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.

ARROW NEWS:

 

  1. Arrow’s New Showrunner Says Season 7 Has A Very Specific Theme (Date: 29 Aug 2018)
    1. According to Beth Schwartz, The CW series’ new showrunner, the former Star City Mayor will need to redeem himself in the eyes of the city he spent seven years defending as the Green Arrow. “The theme for Season 7 is redemption. As you’ll see, since last season when Oliver outed his identity, the city is a little bit mixed about how they feel about the Green Arrow,” she revealed at Comic-Con International in San Diego. “So his whole season is about redemption, and all the characters will touch on that as well.”
    2. https://www.cbr.com/arrow-season-7-theme-redemption/
  2. ARROWVERSE Crossover Character Breakdown Reveals Details On The Latest Incarnation Of Lois Lane (Date: 28 Aug 2018)
    1. It sounds like The CW will be sticking fairly close to the classic interpretations of Superman’s iconic love-interest. “The show is looking to cast a Caucasian woman in her early 30s as Lois Lane. Described as the daughter of US General Sam Lane, Lois is a tenacious, righteous and stubborn reporter who will go to any length to get the story and almost never fails. The breakdown reveals that she will appear in The Flash and Supergirl episodes of the crossover event, meaning that the Arrow portion won’t feature her.”

  1. ARROW’s Upcoming Season So Gritty That CW’s Censors Had To Be Called In (Date: 16 Aug 2018)
    1. The season 7 premiere will be directed by one of the show’s longtime stunt coordinators, James Bamford. He said that he’s bringing in some of the classic feelings of the inaugural season, but also with some new elements mixed in. “In the premiere you will find some elements with the Season 1 feel, but you will find other elements that is new, uncharted territory,” said Bamford. James said he and the newly-promoted showrunner Beth Schwartz have intense plans for this fall that led them to having a meeting with the networko’s censors. “Beth and I had a phone call with BNSP, which is our censors… a very lengthy phone call about a particular scene that we never had before. So we are really trying to push the limits on the show in the gritty factor,” Bamford revealed. “We are trying to go as far as you can go within the confines of our network and what is expected of us and what we can and can’t do. We are not on Netflix so we will never be able to X, Y, and Z, but we are damn sure going to try.”

ARROW CAST & INTERVIEWS:

  1. ‘Supergirl’s’ Brent Spiner Exits as Season 4 Role Recast With Bruce Boxleitner (Date: 21 Aug 2018)

Bruce Boxleitner (Tron, Babylon 5) will take over as Baker, who is described as adept and politically minded, an unlikely leader who steps up in a big way up when his country needs him most.

    1. Legends is looking to cast a currently unnamed Wolf Creature. The role is open to male and female actors of any ethnicity, but they do want the performer to be “in their late 20-40s.” Description: This alter ego is always looking for a fight and cruising for a bruising, in the Legends’ best interest. Despite its intelligence, the Wolf Creature tends to look at things through black and white while also lacking social skills. His/her relationship with the Legends will be quite an uneasy one. The Wolf Creature tends to be loyal to those that they consider their tribe. They can also be impulsive and act quite selfishly from time to time, but that’s because of their natural animal instincts. They transform into this Wolf Creature when they are angry or experiencing emotional pain or turmoil.

ARROW NEWS:

  1. The Flash Season 5 Trailer Adds a New Speedster to the Team (Date: 21 July 2018)
    1. The trailer begins by recapping the events from the Season 4 finale, where Nora helped Barry stop a satellite from crashing into Central City to her surprise identity reveal. Next, we learn Nora’s superhero name is XS, which is a nickname Barry gave her as a kid. Somehow, Nora has gotten herself stuck in the present-day, and Barry is concerned she could “Marty Mcfly herself out of existence.”

