Critic reviews for Sara
Poor Katie Cassidy has gotten the short end of the stick since the show began, so it's nice to see she's gotten some real material to play as Laurel grapples with her sister's death.
Maybe Oliver Queen is just doomed to a life of darkness and hardship. At least it makes for engaging television.
Arrow's least-liked character steps up to the plate, and it's a disaster. But it's a hell of an entertaining one.
With such a compelling cast of characters, let's hope that Sara's loss is the last that Arrow fans will have to endure for the foreseeable future.
What's cooler: Dueling archers on motorcycles, Oliver pitching himself out a window while simultaneously shooting a "batarang" arrow into the sky, or catching your opponent's arrow and turning around to shoot it back into him?
