So I've been re-watching season one on blu-ray just to satisfy my Arrow addiction during the summer, and I came up to "Trust but Verify" a few days ago, but something has been bugging me that I didn't really even think about the first time I saw the episode. We are told that Ted Gaynor had previously been in the military for six years before he created Blackhawk Squad Protection Group, and with his name being on "the list"…how was it even possible FOR Malcolm Merlyn to put Gaynor's name on the list? Did Malcolm have ties to the military or what?
