Critic reviews for Keep Your Enemies Closer

It's rather impressive that 'Arrow' can deviate from its initial plotlines involving the League of Assassins and Sebastian Blood, keeping Oliver and Diggle's relationship in step with an episode so far removed from Starling City.

["Keep Your Enemies Closer"] bears the distinction of being merely a good episode in a season chock-full of excellent ones.

We're getting to the point in the series where bad guys from the past start re-appearing. Because unlike everyone else, The Hood did not kill them.

There were couples doing what couples do best all over last night's Arrow episode. Because this is the CW, those couples were not deficient in the looks department.

Since so much of this episode centered on developing John Diggle...and Isabele Rochev...with the least amount of Oliver-as-vigilante time as we've yet seen, it was fairly daring as far as Arrow episodes go.

A departure episode like "Keep Your Enemies Closer" is worthwhile for character development since the main storyline has been so rewarding.
