Behind the scenes

  • In Halloween franchise Michael Myers (also referred to as The Shape) is a main antagonist: a masked serial killer with incredible stamina and abilities to take way more damage than usual human being. He is also known for his audible distinctive breathing. Cicada share much of the same traits.
    • Myers originated in the 1978 movie Halloween directed by John Carpenter, who was previously mentioned on Arrow.
    • It is likely that reference was meant to coincide with the release of the newest entry of the franchise, also named Halloween, which was just released in theaters as the episode aired.
