“Malcolm tried to warn Ollie, I guess, but he didn’t listen. No, of course he didn’t. He would do anything to save his sister.” (Oliver & Laurel + saving their sister.)
Hi - after rewatching TTOI last week I started thinking about Malcolm's career choices (among other things) and why he didn't decide to become an actual politician. He's intelligent, probably charming enough to get votes whilst still being able to act ruthlessly when necessary, and has at least some sense of morality. I suppose if his previous job was in journalism or something similar then that might explain why he got into dealing with the media. I don't know.
