Arrow’s Love Letter To Fans Was Missing One Important Thing: Felicity Smoak

Letters from Fangirlish: Why I’m Finally Giving Up On ‘Arrow’

Dear Arrow, We’ve been through a lot, you and I. Six years, seven seasons, five crossovers, roughly 130 reviews and countless editorials. I’ve stuck with your through the good – Olicity, OTA, Slade Wilson and Prometheus – and the bad…

My Farewell Letter to Felicity Smoak: I'll Carry You With Me Forever

‘Arrow’ is wasting Felicity Smoak’s final episodes

‘Arrow’ 7×19 Review: ‘Spartan’

Even John Diggle wasn’t enough to save this episode for me. Maybe it’s the fact that it’s the end of the season, and I’ve had to put up with a lot on this show this year. Maybe it’s the fact…

What Does Emily Bett Rickards’ Departure From ‘Arrow’ Mean For Felicity?

It really feels like Arrow didn’t really begin until Felicity Smoak graced our screens in the show’s third episode. Before that, we had a dark shell of a man that was destined to grow into our central hero and it…

‘Arrow’ 7×16 Review: ‘Star City 2040’

When Arrow delivers episodes that manage tell compelling stories that thrill and excite and provide hope for stability on this show, episodes like “Star City 2040,” my instant reaction is to embrace it. But then logic kicks in, and I’m…

'Arrow' 7×13 Review: Holy Smoaks!

'Arrow' 7×11 Review: 'Past Sins'

As long as Arrow wants to focus on the past — by bringing in Emiko Queen and reviving the Suicide Squad, sorry “Ghost Initiative” — let’s talk about the past. I remember when I used to look forward to Arrow.…

‘Arrow’ 7×08 Review: ‘Unmasked’

Arrow’s “mid-season” finale did everything it needed to do heading into its winter hiatus. Which is weird, given that the crossover event is next week. But on the strictly Arrow front, we’re done until January. Oliver returned home from Slabside…

‘Arrow’ 7×07 Review: ‘Slabside Redemption’

There was a ton of hype surrounding Arrow’s seventh episode, which people deemed a work of art. But the only thing I deemed a work of art was Oliver and Felicity’s brief reunion that reawakened the dormant fangirl within! “Slabside…

'Arrow' 7×05 Review: 'The Demon'

Do you guys see that? There in the distance? It looks like a light. Like a light at the end of the tunnel that involves Oliver imprisonment and subsequent separation from his family. We’re almost there. For five episodes where…

‘Arrow’ 7×04 Review: ‘Level Two’

Is the Arrowverse better for its vigilantes? That’s a question that Arrow seems to be exploring this season as we continue to explore this debate between the need for vigilantes and how vigilantes are hurting the system. Vigilantes are vigilantes…

'Arrow' 7×03 Review: Crossing the Line for the Greater Good

‘Arrow’ 7×02 Review: ‘The Longbow Hunters’

There’s a different vibe in this seventh season of Arrow. There’s this sense of hope and optimism that this season can almost consistently provide satisfaction. There’s this feeling that this change is showrunner is the exact change that this show…

‘Arrow’ 7×01 Review: "Inmate 4587" aka HOLY S**T

Since every tease of Arrow’s season 7 premiere used the same two words, I’d like to start my review the same way: HOLY. SHIT. That is how you do a season premiere. There was action, emotion, suspense, intrigue, good writing,…
