Go To

  • Oliver surviving for five years after washing up on Lian Yu already was a respectable feat on canon, but here? He endured twice this period, and not only he escaped Lian Yu, he climbed his way to the top by becoming one of the greatest assassins in the League ever where everyone was holding him for The Load to cull. And he did it just because he refused to leave Barry, Kara and Kal alone in the world.
    • From the castaways' perspectives, the moments when Kara and Barry's powers first manifest serves as this as they had no reason to believe they would ever have anything more than human limitations. Kara's manifestation also serves as a minor moment for Barry; with access to nothing more than his own teenage scientific knowledge, Barry is able to correctly deduce how Kryptonians might manifest powers on Earth and why those powers are limited.

  • Amanda Waller, also known as the Bitch or the Devil incarnate, blackmailing three world-class assassins to throw the basis for the Justice League, creating a prison for Fort Rozz's escapees or cleaning after the Undertaking. And she's a normal human woman, only relying on her Manipulative Bitch prowess. Don't mess with the Wall.
  • After many scenes spent shaking in front of Malcolm, the Queens finally decide to read him the riot act when he decides to meddle into Oliver's life, threatening to blow the whistle on the Undertaking if he only thinks about telling Oliver he's his blood father.
  • After a thorough trashing, Eobard Thawne pulls his master card and dangles the possibility of saving Nora in front of Barry, confident that the Flash will take the bait and create the Flashpoint event... only for Barry to refuse the deal. See, being trained by the League of Assassins helped Barry to understand that death is a natural process and moving on is not only okay, it's a necessity. Ultimately, the Flash's greatest victory was to mature beyond his grief over his mother's death.

  • The Undertaking being utterly thwarted when Supergirl locates and destroys both earthquakes engines, then Green Arrow publicly delivering Malcolm to the police before unveiling the Justice League's creation to the crowds, sending a message to the world thabks to Waller arranging for journalists being present.
  • Black Canary singlehandedly solves Baliol Prep's hostage situation, rescuing around five thousand people. Green Arrow's reaction to that is giving her a League ring, while the crowds cheer on. Gal freakking earned it.
