Starling Tribune - Season 3 Edition – Draw Back Your Bow
The Starling Tribune reporters go Chris-less this week as Wing, Jay and Stargte Pioneer take on the 7th episode of Arrow’s 3rd season “Draw Back Your Bow.” Everyone is excited enough to go over last episode’s boxing glove arrow AGAIN while Wing is so excited that Arrow started to call Roy Arsenal that he doesn’t even wait for the regular conversation to start before he mentions it.
It’s a big Ray Palmer episode as the Queen Consolidated gets a face lift and discussion into the yet to be seen A.T.O.M. suit ensues including the comic book history into the A.T.O.M. character, Arrow’s plans for whether he will be miniaturized or not, and what does Felicity’s dress have to do with the suit? The reporters admit that Ray can be pretty sneaky with his co-regeneration technology, and they also discuss Brandon Routh’s Salmon Ladder technique as SP thinks about building one. If you have not yet had enough of the two super-men in this show the reporters take time out to discuss the similarities and difference between Brandon Routh and Stephen Amell.
The reporters take a look at Cupid and not doubting her abilities wonder just how she could take down Roy. And Wing and Jay deflate at the one line in the episode which summarily seals Harley Quinn’s fate within Arrow. The reporters also delve into a SECOND comparison in the episode but this time between Cupid and The Huntress. And let’s not forget the magically properties of bowls of water in Arrow either!
Dating Thea is obviously complicated with as many man issues as she has in her life. And The Reporters search the comic to bring some backstory to Mister DJ whose superpower seems to be filling a club dance floor in 3 seconds. And talking about comic books the reporters wonder which comic is the most important to read: Green Arrow, Grayson, Saga, Dark Knight, or The Last Laugh. And as long as they are going into comic book history there is mention of how Robin Hood has visually impacted Arrow to date, and why A.T.O.M. is appearing in Arrow versus the character that the creative team really wanted.
Reporter Wing starts his “Hot Girl Report” as everyone wonders where Laurel is. And the reporters also give their opinions on whether they are looking forward to seeing Laurel as the Black Canary or not. SP give his theory on who kills Sara which captivates reporters Wing and Jay.
MEANWHILE BACK IN THE FLASHBACKS….the reporters geek out about Katana and wonder if Ollie and Katana will ever end up together. And Sp points out that Oliver is a little old to be learning how to do laundry.
It isn’t a Starling Tribune without a DC Checklist including a look into the FOX show Gotham. The reporters comment on the family feel of Team Arrow and that they are all looking forward to the big Flash-Arrow crossover.
