Synopsis for "Green Arrow: Rebirth"

In a Seattle restaurant, Oliver Queen tells his waiter about how his date has left early due to his "sanctimonious, holier-than-thou attitude" and his "gross" beard. After leaving, he gives a hundred-dollar bill to a homeless boy and his mother. A gust of wind blows the note from the boy's hand and down a drain. His mother goes to retrieve it but dragged into the drain.

Investigating a surge in missing persons cases among the homeless in Seattle Queen, as Green Arrow, spots a child shouting for their mother while being ushered away by a hooded person. Green Arrow, attempting to rescue the child, briefly fights with the hooded person who then reveals herself to be Black Canary.

The two bring the boy back to Oliver Queen's apartment for care. Black Canary says she found the boy in a sewer where he was trying to save his mother. The boy claims that his mother was taken by "the underground men." While Queen shaves his beard into a goatee, Canary suggests that he is a hypocrite for calling himself a social justice warrior while living such an affluent lifestyle. The boy tells Canary that they can find his father at "The Jungle", a large homeless encampment.

While searching for the boy's father at the Jungle, Oliver Queen and Black Canary continue to squabble over Canary's perceived hypocrisy of Queen's lifestyle. After finding the boy's father, the encampment is invaded by a group of "underground men". After fighting the group off Green Arrow and Black Canary interrogate one of the underground men who reveals there is an "auction" being held that night underground.

The duo head underground where they find, and then follow, a trail of blood to an old buried mansion where a black market auction is taking place for the ownership of the homeless boy's mother. The auction is being observed by a man in a red masked on a large monitor. Green Arrow and Black Canary burst in and the auction breaks into chaos. The host, wounded from an arrow, drops the woman into a pit and flees. Queen manages to save the boy's mother and swears to take down the man in the red mask before destroying the monitor with an arrow.

Back on the surface Black Canary reveals herself to Oliver Queen as Dinah Lance and the two share a kiss.
