Critic Reviews for Trinity

People are likely to have a lot of feelings about how our characters react to Lena's attempts to help Sam. What really matters, though, is how effectively those reactions are handled, whatever they might be. Are they handled effectively? Well... mostly.

It's an all-out fight.

Drama needs conflict. I totally get it. But it bugs me when the conflict generated isn't based in character, but rather, in writers slightly altering a character for no reason just to force certain reactions make certain plot points inevitable

Right at the end of the episode, Lena dropped a big bomb on us.

Supergirl certainly struck gold with both the character of Sam, the tormented Worldkiller, and with Odette Annable, who plays her so beautifully.

Typically, large-scale narrative benefits from a sense of intimacy, as it grounds them in personal stakes. Here, though, the personal stakes just make the narrative seem small.

Warning: not recommended for Kryptonians who get their power from the yellow sun. Also not recommended? Going into a Supergirl episode in the latter half of this season not expecting a healthy dose [of] emotional turmoil.

The episode brings together a whole bunch of themes and plotlines that have been simmering throughout the season.

Kara & Co.'s mission atop Monday's Supergirl was simple: Locate their enemy's base, defeat the Worldkillers and save Sam, all while overcoming an ally's perceived betrayal. Wait, sorry, did I say simple?

Wow. That was ... unexpected.
