Critic reviews for Broken Dolls
It was apparent even from the smaller scenes with Oliver and Slade that a significant budget had been allotted for the hour...allowing "Broken Dolls" an unexpectedly adventurous feel to accompany its significant reveals.
Although perhaps not the most consistently great hour the series has produced, "Broken Dolls"...introduces intriguing plot turns that could very well set up an dynamite season.
Overall I was happy with the episode. The only thing I'm dreading is the inevitable, Oliver needs to teach Black Canary an important lesson about how killing is wrong.
This episode offered plenty of momentum on several fronts, a terrifically creepy villain, several memorable action scenes, and easily the coolest villain tease of any episode so far.
'Broken Dolls' perhaps features less grandiose action than we've come to expect from Arrow, but this is a more intimate tale than usual, so that feels only right.
