Critic Reviews for So It Begins

That episode ending tease was viciously effective.

"So It Begins" was another solid installment of this superhero drama. It's clear the writers are at least trying to right some of the wrongs of the past two seasons and it seems to be paying off.

I don't know what this show is -- but I'm about ready to stop calling it Arrow. In my mind, Arrow, the show I loved, ended about a season ago.

So It Begins still manages to be another solid, focused hour for the series.

It's... a fantastic hour of television, with each part of the episode clicking together to show the many battles, past and present, that are in store for Oliver.

So It Begins might have been a nod to Green Arrow's first encounter with Prometheus, but it marked another consistent episode in a vastly improved season.
