‘Arrow’ season 3, episode 18 podcast: Going beyond ‘Public Enemy’ with Jessa

Arrow -We are a little later than usual with our latest “Arrow” podcast, so with that in mind, we wanted to bring something a little bit different to you here for our discussion of “Public Enemy”: While we (being Matt Carter and Jessa) are going to get into some of the general themes of the episode, we are also going to be spending a ton of time talking about the future of the season both for the rest of season 3, and also season 4.

We should say one thing in general here: The CW has really spoiled a ton of developments the rest of the way. We’re not discussing anything within this episode that has not already been hinted at by the network, but we would still advise you to sit this one out in the event that you have not seen any of the trailers or read any interviews / synopses online.

One of the biggest questions we have right now is where Oliver goes from here. At this point, it is obvious that our hero is probably going to be forced into becoming the new Ra’s al Ghul, but is that going to be a permanent position? Is it possible at all that he manages to take some members of Team Arrow away from Starling City? Could this be how Roy Harper manages to escape his current fate? We also discuss the latest on Oliver and Felicity and our fear that them hooking up could take away some of the fun, awkward moments that would come from them starting to date and know each other on a romantic level.

As for the news, we get into the latest spin-off casting news, some crossovers with “The Flash,” and our anger at DC Comics over the way that they are taking characters away from this universe.
