When billionaire playboy Oliver Queen returns home from the dead to Starling City after five years stranded on a remote island in the Pacific, he hides the changes the experience had on him, while secretly seeking reconciliation with his ex girl friend, Laurel, who he cheated on with her sister, Sarah.
In the daytime, he picks up where he left off, playing the carefree philanderer he used to be, but at night he assumes the alter ego of Arrow and works to right the wrongs of his family and restore Starling City to its former glory.
