    The Starling Tribune Reporters SP, Chris and Michelle review the finale Arrow episode “Fadeout.” In this episode the reporters discuss all the goodness of the Arrow finale episode that was 8 years in the making, the final spectacular 3 minute non-stop fight scene, the changes Oliver made for those he loved and the entirety of Star City, the conclusions of character stories as well as what's next for several characters in the Arrowverse, and how Emily Bett Rickard's return to the show turned out. The reporters also reflect on the series as a whole and it's place in the Arrowverse and the history of comicbook TV. The reporters also give their favorite memories of the Starling Tribune podcast, hear some great feedback from GonnaGeek Network owner Stephen and give a nod to all of the former Starling Tribune hosts.

    The Starling Tribune Reporters SP, Chris and Michelle review the penultimate Arrow season 8 episode 9 “Green Arrow & The Canaries.” In this episode the reporters discuss if Oliver Queen's Crisis sacrifice was honored appropriately in the timeline, ponder why Oliver chose to keep the Earth 2 Laurel, what Earth Prime timeframe is Laurel from in the episode, the awesomeness of two canaries cries back again, wonder when the Crisis effects are fully settled and who's memories will get restored and who stays oblivious, ask if 2040 Star City is still part of the Arrowverse of 2020, note that cool women don't look at explosives, admire the good stunt action in the episode, smile at the return of the Queen Mansion, their theories of who the main villain is in the episode, search their memories on any other follow on series with a 20 year time jump, their wishes for what a green lit Green Arrow and the Canaries series would look like, and how the reporters are taking the other CW Arrowverse shows post-Crisis.

Does she remember being Harbinger?  WHERE IS WALLY?????????????????  Where is Cisco and the others? Article cited at bottom states, “Maybe one day we will tell that story,” Guggenheim hedges, “but again, all of those actors need to be paid, and they need to be paid a crossover rate that is above and beyond their episodic rate. That forces us to make hard financial choices that unfortunately occasionally drive the creative choices.” • Roses o SP -  Never been done before over this many shows and this many episodes  o Chris  Combining earths opens some cool opportunities.  Justice League formation is awesome.  BEEBO! Everyone loves Beebo  Sara gets heavily featured and proven that as Captain she's already a leader of people. Makes sense she would lead the group. Also continuous with a trend in DC where normal humans play a fundamental role in a team  Routh as Supes one more time. I literally cheered when i saw him in suit on screen again. o Michelle  OMG they combined all the current CW DC shows (Stargirl on her own Earth)  Sara in charge; given great moments: leading fight w/Beebo, heart-to-heart w/Barry; coordinating fight w/Anti-Monitor and shadow demons; speech to Anti-Monitor - For Oliver!  Surprise Flash cameo  Black Lightning part of Justice League. Also - Justice League! Hall of Heroes!  Kara happy Kate on same Earth during fight w/Beebo  Baby Sara!  Justice for Brandon Routh - amazing shot as Superman • Point of discussion - will you watch the other shows? • For reference: Crisis on Infinite Earths: Easter Eggs and References in Part Three (14 Jan 2020) https://comicbook.com/dc/2020/01/14/crisis-on-infinite-earths-spoilers-part-4-5-easter-eggs/#21 • 'Crisis on Infinite Earths' Burning Qs Answered!

