Arrow: "Burned": IGN Review

Arrow's finally back from its mid-season break, a little slower than most shows. The mid-season finale ended on a dramatic note, as Ollie's Christmas was ruined by his first combat encounter with rival archer and ruthless mastermind Malcolm Merlyn. Just like his viewers, Ollie took a several week vacation, but he wasn't exactly refreshed and ready to hop back into action as "Burned" opened.

I wasn't expecting to see Ollie as badly affected by his defeat as he was, but that allowed for some interesting drama as our hero struggled to get his head back in the game. (Arrow, TV) 7.2/10

I think this is too low of a rating. This come back episode was a really good one to start off with. His head wasn't back in the game yet and he needed to figure out why. I thought it deserved at least an 8.5.

Yeah, I thought it was a pretty good episode. His ego took a hit and was shown that he can be taken down.
