    True. Talking about that. HOW did that reporter gal get the dude to pull info on the bratva so soon??

    I think given the flashback in the last episode we can safely assume it was because of the pact he made with the

    Spoiler:
    nameless Russian chick (sorry I don't know her name) to go to Russia and tell her family what happened to her if she died.


    That's assuming the writing staff have remembered and it's not just a happy co-incidence.

    I just wonder how much went on on Lian Yu during the 5 years Ollie was there. It seems that he sure experienced a lot while he was there. I just wonder how much longer the show runners are gonna go with the Lian Yu references?

    I was just looking at this thread that I'd started back in 2013. I can't believe how much has happened on Arrow so far. Yet, we still have a lot to learn about Oliver!

    I do think, that his rescue was arrange by him given what we have seen so far. If he is going to be rescued it will be public and it will need to be near where the Gambit sunked.

    At some point, he decided to follow through with his Dad's wishes and used his time off the island to arrange a boat to get to the island so he can be "saved".

    I don't know, maybe something like that lol. Maybe he might have been forced to work for them as some sort if payment for their help, and he could have chosen to be "stranded" and "rescued" again once he was done working for them. Or, if for whatever reason, he ended up working for Fyers or his boss(who seem like they have contacts with all kinds of people), he could have developed the mob connections through them. Or maybe could he could have met someone else on the island, who was involved with the Russian mob, who ended up owing him. I don't know lol.

    The island flashbacks are my favorite part of the show so far, I look forward to them, and to finding out what exactly happened to Oliver.

    He might have been off the island at some point before he was rescued in the first episode. He mentioned being a Bratva(sp?) captain, and it was verified by that guy at the mechanic shop. If he was stranded on the island the whole time, how did he end up involved with the Russian mob(especially if he didn't end up working for Fyers or his boss at some point)? Though, I suppose he could have made another new friend on the island who was involved with the Bratva. If they are going to drag out the flashbacks for more than this season, there has to be more to them, than Oliver, Slade and Yao Fei running around the island, working out/training(IMO).
