Arrow Annotations - "Sacrifice"

Arrow Annotations -

A look at Easter Eggs from last night's episode of Arrow.

It's the final installment of Arrow Annotations!  Here's a list of all the Easter Eggs I found for Sacrifice!

Ferris Air – The Ferris Air logo is the same logo from the Green Lantern movie. 

52 Wells St. – The working title for this episode was 52 Wells St.  This would have been the 30th or so reference to 52 in the TV show.  I’m glad they changed the title, personally.

Unidac Industries – Marc Guggenheim revealed on Twitter last night that Unidac Industries is a reference to Wiseguy.  In Wiseguy, Unidac is a company that purchases other companies to sell their assets at a profit. The company is referenced several times throughout the first two seasons. 

Moira Dearden Queen - Moira shares the same middle name as her daughter.  As mentioned previously, Mia Dearden was one of Green Arrow's sidekicks, who also took up the name of Speedy.

Papp St. – The Markov Device is located under Papp St., a reference to George Papp, one of the co-creators of Green Arrow.

Puckett Station – Quentin enters the subways via Puckett Station, a reference to Kelley Puckett, one of the co-creators of Connor Hawke, Ollie’s son and the second Green Arrow.

The Glades – If you’re wondering why the Glades looked so familiar during the episode, it’s because the Arrow production team used the set from Watchmen during the episode.  Probably the most recognizable set piece is the alley way where Roy confronts the three goons, which also served as the location of a fight scene between Nite Owl, Silk Spectre and a number of thugs.

"I guess I have wicked aim." - Guggenheim confirmed that Thea's comment is foreshadowing for next season.  As if that wasn't obvious.

Kord Industries – There’s a Kord Industries sign can be seen in the background behind Roy as he’s running through the Glades.

Tommy's Fate - Not really an Easter Egg, but check out the cupcakes Colin Donnell's girlfriend made for last night's episode.  Funny stuff.

So, that's a rap.  Thanks for making the column a hit, and we'll see you all this fall for Season 2!

If you enjoy these sort of columns, be sure to check S.H.I.E.L.D. Dossiers, which will take a look at easter eggs and whatnot from ABC's Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, coming this fall to the Outhouse.
