Episode Quotes

Quentin Lance: I know, it sounds crazy.
Detective Lucas Hilton: Human weapons?
Quentin Lance: Look, his name is Cyrus Gold. He's the one who broke into Queen Consolidated last week. He's the one who robbed the blood bank. And he killed all those people.
Detective Lucas Hilton: Wait, hold on a second. Where are you getting all this intel? Oh, man, what's the matter with you? Talking with the vigilante's what got you demoted in the first place.
Quentin Lance: Look, we take a small squad. McCarthy and Evans from SWAT, Jones. We can bring this guy down.
Detective Lucas Hilton: I promised Jeannie I'd take her Christmas shopping.
Quentin Lance: Lucas. Please.
Detective Lucas Hilton: Fine. But you get to call Jeannie and tell her I'm not taking her shopping.
John Diggle: Even the Arrow deserves a Christmas present.
Felicity Smoak: Here.

Oliver Queen: How do I look?
Felicity Smoak: Like a hero.
Slade Wilson: You told everyone when you started this crusade that was about making up for your father's sins. That was a lie. This charade is to atone for your sins.
Oliver Queen: You're dead.
Slade Wilson: You are not a hero. Or a friend. Or a brother. You are nothing. Do not turn your back on me, not again.
Oliver Queen: You're gone.
Slade Wilson: Wherever I am... it's time you joined me. They say a coward dies a thousands deaths. But even that wouldn't be enough for you.
Oliver Queen: I tried to save you! And her.
Slade Wilson: But you couldn't. Just like you couldn't save this city. The island didn't make you strong kid. It revealed you to be weak.


  • Goof (continuity error): When Felicity goes to put the mask on Oliver, she is putting it on his bare face (there is no black makeup on his eyes). When we cut to another shot, and the camera pans around to Oliver with the mask on, he is suddenly wearing eye makeup.
  • Goof (factual errors): Warfarin has long been a main ingredient in rat poison, and is also used in a more pure form as a pharmaceutical for blood clots. However, it takes three to five days to take effect, and the dosage must be calculated very carefully to balance the actual thickness of how much blood versus the medicinal efficacy of the warfarin ingested. In addition, it has side effects, but hallucinations and excessive sweating are not among them.


  • At the end of the episode Barry Allen recives his powers, turning him into The Flash.
  • Cyrus Gold is the civilian name of a popular DC villain, Solomon Grundy.
  • Near the end of the episode, Diggle asks Oliver about Cyrus Gold's whereabouts to which Oliver responds "Died on Saturday, buried on Sunday." This alludes to the "Tale of Solomon Grundy," whose real name was Cyrus Gold before he died.
  • During the news broadcast that Barry Allen is watching, the reporter notes that her name is Linda Park. Linda would later be recast by Malese Jow and play a love interest for Barry in Season 1 of The Flash.

Really was a great midseason finale I suspected Shado was dead and Slade would be back,so those reveals did'nt surprise me. But the manner of Shado's death surprise me and i'm not happy that it was so pointless.It was going to be a sticking point between Oliver And Slade which i also already suspected,there were a lot of other ways it could had gone down. To see Slade so soon it the present though that he's the mastermind behind Blood was also surprising I'm eager to see how he starts going after Oliver and the people he cares about.
