Like last night's episode of The Flash, tonight's Arrow -- "Code of Silence" -- was fairly light on the Easter eggs thing. An action-packed and plot-driven episode, it didn't make much time for winks and nods.

There were also a few name-drops I couldn't actually catch: road names like Price and Wilson weren't immediately familiar in terms of who might be benefiting from them, if anyone.

You can check out my thoughts below.

So...what did we see? What did we miss?

Read on, and comment below...!

Code of Silence

This isn't the first, second or even third episode to share a name with a Springsteen song.

Demolition Team 001

Demolition Team

A minor DC Comics supervillain team who first appeared in a Len Wein/Dave Gibbons issue of Green Lantern, The Demolition Team is comics goofiness at its finest: a group of bad guys who all have construction-themed names, costumes and powers.

They didn't last long, although they did occasionally recur, during the early 2000s Superman event story "Our Worlds at War" and again in Infinite Crisis.

Tonight, we had Marc Trottier as Hardhat and Rachel Luttrell (Stargate: Atlantis) as Rosie, but there was a third character who isn't named on the episode's IMDb...

Daniel Cudmore

The actor who played Colossus in X2: X-Men United, X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men: Days of Future Past appeared as a member of the Demolition Team this week. We haven't yet been able to confirm his character name.
