Speaking of Wesley Dodds, he's sitting in a cluttered apartment full of retro-looking doodads, like thermoses, clocks, and multiple coffee percolators. Oh, and there's a gas mask, because no crazy hoarder's pad is complete without one. He's asleep in his recliner when he starts to dream of Sylvester being killed by a pale young man wielding a giant icicle. He wakes up in a sweat and crosses the room calmly to where the gas mask is displayed with a dark green coat and hat. He stares at the mask for a while, with either reverence or dread, before donning the outfit. Now transformed into the Sandman, he studies himself in the mirror for a moment. A figure appears behind him in the mirror, too fuzzy to make out the details. The intruder says he's the one from his dream, and taunts him about the Sandman dreaming of killers. "It's time for the Sandman to finally have a good night's sleep," the stranger says, in a really annoying tone of voice. The Sandman's gas mask freezes and shatters.
Watchtower. Oliver shows up, having finally responded to one of Chloe's ten messages. They've got the poor girl in another fugly shirt this week, with a torn shred that crosses her chest in a weird way. She's frustrated because she's been trying to get in touch with the other "Super Friends" but no one's gotten back to her. She thinks the group needs structure. They need etiquette lessons about returning calls, is what they need. Oliver notes that Chloe's on a kick lately, monitoring phone conversations, bank records and emails. "Big sister is watching," Chloe quips. He notices that his own personal email is up on one of the screens. He hurries to explain: "I want you to know those messages between Canary and me were purely platonic." Chloe moves right past that and focuses on the job at hand. She pulls up Sylvester's criminal record, citing arrests for fraud and embezzlement. She says he has no family but there was a friend who showed up at the hospital. She pulls up security video from the hospital and gets a snapshot of the girl from earlier. She matches the picture to a Courtney Whitmore's high school ID card, identifying her as a sophomore. Girl is 30 if she's a day. Chloe reads from Courtney's record that she hasn't been to school in the last three weeks. Chloe doesn't think she's the killer, but she thinks the girl does know something. Chloe prints up a picture of Sylvester's glowing staff to give to Oliver. It's locked up as evidence, so it's up to Oliver to break in and get it. I guess the picture is to help him ID the right staff in case there are a bunch of them locked up in there.
