Critics Consensus

It was always a given that Oliver wasn't going to die, but the revelation of Ra's al Ghul's true motives gives this episode a jarring plot twist and new information about the League's mythology.

Critic Reviews for The Offer

It was a refreshing change of pace to take a step back from the League of Assassin antics we've been dealing with, and at times "The Offer" was reminiscent of some of the first season's better episodes.

What was immediately fascinating about this episode is how the flashbacks were in Starling City and the present time was on Lian Yu, a cool contrast from seasons 1-2 where it was the reverse.

Who'd have thought the Daughter of the Demon would have one of the best arcs in the episode?

"The Offer" took a great cliffhanger and built on it in a satisfying way.

Aug 7, 2018 | Rating: 8.6/10 | Full Review…

Everyone who watched the Arrow episode a few weeks ago knows what the title of this episode, "The Offer," means. And we know what the answer will be. So the rest of the episode was just about serving up a steaming cup of crazy.

In the end, The Offer was a buffer episode. Ra's al Ghul's story isn't completely over yet, but there was a certain level of expectation for this episode and I don't feel as though it was rightfully fulfilled.

Much of the early part of 'The Officer' hinges on the absorbing dynamic between Stephen Amell and the charismatic Matt Nable as Ra's - there's a lot of standing around, a lot of talk, but two riveting performances ensure your interest never wavers.

How much of everybody being angry at everybody can a person sit through over the course of forty-some minutes?

The best development was Nyssa walking away from her old man.

Once again, I'm stunned by how much this show has matured.

This show's normally so fast-paced that I'm loving this relative slow-down.

Still, the villain of the week provides a worthy test for a fractured team Arrow and a true threat to Captain Lance and his precinct.
