ARROW NEWS:

  1. Arrow’s Stephen Amell Has Socks With Pictures of Himself and Grant Gustin (Date: 21 Oct 2019)
    1. On Monday Amell, who has been hard at work filming the final episodes of Arrow as well as episodes of the upcoming “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover event, took to Twitter to share that he had finished up work early for the day and that he was “getting comfy” at home. The Tweet included a photo of his idea of “getting comfy” and, well, these may be the best socks ever. Check it out below. No, you do not need to adjust your computer settings or your mobile device’s brightness. Those are, in fact, socks featuring both Amell and Gustin looking kind of cozy with bright red hearts around them.

  2. Arrow Showrunner Announces Last Day of Writers Room (Date: 22 Oct 2019)
    1. On Tuesday, series showrunner Beth Schwartz took to Twitter to reveal that the show’s writers room is in its last official day. She accompanied the tweet with the rather-appropriate hashtag “#EndOfAnEra”. Seeing as certain key sets for the series are already being taken down, and Amell recently revealed that he only as one episode of the series left to film, the fact that the writers room is coming to a close both is and isn’t a surprise. Still, it’s yet another heartbreaking indication of the series’ impending end.

ARROW NEWS:

  1. Arrow Had to Clear the Destruction of [SPOILER] with The Flash Writers (Date: 16 Oct 2019)
    1. “We knew pretty fast when we started breaking the season as a whole that we wanted to start — you know, we don’t have that many episodes — big, and we wanted to introduce the upcoming crisis immediately because that is what this season is about and what Oliver is struggling with the entire time,”Schwartz explained, acknowledging the show had approached the writers of The Flash for permission to destroy Earth-2. “They were very gracious about it.”
    2. At this time, it’s unknown if recurring Flash characters Harry Wells and Jesse Quick managed, both denizens of Earth-2, escaped their world’s destruction. However, according to Arrow star Stephen Amell, Oliver witnessing the destruction of an alternate Earth will continue to impact him for the rest of the season.

  2. Green Arrow and the Canaries: Arrow Spinoff Series Gets First Promo Poster (Date: 16 Oct 2019)
    1. A new poster for the upcoming female-centric Arrow spinoff spotlights the new Green Arrow Mia Smoak (Katherine McNamara), as well as the two Canaries (Katie Cassidy and Juliana Harkavy), Laurel Lance and Dinah Drake. The art was shared by Arrow co-creator Marc Guggenheim. “Arrow’s final season bows today, so it feels appropriate to share this glimpse of its future,” he wrote. Stylized to look like a comic book, the art features Laurel and Dinah in their current costumes, while Mia seems to be wearing one inspired by her father.

  1. Crisis on Infinite Earths: Stephen Lobo Cast as Jim Corrigan, AKA The Spectre (Date: 16 Oct 2019)
    1. Another DC Comics icon will make their Arrowverse debut during the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover. IGN can exclusively reveal that Detective Jim Corrigan, human host of the powerful cosmic entity known as the Spectre, will appear in the crossover.
    2. The CW has cast Stephen Lobo (Continuum, Supernatural) as Jim Corrigan. The network isn’t confirming whether The Spectre himself will appear, though given the character’s role in the original Crisis on Infinite Earths comic, that seems a distinct possibility.
    3. In the comics, Corrigan is a mortal human bonded to the Spectre, a powerful supernatural avenger. That bond is intended to give the so-called “Spirit of Vengeance” a conscience and a better perspective on mortal affairs. The two are among many heroes who do battle with the Anti-Monitor during Crisis.

FEEDBACK

DISCORD:

RandyWalker

I totally forgot that Earth-2 Laurel went back to Earth-2. NGL I totally didn’t pay attention to the ending few episodes of season 7. The FTA sucked then and it’s still bad.

Adrian Chase’s hair was sexy

yakk0dotorg

very satisfying premiere of Arrow last night. I enjoyed it a lot.

StephenJondrew

Totally agree – right from start to finish.

I loved the ending seconds. It was so good. Also, the Diggle-car scene was a fantastic moment. I enjoyed how that whole Diggle debut played out.

E-MAIL:

From David:

First off I wanted to start off by saying I am going to miss your podcast. I look forward to your arrow recap every week. A couple of thoughts. Am I the only one who notices that the Queen mansion looked different. The foyer didnt look the same as it did in season 1 and 2. Also, do you guys have any speculation as to what happened to Robert Queen on Earth 2?  The last thing I remember was that he was the hood. I also know people hate the Flash Forwards but I actually think they are building to a place where Oliver will end up in the future recruiting Mia and her team, since the Monitor told Felicity in the finale of season 7 “Believe me, the world will need her as well”
