Starling Tribune - Season 4 Edition – Episode 14: Code Of Silence (A CW Network Arrow Television Show Fan Podcast)


The Official Arrow Podcast of the Gonna Geek Network


This week the Starling Tribune Reporters find themselves looking back a lot to season 1 Arrow, talk about the current episode Code Of Silence, and look into the future of the show. Just in case you forgot that Oliver keeps secrets but doesn’t like to, Arrow points it out again this week. Back on the island Conklin succumbs to Oliver Queen’s knife fighting skills (if only Conklin trained better Ryan Robbins would still be with the show). As the flashbacks progress will the show really be able to reconcile season one Ollie with Flashback Ollie? “Bam Bam” came through amazingly with the fight chorography this week and the reporters love it when he comes to direct and episode. The reporters are also surprised at how fast Malcolm Merlyn integrated with H.I.V.E.. The turn to help Feilicty walk about was really fast and really Terrific! The rpoertes wish for a Cisco’ed Spartan helmet soon. Neil’s ARGUS t-shirt seems safe from the dumpster bin…at least for now. Alex, the political intern, was sorely missed this week…unless he was cleaning up a Damian Darhk mess. The reporters are cringing for William Clayton and fear the worst for Samantha Clayton (#AnnaHopkinsForCaptainMarvel). This week was again a big shakeup for the reporter’s “Who’s In The Grave” and the trio rate and debate the villains of the week. The reporters wrap up the episode with a list of Easter Eggs, Arrow News, Feedback and comments from the chat. Thank you for downloading and listening!
