Critics Consensus

An otherwise middling season makes "My Name is Oliver Queen" entertaining enough, but a bit anticlimactic for a season finale.

Episode Info

Season 3 ends with everyone in danger when Ra's al Ghul implements his final plan. Meanwhile, Oliver/Al Sah-him must decide if he is strong enough to take on his new role, and what it will mean for everyone on Team Arrow and on his own soul.

Critic Reviews for My Name Is Oliver Queen

After a year where Oliver struggled with his dual identity, he finally gets clarity in the finale but it's not enough to redeem a messy and frustrating season.

Despite the season's problems, there is something to be said of the fact that almost no one could have predicted this ending at the beginning of the season.

This episode wasn't nearly as much of a gut punch as the two previous years had been, and that's a good thing. The show needs to establish that sometimes good people can win and revel in their victories a bit.

Usually season finales are when Arrow shines the brightest. Not so this year. This episode didn't have a lot of tension going in, and it failed to build the final Oliver/Ra's showdown to a proper crescendo.

Well, it did surprise me. Pleasantly. And with a minimum of heartbreak.

The season never really kicked into gear like either of the previous ones.

Few would have predicted that this is how the show's darkest season would resolve itself, but then this sense of unpredictability is what has always made, and what continues to make, Arrow such an exciting watch.

This season was a mess. It suffered, perhaps, from the emphasis on its sister show The Flash. It suffered from confusing plots, lackluster villains, weird character drama, bad Hong Kong flashbacks, and a romance that just didn't work.

If you say you missed the shark jumping in Arrow Season 3 Episode 23, I'm going to have a hard time believing you, because that was the worst episode of the series and served absolutely no point.

So after fans picked themselves off the floor from the shock of this moment, things settle down in Starling City once more.

I called out "Arrow" for a disappointing ending to the Ra's Al Ghul story, but I'll also give it a round of applause for pulling off a season that brought in elements from the Batman mythos and merged them into the structure of "Arrow."

Well, where on earth are we going to go after a finale like that?
