Critic reviews for Blood Bonds

[Supergirl] is pleasantly surprised to find out about Hank's true persona, and the fact that he can shape shift is going to be very, very important.

"Blood Bonds" packs a punch and still manages to put a smile on my face, in ways that have me loving both the good and the bad guys, or rather girls.

Unfortunately, meaty plot lines and fantastic moments of fan service... are forced to share time with oddly paced Teases of larger threats, strongly implying that the idea of "less being more" is a theory completely unheard of among the show's overseers.

She's not just a young woman pretending to be a dork to hide the fact that she is, essentially, a god. She's trying to be a normal person to avoid the worst excesses of the gods, those being arrogance, cruelty and capriciousness.

One of the most interesting things about Supergirl is the relationship built between Astra and Kara itself, much closer to mother/daughter than aunt/niece.

Rather than reveal herself, Kara chooses to quit. This is when Supergirl pulls off yet another Perfect Superhero Moment, something it's proving itself to be really good at doing.
