"Public Enemy" shifts Arrow's typical superhero stakes to offer a thoughtful examination of real-world problems in an episode that movingly probes grief and trauma.
Nonetheless, "Public Enemies" tackles it head on as we watch Arrow explore how traumatizing it can be when the truth about your loved ones' survival is withheld from you.
...it's hard not to see how the weight of so many storylines is tying Arrow down. We're not getting enough time with our core team, fleshing them out.
Producers have made no secret of the fact that... "Public Enemy" would completely change the DC drama as we know it, and by Grodd, they weren't kidding. What more insanity can Arrow Season 3 offer after the central shock?
This show has a way of making the adage about it always being darkest before the dawn intensely true.

For once, I kind of understood the flashbacks,
