An Innocent Man CW’s description: ARROW RECRUITS LAUREL TO HELP WITH A CASE — Oliver still hasn't figured out how to get back in Laurel's good graces, but a late night bonding session with Thea gives him the inspiration he needs. Looking into a suspicious murder case, Oliver realizes an innocent man, Peter Declan (guest star Lane Edwards), was framed by one of the targets on his list. As Arrow, he asks Laurel to help prove Declan's innocence. Meanwhile, Walter (guest star Colin Salmon) asks one of his employees, Felicity Smoak (guest star Emily Rickards), to look into a $2.6 million withdrawal that Moira made without his knowledge. David Ramsey and Paul Blackthorne also star. Vince Misiano directed the episode written by Moira Kirland & Lana Cho.

Rated a 4. I enjoyed the episode even though Arrow did not use his fighting and arrow skills as much as he did in previous episodes. He made up for that by using some intimidation techniques. I liked learning a little more about his time on the island and that he was very different then. I already liked Diggles and I might warm up to the stepfather. Laurel’s father is going to be a royal pain, but I can’t hate him because he has good reasons to hate both Oliver and Arrow.
As promised, spoiler summary of the first 30 minutes of the episode The episode continued directly following Arrow taking Diggles to his hideout. Diggles awakened and recognized Oliver. He slowly realized Oliver must be the vigilante and takes an unsteady step toward him and swings a fist at Oliver. Meanwhile, Oliver is wearing a tight green leather outfit (without the hood) that would make agents beg him to model for them. But Diggles did not seem to notice that as he did another swing and a miss! Oliver helped Diggles to sit down and explained he brought him to the hideout because he wants Diggles to join him in his quest to rid the city of the villains. Diggles considers Arrow to be a criminal and declined.
Oliver went home and (stay away from me) Laurel was there because she wanted to see if he was okay. After seeing he was okay, she scolded him about his thoughtlessness in letting his family worry about him when he did not come home, yada, yada. After explaining how perfect she, herself, is, Laurel left.
Baby sister overheard the last part and was pretty nice about it for a change. Oliver told her he has changed from the man he used to be. Thea suggested he let Laurel see that. While the two of them watched TV later, newscast covered a story about a man who would be executed for the murder of his wife. His wife worked for the company of Debreaux(sp?), one of the names on Arrow’s list.
Arrow broke into Laurel’s apartment. She saw a window open and grabbed a handgun. Arrow assured her he would not hurt her, so she stood there as he slowly and sexily approached and placed his hand on the barrel of the gun. He then told her to investigate the case of the soon-to-be-executed-man-whose-wife-worked-for-a-man-whose-name-is-on-the-list.
Home again. Mother let Oliver know he has a new bodyguard because Diggles quit. Oliver immediately gives the guy the slip. He later approached Diggles in the diner and gave him a real good pitch about why he is doing what he is doing. Diggles declined.
Meanwhile, stepfather is concerned about a $3.6 million discrepancy. At first, mother acted as if she knew nothing about it. Later, she said she had lost the money in an investment three years ago. She was not convincing and stepfather told his best I.T. girl to discreetly investigate.

Hi Jeff I enjoy this show very much. It has a lot of action that I enjoy. My avatar "Diggles" had a great role to play in the last episode. They have very interesting characters that they tell us about a little bit at a time too.
