Oliver grapples with being a good 'Arrow' and a good dad

Oliver had his hands full on Arrow as the FBI launched an official investigation into his involvement with the vigilante. FBI agent Samanda Watson is the new sheriff in Star City, and she has a bone to pick with Oliver.

Oliver’s Bratva past is also coming back to haunt him. Anatoly has returned to Oliver’s life, but he’s not so friendly. In order to prove his manliness, Anatoly is demanding $20 million from Oliver’s Star City.

And if all that weren’t enough, Oliver’s son has some legitimate beef with his dad. William is upset Oliver will get himself killed, and Oliver realizes he has a good point.

Oliver met up with Diggle and told him, “I cannot be responsible for my son losing the only parent that he has left. Star City needs the Green Arrow. It just can’t be me anymore. So I’d like it to be you.”

Little does Oliver know that Diggle is suffering from degenerative nerve damage in his hands that has rendered him handicapped. Guess there’s a lot to unfold next episode.

Arrow airs at 9 p.m. on the CW.