  2. The Flash Casts Chris Klein As Season 5’s Big Villain (Date: 21 July 2018)
    1. Chris Klein, known for his roles in Election and American Pie, will play the primary antagonist in the upcoming fifth season of The Flash. The actor will portray Central City’s newest menace, the DC supervillain Cicada. Introduced in 2001 by Geoff Johns and Scott Kolins in The Flash #170, the Cicada of the comics is David Hersch who was filled with regret after murdering his wife when he was struck by lightning. As a result, he gained the ability to absorb the life-force of others, allowing him to dramatically extend his life. Believing he was somehow linked to The Flash by the similar accidents in which they gained their powers, Hersch founded a cult whose members were dedicated to murdering everyone the Scarlet Speedster ever saved, using lightning bolt-shaped daggers. As the result of a vision, Hersch believed that the energy from all the people The Flash saved, and from the hero himself, would allow him to resurrect his dead wife.

David Ajala (Doctor Who, The Dark Knight) has been cast in a recurring role as “the type of guy who brings a knife to a gunfight and still walks away the winner. With a dark past, he easily deflects the brutality of his mission with his charm and sense of humor.”

Rohna Mitra has been cast in the recurring role of Mercy Graves. On Supergirl, Mercy will be “stepping out of the Luthor shadow and running her own show,” according to the character description. “With her biting wit and lethal brawn, Mercy steadily becomes a key figure in National City’s growing ‘human-first’ movement.”

In a world of shadows and dark magic, not everything is what it seems, and there’s always a price to pay. The path to redemption is never easy, and if Constantine is to succeed, he must navigate through the dark urban underbelly of Los Angeles, outwit the most cunning spawns of hell, and come face to face with arch-nemesis Nergal – all while battling his own inner demons!

ARROW NEWS:

 

  1. Arrow’s SDCC Trailer Give Us the Prison Shower Fight We Never Knew We Wanted (Date: 21 July 2018)
    1. Now referred to as Prisoner 4587, Oliver is counting down the days by leaving marks on his prison wall, while also keeping his body in fighting shape. One quick scene also shows Oliver with The Count of Monte Cristo, along with a photo of Felicity and his son, William. Thanks to Diggle, we find out Oliver has been locked up for five months with the likes of Derek Sampson (independent wrestler Cody Rhodes). Being among criminals looking for revenge leads to an epic beatdown delivered by Oliver –right in the middle of the shower stalls. From there, we learn Star City has implemented a zero tolerance policy on all vigilantism.

  2. SDCC: Arrow Cast & Crew Declassify Season 7 (Date: 21 July 2018)
  3. Highlights from the SDCC panel
  4. “The good thing is Roy is coming back,” Haynes shared. “He’s not the same person. It’s going to be very, very interesting. That’s all I can say. Beth did — she’s a genius, so she wrote me a version of the character that just was so special. It’s going to be hard for me to do, but I’m going to be happy to do it. I’m so excited to come back.”
  5. As to the crossover, Schwartz said, “We’re still working on the first half of the season, so we haven’t gotten to the crossover.”
  6. Amell: “The coolest thing about the premiere for me is… there’s nothing about him that’s heroic at all. If you’re a fan of the character and you root for the character, I really hope the premiere pisses you off,” he added. “I really enjoy it. There’s one scene in particular in the premiere where what Oliver does is reprehensible.”
  7. A young fan asked if Oliver and Felicity would ever have a child of their own. “No babies this year!” Schwartz said, ending the panel.
  8. https://www.cbr.com/sdcc-2018-arrow-season-7/
  9. ‘Arrow’ Episode 702 Title Revealed As “The Longbow Hunters” (Date: 23 July 2018)
    1. Arrow’s sixth season finale introduced The Longbow Hunters to the Arrowverse and now it sounds like the group of villains will take center stage in the second episode of the show’s seventh season. Showrunner Beth Schwartz revealed the title of the episode in a photo shared to Twitter today revealing that the episode is titled “The Longbow Hunters”.
    2. http://comicbook.com/dc/2018/07/24/arrow-season-7-episode-two-title-the-longbow-hunters/
  10. Arrow Casts a New Age of DC Heroes Character for Season 7 (Date: 21 July 2018)
    1. The CW announced at Comic-Con International that Silencer will be joining the cast of Arrow as a member of the previously teased team of Longbow Hunters, a trio of villains described as “more lethal than any the team has faced.” Silencer, along with Red Dart and Kodiak, will gather at the behest of Ricardo Diaz (Kirk Acevedo) in an attempt by Season 6’s big villain to take out Oliver Queen and his team once and for all. Played by Miranda Edwards (The Magicians, Orphan Black) Silencer is described as “a master of stealth,” which, depending on how close the character hews to her comic book incarnation, may be a massive understatement.

