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.

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. https://www.cbr.com/arrow-season-7-cast-production-begins/
  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.”

  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.

      • ‘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

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.”
