Critic reviews for Code of Silence
Nearly everyone in this episode suffers from naive notions that they really should be over by now.
Sees next to nothing of substance happen with very little progression of the season's plot arc.
One of the most entertaining episodes of Arrow yet this season. From all the smaller moments and quotes... to all the big action scenes and stunts, this hour was fantastic.
At this rate, I really hope that the final confrontation between Damien Darhk and Oliver in this season is a bounty of quippy bad jokes, because the two characters happen excel at this pastime.
When an entire hour becomes rather insignificant other than the final five AHA minutes, I have to wonder why... All in all, it was very disappointing.
