Critic Reviews for Medusa

As it turns out, last night's Supergirl "Medusa" only played a minor note in our crossover symphony, but created enough intrigue and set the table for what will happen throughout the week on CW.

"Medusa" is the episode that sets Supergirl back on track. After a couple of episodes that were often boring, everything about this episode was engaging.

For the majority of Supergirl's second season, we've been watching several relationships develop, across the board of the romantic, familial, and platonic. Last night's episode "Medusa" added fuel to some of these kindling fires.

I think we have the makings of a really interesting dynamic between Lena and Kara, and I'm curious to see where it goes from here.

It's remarkable how many plot threads Supergirl ties up in its winter finale. It's so neat, it almost feels like a complete season in miniature.

Like the rest of Supergirl season two, "Medusa" was an emotion-driven roller coaster of a ride that expanded this world and these characters in awesomely affecting ways.

"Medusa" was a strong conclusion to the first half of Supergirl's second season. The episode effectively contrasted the differing relationships in the Luthor and Danver families.
