Part 1: The Plot, Themes and Characters

  • What was the overall theme? What was the link to the episode’s name?
    • Docket No. 11-19-41-73
      • Oliver’s case number
      • Reference: The character Green Arrow first appeared in More Fun Comics #73, published in November 1941. That's right, "Docket No. 11-19-41-73" refers to Green Arrow's first ever appearance. The story, "Case of the Namesake Murders", is written by Green Arrow creator Mort Weisinger and introduced both Oliver Queen/Green Arrow and his sidekick, Roy Harper/Speedy.
      • Tonight's 'Arrow' Title Is a Major DC Comics Easter Egg (3 May 2018)
  • Fight scenes and stunts
    • Diggle parachutes into Kasnia
      • Shoots a lot of people on his way slowly down
      • Grenades; exploding truck goes over his head
      • Rescues Chance
  • The Trial - why do trials in the Arrowverse only happen in a day?
    • Trial on TV
    • Judge is in the pocket of Diaz
    • Prosecutor Alexa Von Owen not in Diaz’s pocket
    • Oliver refuses deal
    • Curtis not subpoenaed
    • Black Siren says she would testify to Green Arrow’s identity; Diaz wanted her to say Oliver was GA during Quentin’s interview
    • Felicity thanks the Newbies for showing up. *Ugh*
    • Raisa knows!!!!
    • Diggle late
    • Parade of Perjurers:
      • Dr. Elisa Schwartz: I didn’t see who GA was when BC injured
      • Diggle: 2012-16 I was his bodyguard, kept him safe. List of strange injuries.
      • Dinah: Drug dealer she killed in Hub City; she pleads the 5th
      • Felicity: Oliver tries to stop her from testifying; she does anyway; Van Owen brings up that he dad’s the Calculator, and if she wasn’t aware that her father had a secret, then she maybe she doesn’t know about Oliver; lies about not committing cyber crime
      • Oliver: Roy Harper not a vigilante; I know who GA is, but won’t reveal identity, even if he has to go to jail; has to tell the truth about not being on Lian Yu for the whole 5 years; if lied to public about those 5 years, then lying now
      • “Tommy Merlyn” bursts in during Oliver’s testimony (cool and dramatic, but falling glass could have hurt people)
      • “Tommy Merlyn” - I am Green Arrow; I don’t want someone else to ruin their life to protect me. I faked my death because of what Dad did. Rene and Diggle free “Tommy” after he’s arrested; “Tommy” turns out to be Chance
      • Diaz has Chance’s CIA file - bug in bunker; Cayden James intel
      • Laurel - Tommy is Green Arrow
    • Rene: doesn’t want Oliver to go to jail
      • Willing to break plea deal and go to jail
      • Ready to say Oliver isn’t GA, then Diaz comes in with Zoe; Oliver nods to Rene, and Rene tells truth
      • Has the idea to use Chance to be the judge
      • One good idea makes everything okay now
    • Oliver tells Jean Loring the truth; she wants him to have his “I am Iron Man” moment and highlight how he has saved the city; he refuses because he doesn’t want to put a target on his family; thought one day the mission would end and he could have a regular life after
    • Oliver tells Felicity to go to ARGUS protective custody if lose trial
    • Oliver tells William the truth; Felicity will make sure William becomes a good man
  • Trial ends
    • Verdict: Guilty
    • Loring calls for Judgment Notwithstanding the Verdict
      • Definition: reversal of a jury's verdict by the trial judge when the judge believes there was no factual basis for the verdict or it was contrary to law. The judge will then enter a different verdict as "a matter of law.”
  • Quentin and Laurel (and Diaz)
    • Quentin - Laurel, you need to stand up to him
    • Laurel - maybe if your Laurel was smarter, she would be alive
    • Laurel - no poker face around Diaz; he notices she’s been different since burning guy; he chokes her
    • Laurel lies on stand, goes to Diaz, attacks; he has a thing that stops her
  • Diggle and Dinah try to knock Diaz around, but all of the cops on are Diaz’s side, so this was pointless
  • Diaz: Plan A didn’t work; Plan B - kill everyone
