Critic reviews for Crucible

"Crucible" doesn't necessarily aim to top that peak [of last week's "Broken Dolls"], though it still manages to end up with a fairly effective story in its own right.

A strong episode all around. It was great seeing Black Canary in full-on action mode while also getting a bit of her backstory.

I can't decide if the plot of this episode is flimsy, or if it just supports the emotional twists really well.

Indeed, "The Crucible" is an hour of TV defined by its twists, turns and teases.

August 2, 2018 | Rating: 8.4/10 | Full Review…

The second season of Arrow continues to outdo the first, this week highlighted by a major team-up between Ollie and Black Canary that offered new insight into the show's history.

So while the Canary plot sings - pun intended, apologies unreserved - the remainder of this week's Arrow isn't quite as strong.
