  1. Arrow: Felicity Sports a Drastic New Look in Season 7 Photos (Date: 11 Sept 2018)
    1. The photos show her visiting Oliver in prison. In them, she sports a new look: pink hair, a lip ring, a nose ring and no glasses. On top of that, it seems Felicity will be facing a few trials of her own. Most of the images see her with a visible injury on her head. With the world knowing that her husband is the Green Arrow, it’s possible she could be the target of more than a few supervillains.
  2. Arrow Season 7 Promo Teases Prison Shower Fight Scene (Date: 13 Sept 2018)
    1. Judging by the latest promo for the seventh season of Arrow, Oliver Queen isn’t even going to be able to shower in peace. In a short, looped clip from the upcoming season of The CW’s inaugural DCTV series, Ollie is attacked by several assailants in shower to the maximum security prison where he’s being held, dispatching his opponents with hard-hitting intensity.




  1. 'Walking Dead' Baddie Xander Berkeley Brings Daddy Issues to 'Supergirl' Season 4 (Date: 13 Sept 2018)
    1. We already know that the anti-alien sentiment heading to Supergirl this season will be led by Sam Witwer's Ben Lockwood, aka Agent Liberty. But who formed the mind of this humans-first hate-monger? Looks like the apple may not have fallen too far from bigo-tree (get it?). TV Insider has learned exclusively that Xander Berkeley, who currently stars as Hilltop jerk Gregory on The Walking Dead, has been tapped to play Ben's father, Peter Lockwood. Peter is said to be "a middle-class factory owner struggling to make ends meet in a world that’s rapidly changing due to the rise of aliens from outer space living amongst us," per the casting news. The release goes on to explain that he's "proud and single-minded, a family man who’s dedicated his life providing for people. The seeds of his discontent sows the beginning of an anti-alien wave."
