Critic reviews for Human Target
It's not surprising that the episode couldn't write an adequate storyline for the newcomer, especially given that it was incredibly bogged down stringing connective tissue between the myriad threads it has already pulled.
The new villain had a lot of screen time and it helped me get on board with the new direction in which the show is going.
Consistency. That's all I ask. And that's precisely what Arrow isn't giving me.
While the hour presents plenty for fans of the previous Human Target show to lament its passing, the episode is much more focused on the ongoing narrative, making it feel less like a one-off installment and more like an integral part of season 5.
