Cupid returned today in a new episode of Arrow, the first in a while.
And while it was pretty heavy on story and character development, it was pretty light on the Easter eggs.
Unless, of course, we missed some? Anyway, here's what we saw.
So...what did we see tonight? What did we miss?
Read on, and comment below.
In the comics, Carrie Cutter is (as here) the obsessed Green Arrow fan known as Cupid, who makes it her mission to go after the women in Green Arrow's life.
In the comics, of course, that meant Black Canary (especially since she was introduced during Arrow Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg's run on Green Arrow/Black Canary comics).
On TV, that's typically been...well, you can guess.prevnext
Markovia isn't an entirely unfamiliar name to viewers of Arrow, who will remember that it was mentioned in the episode "State vs. Queen."
In the comics, it's a nation run by Brion Markov, who is a superhero named Geo-Force and who had a sister named Terra who was killed by Deathstroke (Slade Wilson).
On Arrow, of course, Markov designed the earthquake machine in the episode "Tremors," but doesn't seem to have enough juice to get a whole country named after him...so it seems to be either coincidence, or perhaps some as-yet-unrevealed backstory. Also, he's dead now.
In any event, Geo-Force has powers that could be used to create or simulate an earthquake by manipulating the earth itself.
You know, both Geo-Force and Green Arrow have been known to work with The Outsiders, a group that occasionally poke their nose in Markovian politics and who also often work with Katana...!prevnext
When Felicity made the remark about Cutter "taking crazy ex-girlfriend to the next level," all I could think of was...
...The CW's Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, which is a surprisingly good show.
Along with the rest of the CW lineup, it was recently renewed for next season.prevnext
The fandom christened Oliver and Felicity "Olicity" long before they were an official couple -- and apparently, now the celebrity press of Starling City has followed suit.
Following their fake nuptials, Oliver and Felicity's celebrity couple name appeared on the Channel 52 news.
Is this the first time we've seen it actually ON the show?prevnext
This one's a heck of a stretch, but the cell number next to where they're keeping Damien Darhk is "S-6," so it's very likely somebody will comment about the DC team Secret Six, if I don't do it here.prevnext
