* The shootout of The Mayors office is incredibly frightening. Unlike other episodes where there was a feeling of reassurance knowing the Oliver as the Green Arrow will show up eventually ( which he can't because he's already there being guarded himself). This time their is none of that and we are shown what it is like to be at the mercy of a madman with a firearms.

* Roy's nightmare at the end of "The Secret Origin of Felicity Smoak". [[spoiler: He sees that it was him who killed Sara, and given what she said in the dream being exactly what she said when she died (something only the killer would know), would mean that the dream is accurate, and he ''is'' the killer, though given the fact he appeared possessed and demonstrated enough strength to ''throw arrows like darts'', implying that he still has Mirakuru-level strength, and has developed some kind of SuperpoweredEvilSide. But, the really disturbing part? Given his comments about not having much sleep recently, it could mean that ''this isn't the only time this side has came out''.]]
** [[spoiler: Except he's ''not'' under its influence and he ''didn't'' kill Sara -- the very next episode, "Guilty", reveals at the end that Sara's death by arrows triggered his subconscious to push forth the repressed memory of him killing the cop in "Seeing Red". Still frightening, and the InternalReveal leaves him devastated, but there's no SuperpoweredEvilSide left.]]

* Thea [[spoiler: getting drugged in order to kill Sara]] can be akin to/tied as a metaphor for rape. Malcolm drugged and used his daughters own body for his doing, and that's something that Rape survivors can relate too. And the scariest and most realistic part? Most people (even some of the writers) are defending him instead of Thea.

Most people (even some of the writers) are defending him instead of Thea.



** And the fact that Thea is constantly handed back to Malcolm, HER ABUSER makes it all the more terrifying.
** Thea was only 19 years old when she was drugged to [[spoiler: to kill Sara]]. Who drugged her? Malcolm Merlyn, a ''55 year old man.''
** Also doubles as a tearjerker, Thea only wanted to learn how to defend herself and even protect others. She could've gotten that, but she ended up being used and becoming a meat shield for her ''only parental figure left in her life.''
*** The worst part? Not only does Oliver let Malcolm slide for this, he gives Malcolm control of the league. Just think about the damage Malcolm can do now!
* The way that [[spoiler: Sara dies- it's terrifying, if you think about it. Shot three times in the stomach and landing back first onto the edge of a dumpster, breaking your back if there's enough force and speed from the fall, and having 3 holes in your stomach]] And guess what? the arrow's wouldn't have killed her, ''the fall did.''
* [[spoiler: Ra's murdering Thea. He appears in her apartment out of nowhere, appears to teleport in front of her when she tries to escape, and then Curbstomps her with out effort before finishing it by stabbing her with his sword. Not only is it like something right out of a horror movie, but he's just so cold and efficient about it.]]
* Nyssa [[spoiler: being forced into a heterosexual marriage]] is nightmaric for rather realistic reasons: A LOT of queer people are forced to be straight to protect themselves, and Nyssa being rather open (though not calling herself queer) about her sexuality has had a rather big consequence towards her status as an heir and causes her to be disowned (along with her being a woman)
* A meta example, Ra's [[spoiler: wanting Nyssa to produce an heir for him]] sounds a bit like rape. One of his lines is "You will have no say in this like how your mother didn't," possibly stating that Ra's may have raped Nyssa's mother to produce an heir. As well, it does seem that if Nyssa was to produce another female heir, Ra's would have that heir raped as well for his male heir, which shows off that while Ra's may be polite to a fault with most people, get on his bad side and he will ''never'' forget.

terrifying. Oliver keeps insisting that he not be killed, for no reason other than that he impregnated Thea's mother. He never considers that she'd be better off with Malcolm dead.

** "Broken Dolls" also gives us [[spoiler: Slade getting hit by one of the pirates' mortars and set on fire. It is later shown that the damage caused an extremely nasty burn on the entire right side of his head.]]

** ''League of Assassins'' has her, when she's first found by the Amazo, being dragged out in front of several men in nothing but a shirt and her underwear, with the obvious implication they were planning to gang-rape her. Dr Ivo saves her from it, but she's left terrified and shaken, so much so she flinches when he locks the door (not to stop her leaving, mind, to stop the others coming in).

* "City of Blood": Ivo's last "gift" to the world was to [[spoiler: purposely give the friendly Peter cancer in order to see if Mirakuru could cure it. With no treatment, the cancer has grown into an easily visible and unsettling-looking infection that's slowly The killing him]]. This makes his own infection retroactive LaserGuidedKarma.

** Turns out they were actually trying to save the city, but the Undertaking is now bringing down the Glades with bombs to make it look like a freak earthquake destroyed them!

* The Island as a whole. With UsefulNotes/WW2 mines laying about, armed mercs who'll grab and attack anyone they see and torture for info they may not even have, the fact that both a crashed plane and two boats have ended up there like the Bemuda Triangle, and the questionable implication of what, exactly, the hell are they even doing there. The realization that it was able to transform a shallow party boy into a hardened killer in mere years will make you think twice about any trip over seas.

* In "Who Are You?" Prometheus is revealed to have break Black Siren out of the STAR Labs Pipeline without anyone noticing. STARS Labs security maybe a joke, but the Pipeline is the one alarm that always go off, Prometheus was able to bypass all alarms. And since Black Siren has knowledge of the Waverider and Sara, it implied that he knows about every hero in the verse and all of the inherent weirdness in it.

* The Count. He was creepy enough to begin with, but once the Vertigo takes affect, he's left completely insane and terrifying on a whole other level. Even worse, he's played by [[{{Series/Fringe}} Lincoln!]]

* In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HMoqxFOAiqE the scene in "What You Leave Behind" where Oliver confronts Prometheus,]] there are murdered mooks all over the building. Thing is, those guys can't have been the same guys that Oliver killed on his original mission to take down Justin Claybourne four years earlier. So what that means is that, whoever Prometheus was, he captured, murdered, and arranged the bodies of at least a dozen people to imitate Oliver's original crime scene. ''Just to make a point.'' Also consider that he may not even be Claybourne's son at all, meaning he may be going to commit even more extreme killings to go after Oliver in the future.

* Invasion: Arrow's episode is filled this:
** Oliver and Sara remembering the horrifying events in their life; namely seeing Laurel in her hospitable gown. Doubles as a TearJerker.
**"Deathstroke" attacking Oliver and Diggle at the Queen Mansion. The music during this scene does not make it any better.
** When the group tries to leave, they are confronted by Malcolm Merlyn, Damien Darhk, The Ghosts, Deathstroke (again), and the Deathstroke goon. Each attacks Thea, Sara, Diggle, Ray and Oliver not only physically, but psychologically: Malcolm brainwashed Thea into killing Sara, Darhk killed Sara's sister, Deathstroke killed Oliver's mother and nearly destroyed his city, the Ghosts turned Diggle's brother Andy, and the Deathstroke goon killed Ray's fiancee. This really was an example of [[FaceYourFears facing their worst nightmares.]]
