Oliver barges into the dinner party, which is not polite. But there's a place set for him, so I guess the rude part is where he wasn't there from the beginning. As he sits down, everyone is talking about Robin Hood. And the party includes the police commissioner and John Barrowman! The Internet says that John Barrowman's name is Malcolm Merlyn, so I guess I should be calling him Malcolm. But he's clearly John Barrowman, so you can see my dilemma. The discussion drifts onto the topic of the hooded vigilante, and Oliver says, "I think the vigilante needs a better code name than 'The Hood' or 'The Hood Guy.'" Everyone agrees, especially people who recap the show. I'll just go ahead and speak for everyone on this. Malcolm suggests the name "Green Arrow" so Oliver can call it lame. I hate it when reimaginings dump on the originals. Do the creators of "Arrow" think they're too realistic and gritty to use that name? Come up with your own name, then, and let's see how good you are. Because you appear to be aware that "The Hood Guy" is an exceptionally lame eponym. And I use fancy words like "eponym," so I must know what I'm talking about.
Walter is called away by a call from Felicity Smoak, who describes The List as being written in "subsonic ultraviolet invisible ink." Subsonic? Really? No one could figure out that "subsonic" was not an entirely relevant adjective? Anyway, she says seven of the names are people the vigilante has taken on, but Walter thinks some overlap is natural since it's a long list. Felicity has decided that someone named "Doug Miller" is next to be hit, but she appears to have just arbitrarily grabbed a name that she recognizes. During this call, a policeman is let in behind Walter. The policeman is taken to the dinner party, where he whispers to the commissioner, who says that something has come up: "The vigilante has struck again. He just put an arrow in Adam Hunt." Man, if Adam were named "Mike," that would have been a hilarious line. Also, this is where we're intended to remember that the bald guy from the beginning of the episode was in an earlier episode. He's the one where Oliver stole forty million dollars with a money-transferring arrow. Oliver claims to have a phone call and excuses himself. The only polite person here is the police commissioner, who apparently did not bring his phone to the dinner. That's why that other policeman needed to bring him the message personally.
