Tv Season Info

The Season 2 adventures of Arrow (based on DC Comics hero Green Arrow) begin with Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) returning to Starling City after the Undertaking and discovering that things are in worse shape than he imagined. Oliver's major foe is Slade Wilson (Manu Bennett), who becomes the villainous Deathstroke after being injected with the strength-inducing serum mirakuru. Slade wants to kill Oliver because he blames him for Shado's death on the island. But he's not the only thug who causes trouble for either Oliver or Arrow. Oliver gets into a heated battle with China White (Kelly Hu) and Bronze Tiger (Michael Jai White) over stolen medical supplies. Shrapnel (Sean Maher) sets off bombs in Starling City. The Clock King (Robert Knepper) opens bank vaults using advanced technology. The Huntress (Jessica De Gouw) returns and takes hostages at the courthouse when her father is arrested. And the League of Assassins target Oliver and Canary (Caity Lotz). Elsewhere, Laurel (Katie Cassidy) fears for her job when Sebastian Blood (Kevin Alejandro) exposes her drug addiction; and Diggle (David Ramsey) pursues Deadshot (Michael Rowe) in Russia.

Critic Reviews for Arrow Season 2

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (2)

The reliably enjoyable Arrow often leaves more expensive and highly touted shows in its dust.

Dec 3, 2013 | Full Review…

Arrow possesses an intelligence that shines through its TV-budget production values, which aren't too shabby.

Dec 3, 2013 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

While it's always going to be Oliver's story, it's nice to see the other players having their own lives, even if they do ultimately tie in to what's going on with Oliver and his journey from vigilante to hero.

Jan 18, 2019 | Full Review…

Its 23-episode arc moved with a momentum that has yet to be topped, and Season 2 matched Season 1's grit with the show's current DC fidelity, exemplified what the show, and the Arrow-verse as a whole, can do at its peak.

Jul 11, 2018 | Full Review…

Arrow season two cranks up the volume from what season one gives us.

Jul 11, 2018 | Full Review…

The players come together right off the bat.

Jul 11, 2018 | Full Review…

To be honest, it just felt good to be back in Starling City, and the writers managed to set up plenty of intrigue for the coming season.

Oct 10, 2013 | Full Review…

All in all, pretty solid season opener.

Oct 10, 2013 | Full Review…

It's exactly where I would expect it to be for the premiere, as the writers are masters at pacing things out, as we learned when Arrow Season 1 ended with a perfect crescendo.

Oct 10, 2013 | Rating: 4.2/5 | Full Review…

This week's episode comes after a brief hiatus due to the Olympics, but it was definitely worth the wait. Packed full of great action, character moments and teases for what's to come, "Time of Death" was another winner for The CW's hit show.

Apr 4, 2014 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

Arrow and Roy's developing relationship/partnership/etc. makes for the crux of this episode, and it is not only the best material of [episode 12, "Tremors"] but some of the best of the season.

Jan 30, 2014 | Full Review…

With "City of Heroes," the creative team has hit the ground running, delivering a fast-paced premiere sure to placate anyone who feared a sophomore nosedive in quality.

Audience Reviews for Arrow: Season 2

  • Dec 30, 2020
    Strong live action dc tv show Season. This season introduced death stroke , black canary , suicide squad and the flash . The episodes in this season are great but episode 15 -23 are the strongest episodes in this season
  • Dec 10, 2020
    The amazing show is good
  • Sep 18, 2020
    As if this show couldn't get and better. The CW up our expectations by giving us Arrow Season 2. This season of Arrow is absolutely amazing with a fantastic storytelling, amazing villain, amazing plot wist, and fantastic flashbacks his season of Arrow got everything that made season 1 great and made even better somehow. With the main villain being Slade Wilson you get to see how the Island not only changed Oliver but also changed Slade. You see how the flashbacks connect with the story and how Oliver had to make an impossible choice and by making that certain choice impacted what happened after the island. The final battle between Slade and Oliver is amazing and the fact that every couple seconds you get flashbacks to where Oliver and Slade are fighting on the cargo ship and you see how Oliver has changed by not killing Slade the second time around. Overall this is the best season that my dad and I have watched so far.

    When I first watched this season I thought it was way better than the first season, but upon rewatch I found myself not liking it as much. It's good for the most part, but I think they took a step in the wrong direction. The show seems to be less focused on Oliver and more focused on the Lance family. Oliver also is significantly less intimidating in this season and more of a screw up. The flashbacks were a little boring to me as well. Other than those things, I liked the season. It's decent.

    This is a awesome series its badass
  • Aug 09, 2020
    Still my favorite season of the Arrow series. The flashbacks, the origin story, the action, the villain played by Manu Bennett are simply superb! The best Deathstroke ever portrayed!
  • Jul 31, 2020
    With a fantastic take on Deathstroke and some strong new characters, Arrow just keeps getting better.
  • Jul 06, 2020
    Loved The Season. Season 1 set this up so good. With Season 2 expanding on what we saw on Lian Yu with Oliver and Slade. With Oliver finding new things out about his past set up for a finale that was awesome, and made me hoping for more awesome stuff from Season 3.
