Critic reviews for The Darkest Places
Some may find that this episode packed too much in, but overall I loved the meaty nature of it.
By no means is "The Darkest Place" a terrible episode, but its focus on some of the show's less successful elements this season makes for a weaker showing all around.
Darkest Place wasn't the best episode this season, but it featured some really strong action sequences and rarely had a dull moment. Keeping that pace will be tricky.
There was a lot that happened on Supergirl this week, and we got some big fun reveals, but none of the plot points in the episode seemed to have any depth or go anywhere.
It was a strong episode, though following last weeks' tearjerker was always going to be a bit of a challenge; somehow Supergirl has only gotten better.
