Arrow - Season 4, Episode 11 - Rotten Tomatoes




Critic Consensus: The Green Arrow himself takes a backseat in an installment that gives David Ramsey a well-deserved spotlight, while Emily Bett Rickards is saddled with a divisive, trippy subplot.

Critic reviews for A.W.O.L.

While the episode "AWOL" turns focus to John Diggle and his brother Andy, the subplot in which Felicity is taking too many meds and begins to see hallucinations of her "edgy" past self, tears the entire hour to shreds.

There were also some truly amazing Olicity moments throughout the hour, whether it was Oliver being the best, most supportive fiancé he could be.

The Flash managed to keep its numerous subplots in the air with ease while Arrow found most of them tumbling to the ground. That's been pretty indicative of this season as the ideas have been there, but the execution remains just a little off.

A fine episode with just the right amount of action, suspense, and misdirection.

It's about time we had a John Diggle centric hour, right? And this one really paid off handsomely.

The most refreshing Arrow has been in a while, and it did it all by keeping the A plot's focus on one character: John Diggle.
