Suicidal Tendencies
Arrow Season 3



Critic Ratings: 14
Critics Consensus

The multiple, equally strong storylines competing for attention take away some of the impact from Oliver and Ray's confrontation -- but on the other hand, who doesn't like a wedding?

Episode Info

Diggle and Lyla get married, but Deadshot interrupts their honeymoon and tells them the Suicide Squad has been given a new mission. They are to rescue a U.S. senator from a hostage situation in the Republic of Kasnia. Meanwhile, Oliver learns about Ray's new Atom costume and the two have a heated exchange; and Felicity and Ray hit a rough patch.

Critic Reviews for Suicidal Tendencies

This week's episode, "Suicidal Tendencies," succeeded at the very least in making sure the reversion in some of the characters' mood and motives didn't come at the expense of forward progression.

Ever been a guest at a wedding and thought, "Oh, I wish this would last forever!" No? This episode will make you think that. The wedding is wonderful. The rest is very bad indeed.

"Suicidal Tendencies" tried to tackle two completely separate plot threads, and as a result managed to do neither especially well.

As Diggle-centric episodes go, "Suicidal Tendencies" probably was my favorite to date, largely because in addition to giving much-needed focus to Team Arrow's lone uncostumed hero, it served up solid B-stories on the periphery.

Considering this is a television show on the CW, Atom's flight capabilities and energy blasts look authentic for this scale.

All told a pretty strong episode, though bogged down by some of the silly relationship drama that plagues the show.

Season three took awhile to get going, has hit some real home runs, but has mostly spent episode after episode studiously restoring a season one status quo. It's not only frustrating, it's ridiculous.

It was great to see Palmer actually get in on the superhero side of things, even if his motivation was a little misguided, but pairing that with a watered-down Suicide Squad storyline just felt mismatched.

That said, good lord, is this week's episode superb. First, you have a wedding, then a Suicide Squad mission and then a confrontation between two Justice League legends.
