Felicity Smoak’s year is about to get worse, and she doesn’t even know it. The latest episode logistically, emotionally, and narratively made not one single lick of sense... until the very end. That’s not necessarily a bad thing.
One notoriously be-wigged political figure has been dominating political coverage lately, so let’s turn our attention to another. Oliver Queen is running for mayor. If you had to judge from this episode, “Dark Waters,” would you vote for him?
It’s hard to be a parent in comics. Your kids lie to you, your spouse is often a mole, a clone, or Doctor Octopus, and when you die you never, ever come back. But on last night’s Arrow, some DCU parents finally have something good happen to them.
Arrow’s last episode was lackluster, but “Haunted” more than makes up for it. This episode offers up one delight after another. John Constantine brings the magic—quite literally. But he’s still only the second best character this episode.
“Beyond Redemption” was an episode of Arrow that aired on television. That’s all anyone will ever have to say about it. Its primary feature was disappointment, but each of these storylines did have at least one highlight. Spoilers ahead...
“Restoration” gives us exactly what it sounds like it will give us. After the turbulence of last season, the show irons out its rough edges and sets the stage for the next big thing. while positioning several more potential “big things” for us to anticipate.
“The Candidate” has some standout action scenes—though when it comes to this season’s narrative, the show is still finding its feet. But then, near the end of the episode, Arrow does something we never even imagined it could do. You’ll know it when you see it.
Arrow is back, and its first episode, “Green Arrow” is mashing all our emotional buttons! If you like sappy romance, it’s got you. If you like angsty bromance, it’s got you. If you like ladies being superheroes, it’s got you. And if you just want to figure out this season’s latest tragic mystery, it has got you.
Last night’s Arrow was the craziest thing I’ve ever seen. That’s saying something, considering the fact that I’ve seen every single previous episode of Arrow. But none of the previous episodes forced me re-think the very title of the show like the season 3 finale just did.
Last night’s Arrow episode, “This Is Your Sword,” combined some really cool stuff with some very bad stuff. Some of the bad stuff was “bad” as in evil and tragic. But some of it was just bad.
In this episode of Arrow, so many things suddenly became clear. By the end we learn the real hero of the season, Ra’s al Ghul’s real villainous scheme, and the point of those tedious Hong Kong flashbacks.
During the flashback in last night’s episode, “The Fallen,” a deadly bioweapon is released because of Ollie’s butterfingers and no one cares. No one cares, because the A-plot gives us something we’ve been waiting for. Hell, we’ve been dying for it. But never in a million years did we think it would happen like this.
My response to last night's episode of Arrow? A non-sarcastic slow clap. The show set 'em up and it knocked 'em down, and I did not see it coming at all. Perfect, Arrow. Perfect.
Last night’s Arrow episode, ”Public Enemy,” was so great. It was like a tasting menu of old characters in new combinations, as well as a few classic pair-ups. We’ll walk you through the moments that no Arrow fan should miss.
Ever been a guest at a wedding and thought, "Oh, I wish this would last forever!" No? This episode will make you think that. The wedding is wonderful. The rest is very bad indeed.
Everyone who watched the Arrow episode a few weeks ago knows what the title of this episode, "The Offer," means. And we know what the answer will be. So the rest of the episode was just about serving up a steaming cup of crazy, using each character's particular talents in that area. Spoilers ahead...
They've been talking about Nanda Parbat since season one, so you know an episode entitled "Nanda Parbat" is going to be either a huge let-down or one of the season's best offerings. I thought, for a long time, it was going to be the former. I was wrong.
On last night's Arrow, Ollie and Thea have come to Ollie's old island to train. The title of the episode was "The Return," but we all know what its title should actually be: The Wrath of Khan.
"Canaries" was an odd episode. Characters did a lot of zig-zagging, sometimes emotionally, sometimes geographically. But within the chaos, here are five perfect moments for us to savor.
The beginning of "Midnight City" has a case of the sads. Let's be honest; Arrow has had too many cases of the sads lately. The show itself seems sick of its gloomy tone, which is probably why by the end it goes completely crazy. Let's talk about that.
