Critic Reviews for Home Invasion

A lot happened in tonight's episode. But the best of it, at least for me, happened on the island.

"Home Invasion" mostly just restates the points about Oliver's destructive behavior that "Unfinished Business" already made more eloquently, but it at least moves us a lot closer to the endgame as Oliver's inner circle deteriorates like never before.

While "Home Invasion" rallies hard to a strong finish, a good half of the episode is a reminder that we could all use a a break from "case of the week" Arrow.

"Home Invasion" began moving the final chess pieces into place as Arrow Season 1 races to its finale. And it's certainly shaping up to be a wild ride.

Jul 26, 2018 | Rating: 4.2/5 | Full Review…

A strong episode, enhanced by a genuinely memorable villain.

Jul 25, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Thankfully, the development of Roy Harper's need to repay the Hood for saving his life, and Yao Fei's insistence that Oliver's time on the island is at an end, help to give the episode some much needed spark.

All in all, a fine return to form that launches us into the final episodes of the season, though not without some minimal stumbling.

Jul 25, 2018 | Full Review…

Home Invasion' boasts a strong villain, satisfying episodic arcs for Oliver, Tommy and Diggle, plus decent character moments for the likes of Laurel and sidekick-in-the-making Roy Harper.

Jul 23, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Hinging an episode on how much the audience cares about a fairly contrived romantic entanglement is awfully risky, yet "Home Invasion" mostly works.
