Helping Green Arrow
While sitting in his apartment one night, Diggle was paid a visit by the Green Arrow, who was bleeding out and needed help. Diggle patched him up, and was asked by Oliver to join him in his crusade to protect the city. Oliver trusted Diggle due to him not revealing his identity to anyone, telling anyone he was back, and the fact that Diggle was willing to protect Oliver's mother's life with his own. Diggle joined Oliver's crusade and the two operated as a team to protect the city.
