Critic Reviews for The Demon

The Demon was another complicated juggling act for Arrow leading to an episode that was largely uneventful.

Somehow exceeded expectations, furthering the important storylines while providing us with some closure for the old ones. Throw in some genuinely shocking moments, and you have what was undoubtedly the season's best episode yet.

With Talia and Oliver teaming up to find information about Dr. Parker, the Slabside arc is elevated to a new level.

"The Demon" has incredible fight scenes, a great hero moment for Oliver, and some solid sound design, but the ladies coming together despite their deep, deep differences was the episode's shining star.

Just when I thought Arrow couldn't get any better, it's turned into Prison Break... well, on a very small scale. I was half-expecting Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell to come in with the assist.

At first, I found the reveal annoying... but as the episode continues, it soon becomes rather fitting that Oliver would run into his former mentor right as his identity is in under attack.

Having Laurel, Felicity and Dinah team up this episode was a great use of the extended cast, and it's exactly what they've needed to humanize Earth-2 Laurel along the way.

Ollie's prison ordeal remains the most compelling storyline in play right now... And all the while, the pointless Felicity/Laurel/Dinah subplot shows that the series is trying to juggle too many characters at once.

Nov 13, 2018 | Rating: 6.8/10 | Full Review…

If you were worried that some villain with a PhD was going to erase Oliver Queen, this episode proved he has more than just a little fight left in him, in grand fashion.

This episode should've been called "Female Empowerment" because the ladies were the real heroes here. After multiple seasons, Arrow has finally mastered the greatness that is female friendships.
