Arrow: Easter Eggs and DC Comics References In "Taken"

  1. Also when Samantha is telling Oliver about William being taken, she mentions that she called CCPD and it's been 48 hours and no response from them. This is weird, since Barry would have been there and gone looking for William, knowing him as Oliver's son from the timeline which got erased in the crossover. But there was no response since Barry was gone for 48 hours IN EARTH-2. This lines up with the timeline as Damien had William by the end of last week's episode, which was a day after the flash episode where they came back from Earth-2 (or sooner).

    Well, I am not sure if it counts as an easter since it is not that rare aquote, but , Felicity tells oliver that "insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, expecting something to change", which is a characteristic quote used bu Vaas in FarCry 3

    This isn't really a DC comics easter egg, but I noticed that there was a tiny wooden elephant on Detective Lance's desk. Could it be a nod to Paul Blackthorne's Poach Eggs Not Elephants campaign? Again not related to the comics but just something I found interesting.

    It's a famous quote from Albert Einstein!

    They also originally tried to get Liam Neeson to reprise his role as Ra's on Arrow. Take from that what you will.
