Critic Reviews for Leap of Faith

Yes, we knew Arrow couldn't end without finding a way for Oliver to meet Mia, but I didn't expect it to happen so soon. But that's actually what makes the twist so good. In fact, this move is classic Arrow.

Thea, wonderful Thea, has always been great, even when the show had no idea what to do with her. She's especially welcome here, because it's fascinating to see the direction that Arrow has taken her and how it has shifted her dynamic with Oliver.

Arrow continued to surprise and gift the fans with the very best they've got. And, Katie Cassidy proved herself to be a formidable director with an episode that people will be talking about for a long time.

"Leap of Faith" wandered along, but some late developments paid off the build up as Arrow carries its half of the Crisis hype well enough for another week.

Oliver and Thea's cliffside chat is a beautiful moment that illustrates how much the Queen siblings have been changed by everything that's happened to them since they last saw each other.

Arrow's writing staff -- shocker -- knows what they're doing here... We're only three episodes in, and have already had at least two universe-changing twists. What else does Arrow Season 8 have in store?

Thea has long been a bright shining light on Arrow so it was a joy to have her back- other than that, even a somewhat major character's death doesn't crack the wall of being new, exciting or even different.

Capped off by another jaw-dropping cliffhanger that threatens to change the Arrowverse forever, and the whole thing was executed to perfection by some stunning direction from Katie Cassidy.

I'm genuinely surprised by Arrow and anticipating new episodes in a way that I haven't been in years. I can't think of a better way to send off an old friend than to remember what made them so special in the first place.

Arrow's final season is spending too much time revisiting the show's checkered past rather than moving forward.

Oct 30, 2019 | Rating: 6.1/10 | Full Review…

The final season has done an amazing job of bringing old players full circle, and this was a perfect tribute to the character and a fitting farewell, leaving Thea with a new mission to reshape the League of Assassins into a League of Heroes.
