helena.
Diggle: Yes, or as I like to call her, your psycho ex-girlfriend.

Oliver: Thank you.
Diggle: It's my job.
Oliver: For not saying "I told you so."
Diggle: Night's young.

Oliver: Just your father. Anyone else gets hurt and I'll put an arrow into you.
Helena: That's sweet. Now I know how you charmed your cop girlfriend.



Cultural References
Quentin: So you really believe this garbage your mother's selling about Sarah being alive on Fantasy Island?

Fantasy Island (1978-84) was an ABC anthology series of sorts, where the white-suited Mr. Roarke would welcome guests to his tropical island and give them a customized fantasy of their heart's desire... that wouldn't turn out the way that they desired.
