'Arrow': Oliver Has To Pull Away From His Father's Legacy So He Can Battle Justice Covertly (VIDEO)

10/18/2012 07:27 am ET

Oliver Queen is still struggling to find his way now that he's back with his family after five years stranded on a deserted island. In the latest episode of "Arrow," his sister Thea took him into the backyard to show him one of the ways she coped with the disappearances of both her father and brother. There stood headstones for both Oliver and his father.

Thea said that she would come and talk to the headstones when she needed to get some things off of her chest. She then said she felt closer to him when he was dead. Thanks to Ollie's mission to take care of all the corruption in Starling City, he's closed off his personal life. Not to mention that flashbacks have only begun to show how harrowing his time on the island was.

But in order to accomplish the vow he made to his father to clean up the city, Oliver has to pretend to be something he no longer is. He has to go so far as to embarrass himself and his family name.

"sometimes, to honor your wishes, I need to dishonor your memory," Ollie explained to his father's gravestone. "I'm sorry."

The quest for justice continues every Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET on The CW's "Arrow."
