IGN: Despite the fact that I’ve tended to rate new episodes of Arrow higher than those of Flash in the past few weeks, I’m more concerned about the state of the former as we move closer to the season finale. Season 3 has struggled to develop a clear sense of purpose and direction. As I’ve said in the past, when you compare the state of this season to how the show was faring with the Deathstroke conflict last year, the overarching conflict hasn’t come together as neatly or elegantly. With that in mind, it was disappointing to have an episode like “Suicidal Tendencies” come along. This episode tried to split its focus between two completely different storylines, and in the end did neither enough justice.
