Oliver and Felicity are disappointed after they learn that William is hiding something from them.

However, when the team becomes targets for the killer, things take a bloody turn.[src]


Main cast

Guest starring



  • The episode's title is a reference to Stanley Dover's nickname.
  • Echo Kellum (Curtis Holt) makes his final appearance as a series regular before announcing his departure following the airing of this episode.
  • Oliver makes Felicity and William his "famous chili", a reference to his chili in the comics. William's commenting on it being too spicy is likely a reference to the fact that the Green Arrow is the only one who usually enjoys it, due to its spiciness.
  • Curtis leans on the fourth wall in this episode; he says "Yeah. Look at us; working together again, being targeted by a homicidal maniac. Feels like a Monday." This is a nod to the fact that in season 7, episodes of Arrow air on Monday nights (for its first five seasons, Arrow episodes aired on Wednesday nights, and aired on Thursday nights during season 6).
  • The ending with Felicity finding out she's pregnant mirrors showrunner Beth Schwartz who revealed in an interview that she found out about her pregnancy around the same time she was writing the scene. Though the crew knew Felicity was going to be pregnant before Beth.[1]
