Don’t peek behind the mask if you don’t want to know any more.  But of course you do and you will.







Corto Maltese translates into trouble

DC fans have visited this fictional island before.  In one of the greatest sequences in the seminal book The Dark Knight Returns, Corto Maltese is the focal point of a Cuban-missile crisis that spirals out of control until Superman himself is called upon to avert a nuclear crisis—and nearly dies in the process. 

In the world of Arrow, we know that Deadshot has used the island as a base of operations.  Now that Malcolm Merlyn has set up shop there who knows how much more dangerous this place can get?

What’s the Plural of Wildcat?

As we’ve noted before, boxer Ted Grant has been known to assume the identity of Wildcat.  Ah, but this episode mentions the name of Tom Bronson, another fighter who’s taken the name Wildcat.  Which Wildcat will we witness? 

Who is Felicity’s Friend?

Felicity takes a few days off to go visit her friend who was “struck by lightning and just woke up from a coma.”  Hm.  Sound like anyone we know?
