Due Process



Critic Consensus: Felicity and Laurel readily take the spotlight in "Due Process," but the season's reliance on flash-forwards is beginning to yield diminishing returns.

Critic Reviews for Due Process

"Due Process" has helped me discover my new narrative arch nemesis: these flash forwards.

Arrow upped the ante this week in an episode that saw weeks of well-paced storylines reach their boiling points. 'Due Process' tackled some of the season's core narratives head on and has left all of the characters in a very interesting place.

Seeing everyone together was fun while it lasted, even though it was far too brief. There's a lot to miss about the groups dynamics, something I never thought I'd say back when the Arrow cave was getting all crowded.

The events of "Due Process" have set the stage for an epic and long-awaited confrontation between Oliver and Diaz... Oliver battling his primary villain with sky-high stakes? Sign me up!

"Due Process" might have solved the Diaz problem if next episode manages to follow through with same energy as tonight's standout scene. If not, it's hard not to roll my eyes at the whole debacle.

This idea about not putting people in boxes and realizing they're capable of anything is driven home even further by the flash-forwards.

Due Process is perhaps the most encouraging installment of Arrow Season 7 to date.

It is so, so evident that women are being allowed to step in and have more control over these stories.

It's clear the writers want [Laurel] to start sliding into some of that old Laurel role, and her burgeoning friendship with Felicity has made for an interesting way to do it.

I continue to have more questions then answers with these flash-forwards, and unlike the Stanley storyline, it's leaving me more frustrated than excited.
