Arrow writers flex every narrative muscle in a masterful display of how to do a TV midseason finale right.
This was a strong mid-season finale with lots of action and plenty of big story development.
The flashbacks have been compelling enough, but "Three Ghosts" points out that, until tonight, they weren't truly vital.
At any rate, 'Three Ghosts' was a potent mix of fan service moments...and table setting for the season to come.
We're content to marvel over how deftly "Three Ghosts" manages to accomplish its Dickensian feats of exploring past, present and future, without skimping on the shiny explosions.
Besides having a great main storyline, "Three Ghosts" also finally makes good on connecting Oliver's flashback world to his present situation.
[This] mid-season finale hit me like a bolt of lightning.
"Three Ghosts" was EXACTLY the right way to have your audience chomping at the bit for your series to return.
Other than a slightly underwhelming debut for the Flash, this episode fired on all cylinders...The twists kept coming, the drama never stopped, and we have a very compelling new enemy for Ollie to contend with in the second half of the season.
Incredibly then, 'Three Ghosts' manages to outdo last week's 'The Scientist'...with a winning combination of expert action, smart humour and knowing nods to comic book mythology.
When you take out the Barry Allen stuff, the whole Brother Blood/Solomon Grundy thing really could have been wrapped up in one episode. Still, there's so much else going on here that I wouldn't feel cheated.
It was fitting that the writers left both the actors and the viewers with a little holiday treat: that iconic green mask we've been waiting to see since the beginning!
Now this is the business: Arrow bringing it's A-game to the concluding part of the mid-season finale.
