3) “Arrow” TV Show Talk

We start out discussing the Comiic Book origins of the “Arrow” and then discuss our general thoughts about the show, “Arrow”. While we planned to discuss each episode of the show, (below are Arrow episode synopsis from Wikipedia) we quickly changed it up and our love of the show Arrow comes out…

*Show Synopsis from Wikipedia

Episode 1: “Pilot”
After a shipwreck that claims the life of his father, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen is missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the Pacific. When he returns home to Starling City, his mother Moira, his younger sister Thea, and best friend Tommy welcome him home but sense Oliver has been changed by his ordeal on the island. While Oliver hides the truth about the man he has become, he tries to reconcile with his former girlfriend, Laurel, for cheating on her with her sister, who also died in the shipwreck. As Oliver reconnects with those closest to him, he secretly masquerades as a hooded vigilante archer by night, attempting to right the wrongs of his family, fight the ills of society, and restore Starling City to its former glory as his late father had entrusted him to do before his death. Oliver’s first personal task is to take down corrupt millionaire Adam Hunt, who has scammed millions from various people in Starling City. Laurel’s father, police detective Quentin Lance, is determined to arrest the vigilante. Meanwhile, Oliver’s mother is revealed to have an agenda against her son, having orchestrated a kidnapping to determine what his father told him after the shipwreck.

Episode 2: “Honor Thy Father”
Laurel brings a civil suit against millionaire Martin Somers, who is also one of Oliver’s targets, for the taking part in drug trades with the Chinese Triads that ultimately led to the death of a young woman’s father. As the hooded vigilante, Oliver threatens Somers to make him confess to the murder as penance for all of the wrongs he has done to the city. Instead, Somers contacts the Triad, who sends their assassin, China White, to kill Laurel. Oliver saves Laurel from China; he also captures and gives an audio recording of Somers’ confession to Detective Lance. Meanwhile, Oliver’s mother and Walter push Oliver to take a position at the company. Oliver intentionally embarrasses the family at the opening of the company’s new applied sciences division to get out of it, knowing that he cannot honor his father’s request to fight for the city and be the man his mother wants him to be at the same time. A flashback to Oliver’s time on the island shows him being attacked by an unknown hooded figure wielding a bow and arrow.

Episode 3: “Lone Gunmen”
Oliver tracks down another millionaire from his list, but before he can get the answers he wants the man is killed by an assassin known as Deadshot. Initially, the police suspect that the vigilante, whom they refer to as “The Hood”, is responsible for the murder, but the evidence begins to prove that he did not kill anyone. Oliver decides to build a new dance club above his hideout to explain where he goes at night. While comparing the competition, Oliver finds Thea, who reveals that Laurel and Tommy had been sleeping together during Oliver’s abscence. Laurel becomes suspicious when Oliver does not react to the news. Meanwhile, Oliver uses the assassin’s M.O. to learn his true identity, and enlists the help of Detective Lance to stop Deadshot from assassinating more of the wealthy. Oliver manages to stop Deadshot, apparently killing him in the process, but his bodyguard Diggle is shot during the assassination attempt. Oliver is forced to reveal his true identity to Diggle in order to save Diggle’s life. In another flashback, it is revealed that the archer who attacked Oliver was actually trying to help him. Oliver misunderstands and escapes, but is pursued by an unknown group of armed professionals.

Episode 4: “An Innocent Man”
Diggle awakens in Oliver’s hideout, where Oliver offers Diggle a chance to fight at his side and help the city. Diggle turns him down, calling him a murderer. Later, while watching the news, Oliver discovers a connection between Declan, a deathrow inmate, and Jason Brodeur, one of the men on his list. In his vigilante persona, he enlists the help of Laurel to prove the man innocent before he is executed. Working together, the pair uncover the truth, but Jason Brodeur has his bodyguard stage a prison break so that he can have Laurel and the inmate killed before the truth is revealed. Oliver sneaks into the prison dressed as a guard, with a ski mask to hide his face, and saves Laurel and Declan. The bodyguard ultimately confesses to Declan’s innocence. Diggle meets with Oliver and agrees to work with him so that he can both protect the city and protect Oliver from losing his humanity. Detective Lance arrests Oliver on suspicion of being the vigilante after seeing footage of him changing into his disguise before the last Deadshot confrontation. Meanwhile, Walter discovers that Moira has been keeping the salvaged and sabotaged family yacht hidden in a warehouse.

Episode: 5: “Damaged”
Detective Lance charges Oliver with murder, so Oliver hires Laurel to be his attorney. Given Oliver’s time on the island, the district attorney offers Oliver an insanity plea with an indeterminate amount of time spent in a psychiatric facility under a diagnosis of post-traumatic stress disorder. Oliver declines, and offers to take a polygraph test for Detective Lance to prove his innocence. Although his test indicates he is telling the truth about not being the vigilante, the experience causes Oliver to have flashbacks to his time on the island. Oliver specifically remembers when he is caught by the armed professionals and tortured by Deathstroke before being saved by the hooded archer, which he shares with Laurel. While under house arrest, Oliver maintains his bachelor playboy facade by throwing a prison themed party and reveals to Diggle his plan was to get caught so that he could convince everyone that he was not the vigilante from the start. To accomplish this, Oliver has Diggle dress as the vigilante and go after a German arms dealer who is in the city to sell automatic weapons to the city gangs. Oliver’s plan works and the charges are dropped against him. Meanwhile, Moira meets with the an unknown associate, who is tied to the list that Oliver has, regarding the vigilante attacking members of their secret organization. Walter leaves the house after confronting Moira on her deception.

Episode 6: “Legacies”
Oliver begins preparing to take on another individual from his father’s list, but Diggle argues that he should expand his work and help the police take down a group of bank robbers. Oliver initially refuses, believing that it detracts from his mission to right his father’s wrongs; Diggle is able to persuade Oliver in the end. Oliver uses police files and IT specialist Felicity Smoak to deduce that the robbers are actually a family unit, and that the leader Derek Reston worked for Queen Industries before Robert Queen outsourced 1500 jobs to China and the Reston family lost their home as a result. Feeling guilty, Oliver tries to persuade Derek to right his own wrongs, but when he learns that the family are going to rob another bank he chooses to stop them. During Oliver’s confrontation, Derek is shot and not killed. Meanwhile, Tommy throws Laurel a fundraiser to help her pro-bono law firm, CNRI, stay in business; Tommy hopes that this will show Laurel that he is serious about wanting a relationship with her. Flashbacks also reveal how Oliver first discovered the target names in his father’s notebook.

  • He-Man – In July, DC Comics is launching a brand new, six-issue He-Man and the Masters of the Universe comic, trying to attract a whole new audience to those once familiar characters while still retaining the fandom of those who already loved it. Written by James Robinson with art by Philip Tan, the comic will update the concepts behind the toys for a modern audience.   In the new comic, the evil Skeletor has already taken over the world, and Eternia’s heroes have forgotten their heroic nature. A character called the “Sorceress” awakens He-Man to his true purpose, and he embarks on a quest to restore the rest of the group.
  • Devil’s Due Publishing is planning both a return to publishing and payment of their existing debt to creators, according to a statement released by company founder Josh Blaylock.
  • Now dubbed “Devil’s Due Entertainment,” details of their publishing slate are still vague at this time, with Blaylock stating his intentions for a “small roster of high quality projects.” The Devil’s Due website lists upcoming projects including Yumiko: Curse of the Merch Girl (produced with hip-hop artist Murs), graphic novel Mercy Sparx and prose novel When the Devil’s Bills Came Due.