Takes over Harbinger Mobius Takes Novu's power; destroys Earth-1 Lex Luthor Of course he's going to take a page from the book and make himself a hero  Pariah Controlled by Anti-Monitor; bears witness Cisco vibes his memories Brings Black Lightning, who doesn't know about multiple Earths and whose Earth is gone Teleports Flash, Sara, Batwoman, Supergirl, Superman, J'onn J'onzz, and Ryan to the Vanishing Point - outside of time and space; Lex comes out of Superman to rewrite destiny Black Lightning Contains energy from canon Not from Earth-1 Rage against the dying of the light  Thorns: SP All three episodes sort of feel like a waste now because everything is gone Loved the cameos, but some are obscure for Arrowverse fans Choi Lucifer Spectre Stargate Pioneer Jon Cryer - what a great Lex - plus the Christopher Reeve connection in Superman IV. Yes, I know we've discussed it before but I felt it needed to be mentioned again. The way the Flash cast just miraculously portals in Punctuates the separate episodes and not true continuous miniseries event Black Lightning just a bit more than a cameo It would have been nice to see Oracle on Earth 203 World's Finest confrontation ...a bit old with Batman v Superman Why does Vibe live again when Cisco went through the whole arc of becoming non meta again? - I know,because plot and he was the only one to get through the treadmill force field. But….really? Chris Why isn't Dig the Green Lantern yet? Spectre reveal kinda came out of nowhere Michelle  Still upset that we didn't see Nash become Pariah or Lyla become Harbinger and why she ended up w/Anti-Monitor and as the Anti-Monitor If Anti-Monitor could destroy all Earths at once, why not do so? (I know, because plot, but still) Oliver didn't need to become the Spectre; Corrigan would've been great to see Roses SP -  All the cameos. John Wesley Shipp's 90's flash gets an ending Diggle's issue about not being with Oliver - true to the characters Routh's Superman … again. Chris John Wesley Shipp is OG flash again! and we get an actual 90s flash flashback Brandon Routh is still great. Can we give him a Superman show? Diggle and Oliver's friendship is shown to be a big deal when he's the one that pulls him out. Lex tricks everyone (keep in mind he sees himself as a hero normally). BUt bummed it's Routh Supes that is gone :( Kara and Kate conversation ends when Kara tells her to keep the kryptonite   Michelle  Lucifer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love Tom Ellis and the show. Maze is Mazikeen, loyal servant/friend of Lucifer's; Constantine helped bring her out of Hell to Earth; there are rules preventing Lucifer from just bringing whoever he wants out of Hell; even Lucifer has to go back to Hell; visit is pre-TV show Treadmill from comics; a Flash has to die; flashback to Flash TV show (knew this was going to happen, still teared up anyway) Logical reason to bring in Black Lightning Diggle brings back Oliver Still loving Snart as the voice of the Waverider For reference: Crisis on Infinite Earths: Easter Eggs and References in Part Three (10 Dec 2019) https://comicbook.com/dc/2019/12/11/crisis-on-infinite-earths-part-3-easter-eggs/     ARROW NEWS:   CW Reveals When Arrow, Flash, Batwoman and More Return From Winter Hiatus (Date: 18 Dec 2019) Both Arrow and DC's Legends of Tomorrow will air on Jan. 14 to close out the Arrowverse's "Crisis on Infinite Earths".

Part 2 of crossover Crisis across the multiverse  Fight scenes and stunts Super fight Can tell when computer animation is used Lois knocks Lex out; Lois and Iris use book; Lois speech to bring 96 back Mia and Sara kick Hex's butt; Sara gives Hex his scar Time Travel / Crisis / Cameos Earth-74: Snart as Waverider's AI Earth-99: Conroy as Batman; exo suit to walk; older Kate and Kara Kate died 5 years ago; Beth lived Batman - start w/a code, then take a life, then taking others becomes easy; trophies from kills, including Superman Batman - gave authorities too much power; has Kryptonite in suit Kate kicks Bruce; “There is no hope” Earth-75: Metropolis Superman killed - Superman dies comic scene Earth-167 Tom Welling! So buff; tosses Krytonite Kent farm; gave up powers; has daughters w/Lois Punches Lex - his Earth, president Not everyone looks the same going from Earth to Earth Earth-96: Metropolis Routh Superman; Joker gassed the Daily Planet, killing everyone Superman knew Luthor tired of killing Superman; has 38 and 96 fight Earth-18: North Dakota Lazarus Pit Jonah Hex tries to stop them; Sara gives him his scar Sara - Mia won't take no for an answer like her father; smart like her mother Oliver comes back; Sara tranqed body Oliver Queen / Green Arrow - Earth 1 Sara, Kate, and Kara pour one for him Constantine finds parallel universes; finds Lazarus Pit Constantine can't bring Oliver's soul back b/c antimatter messing w/his magical powers Team Arrow Supergirl - Earth 38 We should be able to undo this Doesn't trust Monitor Team Supergirl Superman - 38 (Hoechlin) Superman - 