GENERAL DC NEWS:

 

  1. Legends of Tomorrow Turn Monster Hunters in SDCC Trailer (Date: 21 July 2018)
    1. Legends of Tomorrow Season 4 will see the team taking on “Fugitives,” which are legendary creatures wreaking havoc on time following the defeat of Mallus in Season 3. Actors Courtney Ford (Nora Darhk), Matt Ryan (John Constantine) and Jes Macallan (Ava Sharpe) will become series regulars.
    2. https://www.cbr.com/legends-of-tomorrow-season-4-trailer-sdcc/
  2. ‘Legends of Tomorrow’: Maisie Richardson-Sellers’ Role in Season 4 Revealed (Date: 21 July 2018)
    1. Maisie Richardson-Sellers will be playing an entirely new role in Season 4. Richardson-Sellers will return as a new character named Charlie. Charlie is British, and described as a “rebel without a cause” with ties to the mysterious portal of magic that the Legends opened. Apparently, the Legends stumble upon her and are unsure if she’s a friend or foe. Either way, she will definitely shake up the ship again.

  3. Rip Hunter Won’t Return in ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ Season 4 (Date: 23 July 2018)
    1. Arrowverse executive producer Marc Guggenheim has already left the door open, stating that Rip could indeed return… someday: “We love Arthur, we love having Arthur on the show, and I think Arthur enjoys being on the show. Because it’s a time travel show, and because we never saw a body, anything is possible. I think Arthur is totally willing to come back and play with us if we have a cool idea.”

  1. Why Legends of Tomorrow Isn’t Part of This Year’s Arrowverse Crossover (Date: 23 July 2018)
    1. Executive producer Keto Shimizu explained, “Tonally, we are so different from those other shows at this point, it’s hard to jump back into that world with the other Arrowverse shows. And we did it last year and it was of course this gargantuan production and pre-production. For four shows to do that again and to try and make it bigger than last time, I just don’t think it’s possible. I think the crossovers are going to be a lot different in general than what we’ve seen.”
    2. https://www.cbr.com/why-legends-tomorrow-isnt-part-arrowverse-crossover/
  2. Legends of Tomorrow Welcomes an All-Star Squadron Member in Season 4 (Date: 21 July 2018)
    1. Alaska You is the first to join the show. Played by Ramona Young, the character is described as a “typical twenty something” who will eventually become a “kickass superhero.” The second hero is actually related to an existing Legend; Hank Heywood, Nate’s father, will have a recurring role throughout the season. Played by Tom Wilson, the character’s description doesn’t mention any superpowers.

ARROW NEWS:

 

  1. Stephen Amell Reveals a Painful ‘Arrow’ First (Date: 17 July 2018)
    1. Arrow’s seventh season may show a new normal for Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell), but it sounds like new things are happening behind-the-scenes as well. In a recent tweet, Amell revealed that, after over six seasons of being on the air, he has now been “kicked in the nuts” while filming an Arrow scene. You can check out the tweet below.
    2. @StephenAmell 140 episodes, countless stunt sequences… and I managed to avoid getting kicked in the nuts… UNTIL TODAY!!! 10:03 PM – Jul 17, 2018
    3. http://comicbook.com/dc/2018/07/18/arrow-season-7-stephen-amell-oliver-queen-bts-twitter/
  2. Batwoman series from Greg Berlanti in development at The CW (Date: 17 July 2018)
    1. It turns out Greg Berlanti’s plans for Batwoman extend far beyond the annual Arrowverse crossover. The CW is developing a script for a Batwoman series for 2019, EW has learned. While there’s no casting news as of yet, the character will make her debut in this year’s DC crossover event, as Arrow star Stephen Amell announced in May. EW has also learned that the forthcoming crossover will include Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl — but not DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. The series, which has only reached a script-development deal at this point, will be written by Caroline Dries, who is also executive producing alongside Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and Geoff Johns (under his new Mad Ghost Production banner). The annual DC crossover event is slated to air in December.

