In 2007, Oliver and Laurel were dating. Unbeknownst to her, Oliver was cheating on her with her sister, Sara, and even took her on the Queen's Gambit with him. When tragedy struck, her boyfriend and sister's betrayal was revealed, along with the news that they may be dead. Her parents separated, and Quentin began to have a drinking problem, forcing Laurel to become her own woman early.
