Synopsis for "Green Arrow: Year One, Part Six"

In the command bunker, grenades are tossed down, forcing Oliver to jump into the water. Meanwhile, the freed slaves continue to rise up, but Taiana insists on not leaving without Oliver.

On the sinking freighter, Ollie shoots a flaming arrow at some fuel oil barrels, forcing the passengers to abandon ship. Suddenly, Hackett jumps down from a crane and points his gun at Oliver. However, behind him, Taiana is also holding him at gunpoint. Hackett tries to goad Ollie into killing him, but Oliver tells him the world doesn't have to be the survival of the fittest. Just then, Hackett is shot in the back by China White, and the two proceed to standoff until Oliver shoots the rope holding a cargo crate, which falls on China and her men. Suddenly, Taiana starts to go into labor. She births a baby girl, who she names "Queen" in her native language, after the man who fought for their freedom.

Later, American soldiers apprehend China White while Oliver suggests that Taiana starts a new life back on the mainland. She politely declines, insisting that peace is all she wants. Ollie offers to downplay the whole event, and finally realizes what he wants to do with his life. Back at home, Oliver dons a new all-green masked costume as he patrols at night.
