In the era of Peak TV, it can be hard for shows to find footing and last for a long period of time. In its seventh season, The CW's Arrow has not only managed to carve out its groove and find a loyal fanbase, but also provide a springboard for four spin-off series and the beginning of a connected TV universe called the Arrowverse. The show recently celebrated its 150th episode, and with that comes a justified bit of fanfare and honoring the past.
The milestone episode did things a bit different and shot much of the episode in a documentary style with a crew following around Oliver and his friends. There were plenty of Easter eggs and call backs hidden within.

This allowed the show to bring back now-deceased characters. The episode opens with a 2014 interview of Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne) who died at the end of Season 6 at the hands of Ricardo Diaz.Is this a cool Easter egg?
