Critics Consensus

Laurie Metcalf's welcome cameo is not the only highlight of "Schott Through the Heart," an episode that grows darkly emotional while still exercising the trusted Supergirl sense of fun.

Episode Info

When Winn's father dies, his estranged mother reappears, trying to reconnect and to explain why she abandoned him all those years ago. Winn is too embittered from his rough childhood to forgive her, but when a copycat Toyman attacks, the two must work together to stop him. Mon-El tells Kara something important about the Worldkillers, and Alex becomes suspicious of Myr'nn's recent behavior.

Critic Reviews for Schott Through the Heart

A great episode to return with. It expertly blended emotion, humor and canon. It also was a tremendous showcase for Jordan's Winn, who deserves more time to shine.

Here's a sentence I never thought I'd be able to write: The big Laurie Metcalf episode of Supergirl has finally arrived!

Jeremy Jordan killed it with his performance.

While the return episode isn't quite as Worldkiller-heavy as I might expect, it still packs an emotional wallop to bring us back with a bang.

This was a fun episode. I love the Toymaker -- even if he is technically dead. And Laurie Metcalf is a national treasure, so I love that it is now canon that she is Winn's mom.

Supergirl is back after a (too long!) hiatus with "Schott Through the Heart," a surprisingly dark and emotional episode that throws us full-force back into the emotional lives of our favorite characters.

There was plenty of strong character drama to go around, and the episode managed to succeed despite this disappointing new take on a classic Superman villain.

Jul 26, 2018 | Rating: 7.7/10 | Full Review…

This episode benefited from a relatively light touch with the Danvers sisters' love lives, especially Kara's.

[Laurie Metcalf's] presence pretty much automatically elevated "Schott Through the Heart" above par. Supergirl doesn't let her go to waste either

Supergirl's return wasn't exceptional, but it was good.
