Reporter Stargate Pioneer is out on vacation so Reporters Chris and Neil discuss the Starling Tribune episode Beacon Of Hope. “Bee-con of Hope” was “Bee-ted” into the viewer’s head during the episode. Beacon also means that Team Arrow needs to bring the light. The reporters try to answer the question is Oliver’s head back in the game? After last week, the show rebounded a bit but it still needs more work. The show opened with an awesome training fight scene, but the boys still had their shirts on. #Fail? Just how many shirtless scenes are in Stephen Amell’s contract anyway? Of course Team Arrow needs more training and our reporters think more water slapping might help. Why do the bee drones turn into a giant robot? Our reporters answer: because plot/cgi requires of course. The flashbacks are moving again and they are starting to reconcile season 1 Oliver with Flashback Oliver. Curtis shows us his moves and the reporters aren’t completely turned off by them. Should Curtis be called “Overwatch 2 point 0?” Firewall? The chat answers with probably Mr. Terrific.  The Reporters give another Chris sponsored Oliver Queen Beard Report. The reporters discuss Oliver’s tactician abilities. Laurel supriseingly continues to develop in the positive direction, but still does not have any chemistry with Oliver. What role does Diggle play on the show now? Is it just to slows the plot down? Felicity has transitioned in one episode to just being a non Super-hero Team member this week and blew up some T-Spheres. How long can Moma Smoak not know about Team Arrow? . Reporter Chris gets proof that HIVE is not the biggest Damian Darhk fan and Malcolm lets him know it. Political Intern is now with Ruve. Is he a DOUBLE DOUBLE plant or just a one trick pony? The reporters discuss if anything changed with who’s in the grave and they rate the villain of the week. The reporters wrap up the episode with a list of the newly renamed “DC and Pop Culture” Easter Eggs, Arrow News, Feedback and comments from the chat. Thank you for downloading and listening!
