I really suspect they're going the SMALLVILLE route with even this version of Green Arrow. He IS the Batman of his universe.
Too many elements are showing up.
One thing I'm wondering, is what are they going to do with this episode when the eventual DVD/BluRay set comes out? I mean, the story's incomplete without the ARROW second part, and yet that would be on an ARROW disc set.
I'd hope they include both parts on both disc sets. Of course, that likely means they won't.
Might be TOO much like Batman!
