Critic Consensus: The new season of Arrow appears to bring more normalcy into Oliver Queen's life, but emotional conflicts more than make up for any absent action scenes.

Critic reviews for The Calm
Considering that it must have a limited budget from The CW, this show still looks amazing in everything from the cinematography to the stunt coordination.
It only ever takes one bad thing to make Oliver Queen throw his hands up in the air and decide that his manpain takes precedence over everyone else's choices.
It's hard to imagine a better way to kick off Arrow's new season.
In "The Calm," Arrow makes its various characters adjust to the concept of fatherhood. We see them do this in various ways and are content. And then Arrow blows us out of the water.
