Fun fact: apparently one of the tattoos on Deadshot's body was Andrew Diggle, his brother (also, a bunch of other in-joke-esque names, like various comic book creators or show creators...)

Perhaps it's not so much an in-joke as it is something they hope to follow up later at some point. They did make a separate reference to his brother being killed in the same job as John.

As for John himself, I'm not so keen to see the guy cape up as some of the other posters are. I'd rather see them establish his character more before they ever consider doing so. If they were ever to do so then I'd say do it when Arrow is nearing its end, somewhere between series 3 or 5 if it goes that far. Right not I think the character works as a foil/confidant to Oliver.

You already know they're going to pull the Green Arrow and Ollie aren't the same person by having Diggs dress up as GA and appear from a distance at the same time Ollie is in public.

With him finding out about Ollie's secret and Ollie going to that lab lady for tech assistance could the show be building up Arrow's team like he has in New 52? How Ollie has people building his weapons, and acting as tech support from a distance while he fights crime?

I love Dig. I have a thing for guys who look good in a suit, can kick anyone's but and don't take gruff from anyone, like Coulson and Ianto.

He thought it was weird Deadshot had "Andrew Diggle" tattooed on his chest.

I hope Diggs doesn't get killed in action or gets addicted to the hood and try and go solo or take over.

Why would they kill off Diggs? Him and Oliver are the show's best characters. Everyone else is expendable.


Bring in The Question for season 2, and make them a trio. It would be like Human Target.

Um, Human Target while a fan favorite didn't last, so I wouldn't make that comparison.

Why would they kill him off? Hmmm...maybe for dramatic effect, cause they want to, or because he's black lol. Yeah it's been done before unfortunately.

Human Target was also on Fox. Arrow wouldn't have lasted on Fox either. The rating standards are much higher.

The CW is a mediocre network that thinks 4 million viewers is a mindblowing record. Arrow will last.

The first season of Human Target is flawless. Every episode was a winner. The biggest sell was the brotherhood and chemistry between the three leads. I'm hoping we get something similar from Oliver and Diggs.

Don't get me wrong I like Human Target. I just don't think that formula would be right for Arrow.

^He does, hilariously useless guy, that new bodyguard.

Diggle is definitely one of my favs, and the way they've developed him, he's in really good position as a supporting character. He has backstory... he's so gonna have romantic issues with his brother's widow, poor guy.

Diggle is definitely one of the best characters on the show. I so hope he never gets killed off.
