Arrow - Season 4, Episode 22 - Rotten Tomatoes

Lost in the Flood



Critic Consensus: "Lost in the Flood" feels like a letdown after the monumental stakes of its predecessor, likely to frustrate some viewers with its narrative wheel-spinning in the face of apocalypse and baffle others with its ensemble's flippant reaction to a nuclear holocaust.

Critic reviews for Lost in the Flood

Last week Team Arrow let a nuclear bomb touch down on American soil, killing tens of thousands of people. This week, our heroes crack jokes... It's as if everyone involved, or nearly everyone, has realized just how absurd this is all becoming.

Even in the middle of the nuclear apocalypse, Arrow somehow managed to find time to fit in some Smoak family drama. It was genius, really.

My favorite scene was when Donna thought Felicity was pregnant, and she jumped up and down like a schoolgirl, high fiving Curtis. It gets points just for the absurdity of it considering the situation.

We're on the edge of our seats now. It could be that Damien Darhk makes for a particularly compelling villain... Or maybe, just maybe, it's that, this time, the story is global. It's not just about Team Arrow, it's about us.

"Lost in the Flood" as a title was a great descriptor for the aimlessness of tone, direction, and plot in this hour, an unforgivable offense after a season that started off strong and went on to fizzle.

"Lost In The Flood" is a really good episode, even if it's possible to imagine the story working even better if preceding episodes had built more directly to the conflicts explored here.
