TV Review: Arrow S4E19 Canary Cry
Oliver and the team struggle to come to terms with Laurel’s death, especially Diggle, who is overwhelmed with guilt for choosing to believe Andy had changed. Meanwhile, Lance refuses to believe his daughter is dead and asks Nyssa to help bring her back.
Arrow deals with the ramifications of Laurel’s death in an interesting way bouncing back and forth between the past and present and using Oliver’s “death” as a way to compare it.
What’s really interesting with the episode is that it does a decent job of checking off a lot of the questions we the viewers might have. Can they resurrect her? Did she really die? What about all of the doctors and nurses who know?
The writers do a decent job of checking off those boxes and answering those questions quite well. All of my questions were answered at least.
I can’t say I agree with the death or think it was a good idea, but they at least wrapped things up pretty well in that department.
After a rather poor last episode, this one is better at least in the quality when it comes to its framing of the story.
Overall rating: 7.4
