Chris Ferrell is a long time fan of a variety of so called nerdy things. Growing up he was introduced to Star War, Star Trek, and Babylon 5 by his father. That grew into a love of just about all Sci Fi and fantasy. Add in his fanboy nature when it comes to comics and Chris probably has too many things he's interested in.

Nowadays Chris espouses his love for all things good and nerdy in both podcast and blogging forms. Chris is a staff writer at Gonna Geek. In addition to that he is the co-host of a bunch of podcasts. Basically, if you want to hear someone ramble about nerdy things, Chris can do it.

Podcasts: All Things Good and Nerdy, GonnaGeek.com Podcast, The Starling Tribune and WTWD Radio Free Woodbury.

SP as he is known to his close associates has dedicated his life to working within the system to bring geeky humor and science fiction points of view to the mindless minions in charge of providing the freedoms, security and infrastructure to our lives. Given the opportunity, SP would gladly slip through the Stargate to begin colonizing a new planet and living the Little House On The Prairie life or suit up to mine the solar system's asteroids for precious metals, gems and hidden signs of ancient advanced societies. SP has a lifelong fascination with geeky shows, advanced technologies, revolutionary science and apocalyptic tales.

Part 1: The Plot, Themes and Characters

  • What was the overall theme? What was the link to the episode’s name?
    • Docket No. 11-19-41-73
      • Oliver’s case number
      • Reference: The character Green Arrow first appeared in More Fun Comics #73, published in November 1941. That’s right, “Docket No. 11-19-41-73” refers to Green Arrow’s first ever appearance. The story, “Case of the Namesake Murders”, is written by Green Arrow creator Mort Weisinger and introduced both Oliver Queen/Green Arrow and his sidekick, Roy Harper/Speedy.
      • Tonight’s ‘Arrow’ Title Is a Major DC Comics Easter Egg (3 May 2018) http://comicbook.com/dc/2018/05/03/arrow-season-6-episode-21-dc-comics-easter-egg/
  • Fight scenes and stunts
    • Diggle parachutes into Kasnia
      • Shoots a lot of people on his way slowly down
      • Grenades; exploding truck goes over his head
      • Rescues Chance
  • The Trial – why do trials in the Arrowverse only happen in a day?
    • Trial on TV
    • Judge is in the pocket of Diaz
    • Prosecutor Alexa Von Owen not in Diaz’s pocket
    • Oliver refuses deal
    • Curtis not subpoenaed
    • Black Siren says she would testify to Green Arrow’s identity; Diaz wanted her to say Oliver was GA during Quentin’s interview
    • Felicity thanks the Newbies for showing up. *Ugh*
    • Raisa knows!!!!
    • Diggle late
    • Parade of Perjurers:
      • Dr. Elisa Schwartz: I didn’t see who GA was when BC injured
      • Diggle: 2012-16 I was his bodyguard, kept him safe. List of strange injuries.
      • Dinah: Drug dealer she killed in Hub City; she pleads the 5th
      • Felicity: Oliver tries to stop her from testifying; she does anyway; Van Owen brings up that he dad’s the Calculator, and if she wasn’t aware that her father had a secret, then she maybe she doesn’t know about Oliver; lies about not committing cyber crime
      • Oliver: Roy Harper not a vigilante; I know who GA is, but won’t reveal identity, even if he has to go to jail; has to tell the truth about not being on Lian Yu for the whole 5 years; if lied to public about those 5 years, then lying now
      • “Tommy Merlyn” bursts in during Oliver’s testimony (cool and dramatic, but falling glass could have hurt people)
      • “Tommy Merlyn” – I am Green Arrow; I don’t want someone else to ruin their life to protect me. I faked my death because of what Dad did. Rene and Diggle free “Tommy” after he’s arrested; “Tommy” turns out to be Chance
      • Diaz has Chance’s CIA file – bug in bunker; Cayden James intel
      • Laurel – Tommy is Green Arrow
    • Rene: doesn’t want Oliver to go to jail
      • Willing to break plea deal and go to jail
      • Ready to say Oliver isn’t GA, then Diaz comes in with Zoe; Oliver nods to Rene, and Rene tells truth
      • Has the idea to use Chance to be the judge
      • One good idea makes everything okay now
    • Oliver tells Jean Loring the truth; she wants him to have his “I am Iron Man” moment and highlight how he has saved the city; he refuses because he doesn’t want to put a target on his family; thought one day the mission would end and he could have a regular life after
    • Oliver tells Felicity to go to ARGUS protective custody if lose trial
    • Oliver tells William the truth; Felicity will make sure William becomes a good man
  • Trial ends
    • Verdict: Guilty
    • Loring calls for Judgment Notwithstanding the Verdict
      • Definition: reversal of a jury’s verdict by the trial judge when the judge believes there was no factual basis for the verdict or it was contrary to law. The judge will then enter a different verdict as “a matter of law.”
  • Quentin and Laurel (and Diaz)
    • Quentin – Laurel, you need to stand up to him
    • Laurel – maybe if your Laurel was smarter, she would be alive
    • Laurel – no poker face around Diaz; he notices she’s been different since burning guy; he chokes her
    • Laurel lies on stand, goes to Diaz, attacks; he has a thing that stops her
  • Diggle and Dinah try to knock Diaz around, but all of the cops on are Diaz’s side, so this was pointless
  • Diaz: Plan A didn’t work; Plan B – kill everyone

  1. Chris Legends of Tomorrow boss addresses returns of Amaya, Rip, and more (Date: 13 April 2018)
    1. “Yes, Maisie will absolutely be back,” executive producer Marc Guggenheim told EW. “We just felt like we owed it to the character to complete this arc, complete this story loop that we got her in. Once we took her off of her path in 1942, it was always incumbent upon us to return her to that path. That was something that hung over us as writers, and hung over the character… I’m looking forward to a different storyline for Amaya next year.”

