Critic reviews for Honor Thy Father

Even though the flashbacks sort of freak me out...I do think it's important for us to understand what went down on the island.

A striking improvement on the underwhelming pilot episode - sharper, pacier, altogether more emotionally engaging and with some intriguing hints at a wider backstory.

Paying particular attention to the Queens affords the narrative time to expand the show's characters and throw in epilogue scenes that connect elements to the larger conspiracy involving Moira.

We're very much enjoying the cinematic quality of 'Arrow,' which manages to hold onto its 'Batman Begins'-style tone through its second episode.

Arrow is either still setting up its formula - which is fine - or settling into one, which isn't.

What is mentioned in the episode? Us going three steps farther into Hamlet, and the most interesting thing yet about the island.
