Arrow - Season 3, Episode 7 - Rotten Tomatoes

Draw Back Your Bow



Critic Consensus: An obsessive female fan of Oliver Queen draws a nice parallel to his own undesirable behavior.

Episode Info

Oliver tries to stop Arrow-obsessed serial killer Carrie Cutter, who is convinced Arrow is her one true love and will stop at nothing to get his attention. Unfortunately, her way of getting noticed is to kill people. Meanwhile, Ray asks Felicity to be his date for a work dinner with some important clients; and Thea auditions new DJs for Verdant and meets a brash DJ with whom she immediately clashes.

Critic reviews for Draw Back Your Bow

Wasn't terrible, I just super didn't care about much of anything, and the Olicity stuff is getting pretty tired at this point. Oh well! It's going to be a thing.

Arrow has been fairly disappointing in recent weeks, so it was good to see the show get back on track.

August 7, 2018 | Rating: 8.4/10 | Full Review…

In "Draw Back Your Bow," Arrow's most beloved character gets so incredibly screwed over that the episode is almost a comedy.

Draw Back Your Bow' doesn't offer up an enormously strong procedural plot, but the Cupid affair exists primarily to highlight what's really important in this show - the relationships between our central characters.

I'll admit it: I'm an Ollie/Felicity shipper. But I can't help but be excited by the prospect of Ray and Felicity getting together because they have such a great chemistry and Ollie had his chance and gave it up.

Supernatural mom Amy Gumenick had a fine showing in her debut, to the point that, well, I was rooting for the Arrow to, you know, "indulge" her fantasy for a couple of weeks.
