Critic Consensus: "Beyond Redemption" pays as close attention to character fireworks as it does to action beats, with stars Stephen Amell and Paul Blackthorne both turning in some of their best work yet.

Critic reviews for Beyond Redemption
Canary shows up first and demolishes dude who took out her Canary Cry. It was pretty dope.
What a jam-packed episode, huh?! So much happened this week on Arrow, but the most important thing needs to be shouted from the rooftops: the salmon ladder is baaaaaaack!
Stephen Amell was finally given an opportunity to dig into some emotional material without flashing back to the island, and it paid off. That was one of the best scenes he's had in a very long time.
"Beyond Redemption" was an episode of Arrow that aired on television. That's all anyone will ever have to say about it. Its primary feature was disappointment.
Both Stephen Amell and Paul Blackthorne put on great performances, backed up by some of the better lines we've seen in the show.
