Synopsis for "Rock and Runes Part 1"
Oliver Queen wanders across the countryside of Wales, and meets the Jones family there. The Jones are not welcoming, and he passes on his way. After he leaves, a man named Barton arrives at the family's home, and threatens to destroy Mr. Jones' artworks if he doesn't allow Barton to buy up his land. Before Barton can do so, Oliver fires an arrow that stays his hand, and Barton and his men leave.
The Jones invite Oliver into their home. They strike up a friendship, and Mr. Jones reveals that his plan to deter Barton from destroying his land is to restore an ancient druid holy place on it. Oliver agrees to help him restore the ruins, in exchange for a room and meals.
Oliver builds a friendship with Mrs. Jones, which seems to lean toward the unsavoury side. He agrees to show her son Tommy how to shoot an arrow, but as he's making his demonstration, he hears chainsaws. Barton's men are attempting to destroy the ruins, and Oliver jumps into the fray to stop them. He takes a beating, but Mr. Jones arrives in time to help him defeat the thugs. Oliver offers to pay for more equipment that will help them restore the site, and Mr. Jones is grateful.
Meanwhile, Barton contacts someone who will get the Jones family off of their land at any cost.
