Critic Reviews for Crossfire

The subplot of the night goes to Alex, who slowly comes to terms with her attraction to Maggie the detective. As far as coming out stories on television go, I thought it was really well handled.

This was one hour packed full of laughs, heartwrenching confessions, and plenty of action. Basically, it was Supergirl at its best.

The episode is back on strong Supergirl form.

"Crossfire" provides stellar character work and development across the board, providing stellar moments for the show's many characters both old and new.

Part of the plot's success goes to Chyler Leigh, who made the most of her character's small moments in the episode.

"Crossfire" has a warm, enjoyable humanity that so many of the show's first season episodes were missing. Supergirl has become a series I enjoy much more with my heart than my brain, which explains why I had so much fun watching tonight's episode...

Supergirl has become my favorite DC superhero show currently airing this year and "Crossfire" exemplifies why.

Truly emblematic of Supergirl: the constant, shared search for identity while maintaining a heroic core.

Alex Danvers: mature adult who's able to acknowledge she still has a lot to figure out. She certainly felt like my super girl this week.

This show is obviously trying to pull a page from the Arrow-verse playbook, by bringing some of the core cast into the vigilante lifestyle. But this just felt like to much, too soon.
