Arrow is back from the winter hiatus and hits the ground running with its mid-season premiere episode “Blood Debts.” The Starling Tribune reporters Chris, Neil and Stargate Pioneer discuss the episode in depth as well as a few of the DC fringes touching the show including fellow DC comic book CW shows and the DC Comic Books themselves. From the overall theme of the episode to rating the villain Anarky and the episode fight scenes the trio has fun geeking out about Arrow! Some major topics covered in tonight’s show are Felicity’s injury and possible future codename (Oracle), Anarky’s new nickname from Neil “Scary McBurn Face,” Mrs. Darhk’s involvement in Genesis and H.I.V.E., Speedy’s Love Life, our weekly guess at who’s in the flash forward grave, and the glowy tattoo Constantine put on Oliver Queen.
