Appearing in "When the Old Clock... Died!"
Synopsis for "When the Old Clock... Died!"
Oliver Queen stops a young girl from being nabbed for stealing a hot dog, and she explains that she stole it because she is hungry; her name is Ronnie Tempus, and her grandfather, with whom she lives, spends all their money on a grandfather clock. When Ollie takes Ronnie to her grandfather's home, the old man explains that his father built the clock, and he feels that he must maintain it in working order, since he believes that when it stops, he will die. The Clock King seeks to steal the timepiece, and Oliver becomes Green Arrow to defeat him. But the grandfather clock stops, and Mr. Tempus has a heart attack. Green Arrow manages to keep Mr. Tempus alive and gets him to a hospital. Later Tempus thanks Green Arrow for having shown him what is really important in life...people, not clocks.
