Tommy found it a bit surreal to be standing in a room full of Moira Queen for Mayor signs when nine months ago she had been arrested for conspiracy to commit an act of domestic terrorism.

He'd stood by Oliver's side throughout Moira's trial, sitting beside him whenever court was in session. He'd been there when Moira confessed to having had a brief affair with his father shortly after his mom died.

Tommy looked to where Oliver was talking with Digg and Felicity and his heart swelled. Their relationship was stronger than ever. Oliver had officially moved in with him six months ago and they had settled into a comfortable routine.
