Critic reviews for Dark Waters
Finally gave Olicity fans what they've been begging for ever since Felicity was introduced on the show, only to then devastate the fandom in the final shot of the episode. We're talking real devastation, people.
I have to admit, intercutting the attack with scenes of Damian Darhk going home to his adoring family and placing a star on the tree? Very nice.
A tense episode and one of the season's best, but with a very cruel cliffhanger.
Damien Darhk's master plan came to light... and it was disturbing as hell.
