"Oliver Queen is a hero. He is. He's saved this city more times than anybody can count. But he's done it all from behind a mask. So that he could take the law into his own hands. In fact, he's taken as many lives as he's saved. So, yes, Oliver Queen is a hero. That doesn't mean he's not also a criminal."