96 (Routh) Kingdom Come and from Superman Returns Instant chemistry w/Lois Batwoman - Earth 1 Who wants to meet Batman? New and unfriendly Just started - yet was active last year Took Kryptonite from Bruce Barry Allen / Flash - Earth 1 We're going to use a Lazarus Pit to bring Oliver back Team Flash Sara Lance / White Canary Promised crew to no more crossovers Mia - Nyssa told me everything about you and Lazarus Pits Ray / Atom  Paragon detector Team Legends Earth-74: Snart is this Waverider's AI - any preference to how you want to die, Harbinger Rory's ship; trying to be a writer; Harbinger, we need you - Rory “You had me at beer” Rory - Good with the baby; reads his self-published novel Monitor Need Ray's lab Need the 7 paragons - beings of the purest will Kara - hope Kate - courage (bat of the future) Sara - destiny Superman 96 - truth Got Book of Destiny by going back in time; knew Luthor was going to steal the book Book of the Guardians - given to Felicity Harbinger Keeping Diggle in the dark Book making heard headaches Goes to the Anti-Monitor Lex Luthor Has a part to play; destiny unfulfilled Steals book; mission - kill all Superman  Pariah Thorns: SP Oliver's death is devastating, but whole planets have been destroyed Felicity (Chris good point) Is Lyla Lyla or Harbinger. Diggle at home with JJ? Yea I liked Leonard on the Earth-74 Waverider, but why not use the ACTUAL Waverider? The book of destiny - who can use it and who cannot? - Not exactly the same book as last crossover Epic Superman v Superman fight destruction - they definitely need a glass repair service on Earth-96 If the Monitor knew who the paragons were - why waste time sending them on their journey to Earth-99?   Chris Where Diggle? He should be here and be a potential voice of reason for not using a Lazarus Pit Its a sendoff for Smallville but no Welling in suit Blue K theory? (doesn't really matter now) I'm conflicted here it's a good sendoff to Clark. Part of his narrative in the show was that he wanted to me normal at times.  I think I built it up too much in my mind. But tbh I'm a bit salty we still never got Welling in the suit CG on the Super fight was a bit rough but TV budget so okay What's up with Lyla? Is this going to be explained in the comic tie-in? Sidequest the episode.  Big stakes from part 1 aren't really in play here Michelle  Tom Welling not in Superman suit Lazarus Pit, really? The multiverse is ending; Barry spends a lot of time on side mission Harbinger's going to Anti-Monitor really not explained Roses SP -  “Yea. I kind of promised my crew we'd never have to do another crossover” Jonathan crying and being passed off from person to person until Mick stops him World's Finest Teamup to Earth-99. “Bat Of The Future” Lois has a thing for ALLSupermen Lex Luther's “Superfriends” comment to Earth-167 Superman It was fitting to have Batman in the Batwoman episode Superman v Superman fight was made better by two actors: Brandon Routh and Tyler Hoechlin For all the Legends Of Tomorrow side characters to be in Crisis, it was good to see Jonah Hex End credit symbols are pretty cool   Chris Leo replaces Gideon Routh is still a perfect Superman. This is the series they should be pursuing.  He is from Superman Returns via reference to his son Jason Kara eyes up Routh Supes gets told he's her cousin by Superman prime was fun Ray and Supes trading quips on teh Waverider was fun Having not watched Cryer in Supergirl I don't know what he was like previously but he nails it as Lex Kevin Conroy is batman even if its evil batman. they took my batman and put him in live action. Normally I complain about guggenheim and his need to defy expectations of fans. I actually liked it here. To many people Kevin Conroy is the definitive version of batman. One who never kills. To take this version and have him be a broken version similar to Dark Knight Returns Batman was not what I expected. And seeing Conroy pull off broken Batman both physically and mentally was quite the show. Teased me with Batman Beyond when referencing a Gotham from the future Smallville Didn't expect to get it. Like the nod to Lex as president Wish there had been more Alternate earth Mick is still delightful as is his babysitting Michelle  Tom Welling!!!! Everyone noticing how buff he is Like the Kara/Constantine/Mia teamup Kate and Kara develop relationship Cryer gets to be more Lex Luthor-y than on Supergirl Kate has character development w/interaction w/Bruce Brandon Routh gets to show the world why he's a great Superman and deserves to take over from Cavill Episode made me like Superman again For reference: Crisis on Infinite Earths: Easter Eggs and References in Part Two (10 Dec 2019) https://comicbook.com/dc/2019/12/10/crisis-infinite-earths-part-2-easter-eggs/      ARROW NEWS:   CW Reveals When Arrow, Flash, Batwoman and More Return From Winter Hiatus (Date: 18 Dec 2019) Both Arrow and DC's Legends of Tomorrow will air on Jan. 14 to close out the Arrowverse's "Crisis on Infinite Earths".

