Trivia

  • Ray refers to Kendra as a "real Rosie the Riveter", a reference to the American cultural icon employed during World War II. Rory nicknames two of his men "Fonzie" and "Kenickie". The former is a character from the 1970s/80s TV series, Happy Days, and the latter is a character from the 1971 musical Grease and its 1978 film adaptation of the same name.
  • Oliver Queen is featured as an old man with goatee beard and one arm, in reference to the 1986 four-issue comic book, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns:[3] in Earth-31, an aged Oliver Queen/Green Arrow helps to an aged Bruce Wayne/Batman to beat an aged Clark Kent/Superman with a Kryptonite arrow.
  • The second Green Arrow in the future, calling himself "Connor Hawke", is revealed to be the son of John Diggle. In the comics his mother is Moonday Hawke and his father is Oliver Queen.
  • Oliver mentions a warehouse at the corner of "Adams and O'Neil", referencing the creative team behind the famous Green Lantern/Green Arrow series, Neal Adams and Dennis O'Neil.
    • The warehouse also contained the number 4587 which was first seen as Vince Terranova's ident code from Wise Guys. The number would be used once again in Arrow's seventh season as Oliver's prison number from his stint at the Slabside Maximum Security Prison.
  • The alley has a political poster for someone named McCallister running for office in 2040. This is a reference to Bobby McCallister, a character who became President of the United States in 2040 on the Greg Berlanti television series Jack & Bobby.
