Arrow does a less-than-convincing job of integrating the supernatural John Constantine into Oliver Queen's world, but the two characters play off each other to fun-filled effect.
I loved how quiet and simple David Ramsey played the scene where Diggle found out about his brother. A strong performance.
NBC's canceled Constantine series lent The CW drama its main character for a totally awesome crossover that honestly seemed too good to be true. But it happened, it was real, and it kicked some serious ass.
This episode offers up one delight after another. John Constantine brings the magic - quite literally.
All told, I'm still pretty happy so far with Season 4. Dhark is a tremendously powerful villain, though he feels extremely impersonal compared to the best villains in both Arrow and The Flash.
Constantine is a refreshing character with a unique personality and set of powers that I'd love to see more of in the DCTV universe in a similar way that Hulk is to the Marvel film universe.
This was a great episode, especially if you're a fan of Laurel and John Constantine.
Not even John Constantine could conjure up enough spells to make "Haunted" completely fix all the issues with Season 4 of Arrow. Thankfully, the magic man's appearance did bring some much needed excitement to the lumbering main story line.
Any day where Thea Queen gets a nice, juicy plot is a good day.
"Haunted," the much-ballyhooed Constantine episode, is a success simply because the writers find it so easy to integrate the character into the plot, which is about as easy as flipping a switch.
"Haunted" was a terrible mess. I'll admit to my own under-appreciation of NBC's Constantine, as well as the implicit enjoyment behind two DC heroes of different networks crossing over, if only such rushed setup hadn't cheapened that thrill.
"Haunted" was a great Arrow episode that eventually had to settle for "pretty good." Indeed, Matt Ryan and Stephen Amell's chemistry is a big part of what makes this installment sing.
It's disappointing that Constantine's role wasn't a little bigger and that a couple extraneous subplots took up valuable screen time, but on the whole, "Haunted" delivered a memorable team-up adventure.
