They've been mentioning the particle accelerator in newscasts for several episodes, so it would seem the most likely choice. I wonder how far the next episode will go, though, now that they've decided to do a normal pilot instead of the original idea of having the Arrow episode be a backdoor pilot.
The other question this episode raised for me was that since the island flashbacks are following the same flow of time as the current story, how are they going to handle the show if it survives beyond five seasons? He only spent five years on the island, so they'd have to stop using flashbacks at that point, if they keep this up.
