Critic reviews for Muse of Fire

It's an exceptionally grounded version of the flamboyant Huntress...but Australian actress Jessica De Gouw makes an impressive debut, capturing the character's mix of femme fatale allure and vendetta-minded ruthlessness.

While Helena and Oliver crossing paths as vigilantes - and later, apparently becoming lovers - is the main draw of 'Muse of Fire,' the episode also has a rather large reveal up its sleeve.

"Muse of Fire" proves to be one of the best episodes yet, effortlessly weaving cool super-heroism into honest drama about the morality of revenge, and emotional distress.

Not the greatest Arrow episode then, but a solid one.

Though I'm usually a sucker for such romantic setups - two characters who initially dislike each other trade sob stories and end up bonding - it didn't work for me here.

This week's episode of Arrow was all about the ladies...and moved more briskly than the previous six episodes.
