The #DCTV Secrets of ARROW: Ep 4.17 "Beacon of Hope"

The #DCTV Secrets of ARROW: Ep 4.17 "Beacon of Hope...

By Amy Ratcliffe Wednesday, March 30th, 2016

There's magic in the air (quite literally) in Star City this season—and there are more secrets than just the source of that power to be found. That's why we're here to tease you with all the #DCTV Secrets hiding in each episode. If you really want to know some of the answers to these questions, check out the spoiler section... and get to the point.

Bee prepared to wax poetic about these carefully combed secrets.

Star City is buzzing because Brie Larvan has flown out of jail to point her stinger at Palmer Tech. (Okay, we'll stop with the apian jokes now, though if we had our way, this episode would've been called "Bee-con of Hope.") She wants the new bio-chip technology currently implanted in Felicity's spine, and with Felicity trying to dodge Brie's attacks, Curtis jumps in to assist Team Arrow. They stumble upon these secrets along the way:

  • Neal Adams isn't in Data Processing.
  • Where is Monument Point?
  • Just call him G.A.

Want to carry on the conversation?  Aim your sights at #DCTV on Twitter and see what clues others have tracked down.

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

 

 

 

 

Actually Not a Number Cruncher

Curtis had his own suspicions about the identity of the man behind the Green Arrow mask. He thought it was Neal Adams in Data Processing at Palmer Tech. Of course, Neal Adams is a creator known for writing and illustrating iconic DC stories starring Batman, Green Lantern, Green Arrow, and many others. His most famous Emerald Archer series is probably the Green Lantern/Green Arrow team-up comic he collaborated on with writer Dennis O’Neil. However, if you’re looking for something to read right now, we’d suggest his brand new Superman miniseries, SUPERMAN: THE COMING OF THE SUPERMEN.


Break It Down, Build It Up

Damien Darhk leverages whatever advantages he can and used Monument Point to connect with Amar. The city arrived on the map in JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA #44. It's near Washington, DC and was wrecked in that series by the villain Scythe. The JSA helped put the city back together and soon called the town its home; Jay Garrick even served as mayor.


Not a Nickname Sort of Guy

Curtis is overwhelmed by everything about Team Arrow. His enthusiasm helps make up for him calling the lair the Arrow Cave and calling Oliver G.A. Fans often use the "G.A." nickname when discussing Green Arrow, and in the comics, Green Lantern occasionally uses the abbreviation for his pal.

Buzz back for more secrets next week. (Sorry, couldn’t resist!)
