Green Arrow decides to take some time off from superheroing to be a survivalist on a deserted island for a month. Without any gear, he has a boat drop him a mile or so away from the island and he fights his way there. After being stung repeatedly by jellyfish, he washes up on the beach.
Meanwhile, in the United States, an IRS agent is tracking Green Arrow in hopes of getting a strain of his DNA to prove that he's a metahuman, thereby promoting the IRS agent to the Amazo project. He offers Oliver to Count Vertigo, who accepts his offer. The two battle it out on the desolate island, eventually ending with the two nearly drowning in the ocean. Ollie drags him out of the ocean and passes out.
In the epilogue, Count Vertigo details his decision to leave the DEO so that he can protect his birth-nation. He also killed the man who figured out that Ollie Queen is Green Arrow and has been marked for termination by the DEO.
