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.

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

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

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