Starling Tribune - Season 4 Edition – Episode 5: Haunted


The Official Arrow Podcast of the Gonna Geek Network


It seems everyone wanted to watch Matt Ryan back as John Constantine as Arrow received such a significant bump in the ratings this week despite leaking online. Neil, SP and Chris did too and they are back again to geek out over the episode. They talk about how the show might change now that magic has been introduced to the Star City Team Arrow and applaud Matt Ryan’s NBC dig with the dead peacock feather. Is Oliver Queen really Pure Of Heart? Neil suggests that he is really has Purity Of Purpose instead. But that tattoo has everyone wondering how and when it will work this year. Just how dense is Baron Reiter? Apparently very. And Neil strikes again with mention of the Outsiders War and the Island of Lian Yu becoming a character of its own again this season.  The three speculate on how Damian Darhk has infiltrated Team Arrow through his election headquarters. Is Andy Diggle’s background believable? Is Andy’s background any more believable than supporting Laurel anymore? Even the staunchest defender of the original content is starting to have a hard time supporter anymore. Thea is no longer supporting herself it seems and our heart goes out to the two ladies that are suffering from blood lusts anymore. Apparently the key to winning an Olympic bronze metal is talent, training, desire, and a case of energy drinks. Does the Arrow garage mean that we will get Arrow vehicles now? As always the hosts go over Arrow news and listener feedback.
