Episode Notes
Josh Keaton plays Black Spider here. He also plays Spider-Man in the animated series The Spectacular Spider-Man.

The teleporter in Star City is disguised as a British Public Police Box. They haven't been used in England for almost 50 years, but on the Doctor Who series, the Doctor's TARDIS appears as a police box.

"Corner of Weisinger and Papp." Mort Weisinger and George Papp created Green Arrow.

Episode Quotes
Professor Ivo: But I won't stay where I'm not wanted.
Klarion the Witch Boy: Don't get pouty. I invented pouty.

Artemis: Did you see the look on his face? Oh, okay, he was wearing a mask. But did you see the look on his mask?

Cheshire: Hey, sis, long time, no "reveal who you really are to all your friends."

Cheshire: Why, Arrow. If you wanted another date, you only had to ask.
Artemis: You two are dating?!?
Red Arrow: What? No!

Kid Flash: Aqualad and I found the tracer on a caboose. And I don't mean Cheshire's.

Cultural References
Cheshire: But at least a kiss is still a kiss.

Cheshire quotes from Herman Hupfield's 1931 song "As Time Goes By." It was popularized in 1942 when it was sung in Casablanca, and has been covered since then by artists such as Louis Armstrong.
