Oliver glared at him as he slowly slipped the ornate ring onto his finger, sighing pleasurably at the rush of power filling his veins. He allowed a brief smile.
'Why so glum, Oliver?' He gestured grandly around them. 'You're the one who made all of this possible.'
He narrowed his eyes at Merlyn. 'At what cost?'
Merlyn smiled again. 'You knew the price long before you agreed to it. Don't tell me you're having second thoughts? Everybody wins. Thea. Me. Even you.'
'You're the leader of the League of Assassins. Tell me how that's a win?'
'Everyone needs an arch nemesis.'
