The #DCTV Secrets of ARROW: Ep 4.14 "Code of Silence...

By Amy Ratcliffe Wednesday, February 17th, 2016

There's magic in the air (quite literally) in Star City this season—and there are more secrets than just the source of that power to be found. That's why we're here to tease you with all the #DCTV Secrets hiding in each episode. If you really want to know some of the answers to these questions, check out the spoiler section... and get to the point.

We’re engaged…in pointing out secrets.

Donna is all about celebrating and making preparations for Felicity and Oliver's engagement party, but as usual, Team Arrow faces more serious problems. H.I.V.E. makes their next destructive move, and Damien Darhk gets to know Oliver's son. Oliver is still keeping that whole having a son secret close, but we're not holding back.

Here are some #DCTV Secrets from this week's episode:

  • Who is Milo Armitage?
  • Look out for the Big Bad Wolf!
  • What is the Demolition Team?
  • No, YOU’RE terrific…

Want to carry on the conversation?  Aim your sights at #DCTV on Twitter and see what clues others have tracked down.

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





Not the Nicest of Fellows

Armitage is among the group of ambitious but heinous individuals seen meeting with Darhk. He's a skilled arms dealer. In the comics, Milo Armitage appeared in GREEN ARROW #124. He was an arms dealer married to Sandra Hawke. Yes, that made him the stepfather of Connor Hawke.

He'll Huff and Puff

Captain Lance compares H.I.V.E.'s thugs to the Big Bad Wolf. The character from fairy tales has appeared in countless stories, including in Vertigo's FABLES. Known as Bigby Wolf in Bill Willingham’s beloved fantasy, the man who once terrorized the Three Little Pigs and Red Riding Hood served as Sheriff of Fabletown.

Nail Guns Instead of Actual Guns

The Demolition Team literally wrecks Star City under H.I.V.E.'s direction. The rough and tough group worked for Congressman Jason Bloch when they debuted in GREEN LANTERN #176. The likes of Rosie, Hardhat, Jackhammer, Scoopshovel, and Steamroller were part of the team. Instead of guns, they turned construction equipment like rivet guns and jackhammers into deadly weapons. Most of the group eventually met their ends at the hands of O.M.A.C.


The Gift That Keeps On Giving

We've already covered the topic of Curtis Holt in a previous installment of #DCTV Secrets, but the compliment Oliver pays to Curtis is worth noting. After Curtis presented what is basically the best engagement present ever to Felicity, Oliver tells him, "You're terrific."

Oh, is he?

See you next week!
