This episode adds yet another twist to that CW genre tone: A healthy dose of '90s flair.
The end of "Star-Crossed" sets the table for another CW crossover event, with a dimension bending character named Music Meister infiltrating the DEO and attacking Supergirl, warping her to some far off world where she's about to take the stage.
Try to find a way to tell that story in a more interesting way, as opposed to going with the story pretty much everyone expected weeks ago.
This is the longest review on one of these I've ever done! That signals an episode worth watching. It had its flaws, but ultimately I believe it will likely spark conversations among those who watch it on topics like truth, ethics, trust, and forgiveness.
Supergirl had a fairly rough week, with an episode that didn't take full advantage of two key new characters.
Hopefully next season some of these crossovers will actually happen on Supergirl.
Ultimately, the episode works because this cast is really, really strong. Melissa Benoist is cranked up to 11 for almost the whole thing - bubbly without being twee, determined, but believably hurt.
