"Honor Thy Father" is the second episode of the first season of Arrow, and the second episode overall. It aired on October 17, 2012.

PlotEdit

Laurel brings a civil suit against millionaire Martin Somers, who is also one of Oliver's targets, for taking part in drug trades with the Chinese Triads that ultimately led to the death of a young woman's father. As the hooded vigilante, Oliver threatens Somers to make him confess to the murder as penance for all of the wrongs he has done to the city. Instead, Somers contacts the Triad, who sends their assassin, China White, to kill Laurel. Oliver saves Laurel from China; he also captures and gives an audio recording of Somers’ confession to Detective Lance. Meanwhile, Oliver’s mother and Walter push Oliver to take a position at the company. Oliver intentionally embarrasses the family at the opening of the company's new applied sciences division to get out of it, knowing that he can't honor his father’s request to fight for the city and be the man his mother wants him to be at the same time. A flashback to Oliver's time on the island shows him being attacked by an unknown hooded figure wielding a bow and arrow.
