Synopsis for "Next Of Kin"
Arsenal has many things on his mind these days. A villain presented him a Red Arrow costume directly plugged from his mind and he is also looking for a babysitter to take care of his little daughter Lian. He also gets a surprise visit by Black Canary and, of course, they talk about the deceased Oliver Queen.
After a few minutes, four female mercenaries dressed as nurses enter his apartment. These women were sent by Babette Doubel. She is a daughter of Vandal Savage who started to clone brainless humans to be able to harvest replacement organs for her immortal father. Because Lian fell on her arm while crawling out of her playpen, Roy wants to take her to hospital while Dinah takes care of the heavily armed nurses. Before the nurses flee, one of them hands over a piece of paper to Dinah.
A little later Dinah meets Roy at the hospital. They think about the first time they met and how Black Canary helped him going cold turkey on heroin. A doctor has bad news for Roy because his daughter Lian might be in need of a kidney transplantation. Dinah shows him the list which has 15 names on it - including Roy Harper. But Dinah also recognizes the name Babette Doubel because Oracle and her are currently on the case of Babette's kidnapping also involving Vandal Savage. Dinah tells Roy about the villain looking for replacement organs and that Roy seems to be one of Savage's descendants. So Roy leaves his daughter with Dinah to look for Babette and perhaps be able to cure his daughter's illness by finding Savage ...
