Critic Reviews for My Name is Emiko Queen

It's nice that after the tumult the pair dealt with after Oliver returns from Slabside... I just wish that we are able to get more of this emotional aspect throughout the hour and have it directly interwoven with Emiko's story.

After ten episodes of the season, the flash-forwards have been less delightfully twisty and more (debatably) tedious.

Proved to be a serviceable midseason premiere that sidelined its primary narrative in order to give us some much-needed answers, and it was a whole lot of fun in the process.

A mixed bag... There's a lot of balls in the air here, and there needs to be some air tight explanations to make it all make sense.

It sets out to establish a new status quo, and it mostly succeeds in that, frankly moving its pieces into new positions and adjusting the show's balance in a fundamental way.

It might have been too soon for Arrow to dedicate a lot of time to a character we barely know... The show relies too heavily on them before Arrow Fanatics get the chance to form a connection.

Everyone's back in Star City and in the correct bodies this week, so now we've got some time to focus on Ollie's little sis. If only that were time well spent.

A truly in-depth look at Sea Shimooka as Emiko. So far, she's fine in what's turned out to be a fairly straightforward role. Shimooka has the necessarily physicality and brooding darkness, but the series isn't calling for much else just yet.

The episode sets up a very interesting distinction between Oliver and Emiko... We're dealing with a redemption vs. revenge dichotomy here.
