Cupid, an obsessed fan of the Arrow, will debut in the sixth episode of the season while Boomerang, an irate ex-A.R.G.U.S. employee, will be introduced in the seventh episode of the season and then carry over into the eighth episode, in which he'll likely face The Flash, who crosses over into Starling City.”From Oualid Mouaness (MFA  97)  “For those of you have have been waiting: I am proud to share Annie Lennox performing "I Put A Spell On You" - directed by Natalie Johns... and that I had the pleasure of Producing - Stay tuned for quite a bit more from Annie Lennox - the wonderful album NOSTALGIA drops on October 27th - www.tricyclelogic.comwww.annielennox.com https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3TrSMaOZm3YFrom Morgan Hanner (BFA 03)  “I'm in Los Angeles, and have been working as an Editor for a number of years.
