No consensus yet.
This episode works through some good, if familiar ideas about Oliver and his vigilantism, but the episode doesn't elevate this material like it did in the Huntress' original two-parter.
Though I wasn't always a fan of Helena...she plays the part of the psycho ex quite well. Fun for viewers, bad for Oliver.
After a run of strong stories this is ultimately a low-wattage instalment of Arrow.
Ultimately, the episode was stifled by all the subplots, and the lack of focus on the Huntress failed to represent the character in a way that was as appealing as her introduction.
The action and drama prove solid overall, with some particularly good fight scenes between Oliver and Helena, as well as Roy Harper and the thieves, but ultimately "The Huntress Returns" feels like something of a missed opportunity.
The secret of Oliver's hidden identity is taking a toll on he and everyone - and it started to show during "The Huntress Returns."
Jessica De Gouw's return as the crossbow-wielding vigilante was disappointing in several respects. But more than anything, it was frustrating to see the direction the writers have chosen to go with her character.
Despite how long it may have taken, Arrow has proven it can prop up initially anemic characters, even some I basically dubbed irredeemable months ago.
Overall, 'The Huntress Returns' over-eggs the pudding just a little - with too many plot threads competing for the viewer's attention.
That serves to underscore the overriding problem with "The Huntress Returns": Everything is done for the convenience of the larger story, presumably to clear the stage for the final episodes of the season.
Helena Bertinelli is back! She teaches everyone around her a lesson in pain, but gives the viewer lessons in delight.