Y'alls coverage of the show plus the One-shots and other stuff yuns do is fantastic. Just listened to Purgatory and thought that I would mention that on VUDU you can buy the bundles of Invansion and Crisis On Earth-X. They haven't got Elseworlds bundled yet but hopefully they do, and obviously I hope eventually they get Crisis On Infinite Earths bundled too. Thanks, I appreciate y'all, it's been fun listening to y'alls coverage, and looking forward to these last little bit of episodes. Thanks! REDDIT (via Chris): https://www.reddit.com/r/arrow/comments/e9vu1r/crisis_spoilers_star_city/ Posted byu/rleach1001 7 days ago [Crisis Spoilers] Star City spoiler Star City 2046 can't be the same Earth featured in Legends of Tomorrow. I know Sara said the Waverider jumped dimensions, but she has to be wrong. In Legends of Tomorrow S1E6, Sara meets future Oliver and he says: "30 years ago, you and Ray hopped on a spaceship, and you never came back." In Crisis Part One, they meet alternate Oliver, and he says: "You're dead. You... you went down with the Gambit." So, Earth-16 is an alternate Earth that's very similar to Star City 2046, but Sara actually died on the Gambit. She never got on the Amazo, joined the League, or came back to Star City. Star City 2046 was a potential future for Earth-1 that was avoided.   NEXT EPISODE   Link to Promo: https://comicbook.com/dc/2019/12/09/crisis-on-infinite-earths-spoilers-part-3-trailer-watch-online-the-flash/ (Date: 9 Dec 2019)    Episode: “Crisis on Infinite Earths: Part 3” [Flash: Season 6 Episode 9] Air Date: Tuesday, December 10, 2019 Summary: Pariah enlists Black Lightning to help stop the Anti-Monitor after Flash-90 Shares what he learned from his battle in 'Elseworlds'.

Michelle was out sick for the week. The reporters discuss the final Arrow included crossover episode part one including why you should enjoy these episodes while you have access to them, that this is simply the MOST AMBITIOUS crossover in the history of television spanning SIX currently airing television shows, why its time to geek out over all the cameos, the reporter's takes on the Earth-16 adventure (more to come in a later episode), the reporter's roses and thorns with this episode of the crossover, why Arrow fans might feel cheated at the big Arrow moment and Marc Guggenheim's reasons for it,if the crossover can be produced like a 5 episode miniseries or a 5 episode premium streaming series, why James Bamford would have been a great addition to the Supergirl episode production staff, and what was that deal between the Monitor and Oliver Queen about anyway?   Episode:            “Crisis on Infinite Earths: Part One” [Supergirl: Season 5 Episode 9] Air Date:           Sunday, December 8, 2019   Director:           Jesse Warn https://www.imdb.com/name/nm1168394/?ref_=tt_ov_dr                          13x Supergirl / 6x Arrow / 4x The Flash / 8x Spartacus   Writers: Robert L.

