Trivia

When Oliver and Felicity are discussing her new code name (Overwatch), Oliver mentions that he thought of giving her the name "Oracle", before stating that it was taken. This is a reference to Barbara Gordon, who took the name "Oracle" after suffering a similar fate in the Batman comic "The Killing Joke" as Felicity does in the show. See more »

Goofs

It is highly unlikely that an agency with security as strict as ARGUS would ever allow an agent who was confirmed dead to have the security clearance to access a command facility - especially if such access required a retinal scan and the aforementioned corpse was missing an eyeball. See more »

Quotes

John Diggle: So how many evil organizations are you associated with? I'm beginning to lose count.
Andy Diggle: What are you talking about?
John Diggle: Shadowspire! Your old Army buddies are in Starling City. They tortured and killed an A.R.G.U.S. agent and abducted two others.
Andy Diggle: Look, I have nothing to do with them anymore. After I got discharged, they cut ties. They only want enlisted men.

Super Fun Episode
10 February 2016 | by See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this episode. Getting to see some flashbacks of Diggle and his brother, Andy, seeing how things evolved, getting into Shadowspire, ARGUS, and seeing Lyla return were all pluses in its favor. But I think the best parts, for me, were getting to see how Felicity Smoak dealt with the aftermath of the attack and her injuries, see her fight her inner demons (in the form of herself) in some great scenes, see Oliver and Felicity struggling to find an even ground and still pull through together. I totally loved that Felicity finally got her codename -- a great selection, by the way -- and that Oliver was the one to give it to her. It just makes sense. Very interested to see how, exactly, the flashback stuff ties into Damien Darhk and HIVE. You know it has to.