GENERAL DC NEWS:

 

  1. ‘The Flash’ Star Danielle Panabaker to Make Her Directorial Debut in Season 5! (Exclusive) (Date: 16 July 2018)
    1. In addition to returning as S.T.A.R. Labs scientist Caitlin Snow in The CW series’ fifth season, actress Danielle Panabaker will be stepping behind the camera to direct an upcoming episode. “I am so humbled by this opportunity to utilize everything that I have learned as a storyteller to bring an episode of The Flash to life,” she said. “I couldn’t be more thrilled to have the chance to work alongside our extremely talented (and vast) team that works so hard to make each and every episode of the show. I wouldn’t be here without the support of my Flash family, and I am so thankful for this opportunity to continue to grow and challenge myself as an artist.

  2. Smallville alum Sam Witwer joins Supergirl season 4 as Agent Liberty (Date: 17 July 2018)
    1. Supergirl has lured in yet another Smallville vet! Sam Witwer, who starred on Smallville season 8 as Doomsday, has joined the CW superhero drama’s upcoming fourth season in the series regular role of DC Comics character Agent Liberty. In the show’s interpretation on the character, Agent Liberty is the ruthless and terrifying founder and figurehead of Children of Liberty, a hate group that supports a human-first world order. According to a description from the show’s producers, he’s “a brilliant orator in the guise of a family man” and the scariest thing about him is how easily he can convince people that he’s right. Given that Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) and the DEO tend to be pro-alien integration, it’s definitely fair to assume they won’t get along with Agent Liberty and his Children of Liberty.

ARROW NEWS:

 

  1. Arrow Cast Reunites For Photo As Season 7 Begins Production (Date: 06 July 2018)
    1. The Arrow Writers Room tweeted out a photo of Stephen Amell (Oliver Queen), Emily Bett Rickards (Felicity Smoak), David Ramsey (John Diggle) and Echo Kellum (Curtis Holt) celebrating the first table read of the season. Since this is a celebration, there was, of course, also cake involved. This is a major season in the Arrowverse, as it is the first season for new showrunner Beth Schwartz, the show is moving to Mondays at 8pm and Stephen Amell has said that he would like this season to be written as if it there is no guarantee that there will be a Season 8. So it is nice that they can start it all off with some cake.

  2. EXCLUSIVE: ‘ARROW’ Season 7 Characters Breakdown Possibly Including Batwoman (Date: 11 July 2018)
  3. “Dover” is a male in his 30-40s who is teased as a physically intimidating player. Even though he may not be the brightest person in the room, anyone who is in his presence will feel incredibly small. Whether or not “Dover” is a cover name for a DC character or not, he will be recurring this season.
  4. Next is “Leah”, a 30-something woman who is a world-class mercenary who was born to be a leader. Don’t mess with this one because once you see what “Leah” has in her toolbox of skills, you will see why those are known across the world.
  5. Last is “Angeline” who may be something we should pay great attention to. Described as a diverse woman in her 30s, she is a fierce fighter despite of her smaller stature. Not only is she experienced in stealth, “Angeline” is able to wipe out buildings filled with foes all by herself before she is gone like a ghost. It will be made very clear that “Angeline” thinks incredibly highly of her work.

ARROW NEWS:

 

  1. Ask Ausiello: Spoilers on Arrow, Empire, Roseanne, Fear TWD, B99, Timeless, Grey’s, Good Girls, Killing Eve and More (Date: 22 May 2018)
    1. In Season 7, Team Arrow will have to contend with an ambitious, young, anti-vigilante recruit at the SCPD. (If vigilantes were vampires, consider her your Buffy.) Another recurring role to be cast is that of a successful tech whiz who is gay, and who harbors a heartbreaking past.