    The Starling Tribune Reporters SP and Chris review the Arrow finale season seventh episode “Purgatory” with the help of Michelle's notes. The reporters discuss the final Arrow pre-Crisis episode including the return of Yoa Fei, Billy Wintergreen and Edward Fryers; the effective CGI use in the episode; why SP's knives are better than Stephen Amell's knives, speculate on who is going to teach Mia how to slap water, Lyla's transformation into Harbinger, how a path for Diggle to become the Green Lantern was missed, speculation on how Roy's arm will be replaced, if we thought we wasted our time with the Flash Forwards, and Oliver's great final moments with Mia and Williams. The duo also prepare themselves for Crisis by discussing the seven year build up to Crisis, the confusing nature of the pre-crisis cut scene, Chris expands a popular Monitor fan theory, discussing some of Marc Guggenheim last minute pre-crisis news, and what would be change for the better for fans post crisis.   Episode:            “Purgatory” [Season 8 Episode 7] Air Date:           Tuesday, December 3, 2019    Director:           James Bamford https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0051466/?ref_=tt_ov_dr                          18x Arrow / 1x Supergirl   Writers: Rebecca Bellotto https://www.imdb.com/name/nm3428799/?ref_=ttfc_fc_wr4                          10x Arrow   Rebecca Rosenberg https://www.imdb.com/name/nm9455161/?ref_=ttfc_fc_wr5                          2x Arrow Promo: https://www.comicbookmovie.com/tv/dc/arrow/arrow-oliver-queen-is-going-to-save-the-multiverse-in-the-new-promo-for-season-8-episode-7-purgatory-a171886   Arrow   Episode # / Episode Title / Episode Air / Date  / Rating 01 Starling City 15-Oct-19 0.84 02 Welcome To Hong Kong 22-Oct-19 0.77 03 Leap Of Faith 29-Oct-19 0.76 04 Present Tense 5-Nov-19 0.62 05 Prochnost 19-Nov-19 0.74 06 Reset 26-Nov-19 0.79 07 Purgatory 3-Dec-19 0.83   Legends Of Tomorrow   Episode # / Episode Title / Episode Air / Date  / Rating   Supergirl   Episode # / Episode Title / Episode Air / Date  / Rating 01 Event Horizon 6-Oct-19 1.26 02 Stranger Beside Me 13-Oct-19 0.97 03 Blurred Lines 20-Oct-19 0.92 04 In Plain Sight 27-Oct-19 0.95 05 Dangerous Liaisons 3-Nov-19 0.78 06 Confidence Women 10-Nov-19 0.8 07 Tremors 17-Nov-19 0.79 08 The Wrath Of Rama Khan 1-Dec-19 0.87   The Flash   Episode # / Episode Title / Episode Air / Date  / Rating 01 Into the Void 8-Oct-19 1.62 02 A Flash of the Lighting 16-Oct-19 1.27 03 Dead Man Running 22-Oct-19 1.38 04 There Will Be Blood 29-Oct-19 1.48 05 Kiss Kiss Breach Breach 5-Nov-19 1.19 06 License To Elongate 19-Nov-19 1.29 07 The Last Temptation of Barry Allen, Pt. 1 26-Nov-19 1.17 03 The Last Temptation of Barry Allen, Pt. 2 3-Dec-19 1.32   Black Lightning   Episode # / Episode Title / Episode Air / Date  / Rating 01 The Book Of Occupation: Chapter Two: Birth of the Blackbird 7-Oct-19 1.16 02 The Book Of Occupation: Chapter Two: Maryam's Tasbih 14-Oct-19 0.63 03 The Book of Occupation: Chapter Three: Agent Odell's Pipe-Dream 21-Oct-19 0.61 04 The Book of Occupation: Chapter Four: Lynn's Ouroboros 28-Oct-19 0.52 05 The Book of Occupation: Chapter Five: Requiem for Tavon 11-Nov-19 0.71 06 The Book of Resistance: Chapter One: Knocking on Heaven's Doo 18-Nov-19 0.62 07 The Book of Resistance: Chapter Two: Henderson's Opus 25-Nov-19 0.65 08 The Book of Resistance: Chapter Three: The Battle of Franklin Terrace 2-Dec-19 0.60   Batwoman   Episode # / Episode Title / Episode Air / Date  / Rating 01 Pilot 6-Oct-19 1.86 02 The Rabbit Hole 13-Oct-19 1.45 03 Down Down Down 20-Oct-19 1.22 04 Who Are You? 27-Oct-19 1.29 05 Mine Is A Long And A Sad Tale 3-Nov-19 1.16 06 I'll Be Judge, I'll Be Jury 10-Nov-19 1.09 07 Tell Me The Truth 17-Nov-19 1.01 08 A Mad Tea-Party 1-Dec-19 1.01   Part 1: The Plot, Themes and Characters What was the overall theme?
