“But I didn’t defeat him,” responded Oliver.
“But you will,” said Diggle swiftly. “We will, together! We believe in you, Oliver.”
“Yup, and I believed in you first, even though you didn’t trust me enough to share certain facts about your life,” she murmured, “but we’ll let that slide for now,” she completed hastily, as Thea and Diggle turned to stare at her.
Oliver looked up. “Let’s do it then, together! Suit up!”
