It is perfectly reasonable to ask someone if they're a DB coder or a software coder you goofball.

I mean it's accidental on the show's part but I find your statement incorrect anyway

It was better than Flash's DNA binary malware, but still awkward. Like ".NET or Java?" would have made more sense but I get it.
Now the way they use "algorithm" on the other hand is purely another word for "magic".

Yeah, no. Pure SQL jobs are basically non-existent (PL/SQL on the other hand... ) and DBAs, as the name suggest, don't code as much as analyze and administer (when they aren't a complete waste of space anyway).



But really, it was kinda cute compared to all the instances of this:

They should bring back Arsenal instead. He's already dead as far as Star City is concerned.

It is the most CW thing ever to have a sweet slowmo panning shot of everybody jumping down off the balcony into a shot of all of them standing in a circle talking. The car fight scene was really cool, though.

Like someone posted earlier, Oliver is in the crossover as GA so clearly this John thing doesn't last very long. I give it two more episodes before John doping comes up and screws everything up. Glad he's doing alright (sorta), though.

Even if John being Arrow doesn't last long, I find it cute that they took his dumb Magneto Spartan helmet out of the intro with the other super-logos since he's the Arrow for now.

Also holy poo poo come on, this is approaching Flash levels of teammates keeping secrets. John and Dinah both know John's unfit for duty yet neither of them tell Oliver because... Oliver really has faith in John? If nothing else, tell Curtis so he can make a bullshit paralysisnerve damage curing chip.

Oh and speaking of, that scene where Ollie's defending himself to the FBI investigator for supporting the Green Arrow and he's all "well hey it's not like that's a crime " uhhhh yeah i'm pretty sure that's a crime to support a known murderer/thief/cybercriminal/just every crime/general criminal organization that regularly crosses state lines and even leaves the country to commit felonies.

No, that’s how Diggle’s keeping his nerve damage/hand jitters under control: with weird back alley Chinatown designer drugs that are also apparently loving with his brain.

So, Oliver and Felicity get back together, Felicity convinces Oliver to go back to being the Green Arrow, but then decides she can't be with him if he's a vigilante and they break up again? Is that how this is going to go?

Oh, and the FBI woman knew enough about the fight to know that Diggle didn't fire any arrows, so she must have seen a video of it or something, right? But no one noticed that the Green Arrow is a totally different guy now? Like, different size, different body shape, different skin colour. I get that it was dark, but there should be enough there that you don't need the lack of arrows to tell you it's someone else. Something else.

Same thing with the anti-vigilante law. Vigilantism is already a crime. The police should already be hunting them. I forget why they aren't. Why aren't they?

Oliver usually leaves plenty of arrows behind, but there were none this time.

S2 has some poo poo where disgraced Detective Dinah's Dad advocates for letting Arrow arrowing the gently caress out of people because the police can't handle it by themselves.

Kind of comes to a head when the roided out NotBane's on JapaneseVenom year the city and police apart.
