Starling Tribune - Season 4 Edition – Episode 9: Dark Waters
A day after the Arrow season 4 mid-season finale the Starling Tribune reporters gather to marvel at the episode and the 1st half of the season. Reporter Neil unfortunately could not make it so fan of the podcast Jenny joins us to fill Neil’s seat. With less than a week before Star Wars Episode VII it is on everyone’s brain so the new podcast “squirrel” moment is “StarWars!” included with an Arrow reference to Star Wars as well. In the meat of the episode none of the reporters believe Felicity is dead but Jenny does have “Death fatigue” and SP comes out with his special theory. The possibility of Time Travel is discussed and everyone revised their grave-site death predictions. It’s a packed Arrow episode too with an Oliver-Felicity engagement and many secrets are revealed such as Damian’s family (we fear for Damian’s daughter), Quentin and Momma Smoak’s relationship. None of the reporters have a good handle on the Andy-John Diggle story line. The reporters love the dual father-daughter arcs in the episode. The reporters discuss how Oliver is handling both Team Arrow and Star City Mayoral Candidate. The reporters compare and contrast the villain evolution of Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Grant Ward and Arrow’s Damian Darhk. “Genesis” continues to be a mystery. Lain-Yu Sharnadko 4 was quite the bust. The reporters comment on Malcom Merlyn as The Green Arrow. Chris answers the question of “Did Laurel redeem herself yet?” and all of the reporters give their take on a future Laurel-Oliver relationship. It’s not Arrow without some great fight scenes like we saw in the warehouse. SP continues his campaign for #AnnaHopkinsForCaptainMarvel and also his love for … shipwrecks? The reporters wrap up the episode with a list of Easter Eggs, Arrow News, a Stephen Amell versus Ben Affleck, Feedback and comments from the chat. Thank you for downloading and listening! All of us at Starling Tribune appreciate you! Happy Holidays and see you in 2016!

NK: Hint - it’s not the last issue in the run, so he may just survive… and get a new girlfriend. It’s a great issue following some hard-core combat in issue #46.
