Don’t peek behind the mask if you don’t want to know any more.  But of course you do and you will.









It’s Brother Eye!

The appearance of Brother Eye is an interesting twist on a DC enemy.  While Arrow’s computerized terrorist was definitely driven by a person, on the page Brother Eye is a malevolent form of A.I. which controls the OMACs—humans transformed into killing machines.  Want another secret tied to this one?  Myron Forest, who appears in this episode Cooper Seldon’s roommate, is the creator of Brother Eye in the comics.   What bears watching is that some form of OMAC blueprint made a blink-or-you’ll-miss-it appearance in last week’s episode.  Start your speculating now.

Here's a great Brother Eye/OMAC story to help you with your water cooler conversations.

Wait!  Starro was in the episode?

Yes!  And no! 

Starro the Conqueror gave the original Justice League its impetus to come together.  How did you miss the attack of a giant alien starfish?  You probably didn’t.  Starro was on the T-shirt that Felicity’s boyfriend, Cooper, was wearing. 

You can’t always read too much into a secret—but we promised you we’d tell all, and for this week, we have.
