The #DCTV Secrets of ARROW: Ep 4.20 "Genesis"

The #DCTV Secrets of ARROW: Ep 4.20 "Genesis"

By Amy Ratcliffe Wednesday, May 4th, 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.

We're wiping the slate clean with these secrets.

Darhk is back in action and ready to push Genesis into overdrive. He just wants to remake the world, no big. In his search to defeat Darhk, Oliver finds a new teacher courtesy of Constantine. While he wrestles with inner darkness (as usual), Diggle confronts Andy about his brother's terrible life decisions. These are some of the #DCTV Secrets that came up in the episode:

  • Exploring Hub City
  • Genesis ties

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





Just a Tiny Bit of Corruption

Oliver and Felicity visit Hub City to meet with Constantine's contact, Esrin Fortuna. Hub City should be plenty familiar to Legends of Tomorrow fans (and #DCTV Secrets readers!). The city known as the home of Victor Sage, a.k.a. The Question, isn't exactly what I'd call a vacation destination. Ollie and Felicity go to an underground casino, fitting since Hub City has an extensive illegal gambling operation in the comics. And as mentioned, they encounter the shaman Fortuna. In the comics, The Question is a self-taught urban shaman.

Sharing a Name

Damien Darhk's grand ambitions include using Genesis to make a better world—though his definition of a better world leaves a lot of room open for debate. While it isn’t connected to Darhk's plans, the word “Genesis” does share a name with a DC crossover event from 1997.

It’s also the name of a popular prog-rock band that went pop in the early eighties…but as catchy as “Invisible Touch” is, we kinda doubt that Arrow’s big bad named his plan after them.

See you next week... if you don't get trapped in Darhk's ark.