  2. Stephen Amell Reveals Goatee Is Coming in ‘Arrow’ Season 7 (Date: 20 May 2018)
    1. Star Stephen Amell just confirmed that an iconic part of Green Arrow’s look from the DC Comics universe will debut in Arrow Season Seven on The CW. Amell told a crowd at Motor City Comic Con that he will debut Oliver Queen’s classic goatee in Arrow’s upcoming season. Amell did caution that the goatee may not be sticking around forever, possibly signaling that it will be more of an Easter egg than a lasting redesign to the character. He also made it clear that Green Arrow’s Robin Hood hat won’t be making an appearance. “I can’t promise that I’m going to keep [the goatee] forever,” he said. “I can definitely promise that I’m not going to wear the stupid hat.”
    2. http://comicbook.com/dc/2018/05/20/arrow-season-7-stephen-amell-goatee/
  3. Stephen Amell Says Next Arrowverse Crossover is Awesome, Talks Batwoman Casting (Date: 31 May 2018)
    1. Batwoman is coming to the Arrowverse, and fans are already champing at the bit for news. Amell wasn’t really able to say very much about a major event story coming up several months from now. “I know the entire story of the crossover,” Amell told the audience. “It’s awesome, and I can’t talk about it at all. Comicbook.com was on hand during The CW’s recent Upfronts presentation, where Arrow star Stephen Amell announced that Batwoman will be introduced in the upcoming Arrowverse crossover. While it’s unclear exactly how Batwoman will factor into the story, it was hinted that Gotham City will make an appearance, finally introducing it officially into the Arrowverse after years of being teased, name-dropped, and joked about.

  4. Arrow’s Stephen Amell Reveals New Approach For Season 7 (Date: 25 May 2018)
    1. Arrow fans may still be talking about the crazy Season 6 finale, but Stephen Amell already has his eyes and mind set squarely on Season 7. The actor recently spoke about the upcoming season and teased the show will be taking a new approach to how it tells its stories in Season 7. “I think that it’s going to be…we can’t go bigger than we went last year, so we’re going more specific. . . . We are gonna introduce a new storytelling technique that I’m really excited about. All that I can say.” Stephen Amell couldn’t keep a smile from creeping up his face as he talked about the new technique Arrow will use to tell its stories in Season 7. The idea to switch up how the show tells its stories could be tied to new showrunner Beth Schwartz. We have to speculate it will be tied to Oliver’s incarceration in some way. After all, Arrow could be jumping a lot between prison and Star City, assuming we’re trusting Stephen Amell, who said fans shouldn’t expect the Green Arrow to be making any jailbreak situations happen.

GENERAL DC NEWS:

 

  1. Chris ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ Season 4 Detailed Synopsis Teases Constantine & Magical Threats (Date: 17 May 2018)
    1. After defeating the demon Mallus by cuddling him to death with a giant stuffed animal named Beebo, the Legends are ready to ease off the gas. Sara (Caity Lotz) and her team join Ava Sharpe (Jes Macallan) and the Time Bureau to help clean up the last few remaining anachronisms. The job seems straightforward enough until Constantine (Matt Ryan) arrives to inform them that, in solving one major problem, they have created another, much larger one. When the Legends let time crumble in order to release and defeat Mallus, the barrier between worlds softened. History is now infected with “Fugitives” – magical creatures from myths, fairytales, and legends. Having been expelled throughout time by people like Constantine, these Fugitives are now returning to our world in droves and making a real mess of things. As the Time Bureau is distrustful of and ill-equipped to deal with magic, the Legends must team up with everyone’s favorite demonologist to set history back on track.

    • Apology tour – why does he have to apologize? To Diggle, yes. But to the newbies? No.
    • Gives Diggle a Green Arrow suit
    • Rene – thought thug at first; judged you too much; you’re a good man
    • Quentin – trust me; I feel bad about Laurel 1, so I will protect Laurel 2; reminisce about arrest, lie detector
    • Dinah – Please keep Black Siren safe; you’ve done a great thing putting vengeance aside
    • With info, FBI can take city back
    • Hospital: tells Quentin he learned how to be a good father because of him
    • Arrested. To camera, “I am the Green Arrow.” Gives speech about how he needs to take responsibility, but the city is strong and needs to keep fighting; Star City still needs saving
    • If escapes, will arrest everyone
    • Says good-bye to William; has Lyla put Felicity and William in protective custody until Diaz caught

