Added DiffLines:

* SaveTheVillain: Played with but averted. Oliver-X is [[BigNo so shocked at his wife's death]] that Oliver could kill him easily--he has an arrow ready but refuses to shoot his EvilCounterpart InTheBack. But then Oliver-X angrily says IllKillYou and turns to fire, only to catch an arrow in the heart.

* WhatMeasureIsAMook: Snart actually scolds Mick for roasting Nazis left and right instead of granting them due process. It's not clear if he is serious or just {{Troll}}ing Mick, since this attitude wouldn't have served him well on Earth-X.

* BigNo: Black Arrow's response to Overgirl's death, complete with momentarily falling to his knees in despair.
* BittersweetEnding: The invasion is repelled, Black Arrow and Overgirl are dead and both Barry and Iris as well as Oliver and Felicity get married. However, Earth-X still isn't freed from Nazi control and the Reverse-Flash pulls a KarmaHoudini yet ''again''. Plus, Stein is dead.

* VillainousBreakdown: Black Arrow begins having one after it is clear that Overgirl is going to die, no matter what, proceeding to order his troops to destroy Central City.

His breakdown is short-lived, as he immediately gets an arrow to the chest after standing up.
* VillainousValor: Even after all of his troops have been beaten, Thawne has deserted him and Overgirl is dead, Black Arrow still tries to attack Green Arrow. It does him no good.

* IdiotBall: Barry just letting Thawne run away. It's not like he couldn't have locked him up instead of having to choose between killing him and letting him run free. Somewhat justified, as Thawne would just find a way [[JokerImmunnity to return anyway]] due to the [[TimeyWimeyBall Timey-Wimey]] nature of his existence.
