So what happened to all the guys in the basement? Did I miss something? They all just sort of vanished into thin air at the end. I guess they really weren't important in the grand scheme of things...
I'm pretty sure he was referring to faking out the audience, not the other characters. In other words, they aren't going to show viewers this grave and then say, "Haha, just kidding. Not actually dead after all!".
To be honest, I think it's pretty dumb when they do it, too. Anyway, I think it's especially frustrating in this particular instance with Bishop because she knew that back-up was on the way and would be there in minutes. At that point, there was nothing to lose by waiting and very little to gain by going in a few minutes early. To make matters worse, she left her phone behind, thus depriving herself of her only means of communication with her team.
The killer's tunnel vision isn't actually all that surprising. Such hyper-focus during stressful situations, when the adrenaline is pumping, can make a person lose sight of, or not even notice, seemingly-obvious things.
Huh. That's actually quite an intriguing theory regarding Jeanne. It would definitely rock Tony's world, wouldn't it?
Eh, I heard "the" funeral. As to the child: in the comics, the child is Connor Hawke, and he grew up to become the second Green Arrow. In terms of the series, he was conceived not too long before Oliver went on the ill-fated boating expedition. For the sake of argument, let's pretend that the child (let's call him Connor for simplicity's sake) was born at the same time that Oliver was lost. That would make him about eight now (five years of Oliver's exile, plus three or so full years back).
Pretense of realism sort of went out the door with the Lazarus Pit, so I'm going to accept Damien Darhk's magic. Plus, Constantine will be showing up soon... Damien Darhk is definitely a different sort of villain than Malcolm, Slade, or even R'as Al Ghul. Darhk would kick a puppy and then cut out its entrails just because he could. He does evil things just because he can. And boy, is Neal McDonough having fun with the role!

Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim has confirmed that the death is not a fake-out and that it will be permanent. I highly doubt that Barry's going to attempt to muck with time travel in order to bring this person back. He's seen the dangers time travel can bring - for instance, the vortex of death hovering over Central City.
I hope it's not Felicity, too. For one thing, it would be utterly ridiculous to kill off yet another love interest of Oliver. First Sara, then Shado, then Sara again, an honorable mention to McKenna Hall, Isabel Rochev, and then Sara *again*. (I would not want to be associated with this man.)
Neal McDonough was really owning the "for the evulz" aspect of the role of Damien Darhk, wasn't he? He was fantastic. Darhk and HIVE present an interesting contrast to R'as Al Ghul and the League of Assassins. Darhk and HIVE seem far more interested in evil for evil's sake, while the LoA, surprisingly enough, isn't. While the LoA has a definitely place for honor and a code of behavior, Darhk really couldn't be bothered by anything so childish as that. Or petty things like morality. Regarding Ollie and Felicity in Suburbia: why do TV writers seem to have this really weird view of suburban life? It skews towards downright creepy sometimes! Suburbanites are not Stepford Wives! Honestly, it's really rather funny. I still think the owner of the gravestone will probably be Quentin Lance, given how things are shaping up in the premiere and the fact that on TV and in movies, redemption equals death.
