The entire dynamic of Team Arrow changes on Arrow Season two when Sara Lance, Laurel's sister who was believed to be lost at sea, returns to Starling City as The Canary. When she is busy fighting evil she confronts The Hood who she has no problem recognizing despite his incredible disguise of a green hood and painted on mask. Hard to believe, right? But does he recognize her? No. Not until she makes the reveal. We then learn what happened to Sara and that Oliver didn't believe her to be dead all of this time. What?! Yes, they were both putting her family through hell but that didn't stop them from blaming Laurel for being a whiny baby. She though she lost two of the most important people in her life for goodness sakes; ones that betrayed her. In Arrow Season 2 Felicity Smoak becomes indispensible. She gives to Oliver the strength to fight another day more than once. Her feelings for him seem obvious, but not to him. We cheer them on. John Diggle carries on with generally being awesome and Thea's boyfriend Roy Harper joins the team. It's all so good. Here's hoping you're watching!
Sara: That's not true. I wanted to kill Roy because that's what I do. That's who I am. I spent six years in the darkness and I looked into the eyes of the devil and I gave him my soul. Oliver: I can help you get it back. Sara: No. You deserve someone better. You can harness that light that's still inside of you, but I'm not that person and I never will be.
