Sneak peeks



  • Thea says Cupid "brings a whole new meaning to crazy ex-girlfriend". This is a reference to The CW's other television series Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.
  • Thea calls Felicity, "Felicity Scissorhands", a reference to the titular protagonist of the 1990 film, Edward Scissorhands.


  • In the newspaper clipping announcing Oliver and Felicity's engagement, it states the bride and groom have degrees from the local universities, which is an error; Felicity graduated from MIT, whilst Oliver never received any degree, having dropped out of four schools, all of which were Ivy League.
    • However, it's possible Oliver and Felicity intentionally leaked incorrect information to keep their wedding low-profile.
    • Given the disorganized state of the paper's info, it may also be a joke by the producers.
