Basically, Oliver is going around assassinating a bunch of people because their name is in a book that his father gave him, even though his father really didn’t explain anything directly about the book other than he wanted his son to have it and his wanted to atone for the mistakes of his past.
Mind you, Oliver ripped a bunch of pages out of the book and used them for the fire in cave before he even realized that anything was written in it. For all we know, the first page could have said “PEOPLE TO SAVE:” and Oliver is just going out and killing them willy nilly.
Like… there are crazed people out there who go around killing people because of what they read in he Bible or the Koran or whatever, and how they perceive that information. And they’re treated as lunatics. Yet, he is bumping off people based on a would-be steno pad and no one seems to care.
What’s even more humorous is that he encounters other people who want to kill for the exact same reason that he claims to have OR WORSE and constantly tries to prevent them from doing so and usually ends up killing them.
Anyway… I’m not saying I don’t enjoy the show. I’m just pointing out how absurdly simple the premise is and how the we’re rooting for a guy that is not far off from this…
