Critic Reviews for Muse of Fire

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.

"Muse Of Fire" is Arrow's first big attempt at real multi-episode storytelling.

Jul 19, 2018 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

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.

Jul 25, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

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.

Jul 25, 2018 | Full Review…

"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.

Jul 23, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

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

It was fun all the same to see Gotham's most vicious vigilante come to Starling City, and to see a descendant from Birds of Prey...actually getting some viewers for a change.

Another week in Starling City, another shocker. Actually, "Muse of Fire" gave us more than just one new bad guy.
