"Supernatural" fans, here's some major news about the upcoming spinoff pilot "Supernatural: Tribes" -- it's getting a name change!
The potential new series is now called "Supernatural: Bloodlines," a title much more fitting for the project about five mafia-like monster families who run the evil underworld of Chicago.

We’re moving ever closer to seeing the scarlet speedster on the small screen, with The CW’s Arrow spinoff The Flash currently filming in Vancouver. The supporting players have been cast, and we recently got our first look at the Flash himself, Grant Gustin, in costume (or, at least, his head in costume). Now, we’re just waiting to see if the Arrow spinoff will find success with executives over at The CW and race its way onto the small screen next fall.
Today we’ve learnt from THR that Patrick Sabongui has joined the cast in the role of Central City Police Captain David Singh. He’s expected to have a recurring part if the show gets picked up to series, which means he’ll probably be doing a lot of yelling at Barry Allen week to week.
Interestingly enough, Sabongui has already had tiny parts in two season 1 episodes of Arrow, »

Following a lengthy casting process, Melissa Roxburgh has landed the female lead of Violet in the planted Supernatural spinoff, now titled Supernatural: Bloodlines (formerly Tribes). Like her new co-stars Nathaniel Buzolic, Sean Faris and Stephen Martines, who all previously recurred on The Vampire Diaries, Roxburgh too has appeared on hit CW series before. She has done an arc on Arrow and a guest stint on the mothership Supernatural series. Written by Andrew Dabb and directed by Robert Singer, Supernatural: Bloodlines revolves around the various mafia-esque monster families that unknowingly to humans “run” the underbelly of Chicago and are being tracked by a newly minted Hunter who’s trying to stop them and rid Chicago of anything or anyone supernatural. Roxburgh’s Violet is a member of the powerful werewolf pack who hides her true nature because of her forbidden love for family rival David (Bozulic). But when cornered, »

With production beginning on the "Arrow" spinoff, "The Flash," it's time to jump the gun and start wondering about how the two shows will relate when both are on the air. Will characters travel between Starling City and Central City? Will main characters Oliver Queen and Barry Allen visit some more?
That said, it's not likely that the two shows would meet much to begin with. "Everything is always on the table," Guggenheim tells Collider. "But we also all collectively feel like 'The Flash' needs to stand on its own two feet, now that it's gotten its launch from 'Arrow.'"
If crossovers aren't likely right away, when might they come? "We trust our instincts to know when is the right time, »
Review Caroline Preece 7 Mar 2014 - 12:28
This week's Arrow had action, character growth and a good balance between past and present. Here's Caroline's review...
This review contains spoilers.
2.15 The Promise
Last season, The Odyssey gave us an hour almost entirely made up of flashbacks, with the usual favouring of present day action flipped and used to explore more of Oliver’s past. This episode, The Promise, did the same thing and, although I didn’t hate last year’s example, this was far superior in terms of character development, action and just being a really good hour of Arrow. This big cliffhanger set up us up nicely, of course, with Slade cosying up to Moira and shooting Ollie ominous looks across his living room, and the escalating tension sewn throughout these snippets made them almost as fantastic to watch as seeing exactly what happened to their friendship back in the day. »
Courtesy of executive producer Marc Guggenheim, we have some interesting tidbits on the return of The Huntress aka Helena Bertinelli, who is played by the lovely Jessica De Gouw on The CW's Arrow. Here's what Guggenheim told Collider: "It’s been literally a year, in story time, since we’ve seen her. One of the things we told Jessica De Gouw, who plays The Huntress, was that we weren’t interested in treading over old territory with Helena. What we pitched her was the idea that basically Helena Bertinelli is gone. The only thing that remains is The Huntress. It’s been a year of her literally scouring the world to find her father, who was on the run at the end of Episode 17 of last season. We really wanted to show that wear and tear on her. We even aged up her costume a little bit, »
You have to give Arrow props for the way it is slowly spinning many of DC Comics’ characters into this grounded superhero drama. You wouldn’t think a lot of the Green Arrow’s villains would translate well into the gritty world of Arrow, but somehow they make it work. Even the sillier ideas, like the League of Assassins, are making their way into the stories of Oliver Queen and his vigilante life. A while ago, Arrow teased the idea of putting together the Suicide Squad. A.R.G.U.S. boss Amanda Waller (Cynthia Addai-Robinson) seemed determined to put Diggle back to work and it’s all coming true in the upcoming March 19 episode, appropriately titled “Suicide Squad.”
We’ve got photos from the upcoming episode, so you can see which Arrow characters are joining the Squad. For those of you who don’t know, the Suicide Squad is »

Next week's episode of Arrow sees the Suicide Squad being sent out on its first mission, and while we've already seen images of the team, two new promos for the episode have been released, which happens to tease the possible inclusion of a surprise member... could that be fan-favourite Batman villain Harley Quinn?
Amanda Waller Sends The Suicide Squad Out On Their First Mission — Following Slade’s (Manu Bennett) return and his promise to make good on his threat to destroy Oliver’s (Stephen Amell) loved ones, Oliver focuses all his energy on preparing for battle with his former friend. Sarah (Caity Lotz) tries to help but, fearing for her safety, Oliver pushes her away. Meanwhile, Diggle (David Ramsey) is recruited by Amanda Waller (guest star Cynthia Addai-Robinson) and A.R.G.U.S. to stop a warlord (guest star Lee Majdoub) he knew from his time in Afghanistan. Always the solider, »

Arrow Season 2, Episode 15 “The Promise”
Directed by Glen Winter
Airs Wednesday nights at 8pm Et on The CW
Every time a character on Arrow mentions “the island”, I can’t help but shudder a bit. From the pilot episode, Arrow’s struggled mightily to make the many, many flashbacks to Oliver’s post-crash adventures engaging in any sort of way. Season two’s taken a small step forward, thanks to the introduction of Sarah and a genuine attempt to deepen the connection between Oliver and Slade in early episodes, but the material that takes place on the island and the freighter is constantly fighting to justify its presence, hanging onto superficial “reveals” to keep the audience interested, something “The Promise” tries to do in just about every single scene. When its not, it is trying to give dramatic weight to the show’s silliest »
