Starling Tribune - Season 4 Edition – Episode 13: Sins Of The Father (A CW Network Arrow Television Show Fan Podcast)


The Official Arrow Podcast of the Gonna Geek Network


In a decidedly bittersweet week for Arrow, The Starling Tribune reporters Chris, Neil and Stargate Pioneer drop down their thoughts on what occurred on the screen within the episode “Sins Of The Father” and off the create with the battling DC and Arrow creative teams. The reporters run down the Father-Son/Daughter sets on the show and attempt to pick the “best” father of the bunch. The trio also attempt to identify the episode theme which has Neil confused and both SP and Chris going in opposite directions. Malcolm shows his true colors – again – and Oliver has to decide on how to deal with it (#severancepackage). The fight scenes were some of the most intense and complex since The Siege at the end of season 2 in Starling City. Nyssa and Laurel’s relationship continues to transform and possible strengthen as comrades. The Reporters also analyze The Calculator’s dual reveals to Felicity and Overwatch and how Felicity responds in kind. This week was a big shakeup for the reporter’s “Who’s In The Grave” predictions and Chris throws out a second hashtag for the episode #WallerStillLives. 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!

Stephen Jondrew

Stephen Jondrew The Slade Wilson story lines are some of the best stories in all of the Arrowverse. I think that it's important for people to remember the history of the universe (CW) and this feels like a kick in the face to that. I have always enjoyed Batman and Superman movies to some degree, I really enjoyed Man of Steel. However, actions like this (if true) kind of make me wish that the upcoming films flop and we see them disappear for a decade. Ya, i said it.
