Team Arrow's reactions to Sara's murder reveals how much the show has matured and the depth of each characters' development.
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.
While, "Sara" might not be as poignant as last season's "City of Blood," it still does a decent job of handling Sara's death.
The effort is not entirely successful, but enough of "Sara" works to justify the more meditative storytelling.
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?
It says a lot about how far Stephen Amell has come as an actor, and how we've done with Oliver since the start of the show, that moment when he realizes he's standing right where the killer stood was powerful and underplayed.
The series took a huge chance by switching things up in the beginning and adding Sara to the Lance family as the first Canary. It feels, finally, like it will pay off.
The action takes a bit of a backseat to the drama in this week's episode, which makes sense considering the shocking conclusion of their season three premiere.
With the sudden and shocking death of Sara Lance last week, fans had to expect a somber episode... [but] Sara's death served as a dramatic jumping-up point for the players of Arrow, characters who fundamentally changed due to the loss of one of their own.
The late Sara Lance lends her name to this episode and it feels entirely fitting. Her loss not only overshadows the drama but drives it.
