Episode Quotes

Roy Harper: What are you doing? If you stick that in me, I'll kill you.
Brother Blood: No, brother Roy. You'll kill for me.
Oliver Queen: Barry. The rat poison that you gave me... are there any side effects?
Barry Allen: Uh, yeah, I think hallucinations, maybe. And excessive sweating. Are you sweating excessively?
Felicity Smoak: You're hallucinating? What do you see?
Oliver Queen: A girl named Shado that that was with me on the island.
Felicity Smoak: Shado. Sara. How many women were you marooned with? Are you sure this wasn't Fantasy Island?
Barry Allen: You did train in a jungle or a forest environment, hence the green.
John Diggle: If you get bored, I keep a book of crossword puzzles in the glove box.
Oliver Queen: That's not funny.

Mistakes/Goofs

  • 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.

Trivia

  • 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 (2014).
  • SPOILER: At the end, Barry Allen receives his powers, turning him into The Flash.
  • SPOILER: The episode is modelled after A Christmas Carol with the protagonist being visited by a series of ghosts. However while Shado is a good match for ghost of Christmas past and Slade appearing as the ghost of christmas present hints at him being the main enemy for this season, Tommy appears as what should be the ghost of Christmas yet to come. Unless Tommy returns from the dead in a future season his inclusion is odd.
  • The episode where Oliver receives his compressible micro fabric mask, custom made by Barry Allen, after Barry points out that grease paint is a poor identity concealer. Oliver's criteria for a mask was one that conforms perfectly to his face and doesn't affect his ability to aim while on the run.

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.