    • Called Sara; tells Sara she is not like her Laurel

    • Called in the Longbow Hunters – 3 guys – League afraid of them
      • ‘Arrow’: Who Are the Longbow Hunters? (17 May 2018) [http://comicbook.com/dc/2018/05/17/arrow-season-6-finale-longbow-hunters/]
      • A team of supervillains who debuted Green Arrow (Vol. 5) #31 from July 2014 in the storyline “The Outsiders War, Book 6: Spoils of War”. The volume was part of DC’s New 52 era. Created by Jeff Lemire, the Longbow Hunters was assembled by Richard Dragon — that would be Ricardo Diaz’s comic book counterpart — and was comprised of Count Vertigo, Brick, Red Dart, and Killer Moth.
    • Black Siren sends him into the river
    • Alive
  • Anatoly
    • Gets caught being Oliver’s ally
    • Surrenders; tells Oliver about Diaz meeting Longbow Hunters
  • What we got right –
    • Quentin dying by saving Black Siren
    • Oliver lost (Diaz didn’t win, which is what Michelle thought would happen)
    • Oliver out as GA, prison (Chris)
    • Team Arrow kisses and makes up to fight Diaz
  • Didn’t like? Episode and/or whole season
    • Michelle: Sara in episode for less than 3 minutes; what was the point? How come the FBI didn’t help Star City until now? Is the US government awful in the Arrowverse? Lame “Captain America: Civil War” ripoff storyline. How did Diaz do all of this?
    • SP –
      • “Hoss” I mean really. I hate that term and how much it’s used. Also. All if forgiven between Rene and Oliver?
      • Longbow hunters.  Really? Out of nowhere? And we didn’t get to see them much
      • I don’t see how this could have been a series finale
      • Little to no Flashbacks. We knew this going in but it really hurt the series
      • No funeral for Quentin…and it’s not really even possible. Memorial, yes. Funeral. No.
      • So who is the Star City Mayor? Agent Watson? Seems self-serving
      • No shirtless scenes
      • So Oliver spends the entire season in prison or even part of it and gets out….then what? He is outed as The Green Arrow.
      • “You have failed this city” missing a bit
      • What happened with the startup?
      • Fractured Team
      • Dinah Ruined
      • Wedding in the Cross-over (reception in cross-over)
    • Chris –
      • Black Siren arc was dumb all season long.  Redemption arc i never bought into.
      • Wasted guest appearance by Sara.  How does she miss getting to see her Dad, she has a timeship?
      • Nobody cares about secret identities anymore.
      • Forgetting that Ollie is a competent fighter.  He doesn’t need a team.
      • no mention of Talia all season
      • no deaths of consequence when Lian Yu blew up.
      • Rene got ruined in dumb civil war
  • Did like? Episode and/or whole season
    • Michelle – The last two episodes had a lot of action; Anatoly’s alive; Thea had a good exit; Diggle and Lyla
    • SP
      • E2 Laurel Lantz/Black Siren – Katie Cassidy
      • Ricardo Diaz/Dragon – Kirk Acevedo
      • James Caden – Michael Emerson
      • Sister Wives/Nyssa al Ghul – Katrina Law
      • Cross Over (because of LoT and Supergirl)
      • Tommy Merlyn/Christopher Chance – Colin Donnell/Wil Traval
    • Chris –
      • Crossover was fantastic
      • Slade and Nyssa return
      • Setup for Supermax story. It could be great.
  • S7 predictions?
    • Michelle – Roy comes back, first words are “Thea sent me.” Diaz gets captured quickly; otherwise, Felicity will be gone too long, and the show can’t be without Felicity and Oliver most of the season. Diggle head of ARGUS, Roy, and NTA not enough to carry show; has to be resolved by crossover or the crossover deals with this mess. There has to be a better villain or maybe not one big bad all season.
    • SP –
      • Oliver gets roughed up in Prison
      • Oliver gets out of prison and puts on the hood again
      • Oliver beats up bad guys and defeats Diaz / Unknown enemy
      • CW cancels Arrow….and maybe some other shows.
    • Chris –
      • Diggle is Green Arrow and Roy comes back to support him when he hears Ollie is in jail.
      • Ollie is out of jail in 2-3 episodes. If they have balls it will be at least ? the season even ½.
      • presidential pardon for the crossover
