In order to track down Diaz from inside prison, Oliver has to align with an old enemy. Meanwhile, in Star City, Felicity's attempts to root out Diaz are thwarted by Diggle, whose allegiance to ARGUS now requires him to keep civilians like her on the outs. Realizing that she can no longer rely on her old team or old methods, a clear-eyed Felicity resolves to find a new way to go after Diaz.

Critic Reviews for The Longbow Hunters

My enthusiasm for this season got dulled somewhat with The Longbow Hunters thanks to the Felicity can do no wrong mindset.

The season is off to a good start and I hope they keep building upon what they've set up. The character dynamic and drama is well written and well acted.

Even though I'm concerned about the villain situation, I'm not worried about the flashforwards featuring William and Roy. Actually, I'm quite excited to see where it leads.

Delivers more compelling prison drama and a shockingly good flash-forward subplot. Even the relatively weaker Team Arrow storyline is bolstered by the debut of the Longbow Hunters, a team that already lives up to its fearsome reputation.

"Longbow Hunters," takes all the larger storylines introduced in the premiere and breaks them down with precision and focus.

If Rene, Curtis, or anyone else comes in to help on this mission, which seems likely, they'll be answering to Felicity and Watson. This, this I like. Season 7 and Beth Schwartz, keep killing it, please.

Star City has a few new big bads, and they made their presence known in a big way this week -- and it all happened as the remnants of Team Arrow are arguably as fractured as ever.

In "The Longbow Hunters," Arrow delivered a Felicity twist that is both shocking and entirely logical: she's going to work with the FBI, and it could be exactly what Season 7 needs.

"The Longbow Hunters" may not have been as solid of an episode as "Inmate 4587", but it's got enough moments to keep the ball rolling.

With all of the formalities out of the way, this week's episode, 'The Longbow Hunters', allowed us to get up close and personal with the Big Bads of the season, as Ricardo Diaz introduced us to the titular threats.
