Synopsis for "The Sounds of Violence (Part I of III) - Frequency"
Dinah wakes up in her room at JSA headquarters to the sounds of Ollie and Carter Hall arguing outside. Enraged, she races out into the hallway naked to break up their fight – much to the shock of other members of the household. She uses her sonic cry to break up their fight.
Some time later, Ollie returns to Star City, and Connor and he hit the streets trailing bad guys. They stop a group of rapists in a public parking garage, but one of them manages to run away. Ollie sends Connor to go get him. But as Connor races outside, he finds that Onomatopoeia has decapitated the fleeing rapist. Connor tries to stop the strange villain, but Onomatopoeia shoots him in the head.

- The talk-show, Regent and Shelly is intended as a pastiche of the real-world television program, Live with Regis and Kelly.
- At one point, Ollie asks Connor about his sexuality – something that has been a matter of question for some time. Connor confirms that he is indeed heterosexual in Green Arrow (Volume 3) #15.
