Oliver lands ashore upon The Island of Lian Yu. There, while burying his father, he finds His Father's Book, filled with blank pages, in Robert's pocket. Immediately after, a hooded man, Yao Fei, shoots Oliver with an arrow in the shoulder. Oliver awakes in Yao Fei's camp, where Yao Fei tends to his wound. Later, when Yao Fei falls asleep, Oliver tries to escape but was snared in a trap. Yao Fei later arrives, cuts him down, and walks away, leaving Oliver with no other choice but to follow him. Later, a group of armed men, their faces hidden, examine the sprung trap. Over the next few days, Oliver spends most of his time gazing at a picture of Laurel until Yao Fei brings him a bird trapped in a cage. He tells Oliver that he must kill the bird if he wants to eat and survive, at first Oliver refuses, but later, driven by hunger, he breaks the bird's neck. Yao Fei tells him that he will be forced to take more lives and tells him to forget about Laurel, or he will not survive.
Meeting Edward Fyers and Bill Wintergreen
One day Oliver and Yao Fei went hunting. Oliver tries to learn to shoot with Yao Fei's bow but misses his target, a tree. He goes to fetch the rabbit Yao Fei killed but is captured by the armed men. They bring him to their camp and he was interrogated by their leader, Edward Fyers. Fyers shows him a picture of Yao Fei, asking if Oliver had seen him. Oliver denies any knowledge of who Yao Fei in order to protect him. Not believing him, Fyers orders Deathstroke, his second in command, to torture Oliver for more information. Towards the end of the torture Yao Fei attacks both Fyers and Deathstroke in order to rescue Oliver and brings him back to the cave. He then goes to lead Edward Fyers and his men away but not before telling Oliver to survive and sealing the entrance to prevent Oliver from following him. Injured and alone in the cave, Oliver begins hallucinating. He sees visions of his father telling him to survive, otherwise his father's sacrifice would have been for nothing. He also dreams about burning his father's book. When he awakens, he tears a page out of the book, but just as he was about to throw it onto the fire, the heat from the flames causes letters to appear on the paper. He proceeds to do the same with other pages, and the names of the people corrupting Starling City, whom Oliver determines he must hunt down, appear. He promises the hallucination of his father that he will live up to this responsibility. Yao Fei returns, bringing with him a captured Fyers. He tells Oliver that Fyers had a plane that can take Oliver and him off The Island. They make their way through the woods until they are ambushed by Deathstroke and Edward Fyers's men, with Fyers saying "Do you not think it convenient you captured me so easily?". Yao Fei tells Oliver to run and begins fighting the men, unfortunately, he is soon defeated and knocked unconscious by Deathstroke. From a safe distance, Oliver watches them take Yao Fei and runs away.

The skirmish results in them tumbling and falling down to a stream. The soldier lands hard on a rock while Oliver ends up in the water. He manages to get out and dons the uniform of the dead man, where he finds a set of keys and a map of the island in one of the pockets. Oliver finds his way to the camp where Edward Fyers and his men are based, here, unfortunately accompanied by Fyers he manages to make his way to where Yao Fei was being held prisoner, but once there, Fyers knocks down Oliver and puts him in one of the cells. He tells him he knew who he was because of his eyes, which tell everything about a person, which was the reason why his men all wear balaclavas. Edward then rebukes Oliver for putting his trust in the wrong people, specifically Yao Fei. He motions to the soldier next to him, who had been the first to talk to Oliver upon his arrival. The soldier takes off his balaclava and reveals himself to be in fact Yao Fei, who had began working for Fyers. However, Yao Fei later helps Oliver escape from the camp by using a technique to fake Oliver's death.
Meeting Slade Wilson

Oliver tell him that Yao Fei sent him there. Slade tells Oliver that there was an air field and he and Yao Fei had been observing it for months and they were going to get off The Island together. He then throws a sword to Oliver and tells him that he thinks Yao Fei sent Oliver to him because he knew that he could not take the air field alone. Slade then challenges Oliver to a brief sword fight in order to gauge Oliver's fighting skills. He is unimpressed and tells Oliver that "it would be a compliment if someone told you that you fight like a girl". Slade then knocks him out. Oliver wakes tied to a chair. Slade, in order to keep his location secret, decides to kill Oliver, but Oliver manages to escape his bonds by breaking his hand, and then punches Slade in the face. Amused, Slade thinks that there might be a fighter inside of Oliver after all, and decides to train Oliver. As Oliver goes to choose a weapon, he finds the Deathstroke Mask, of the man who had tortured him under Fyers's orders. When questioned about this, Slade explained that he and his partner and friend wear the same mask, they came to the island to rescue Yao Fei as a mission from the Australian Secret Intelligence Service. The two progressively fight over an unspecified amount of time. Oliver almost gives up, though is re-motivated by Slade. When the time comes, the two of them make their way to Fyers's camp, and ultimately the airstrip to a ride home. They made camp. Oliver tried to start a fire for several hours, before Slade pulled out a lighter and helped, bemused at Oliver's anger. In return, Slade reminisced about his and his partner, Billy Wintergreen's, arrival on The Island. A day or so later, Oliver accidentally steps on a land mine that is left over from what was assumed to be World War 2. Slade runs to hide as