Critic Reviews for Shelter From the Storm

The cape tricks continue to be a nice addition to the back half of the season's choreography, which goes a long way toward keeping the relatively few number of villains from feeling a bit stagnant.

True to its title, "Shelter from the Storm" reduces the scope and stakes -- a move as smart as it is welcome.

The more interesting of the issues is Lena and the Girl of Steel.

The most surprising confrontation was saved for the end of the episode when Kara got an earful from Lena.

Reign makes it to the mansion first, and what follows is a fantastic, spot-on homage to the booby traps outside of Lex's abandoned subway lair in the 1978 Richard Donner Superman film.

I came away from this one absolutely brimming with stuff to talk about.

Lena's right, there are thousands of things on Earth that can kill humans, but there's only one thing that can kill Supergirl, and she has a point that it does make it personal.

This isn't so much an emotional roller coaster as an emotional bumper car ride, jerking one way and next with tense confrontation.

During the fight, Reign's mask comes off, and Ruby sees her mom is Reign. Those are going to be some expensive therapy bills.

One of the strongest parts of the episode was the way in which Kara had to face some real consequences for her treatment of Lena (not to mention having one of her best friends spy on Lena for her) last week.
