Synopsis for "Black Canary"
Oliver Queen takes the Sherwood Florist's van to the Handee Wash, getting some coffee in the meantime. While he's gone, an employee of the car wash named Rita Librado stumbles upon the proprietor, Eric, doing something suspicious. Elsewhere, Dinah Lance enters a jewelers' store to pick up an item.
Oliver returns home and books a trip to Anchorage, Alaska so he can see the Iditarod dog sled race, and investigate a connection with a Chinese Tong gang. When he tells Dinah, and asks her to come with her, she seems disappointed, saying that she can't go because she has to run the business. She allows him to go, however, despite her feelings.
Rita, having noticed the Sherwood Florist's logo on the van when Ollie got it washed, visits Dinah to thank he for staying with her in the ambulance when she had overdosed on drugs during the Robin Hood Killer case. Rita and Dinah go to a coffee shop where Rita reveals that she was fired from her job under suspicious circumstances.
When Dinah returns home she finds a note from Oliver saying that that he has left for Alaska, and left her a crock pot full of his excellent chili. She finds herself feeling lonely, but resolves to deal with her feelings and bad memories. She goes out in the shop's van and tails Eric from the Handee wash to a ferry terminal, where she discovers that his end destination is Anchorage. When she returns home, she realizes that her own personal car has been stolen.
On the ferry, Oliver sees Dinah's car, thinking she has changed her mind. But when he inquires after her, there is no record of any Dinah Lance on the ferry. Oliver tricks the thief into revealing himself as a Chinese Tong gang member. Oliver plans to sneak into trunk, and get a jump on his quarry, but finds several bags of drugs under the spare tire.
