This was a classic Suicide Squad mission with the team heading to Markovia to foil a terrorist plot set to utilize a deadly nerve agent, We had references to Kahndaq and Qurac in the episode too. Could Black Adam and Queen Bee respectively be next to visit CW’s Arrow?
A crazed female prison mate of Deadshot yells out “I’m a trained therapist!” In the DC Comics New 52, Dr. Harleen Quinzel a.k.a. “Harley Quinn” is a member of the Suicide Squad. It sure looks like she’s next to debut despite us hearing, but not seeing her on camera.
(2) Amanda Waller’s Explosive Leash
Shrapnel is expendable. He escapes mid-mission and has his micro-chip triggered. He explodes and presumably dies. However, I imagine because he is the villain Shrapnel, he’ll be able to reconstitute his body and come back for revenge.
(1) Suicide Squad vs. Deathstroke Coming?
Oliver Queen, the titular Green “Arrow”, seeks Amanda Waller’s help in tracking down Slade Wilson, who has promised to destroy his former Island “brother” turned enemy Oliver Queen and all he loves, whose swath of destruction across the globe the Suicide Squad matriarch has been monitoring; she’s dubbed Slade Wilson… “Deathstroke“.
An excellent episode! A video teaser for the episode follows.