ARROW NEWS:

 

  1. The CW Renews 10 Series: ‘Riverdale’, All 5 DC Shows, ‘Supernatural’, ‘Dynasty’, ‘Jane the Virgin’ & ‘Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’ (Date: 02 April 2018)
    1. The CW again has given an early renewal to the bulk of its lineup, picking up all returning series on its fall schedule for the 2018-19 season as well as freshmen Dynasty and Black Lightning. The list includes all five DC superhero series, The Flash (Season 5), Arrow (Season 7), Supergirl (Season 4) and Legends of Tomorrow (Season 4), joined by newcomer Black Lighting (Season 2) as well as the venerable Supernatural, picked up for a 14th (!) season, sophomore success Riverdale (Season 3) and  comedies Jane the Virgin (Season 5) and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (Season 4) for what could be the praised duo’s final seasons.

  2. Spoiler Room: Scoop on The Originals, New Girl, NCIS: LA and more (Date: 05 April 2018)
    1. As Oliver continues to alienate everyone who loves him, expect to see more of the same in the season-ender — though it may not end the way you’d expect. “It’s a very unusual kind of finale,” EP Marc Guggenheim says. “It definitely has a cliffhanger, but not a traditional cliffhanger. Last year’s finale was a traditional cliffhanger. It was very much an ‘Oh my God, what’s going to happen?’ This is a different kind of cliffhanger. I would say it’s somewhere on the spectrum of the cliffhanger of season 1, which was like, ‘How is Oliver gonna go forward?’ and the cliffhanger of season 5, which was more of a traditional cliffhanger. This, I think, falls somewhere in the middle. We have a few surprises up our sleeves. There’s a couple of twists, there’s a couple of things that we’re doing that are not only very unexpected, but also unprecedented not just for Arrow, but for the other DC superhero shows as well.”

GENERAL DC NEWS:

 

  1. Exclusive: Nicolas Cage plays Superman, Halsey is Wonder Woman in ‘Teen Titans GO!’ (Date: 12 March 2018)
    1. Nicolas Cage is voicing A-list comic-book icon Superman, singer/songwriter Halsey co-stars as Amazon princess Wonder Woman — who travels around in her signature invisible jet — and rapper Lil Yachty plays Green Lantern in the upcoming animated movie (in theaters July 27) that takes the young heroes of the Cartoon Network show Teen Titans GO! to the big screen.

  2. Ava DuVernay to Direct DC’s ‘New Gods’ (Date: 15 March 2018)
    1. A Wrinkle in Time filmmaker Ava DuVernay will finally make her superhero debut…with an adaptation of Jack Kirby’s epic The New Gods, Deadline reports. Set after Ragnarok and the birth of a new generation of gods, The New Gods was part of Jack Kirby’s Fourth World cycle of storytelling, along with Mister Miracle and The Forever People. The story pits the evil gods of Apokolips, led by Darkseid, against the bright and idealistic gods of New Genesis, led by Highfather. Mister Miracle is the son of Highfather, who was raised on Apokolips as a kind of mutually-assured destruction pact with Darkseid, who sent his son Orion to be raised on New Genesis. Miracle is perhaps the most marketable of all of the New Gods characters, along with his wife, Big Barda, and Orion himself.

ARROW NEWS:

 

  1. ‘Arrow’s Roy Harper Arc Will Take a One Week Break (Date: 22 Feb 2018)
    1. On Thursday, March 15th, The CW will not be airing a new episode of Arrow, and will instead be re-airing the episode “All For Nothing”. This brief programming change is largely due to what’s airing before Arrow, with Supernatural being replaced by a one-hour special titled “Tough Mudder: Tougher Together”. This means that “The Thanatos Guild”, the sixteenth episode of this season, will presumably be airing a week later, on March 22nd. While details on this episode are scarce, we know that it will be part of Roy’s short multi-episode arc, which is expected to have a major effect on one Arrow mainstay. And if that wasn’t enough, the episode will also feature the return appearance of Nyssa al Ghul (Katrina Law), who was last seen in the season five finale.

GENERAL DC NEWS:

 

  1. Jonah Hex Confirmed for ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ Season 3 Finale (Date: 20 Feb 2018)
    1. Jonah Hex (Johnathon Schaech) will return to DC’s Legends of Tomorrow for its season 3 finale, ComicBook.com has confirmed. Warner Bros. Television confirmed the speculation, but had no comment as to what role Hex might play in the episode.

  1. Chris The Flash’s Violett Beane to appear on Legends of Tomorrow (Date: 21 Feb 2018)
    1. The Flash‘s Violett Beane, a.k.a. Jesse Quick, will make an appearance in the 15th episode of Legends of Tomorrow, EW has learned. Details on what brings her to the Waverider are being kept under wraps, but the episode in question is titled “Necromancing the Stone.” Her arrival comes on the heels of Wally West (Keiynan Lonsdale) joining the Legends — he briefly appeared at the close of Monday’s episode as Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) set out to recruit him. Beane will also return to The Flash in the Tuesday, March 6 episode, teaming up with the Scarlet Speedster and Jay Garrick (John Wesley Shipp) to stop a nuclear bomb from destroying Central City.

  1. Legends of Tomorrow: John Noble will actually appear — but there’s a twist! (Date: 19 Feb 2018)
    1. EW has learned exclusively that the actor, who has been voicing this season’s big bad Mallus, will appear as himself in an upcoming episode of Legends. Yes, as himself. Seriously. As EW previously revealed, the time demon Mallus will be an entirely CG creation, hence Noble appearing in a different capacity.
