Arrow Secrets: “Dark Waters”



Ollie returned to the Amazo this week. We haven’t seen the ship on Arrow in a couple of seasons, so let’s cover its namesake’s background. Amazo is an evil android created to take down the Justice League by Anthony Ivo, who just happened to be the captain of the Amazo freighter when it was seaworthy. I wonder if the Amazo made its return this week because Red Tornado made an appearance on Supergirl last week: Red Tornado and Amazo are similar.


Mina Fayad

“Ms. Fayad” had her name dropped on “Dark Waters.” She was the one who put a hit out on Andy Diggle, and we saw Darhk kill her earlier this season for trying, and failing, to have Double Down kill Damien. From the sound of it, she may not be as dead as we had first thought.


The Force Choke

Even though Mark Hamill guest-starred, The Flash wasn’t the only DC Comics show to reference Star Wars this week. If the move Damien Darhk used on Malcolm Merlyn looked familiar, it should. Darhk was using one of Darth Vader’s signature moves, the force choke.

Arrow and Flash love them some News 52 (see the microphone above), which is a reference to DC’s New 52.
