Critic reviews for Unchained

It had everything: epic returns (Nyssa! Roy!), shocking revelations (Felicity's father!), and it even set up a civil war within the League of Assassins. "Unchained" was off the chain!

The latest episode logistically, emotionally, and narratively made not one single lick of sense... until the very end... Well-played, Arrow, my old friend. Well-played indeed.

A very strong episode. It's cool to see Felicity get her groove back.

Oh, wait a minute, this guy is her dad. Just like everyone predicted he would be.

It was an hour of moments rather than a truly good episode of television. And, yes, there were a lot of moments during "Unchained." Some of them very good, thankfully.

Arrow's strength has never been its perfectly crafted storylines, or its over-abundance of common sense. It's always been its characters. And it's in that respect and that respect alone that this episode feels like a win.
