    Was Thea ever exposed publicly as Arsenal or did she manage to keep it quiet?

    I think the show implied that she kept it secret.

    Thea was Speedy. Roy was Arsenal.

    Anyway, you could tell which characters were "outed" by their captions in the documentary. Oliver's said "Oliver Queen/The Green Arrow" and Rene's said "Rene Ramirez/Wild Dog," and I think Rory's mentioned he was Ragman, but Thea's just said "Thea Queen," and I think Roy's just gave his real name too.

    I think the way they described him in the end as "just a fan" was meant to imply he was only after the masks and that everyone is okay(ish).

    Also, the interview bit with Rory is after he hung up the mask, and Chimera's attack on him must have happened while he was still active, so presumably that bit of the interview is in the future from the "present day" events in the episode (as are likely most of the other interview bits as well, since it's implied they've just begun shooting this thing).

    Yeah, but it would've been reassuring to have confirmation.

    And it's interesting to get the hint that the Huntress is still an active vigilante, even though we haven't seen Helena in ages.


    Or he attacked Rory at his home in order to take the mask he didn't use anymore.


    No, just the opposite -- the documentary producer said outright that she's been conducting interviews for years but couldn't get the funding to finish the film until Oliver agreed to back it. That's how she managed to get the 2012 interview with Bodyguard Diggle, the 2016 interview with Quentin Lance, etc.

    Another great episode of Arrow this week. Stanley was creepy as hell and that scene with him and Oliver/William/Felicity was really really good. Also glad we are starting to get some connections with the future storyline, and that reveal was really nice for this mini-hiatus we will be on.

    It's kind of interesting that two weeks ago we had the Curtis fake out, and now he really is leaving the show. I'm glad they kept this a secret for as long as they did before it would have decreased the value of that other scene.

    Although it would've increased the suspense of his "death" scene if we'd known the actor was leaving the show.

    Anyway, if Curtis is relocating to Washington, DC, that creates an opportunity for him to show up on Legends of Tomorrow.

    HE MADE THE CHILI! :D

    Mia Smoak does not bode well for Oliver's survival chances in COIE....

    Has Dinah used the Cry in the previous flashforwards? I noticed she didn't use it in this one, and it would totally suck if they used this to depower her permanently.

    Not everyone uses their father's surname. And it is the future, after all.

    Besides, Mia told William she was his sister. If their only relationship was that his stepmother was her biological mother, wouldn't that just make her his stepsister? The fact that she said "sister" suggests they share the same biological father.

    Mia Smoak? "The Arrow" has NOW decided to show Oliver and Felicity's future daughter, after Barry and Iris' future daughter has been revealed on "The Flash"?:wtf:

    Felicity in the present is already pregnant so of course Oliver is the father.

    My original impression was that Ollie dies before she's born, since future William didn't seem to know he has a sister, that whole thing when Felicity abandoned him must have happened within the next 9 months, so I initially figured that Ollie might have died during COIE which prompted Felicity to leave which could sort of explain it.

    But the timeline doesn't quite add up for that, the crossover will likely be in December so Mia should already be born by then, and Felicity would have to leave fairly soon for nobody else to be aware of her being pregnant(nobody else in the future seemed aware she had a child either) so Ollie might not die after all and I think someone needs to call the Legends to make sense of this... ;)

    We saw in an earlier Flash Forward that she has a scar on her neck...but yeah, I like Dinah MUCH BETTER than any Laurel version. And I am bummed that she does NOT have a "secret" identity anymore.
