Has Jesse L. Martin's back injury flared up? He seemed to be put out of commission pretty quickly with his face off-camera and then left seated for the remainder of his scenes in Star Labs.

I found this story on about a guy a couple of weeks ago livestreaming on Twitch and running into a happy, healthy looking Martin walking his dog in Vancouver.

Was this the end of Bloodwork's story?

I'm not going to comment on the episode, which really felt like a hard slog. Instead I want to ask if anybody has any interpretation of the letters in the Monitor's name. The symbols look like they should stand for the heroes who will play a part in the upcoming Crisis--at least some of them do. On the far right there's one that looks like it represents one of Oliver's arrow heads. There's one (middle-leftish) that looks like Barry's cowl. Another seems like it could be a bat. I don't know about the rest. One could be some sort of military insignia--could that stand for Diggle or Lyla?

(Okay, scratch that, I will comment and say sending Ralph away to recuperate was dumb and unnecessary, although if the writers thought they had too many characters to handle, it was an easy way to cut that number down.)

I believe you're right about the symbols. There are seven symbols and in one of the trailers Harbinger or the Monitor (I forget which) says something about gathering seven of Earth's greatest heroes to save the multiverse. The symbol on the right looks like an upside-down House of El shield.
