Our new recruits Wilddog and Evelyn Sharp ignore Oliver’s instructions and go after drug dealer Derick Sampson themselves.

But things go awry when Evelyn kills Sampson and Wilddog sends him tumbling into a vat of chemicals.

What? Did I say vat of chemicals? Holy Super-Villain Origin!

Plus, a surprise reveal when John Diggle is placed in the same cell as da-da-dah! Floyd Lawton –  Deadshot… only to find out later John was imagining the entire thing because of guilt over killing his own brother, Andy Diggle.

But the real reveal in this episode wasn’t a person but a costume and a code name!!

Presenting Curtis Holt  – Mr. Terrific!

And Curtis reveals his moniker and Fair Play jacket are in tribute to Terry Sloan, the wrestler known as Mr. Terrific!

In the comics Terry Sloan’s Mr. Terrific fought alongside the JSA in the 1940’s and Curtis’ comic counter part Michael Holt’s Mr. Terrific with the present day JSA!

Suit up!

All suited up, the new Team Arrow take on their first formal mission and defeat Derick Sampson.

But the episode closes with Lila Diggle asking Oliver to break John Diggle out of jail.

Can Team Arrow fight their way through Iron Heights to get to John Diggle? And does he even want to get out?
