Arrow shifts focus to its fierce women with exceptional results -- if only the rest of the episode weren't stilted by the season's growing pains.

Episode Info

Ted Grant is accused of murder when a body is found strung up in the Wildcat gym. In flashbacks, Maseo asks Tatsu to help jog Oliver's memory so he can remember where an informant for China White stashed key information; and Roy shares a secret with Felicity.

Critic Reviews for Guilty

It's a nice idea to explore since Roy is finally a full-fledged member of Team Arrow this season. Unfortunately, it never quite clicks because the episodes leading up to tonight... have done a poor job of setting this dynamic up.

Tonight's episode tries to deepen a relationship between Oliver and Roy that the show never really established in the first place, at least not in its current, post-Mirakuru form. "Guilty" is then a most peculiar kind of misfire.

I don't know that any show this season for me has had so many strong episodes in a row like Arrow has.

Arrow continues to experience some growing pains as it introduces more new characters and struggles to build an overarching conflict for Season 3.

So here we are, and I want to say, Arrow, you've never looked more beautiful. You're not just women stomping around in massive heels and guys with their shirts off. You light up every network you walk into... I'm sorry. I promised myself I wouldn't cry.

It's your expected solid Arrow opening action sequence. That's good. It's got more than one vigilante in full costume working the action, so that makes it even better.

I cannot think of another episode where all of the stories tied in so well.

We're in year three of the show trying to make Laurel happen -- to the point where they killed off her much more compelling sister just so she'd be free to put on the Black Canary costume, and thus far it doesn't seem worth all the effort.

And of course, we end with the debut of a new player in Starling City, a woman sure to be fan favorite - Oliver's version of Harley Quinn and one of the most dangerous women in his life.

Staying true to its comicbook source is certainly a great way to keep the fans happy, but it helps when the show's writing, acting, and stuntwork is so much better than network TV has any right to be.

Well, this was bound to happen eventually. After roughly a season and a half of consistently solid, if occasionally uneven, installments, Arrow hits its first dud with "Guilty."
