When Roy Harper wants a raise on his allowance so that he can buy a boat, Oliver Queen suggests that he go out and get a job and earn the extra money he needs. Deciding to hire out his services as Speedy, Green Arrow's sidekick is hired to test out archery targets. What Speedy doesn't know however, is that people who hired him are criminals and are making casts of the indentations his arrows are making in the targets to make a false arrow head with a bomb inside in the hopes of eliminating both Speed and Green Arrow.
Successfully putting the exploding arrow head on an arrow next time Speedy comes for practice, one of the crooks also takes Speedy's wallet when he drops it on the ground. However, the plot is spoiled when Speedy notices that the arrow he got back did not have red paint on it from the target it hit, and the bomb goes off without harming anyone.
