- The title possibly references Oliver being a vigilante for the first time since his release where he does not wear his hood and mask, plus Diggle and Lyla's investigation into the Dante painting that revealed the names of the Longbow Hunters, and the reveal of the Emiko Adachi's identity as the Green Arrow. But it mostly comes from a line that Felicity said to Oliver when she asks about fighting crime unmasked.
