POSSIBLY WEAR A MASK?

There's an idea. There are a lot of names being thrown around for John Diggle. Wildcat. Green Lantern. The idea of who Diggle is and the accessibility he has is something that is fantastic. He's probably the most well-adjusted of all the characters on the show.
He's dealt with his crucible. He can have a life, a child and be a hero. There is no conflict. Laurel Lance is now Black Canary, wearing the costume to respect her dead sister. Arsenal is still dealing with the fact he's killed a cop. Oliver is dealing with five years on the island and not being able to connect. Diggle is the one who is accessible, the one who can be relatable to everyone.
There's something to be said about covering that up with a mask. Putting him in the field when he has a child and wife at home, with no mask, while everyone around him is in mask, that has not gone unnoticed by the fans or us. There will be an answer to that. There will be something that will be applied that conceals his identity.
Is that Wildcat? Is that the Lantern? I don't know, specifically, but there will certainly be something happening later on in this season and into next season that answers that question. Diggle has to protect his identity. Would he make a good Wildcat? Sure.
