Arrow – Season 6 Episode 10

“Divided” Arrow returns from winter hiatus with a divided team, growing tensions and a group of villains working together towards a common goal. The previous episode ended on a really pessimistic note with Team Arrow split down the middle between the original members and the new members and a group of villains uniting in common cause….

Arrow – Season 6 Episode 9

“Irreconcilable Differences” Arrow heads into the winter hiatus with betrayal, mistrust, a wedding and a villain team up that promises complications when the show returns in January. Most of the above list is true except from the wedding, technically that happened during the crossover so this episode technically has the reception. Oliver and Felicity throw a…

Kneel Before Pod – Crisis on Earth-X

This year’s Arrowverse crossover has been and gone so Kneel Before Pod had to contribute to the discussion.

Arrow – Season 6 Episode 2

“Tribute” Arrow deals with identity as a concept following Oliver being potentially outed as the Green Arrow last week.