a group of Fyers's men approach a now masked Oliver. Oliver explains his situation, as Slade has deserted him, and they survey the mine. Suddenly, Slade jumps from his hiding spot, killing all of the soldiers with his sword, replacing Oliver with one of them. They continued towards the camp, finally reaching it at dark. Oliver, aided by Slade's sniping, raced stealthily to the communications tower. He attempted to quietly take out the only man in there, but resulted in having a gun pointed at his face. He tried to remove it, but it again failed. Luckily, Slade reached him just in time, stabbing the man through the gut. They were able to contact the plane, allowing it clearance to land. Slade left, leaving Oliver on his own. Seeing his chance, Oliver grabbed a phone and called Laurel, hoping to make up for his wrongdoings. Before he could speak, Slade returned and stopped him, reminding him that it could be monitored. After a short argument, Oliver goes to find Yao Fei and rescue him. Yao Fei explains that he is staying for his own personal reasons. Edward Fyers and Billy Wintergreen, enter the tent, leading Yao Fei to knock out Oliver. When Oliver comes to, he is forced in to the middle of a circle. After questioning Fyers, he discovers that he means for Billy Wintergreen to kill him. Before this can happen, Slade causes a distraction so that he can snipe several soldiers and Oliver can run to safety. Oliver watches as Slade and Billy face off, and sees Slade overpower his ASIS ex-partner and former friend. As they are leaving, Slade is shot in the back by Fyers. Oliver helps to protect them as they leave, finally knocking out his first soldier with a move Slade had shown him earlier. When they reach Slade's plane, Oliver helps remove the bullet in Slade's arm and mocks that his only friend on the island is "Wilson".
War with Edward Fyers
Later, Oliver checks Slade's wound and finds that it's infected. He recalls the herbs Yao Fei gave him to prevent infection from his arrow wound and offers to go get them. Slade says he won't last an hour out there and Oliver says he'll get them in forty five minutes. He then goes to Yao Fei's cave and discovers a man tied up there. The man says that he was the only survivor of a shipwreck, like Oliver, and he was discovered by Fyers's men who ended up torturing him and leaving him in the cave. Oliver, thinking it's a trap, grabs the herbs and leaves the man there, presumably to die, and returns with the herbs to Slade. Oliver begins working on a broken down radio transmitter to find a way to get off of the island with Slade. After working on it for a while, they are able to hear conversations between radios, but unable to communicate back. After listening for a while, they learn that Fyers had ordered the shipment of a missile launcher big enough to destroy an entire army. Oliver and Slade are able to sneak onto Fyers's compound, where they steal the launcher's ignition chip. They call Fyers on his radio and tell him that they will return the chip in exchange for a way off of the island. Oliver and Slade meet with Fyers, who backs down from their deal by telling them that he will kill Shado, Yao Fei's daughter, if they do not give him the chip. Oliver then realizes that it was because of Shado that Yao Fei joined Edward's cause. Oliver and Slade escape with Shado and Yao Fei but during the escape he is shot telling the group that they have to leave him behind, but soon after they escape they learn that Fyer's men found the chip and took it back. Shado then tells them that she knows what Fyers's plan was.
Shado decides to begin teaching Oliver archery so that he will be able to help them defeat Fyers. She tells him to fill a bowl with water, and then continuously slap it. After a while, Oliver becomes frustrated and asks Shado what purpose this serves, and she shows him that because he spent so long slapping the water, he now has the strength in his hands to pull back a bow. She then tells him that he must now learn how to shoot. After Oliver learns how to shoot the arrow, he, Shado, and Slade are all surprised to see Yao Fei arrive at their compound, but soon see that he brought Fyers's soldiers along with him. The soldiers bring the three of them to Fyers's compound, where Oliver sees that one of the soldiers was the young man who he met in the cave who claimed to be trapped there. Fyers reveals that the reason he is on The Island is because he and his men were hired to shoot down a Ferris Aircraft on its way to China, thus destroying China's economy. Fyers then threatens to kill Shado, Slade and Oliver if Yao Fei does not film a video taking responsibility for the terrorist attack. After reluctance, Yao Fei agrees, but subtly hands Oliver a knife. After filming the video, Fyers shoots Yao Fei in the head, killing him. Just as Fyers and his men prepare to fire the missile, Oliver cuts himself free using Yao Fei's knife, and he, Slade, and Shado, fight Edward Fyers and his men. Fyers, however, is able to get the missile fired at the plane, and Oliver and Shado go to manually redirect the missile while Slade covers them. Just as Shado is about to place the chip inside the switchboard, she is attacked from behind, and Oliver manages to redirect the missile, which hits Fyers's compound instead, with both Slade and Shado still there. Oliver goes to search for them, and finds Slade alive, but then turns around to see that Fyers is still alive and had Shado in his custody. Oliver finds Yao Fei's wooden compound bow and arrow and points it at Fyers, who muses about how his meticulously executed plan over the past two years undone by a shipwrecked boy and tells him that he will get him off The Island if he would stop messing with him. With Shado's guidance Oliver shoots the arrow at Fyers and kills him, marking the first occasion that Oliver killed someone with a bow and arrow.
