Hunt is killed by a mysterious archer. Quentin deduces that a copycat is at work, but his superior publicly blames the hooded vigilante. Oliver plans a Christmas party at the mansion to bring back the spirit of the holidays to his family. He saves some hostages from the archer, and the two archers are injured after fighting, with Oliver realizing that Robert wasn't the author of the list. The archer escapes and is revealed to be Malcolm. Walter finds out about the vigilante's objective and is kidnapped by one of Malcolm's associates. The organization's plan is revealed to be starting six months later, when thousands of people will die for what it believes to be for the greater good. Flashbacks show the Chinese archer, Yao Fei, capturing Fyers, who tells Oliver that the island was a prison for dangerous criminals and that his unit was tasked to exterminate the inmates, including Yao, after the program was shut down. Yao is captured by the unit while leading Oliver to a possible escape from the island; and the latter escapes.
The episode was included in the Arrow: The Complete First Season DVD and Blu-ray sets, released by Warner Home Video on September 17, 2013.
