"City of Heroes" delivers on everything Arrowverse fans have come to expect in a season premiere - exciting action, substantial suspense, and plenty of shipping fodder.
This episode clarifies just what the first season was trying to accomplish, and that knowledge allows for greater appreciation of what this new season will attempt to do.
Even if you're shipping them, I think you'd agree it's way too early to get them together.
It's an unsurprising, but logical step in the maturation of not only Oliver Queen, but of the show itself.
"City of Heroes" gave us plenty of strong action sequences with the hood copycats...and enough tantalizing tidbits of the season to come, moving at a brisk enough pace to avoid overstaying its welcome.
It was a great season opener and I'm glad we don't have to waste more than one episode on Oliver trying not to be a hero.
The fight scenes and actions are fantastic and continue from exactly where the series left off at the end of last season.
Arrow 's always excelled at action sequences and there are some corking setpieces here.
"City of Heroes" wasted little time throwing Ollie and his friends back into the thick of things, and it introduced two intriguing new female characters to boot.
In its season two debut, [Arrow] shows no signs of scaling things back. In fact, it pushes itself even further, with glorious results - 'City of Heroes' is, without a shadow of a doubt, the best episode of Arrow yet.
Arrow is clearly looking to go all in with its superhero approach this season.
"City of Heroes" successfully sets a top-notch standard for the new season and expertly builds off the momentum and good will the show earned from last year's dynamite conclusion.
